How Does ZnO Shield “Self-Clean” Surfaces?

Our ZnO Shield Photocatalyst is a OEM or aftermarket optically clear coating that will adhere at a 7H hardness to any interior or exterior substrate.

Once this technology is professionally installed it will provide a minimum of 10 years of 24/7 protection. By using ZnO in our proprietary formulations our ZnO Shield technology will de activate bad organic contaminates even in the absence of light (dark) something Nano TiO2 based technology is unable to accomplish.

ZnO Shield is a super hydrophilic nanotechnology thus it is self-cleaning.
Hydrophilic ~ water loving. When the surface of photocatalytic film is exposed to light, the contact angle of the phtocatalyst surface with water is reduced gradually. After enough exposure to light, the surface reaches a super-hydrophilic state. In other words, it does not repel water at all, so water cannot exist in the shape of a drop, but spreads flatly on the surface of the substrate. The water takes the form of a highly uniform thin film, which behaves optically like a clear sheet of glass. The hydrophilic nature of titanium dioxide, coupled with the gravity, will enable the dust particles to be swept away following the water stream, thus making the product self-cleaning.

Regulatory Notice and Public Disclaimer
Nano Lab Inc. makes no verbal, written or implied claims that the ZnO Shield™ coating technology will offer any protection, reduction or elimination of surface or airborne microbial, viral or bacterial contaminates. ZnO Shield™ is NOT a disinfectant, sterilizer, sanitizer or pesticide.

ZnO Shield™ is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control and practices: users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces.
