Titan®Protect TA2202 Plastics & Paints

Titan®Protect TA2202 Plastics & Paints

Titan®Protect TA2202 Plastic & Paint Surfaces is a very fine, water-based titanium-dioxide dispersion. Its formulation is a photocatalytically active coating and is fully transparent. Upon radiation with light, the coatings will release oxygen radicals from the ambient air and thus decompose solid and gaseous substrates by oxidation („cold combustion“). TA2202 is active under UV light and artificial light up to a wavelength of 475 nm.

 

Firstly, Titan®Protect TA2202 is an in- and outdoor application. The design of Titan®Protect TA2202 provides polycarbonate, polyester, PMMA, PVC, acrylic and HDPE surfaces, but also paints and powder coat surfaces with self-cleaning properties, to protect them against pollution and against algae and mould as well as to clear the air from pollutants (e.g. NOx). The active self-cleaning titanium-dioxide particles transform all organic pollution on the surfaces, like soot, bird-droppings, stains of coffee, wine, oils, fingerprints etc. , into harmless compositions and oxygen. Calculations learn that 920 m² of titanium coated surface equals the air-filtering capacity of 80 trees. As the coating has strong hydrophilic capacities, pollution can never scale or “bake in.” 

 

Titan®Protect primers TP2221 (for rougher and absorbent surfaces) and TP2223 (for smooth, dense and non-absorbent surfaces) use the unique capacity of nano-technology to bond into surfaces and form a protective and active matrix. Titan®Protect TA2202 unites the advantages of photo catalysis and hydrophilicity. By doing this, the coating system offers a very robust and wear resistant surface. The lifetime cycle of the coating is 5 to 10 years. The active self-cleaning characteristics of titanium-dioxide will remain intact throughout this period.

  • Minimizes repair and replacement costs for damaged surfaces due to intrusion of moss, algae, mold and acids.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Do not eat, drink or smoke during application.
  • Surface must be clean and free from kit, glue, grease, mold or moss.
  • Rinse with clean and fresh water to remove soap residues.
  • Surface must be dry.
  • Ambient temperature during manual application must be at least 15° C.
  • Do not apply when ambient humidity exceeds 80%.
  • Do not apply in a dusty environment.
  • Wear protective gloves during application.
  • Wear safety goggles during application.
  • Shake container well for a minute.
  • Application of Titan®Protect TA2202 by electrostatic spraying or HVLP.
  • Recommended application quantities:
  • Plain surfaces 20 ml/m²
  • Textured surfaces 40 ml/m²
  • Absorbent surfaces 60 ml/m²
  • To form a lasting matrix, apply heat by means of paint dryer or IR radiant for 15 minutes.
  • If the item or surface allows it, the maximum curing temperature is 200° C.
  • Subject is now ready to use.
  • Clean tools, spraynozzles with water immediately after every stop.
  • Wash hands and face after every stop.As nanotechnology is about bonding into surfaces and matrices of nanoparticles need to be built up after application, the treatment reaches full performance AFTER a cure time of approximately 36 to 72 hours, which is dependent upon environmental variables, humidity and heat applied. Tests of maximum performance should be performed after full cure.

LIMITATIONS

  • If the application of heat is NOT possible when drying Titan®Protect TA2202, the coating will still work, but will wear-off due to rain, wind and frost.
  • When installing over poor, greasy or dirty surfaces, the bonding of Titan®Protect TA2202 will become erratic, and so will the self-cleaning results be.
  • Do not allow application during freezing temperatures.
