Leitha CleanCoat™ is a patented, light-activated, nanocoating which generates free radicals when exposed to light, a so-called “photocatalyst”. Free radicals decompose harmful pathogens while purifying and deodorizing indoor environments. The invisible coating is not consumed in the light-activated process and is therefore persistent and continually active while exposed to light. Leitha CleanCoat™ works when exposed to light and helps in achieving a lower microbial load in-between cleaning cycles as such being an ideal adjuvant to daily cleaning and hygiene delivery as the coating reduces the need for manually wiping surfaces with traditional disinfecting substances.
Leitha CleanCoat™ is based on titanium dioxide, a substance which occurs in many places, both in regular consumer products and in nature. In Leitha CleanCoatTM the titanium dioxide comes in a special nano-form, which, when exposed to light, catalyze a process that generates free radicals.
Free radicals decompose certain microorganisms as viruses, bacteria, and mold, it also decomposes harmful gases called “volatile organic compounds”, VOCs for short. The decomposing happens by a process called “oxidization”.
Leitha CleanCoatTM can be applied on almost any surface, with only few exceptions, giving the coated surface self-disinfecting properties by above-described process for longer periods of time. Leitha CleanCoatTM is applied only by trained professionals, using a specially designed photostatic sprayer.
Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
