PTFE fiberglass coated with non-toxic and flame-resistant TiO2 (titanium dioxide) produces a photocatalytic membrane that functions like the leaves of a tree, providing shade and comfort while actively neutralizing airborne pollutants and odours.
The unique self-cleaning benefits of TiO2 allow the material to break down dirt and other organic materials through a chemical reaction with the sun’s UV rays, oxygen and water vapour, present in the air.
This reaction, known as oxidation-reduction, converts these materials into harmless gases and natural components without using excess chemicals, solvents or water. The resulting sediments are simply washed away by rain. As a result, the membrane material remains bright and clean, reducing the need for frequent service.
Whilst many fabrics have self-cleaning attributes, TiO2 is the only ACTIVE surface treatment ensuring a clean surface all year round with minimal maintenance.
The fabric is available in three choices each graded according to their degree of translucency.
TiO² coating technology promises an extended beauty, translucency and an “as new” appearance for the life of your fabric structure.
