The first patented long-lasting antimicrobial solution
Introducing a new range of long-lasting sanitizing products based on a patented technology: PhotoACTIVE Ag is a liquid coating that, when drying in contact with the air, creates a long-lasting mesh with an effective anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-mold action, delivering a full year of continuous protection.
PhotoACTIVE Ag is the only product on the market to have been specifically tested against SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for Covid-19. Tests were carried out in accordance with the ISO 14476 standard, the only standard recommended by the Institut Pasteur (French foundation dedicated to the study of biology, micro-organisms, diseases, and vaccines) in the fight against coronaviruses.
- Tested against SARS-CoV-2
- 12 months of continuous sanitation
- Eliminates VOCs, NOx and SOx
- Anti odor and purifies the air
- Standards ISO 14476 and EN1276
- Hydrophilic and self-cleaning
- Environmentally friendly
In addition to its domestic application, PhotoACTIVE Ag is ideal for making already manufactured products self-disinfecting thanks to its application as a nano-layer coating.
PhotoACTIVE is a colloidal liquid solution that penetrates and attacks the lipid membrane of bacteria or viruses, thus reducing the microbial load present on treated surfaces. PhotoACTIVE is one of the most reliable long-lasting virucidal and bactericidal solutions available on the market, and is already used by many medical facilities. PhotoACTIVE is a long-lasting nanocoating that keeps treated surfaces bacteria-free and virus-free for a year, delivering continuous protection.
How it works: reactive hydroxyl radicals are generated by the photochemical reaction of our patented PhotoACTIVE semiconductor. They penetrate the lipid membrane of bacteria and viruses to degrade it. PhotoACTIVE operates within the spectrum of visible light, and the addition of an adjuvant also makes it effective in the dark. As opposed to conventional, aggressive chemicals, this technology does not merely kill viruses and bacteria – it decomposes them into gaseous substances such as CO2 and water vapor: microbes evaporate into volatile molecules!
PhotoACTIVE particles have an average size of 5 to 7 nanometers – a lot smaller than viruses or bacteria. The following diagram shows these dimensions on a proportional scale. Due to its adhesive properties, this nanostructure is able to link itself to any substrate and, through the photocatalysis reaction, can immediately degrade biological or carbonaceous molecules. Once it is dry, PhotoACTIVE is neither toxic nor harmful to human health.
