Appreciation of titanium products and the opening up of a new market with the manufacture of a product with an added high value
A multidisciplinar Research Group from the Technical University of Madrid has developed a new material with excellent mechanical properties and whose coating has a great aesthetical attractive. Additionally, this material could be used as an air (and surrounding water) decontaminant that eliminates principally organic substances and NOx, by adsorption and photocatalytic oxidation. In this way, it contributes to the cleaning of the air of our cities.
Introduction of a new constructive and aesthetic element that contributes to the decontamination of gases and surrounding waters.
The material, which is synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of a titanium sheet, keeps its original mechanical properties and therefore, its common use, without the new coating, still remains suitable for architecture and for façade claddings.
Additionally, as an aesthetic element, the variety and diversity of colours offered, adds high value to the material.
As decontaminant removes mainly organic substances and NOx by adsorption and photocatalytic oxidation.
“Material with an added high aesthetical value owing to the panoply of colors that offers, without affecting its mechanical properties”
“The material offers the appreciation of titanium products and the opening up of a new market with the manufacture of a product with a added high value”
