Nanotechnology – cleaner surroundings
We make titania nanoparticles and convert them into surface treatment products for concrete and wood. A treated surface can clean the surrounding air by breaking down toxic gasses present in polluted areas. In addition, the surface will have a self-cleaning functionality to counteract darkening and greening caused by algae and fungi. Our products are an environmentally friendly alternative to biocide-containing products as they are completely non-toxic.
Joma Surface Treatment has developed products both for implementation into concrete production and for application onto existing surfaces in the aftermarket. Concrete producers can integrate photocatalytic titania into their production process and sell environmentally friendly end-products with added value. Joma produces one of the most active titania nanoparticles seen on the market and we know how to best implement the particle into concrete production lines.
The products Joma Clean® and Joma Protect® are developed for the after-market, and existing concrete like buildings, concrete walls and pavements. The water-based, non-toxic products are easy to apply and will reduce the need for maintenance, while cleaning the surrounding air.
Wood has become increasingly popular as construction material for urban architecture. It is an environmentally friendly and sustainable material. However, wooden surfaces are susceptible to discoloration and organic growth. To increase the competiveness of wood as building material, we have developed Joma Pure® for untreated wood. The surface treatment product has documented anti-fungal effect due to a unique combination of photocatalysis and water-repellence, is easy to apply and can be implemented into production lines.
