Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2006/11/28 - Many places of business are already sources of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS), which can create health problems and loss of productivity. GENS Nano-TiO2 coatings protect building’s interior and exterior from environmental bio-contamination.
MCH Nano Solutions, a nanotechnology solutions provider and global distributor of advanced photocatalyst* coatings, recently introduced its new solution for bio-contamination problems in our daily lives—in offices, homes and cars. "Poor indoor air quality and bacteria contamination can have a profound effect on your health, moods, productivity and enjoyment of your home or place of work. As a consequence, asthmatic attacks, sinus, tuberculosis, skin and eye allergies are common diseases suffered by Canadians. To make matters worse, we recently had the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) disease added to the list and Bird Flu now hard on its heels - what's next?
Our hygienic coatings reflect MCH Nano Solutions core strength as a global distribution company by transforming innovative ideas into practical every-day use for the consumer; this complete system also creates a much larger market for environmental companies, thus increasing their potential profit", reported MCH's President & CEO Miroslaw Chrzaniecki.
We have developed a complete range of environmental services based on GENS NANO-TiO2 hygienic coatings, which are safe and friendly to the environment. This technology is based on the photocatalyst ability of nano particles of titanium dioxide, which we call the 3-D Air & Surface Purification System. It is used for improving the indoor environment and for protecting against Sick Building Syndrome and bio-contamination.
Our places of business are public spaces that we share with our colleagues, employees, customers and clients. We share the air we breathe and the surfaces we touch. Our places of business are also reflections of our companies and ourselves. The upkeep and cleanliness of the indoor and outdoor spaces present an important public image. Many places of business are already sources of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS), which can create health problems and loss of productivity.
Gens-Nano-TiO2 coating transforms a treated surface into an antibacterial, anti-fungal, mold free surface, while purifying the air.
Self-cleaning and other functions will work in the presence of light to protect a building’s interior and exterior from environmental contamination.
Our hygienic coatings are formulated to incorporate light activated Nano Titanium Dioxide (TiO2), which helps to deactivate bio-contamination.
(*) Photo-Catalysis is defined as "acceleration by the presence of a catalyst". A catalyst does not change in itself and is not consumed in the chemical reaction. This definition includes photosensitization, a process by which a photochemical alteration occurs in one molecular entity as a result of initial absorption of radiation by another molecular entity called the photosensitized. Chlorophyll in plants is a type of photocatalyst called photosynthesis. Photocatalysis is when chlorophyll captures sunlight to turn water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and glucose. Photocatalysis is the creation of a strong oxidation agent to breakdown any organic matter into carbon dioxide and water in the presence of the photocatalyst, light and water.
