Questions

What is an antibacterial coating?

It is a coating which contains an active antibacterial substance which prevents the spreading of bacteria, viruses and microbes on the surfaces which were treated with it.

So, what is PHOTOCATALYTIC ANTIBACTERIAL COATING ALINNA®?

The PHOTOCATALYTIC ANTIBACTERIAL COATING ALINNA® is a water based coating, in which we have incorporated a catalyst which is activated by light from the visible spectum, such that humans are safe all the time and can work in normal conditions throughout the disinfection process.

What is photocatalysis?

The catalysis, respectively photocatalysis takes place when the substance (catalyst) leads to chemical reactions in the surrounding of energy coming from light sources.

How does it work?

While activation via light from the visible spectrum of the PHOTOCATALYTIC ANTIBACTERIAL COATING ALINNA®, active radicals are generated, which do not permit the development of microorganisms on the treated surfaces. The light from the visible spectrum can be provided by a lightning body from a classical or LED light source.

Is ist safe?

Yes, it is safe, because it does not contain nocive substances and does not generate any toxic compounds.
