LumActiv is a patented ISO Certified, light-activated hydrophilic coating that has the incredible ability to decompose organic compounds (VOCs), odors, and most airborne noxious substances by creating hydroxyl radicals and superoxide ions during photocatalysis. This “smog eating” coating combines the air-cleaning properties of photocatalytic titanium dioxide (TiO2) with advances in nanotechnology.
"This 'smog eating' coating combines the air-cleaning properties of photocatalytic titanium dioxide (TiO2) with advances in nanotechnology. TiO2, in its nonreactive form, is commonly used as a food pigment and a UV absorber for sunblock. When this same eco-friendly material is heated to high temperatures it undergoes a change in structure giving the TiO2 its photocatalytic properties. LumActiv’s nano-scaled particles have an increased surface area when compared to conventional micro-sized particles."
