Keim Soldalit-ME – Exterior Photocatalytic Mineral Paint
KEIM Soldalit-ME offers sustainable exterior protection for buildings with the environmental benefit that it helps to degrade nitrogen oxide pollutants from the air we breathe.
Photocatalytic mineral paints use light energy to neutralise pollution. Whilst mineral paints already contain only environmentally friendly and sustainable materials, titanium dioxide is also added as a catalyst which enables the photocatalytic reaction. The catalyst is not used up by the reaction and will continue to react for the life of the paint.
The photocatalytic reaction converts Nitrogen Oxides and other harmful pollutants including formaldehyde and acetaldehyde into harmless nitrates. The reaction also helps to breakdown organic material and contaminants, keeping surfaces cleaner. When titanium dioxide is used in conventional paints it can breakdown the organic paint itself, reducing the lifespan of such paints.
What kind of pollutants are degraded?
Pollution by industry and road traffic for example:
• Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)
• Ammonia gas (NH3)
Harmful indoor gases, for example out-gassing from furniture or cigarette consumption:
• VOCs (Benzene, Toluene)
• Formaldehyde, acetaldehyde
Even bacteria and fungal spores can be significantly reduced by photocatalysis.
