technology

Nanotechnology is probably the technological field of the future with the greatest potential. We will encounter numerous applications and products which, due to the smallest particles, have certain properties that offer significant opportunities and possibilities. Our TitanShield products are based on the natural mode of action of photocatalysis. Recently dismissed as a utopia, TitanShield offers innovative and environmentally friendly application possibilities through a new, optimized manufacturing process, through the smallest particle size and the addition of precious metals.

NANO TECHNOLOGIE

Nanotechnology is a key technology of the twentyfirst century and will find its way into many areas of life. German companies hold a leading position worldwide and are engaged in the responsible and sustainable handling of nanotechnology. It is important to benefit from the great potentials of Nanotechnology for economy and society in a sensible and responsible way but also to evaluate possible risks and to exclude dangers for our environment and our health.

Nanotechnology is about particles with a size of a few nanometers. One nanometer (nm) is one billionth or 10-9of a meter. Nanoparticles and nanostructures are composed of only a few atoms or molecules. They display physical and chemical properties that are distinctly different from the established bulk properties.

 

Nanoproducts are today applied manifold. Examples are additives for paints and cosmetics that add new properties to the product or coatings that act dirt-repellent, self-cleaning, or even disinfectant.

TitanShield is a NanoTitanium Dioxide contained water solution that is not toxic, dangerous, or harmful to the environment. titanium the ninth most abundant natural element on earth.

The TiO2, mainly in the anatase form, has photocatalytic properties when exposed to light (natural or artificial). Furthermore, always under the light effect, the TiO2 becomes super hydrophilic, which makes it usable as anti-fog as well. TiO2 has countless functions. In addition to the functions already mentioned, this product also reduces environmental pollution by reducing the concentration of volatile organic compounds and NOx.

Nanotechnology deals with particles that are only a few nanometers in size. A nanometer is equal to a billionth of a meter. Nanoparticles and nanostructures are composed of very few atoms or molecules and show physical and chemical properties or functions that differ significantly from surface properties known to us. Nanoproducts are already being used in a variety of ways. Examples are additives for paints and cosmetics that give the products new properties or coatings that are dirt-repellent, self-cleaning, or even disinfectant.

The photocatalysis

The titanium dioxide that is used in TitanShield® products is photocatalytic active. It forms oxygen radicals on its surface if it is irradiated by light. The activated oxygen decomposes molecules and organic dirt particles that contact the surface. The decomposed substances can be washed off easily by water, which results in a self-cleaning effect

The activated oxygen degrades also effective odorous substances and air pollutants like nitrogen oxides (NOx) and organic respirable dust. Thus photocatalytic titanium dioxide acts as air cleaning and deodorizing.

 

Further, the activated oxygen kills effectively bacteria and viruses. Even aggressive germs like SARS and H5N1 are fought reliably if they have contact with the surface. This effect lasts long because no resistances are built.

Hydrophily

The word “hydrophilicity” has Greek origins and means water love. A water drop spreads flat on a hydrophilic surface whereas water drops roll off a hydrophobic surface. A surface is called super-hydrophilic if a water drop dissolves on the surface. A hydrophilic surface enhances self-cleaning if it is sprayed with rain.
