Our patented Photox technology utilizes a chemically coated fibrous mat that when activated by UV light, oxidizes airborne contaminants that come in contact with the surface. Enhanced technology converts volatile organic compounds at the molecular level into harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide.
Rather than coating the substrate with only titanium dioxide, we add platinum, which adsorbs contaminants not attracted to titanium dioxide (e.g. ethylene, carbon monoxide). In addition, every point illuminated on the fibrous mat becomes a reaction site capable of destroying contaminants. Unlike a filter based purification system, Photox™ devices do not generate a build-up of potentially hazardous contaminants.
