Renova

Smog-eating flooring

Renova flooring is an active and certified solution for polluction reduction.

How does it work

The specific mixture, containing titanium dioxide (TiO2) with photocatalytic action, breaks up fine particles, nitrogen, carbon and sulfur oxide (generated in urban environments by car exhausts and heating systems) in harmless substances for both human being and environment.

RENOVA advantages

  • SMOG-EATER
    thanks to the titanium dioxide it accelerates the pollutants oxidation reaction
  • DEODORANT ACTION
    the decomposition of substances containing
    sulfur and nitrogen prevents the formation of molds and bad smells
  • ANTIMICROBIAL ACTION
    It has an effective action against bacteria and fungus

Laboratory test

The photocatalytic action of Renova was tested with CNR approved equipment. The results of the tests showed more than 80% reduction of the polluting agent NOx (nitrogen oxides).

Outdoor test

The effectiveness of photocatalytic binders in the breakdown of nitrogen oxides was also measured outdoor by monitoring several applications if RENOVA flloorings  for more than 1000 hours.
The results, although slightly different from those found in the laboratory due to the influence of atmospheric, environmental and geographical conditions, are notable especially considering the solar irradiation conditions and the number of winter light hours in which the surveys were carried out.
The reduction of pollutants was very good or excellent for all the main substances and for molds and bacteria.

Test performed outdoor on photocatalitic flooring by ARPA and CNR
