Photocatalytically active coating
for matted glass and glazed ceramics
for self-cleaning, air puriﬁcation and algae control
nC® Nadicare® TA2201 Matted Glass and Glazed Ceramics 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 organic pollution: The surface becomes self-cleaning. TA2201 is active under UV light only (black light).
TA2201 is designed for all matted glass and glazed ceramic surfaces. Not suitable for clear glass, as TA2201 will make glass somewhat foggy. For painted surfaces please refer to TA2202 or consult our technical department. TA2201 can be applied without primer. nC® Nadicare® TA2201 is both an indoor as an outdoor application. TA2201 needs somewhat preheated to hot surfaces varying between 40 ⁰C and 600⁰C.
The coating protects the surface against algae, mould, moss, germs and bacteria. The design of nC® Nadicare® TA2201 provides self-cleaning properties to the treated surfaces, to protect them against pollution. 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. As the coating has strong hydrophilic capacities, pollution can never scale or “bake in.” It also filters NOx and VOC’s from the air.
nC® Nadicare® TA2201 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 around 10 years. The active self-cleaning characteristics of titanium-dioxide will easily remain intact throughout this period.
nC® Nadicare® TA2201 GlassMetal Surfaces unites the advantages of photo catalysis with the unique capacity of nano-technology. Instead of sticking mechanically on the surface (like waxes or foils do), the use of nanotechnology ensures that the nC® Nadicare® TA2201 coating bonds into the surface chemically. The active self-cleaning characteristics of titanium-dioxide will not exhaust.
It is recommended to apply TA2201 with ESS or HVLP. Industrial application processes on clear glass are also possible. In case of industrial application, technical consultation at the nC Group R&D dept. is strongly recommended.
As the technology is about bonding particles into surfaces, matrices of particles need to be built up after application. The treatment reaches full performance AFTER a cure time of approximately 24 hours, which is dependent upon environmental variables, humidity and heat applied. Tests for performance should be done after full cure. However, the surface can be used and exposed 60 minutes after application.
