TiO2 FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the adhesion mechanism?

Titanium Dioxide Coatings products bond inorganically at the molecular level without any solvents or glue. Titanium Dioxide Coatings products are their own binders and form a nano thin, invisible, 5H hardness mineral film with excellent adhesion.

How long does Titanium Dioxide Coatings last?

There are no accelerated weathering tests for this technology. In the real world, buildings coated 5 years ago with Titanium Dioxide Coatings technology are brand new looking and self-cleaning today.

How can you remove Titanium Dioxide Coatings?

The only way to remove Titanium Dioxide Coatings is with straight ammonia and aggressive mechanical action.

Are there any health risks?

Titanium Dioxide Coatings has been tested by an EPA certified lab and shown to be non-toxic and free of any VOCs, semi-VOCs or heavy metals. Titanium Dioxide Coatings has been registered with NSF as compliant with NSF guidelines for proprietary substances and non-food compounds.

What are the costs and benefits of Titanium Dioxide Coatings?

Titanium Dioxide Coatings is a self-liquidating cost. Based on a projected 25% reduction in building maintenance and cleaning costs, a Titanium Dioxide Coatings building application should pay for itself in reduced cleaning costs within 6 months to a year. Additional benefits, yet to be quantified, include: improved building appearance, improved worker or guest experience, reduced absenteeism due to improved IAQ, reduced health costs due to improved IAQ, and reduced energy and chemical consumption.

Does Titanium Dioxide Coatings qualify for LEEDs Points?

Titanium Dioxide Coatings Inc. is applying for certification as an Environmentally Preferable Product and will be participating in the LEED program of the US Green Building Council.

Did You Know?

Titanium Dioxide Coatings products can be applied to virtually any surface, including buildings, signs, solar panels, sidewalks, outdoor furniture, holding tanks, boats, and planes.

Annual Savings

"UVPCO air cleaner for gaseous contaminants may be beneficial for the large-scale treatment of air in occupied buildings and may ultimately allow for a 50% reduction of Outside Air supply in offices and other buildings as an energy conservation measure" according to a September 2005 report on UV PCO for Indoor Air Applications issued by the Indoor Environment Department of the E.O. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

TiO2 is Safe

The European Science Commission on Cosmetics and Food Products has found TiO2 to be safe in all forms (micronized and nanosized, active and inactive) for human use and consumption.
