Nanotechnology to reduce the risk of disease transmission
Functional coatings FN® can ensure a healthier environment both in areas where there are large numbers of people, as well as at home. They are also promising new technologies to enhance the protection of patients and staff health facilities before resistant strains of dangerous bacteria and spread of infection.
Cleaning the air of odors, pollutants and allergens, protection against transmission of infections and less accumulation of greasy dirt from the air
Confined spaces with more people are ideal situations for disease transmission.
The higher concentration of people in one room, the higher the concentration of microorganisms that are included in this space from each person. The higher the concentration of pathogens in the area where we are, the higher the risk of contracting a disease. It depends on how large dose of infectious agent of the disease are exposed to and how strong our immune system.
The air we breathe inside buildings, contains a large number of allergens and a series of dangerous contaminants that are released from paints, plastics, textiles, furniture and cleaning supplies and disinfectants. If buildings are air-conditioned, the air is contaminated with bacteria and accumulating in the air conditioning. These colonies of bacteria and fungi include a series of hazardous substances in the air.
The higher the load of harmful substances our organism is exposed to, the more stress on the liver and the greater the load, and is exposes the weakening of our immune system and thus we are more prone to succumb to an infection.
The photocatalytic functional coating technology reduces the risk of disease transmission by reducing the concentration of microorganisms in a space where it is applied, and by actively cleans the air of hazardous substances that burden the immune system.
Lowering the concentration of microorganisms in the space of the room.
Light activated FN® photocatalytic surface has a strong antimicrobial effect. This effect is physical in nature, and its mechanism is based on the use of special morphology of the coating layer, the mineral composition and the use of a semiconductor phenomenon in which light energy is formed on the surface of the titanium dioxide semiconductor with microcrystals, free electrons and electron holes. Thanks to these characteristics, the coating layer very effectively entraps micro-organisms and creates conditions in which they are not able to survive. Microorganisms have no immunity against this physical mechanism. This mechanism moreover, unlike chemicals, ceasing to operate in a very short period of their use (for most they dry) operates permanently. Unlike chemicals that can dry and become ineffective, the coating changes very little even after 3 years. Due to non-chemical antimicrobial effect essentially on the use FN® 1, 2 and 3 legislative restrictions REQUIRE chemical biocides!
Public spaces and health facilities and other areas where hygienic reasons require the use of biocidal products we have developed and delivered – FN®1 BioMax containing biocidal active substances and combines the effect of physical antimicrobial mechanism.
Air purification of the Interior from Hazardous substances and allergen with FN® reduces the burden on the immune system and thus increases their ability to defend against attack by microorganisms.
Special photocatalytic efficiency and surface morphology created special coating FN® allows its use as an air purifier for effective removal of a wide variety of harmful substances, which can be dispersed in the room air. They get there, not only from a contaminated external environment, but their source could be even interior rooms (furniture, carpets, plastic) or used cleaning as agents and disinfectants. A significant source of air pollution are also colonies of fungi and bacteria deposited in the ventilation system. FN® photoactivated surface reduces the concentration of these harmful substances in the room and thereby relieves the immune system which is better able to resist infection.
COMPANY STATEMENT: MECHANISM preventive effects photocatalytic surfaces created with a special FN® COATING antifoulant PLATE terms of the law on biocides (324/2016 Coll.)
Two technologies in one functional of a thin coating layer
- Surface air purifier layer: the surface of the walls and ceilings actively clean indoor air from a wide variety of harmful substances, allergens, odors and fatty micro droplets.
- Active sanitary surfaces provide long term protection against permanent settling of microorganisms and their overgrowth.
