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.
