Testing of degradation of NOx in air on Calacatta Active 300x150cm

The slab of porcelain tile Calacatta Active 300x150 cm appears to be very active in the photocatalytic degradation of NOx in air.
In reference to the experimental data obtained after 6 hours of testing, the percentage of degradation of NOx is equal to 90.0%.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most common pollutants with whom we are in contact everyday?

Surely nitrogen oxides (NOx), which is the air pollution reference for the World Health Organization (WHO). Furthermore, VOC (volatile organic compounds) includes most of the components of many common products: products for cleaning, products for body care, etc. Do not forget particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5), which is subject of a deep study because it is suspected to cause cardiac dysfunction.
We must not forget, however, that pollution is an issue closely linked to the territory where is produced, and thus it is quite difficult to generalize.

How Titanium dioxide can degradate the indoor and outdoor pollution?

The photocatalyst activates and speeds up the degradation reaction of the pollutants in the air, but the titanium dioxide particles, even if they are directly involved in the oxidation process, don't wear out and for this reason the action of titanium dioxide is unchanged over time.
Thanks to TiO2, oxygen, umidity and solar light, during the photocatalytic reaction the pollutants are degradated in something not dangerous for health.
High temperature fixing (700°C) of the TiO2 on the Active tiles makes sure that the surface of this tiles are resistant to abrasion from foot traffic, and so the photocatalytic activity is unchanged over time.
