1. Self cleaning surfaces

Companies such as Pilkington, PPG and Cardinal have developed coatings of TiO2 for the purpose of keeping window glass clean. Similar ideas have been used in Japan for clean buildings, clean lighting systems in tunnels, and even clean concrete highways.

We too have been involved in this area particularly with respect to transparent TiO2 films for windows prepared by sol-gel techniques. We have also been developing newer means of applying these systems as well as placing these films on a variety of different surfaces. For example, the photo is showing the use of our films on a ceramic tile for the purpose of disinfection.
