Bio-Care technology, for self-cleaning external cladding

 
Pollution in cities is not only a risk to our health but it also has a damaging effect on buildings, external cladding, monuments and infrastructures. The main cause of damage to buildings is the build up of organic matter which deposits on the surface.
 
Bio-Care is a Lapitec® line designed and developed to breakdown and wash away the organic atmospheric particles which deposit on the external cladding as well as having a bactericidal effect. 
To achieve this result this specific Bio-Care line is produced by incorporating a special form of Titanium dioxide (TiO2) during the Lapitec® production.
Titanium dioxide is a catalyst which degrades organic matter through oxidation thanks to the reaction to natural sunlight or artificial lighting (photocatalysis).
Titanium dioxide also gives Lapitec® super hydrophilic properties promoting a washing effect to remove the polluting particles from the surface. This important feature allows us to define the surfaces of the Lapitec® Bio-Care line as "self-cleaning". 
Scientific research has also demonstrated how the powerful oxidation properties of Titanium dioxide destroys bacteria (as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus) and mould, fungus and micro organisms reducing the unpleasant odours produced.
The Bio-Care line is the perfect choice for locations where you have to guarantee a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene with anti-polluting and self-cleaning properties.
