Indoor Air Quality and
    Titanium Dioxide

Indoor air quality has become a concern. Sick building syndrome, volatile organic compounds, and toxic mold are just a few of the issues.  

Titanium Dioxide deals with each and every issue when it comes to  air quality. Due to its photo-catalytic properties it breaks down any contaminant in the air and purifies it.

I can attest that it definitely cleans out smoke odor because I use it in my business on a daily basis for the last nine years. When people have smoke odor in their car, I mist the entire cabin and roll the windows down. Within eight hours the odor is gone.

Photocatalytic oxidation (or photocatalysis) can be used to convert undesirable compounds present in gas or liquid samples into carbon dioxide and water. Photocatalyst materials are “self-generating”, making the process especially attractive in moderate and long-term applications where consumable materials are to be avoided (e.g., Space Shuttle cabins and in the International Space Station).

Photocatalytic studies have traditionally been performed in the presence of a single test compound—a single component system. However, real world application of the technology will most certainly occur in the presence of multiple reactive compounds.

SIMIX A/C CERAMIC COATING MAKES IT EASIER FOR THE UNIT TO PRODUCE COLDER AIRWhat is Simix A/C Ceramic Coating?Why do you need Simix A/C Ceramic Coating?How does Simix A/C Ceramic Coating work?

Simix A/C Ceramic Coating is a non film-forming, super-hard liquid glass that will never yellow, chip, peel or crack. Just like in glass, the primary ingredient in Simix is silica (sand). That is mixed with potassium and lithium, which are very conductive. Simix A/C Ceramic Coating conducts heat. It is not an insulator, like all other coil coating products on the market today

​Air conditioners start losing efficiency the moment you install them. Tiny gaps are created by the expansion and contraction of the tubes and fins. Airborne corrosive particles and salt ions enter those microscopic gaps, corroding the unit and making it less efficient. Simix A/C Ceramic Coating fills in those microscopic gaps, leaving behind a smoother surface that improves heat transfer

Simix A/C Ceramic Coating fills in microscopic gaps caused by pollution and salt air, leaving a smoother surface that transfers heat more efficiently.Simix A/C Ceramic Coating is a conductor. It conducts heat away from the coils.Simix A/C Ceramic Coating reduces surface tension. This allows the fan to pull more air through the coils.HOW DOES SIMIX A/C CERAMIC COATING TURN YOUR AIR CONDITIONER INTO A CLEAN AIR GENERATOR?

Mold, bacteria and pollen – and the odors they create – live and grow on surfaces that have a pH level between 4.8 and 9.2. While most cleaning and coating products are pH neutral, Simix Multi-Surface Cleaner (pH 11.4) and Simix A/C Ceramic Coating (pH 12.3) create a permanent, safe, high pH that prevents the growth of mold, bacteria and viruses.

Simix was proven to improve air quality in tests done with AirAnswers. Simix eliminates airborne contaminants like grass pollen, dog allergens and mold allergens.

In this study, single component   photo-catalysis experiments were performed on a set of three-carbon compounds that contain different functionality (propane, propene, acetone and propanal). The relative time required for degradation of the compounds was directly dependent upon the predicted affinity for the catalyst surface. In multi-component experiments, compounds with lower affinity for the catalyst surface did not degrade until the higher affinity compounds were reduced to insignificant levels.


The presence of toxic vapors from a variety of sources represents a significant burden to indoor air quality. Chemicals such as tetrachloroethylene (used extensively in dry cleaning establishments), formaldehyde (used in the manufacture of carpeting, furniture, andparticleboard), and the vapors from liquid organic solvents (used frequently in the printing industry and in analytical laboratories) are often present at elevated levels in enclosed environments, especially those with limited ventilation.

Gas-phase photocatalytic oxidation (orphotocatalysis) over UV-illuminated semiconductor constitutes a very promising technique for the destruction of organic and inorganic contaminants  especially in situationswhere consumable materials are undesirable.

Unlike traditional catalytic processes that occur at high temperatures ,photocatalysis occurs readily even at near-ambient temperatures. Unlike filtration, which merely transfers contaminants to a different phase (e.g. via adsorption onto activated carbon) and requires the replacement and disposal of depleted treatment units, photocatalytic treatment systems are “self-generating”. Photocatalytic processes chemically oxidize (or convert) organic compounds into carbon dioxide and water—
