SurfaShield Cx
Category: Coatings - mineral surfaces

SurfaShield Cx is an industrial product for porous surfaces which decomposes organic stains and pollutants, prevents microbial growth, puri?es the air, removes odours. By harnessing the surrounding light, treated surfaces become Self Cleaning and Self Sterilizing.

Typical Use:

Pavements, walls, stones, cement, grout, render, plaster, mortar, unpolished marble

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: unspecified nanoparticles
Reason for Inclusion:

"As a semiconducting catalyst, SurfaShield Cx nanoparticles are activated by light to produce short-living oxidizing compounds: oxygen and hydroxyl radicals. Bacteria, Viruses, Mold, Gaseous Pollutants, Odours, Stains; they all decompose and break down to harmless inorganic compounds. Thus the application surfaces remain actively clean."  (Product Data Sheet pg. 2)
