application

Qivation has mastered the application of PIAJ Nanophotocatalyst Application Technology. We successfully use this technology with different materials, shapes, and functions. Qivation has developed a specific formula for each of our products. Our methods significantly enhance the functionality and efficiency of Nanophotocatalyst.

piaj

We use “Nano-Photocatalytic Technology” from Japan, the recognized technology by PIAJ (Photocatalysis Industry Association of Japan). The PIAJ Association is the most authoritative standard for purification materials in Japan. The PIAJ testing standard is in accordance with the JIS standard (Japanese Industrial Standard), which is the highest and recognized standard in Japan. The issuance of a PIAJ certificate must meet the performance standards, which are measured and examined through standardized and stringent testing procedures. The Nano Photocatalytic Technology we adopt can initiate a 24/7 round-the-clock disinfection cycle, decomposing airborne viruses, odor, bacteria, and other pollutants with visible light. The pollutants will be absorbed when there is no light, once the light is on, the pollutants shall then to decomposed. Once activated, it will operate around the clock.

WiZ Smart lighting software solution by Signify (formerly Philips Lighting) offers a range of up to 64,000 adjustable shades of white and lightness and up to 16 million colors with preset well-being and dynamic light mode.


How Does
Photocatalysis Work

  1. Photocatalysis uses light as a catalyst to initiate a chemical reaction after absorbing light energy. The process releases electron (-) from surfaces.
  2. The process allows the Oxygen (O2) and moisture (H2O) in the air to generate O2- (Superoxide anion) and generates •OH (hydroxyl radical), respectively.
  3. The O2- (Superoxide anion) and •OH (hydroxyl radical) generated will then create a redox effect in which the tiny organic substances (e.g., bacteria, odour smell, virus, dust) are then converted into carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).
  4. The conversion decomposes organic compounds and releases them into the air

Absorb, decompose, convert 24/7 non-stop

 

The technology can minimize the Organic substances inclusive pollutants (e.g bacteria, odour smell, virus, dust) laying or near Qivation TiO2 Product thru a normal air convention then the pollutants absorbed at the surface of Qivation TiO2 Product even with no light, the pollutants shall then decompose by touching on the surface of Qivation TiO2 Product by visible light or sunlight then convert into clean air purifying the surrounding air, objects and environment. Absorb, decompose, convert 24/7 working non-stop and repeatedly. 


The Breakthrough on
Nanophotocatalysis

The use of TiO2, which we apply is the nano photocatalyst technology. This technology revolutionizes the traditional application of photocatalysts as it no longer requires binders, alcohol, or other harmful materials.
