Anti-microbic action

The photocatalic nano-titanium, in presence of an artificial light or sunlight , acquires the propriety of decomposing the bacterial cells, contrasting the microbe development.

The bactericidal and virucidal effect due to the photocatalytic action of Tio2, is due to the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) among which the hydroxyl radical HO. Treated surfaces and the photo catalysis decompose the cell of the bacterium thanks to the process of oxidation.

These ones and the mushrooms will be eliminated even in the preparatory phase. It is efficient on bacterium with a high resistance to antibiotics like Staphylococcus Aureus or Escherichia Coli (food poisoning, meningitis, septicemia, and other bacterium that are dangerous for the man). The titanium dioxide does not degrade and it shows a long-term anti-bacterial and virucidal effect.
In general, the disinfection through titanium dioxide is 3 times more efficient than that one that is obtained with chlorine and 1.5 times more efficient than ozone.
