Our product contains Titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is a naturally occurring oxide of titanium. Approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is considered a safe substance that is harmless to humans. TiO2 used widely as a food additive (E171), as well as in toothpaste, paint, chewing gum, and many more day-to-day applications. Exposed to light, the TiO2 nano coating catalyses a reaction, creating Hydroxil radicals. These highly reactive radicals decompose and destroy cell membranes. As most microbes are single celled, they die quickly by contacting the treated surface.
We began our work based on international researches. Our aim was to create a more durable, industry-standard solution, which can revolutionize the antimicrobial coating industry. After several years of development, the results are speaking for themselves.
