ANTI-ODOUR EFFECTIVENESS

ANTI-ODOUR EFFECTIVENESS

Odour is caused by molecules with a particular composition that, when present, are perceived and recognised by their smell. However, odour is a very difficult parameter to measure, as it reflects the property of a certain substance that stimulates the human olfactory system. Smells may be pleasant or unpleasant, strong or barely perceptible, but an odour-free environment is always preferable both in private and public spaces.

Cosa cambia con active 2.0?

Active is able to degrade the main molecules responsible for odours more effectively and powerfully. Active has a more uniform distribution of titanium dioxide on the surface of the ceramic tiles, as well as the silver, which is appropriately added to the micrometric TiO2 and is always used in Active.

WE RECOMMEND IT FOR

A clean and comfortable environment must be odour-free.

There is no such thing as a "clean smell"!!! What we smell are always volatile molecules (VOC) present in the air from furniture, finishing materials, personal care products or household cleaning substances. They are a particularly annoying source of sensory pollution, though little recognised at regulatory level. We should also remember that in some cases smells are caused by highly dangerous bacterial decomposition.

ANTI-ODOUR EFFECTIVENESS

To study the degradation of odoriferous molecules by Active in the laboratory, two model molecules were chosen: methyl mercaptane, a colourless gas with the foul smell of rotten cabbage and alpha-pinene, a molecule used as a fragrance with the characteristic smell of pine, used in many deodorising products for small spaces such as cars.
The results obtained have shown the absolute effectiveness of Active in
eliminating also this type of molecules.

HOW DOES ACTIVE WORK?

Thanks to the photocatalytic properties, the odorant molecules, which encountered the Active surfaces, are degraded and destroyed, eliminating the unpleasant odours.

 

WHAT HAPPENS WITH LED LIGHTS?

Active is able to degrade the main odoriferous molecules in a more effective and powerful way thanks to a more homogeneous distribution of titanium dioxide on the surface of ceramic slabs and the presence of silver that improves the product efficiency and makes it active even with LED lights.
