"Titanium is the 9th-most common element on earth and titanium oxide is used as a white pigment in paint and cosmetics. As a pigment a lower grade titanium dioxide is used. For photocatalyst applications like air-purifying, anti-bacterial use and self-cleaning purposes a very high-grade photo reactive titanium dioxide is used. Our products using Titanium dioxyde are hydrophilic, which translates as "water loving". When the surface of photocatalytic film is exposed to light, the contact angle of the photocatalyst surface with water is reduced gradually. After enough exposure to light, the surface reaches a super-hydrophilic state. In other words, it does not repel water at all, so water cannot exist in the shape of a drop, but spreads flatly on the surface of the substrate. The water takes the form of a highly uniform thin film, which behaves optically like a clear sheet of glass. The hydrophilic nature of titanium dioxide, coupled with gravity, will sweep away dust particles after a wash-down or rainfall, thus making the product self-cleaning. [...] Nano Clean Spray is a multi purpose, broad spectrum, ready to use, highly effective cleaner and disinfectant for use on the surfaces of inanimate objects. Currently it is the only EPA-registered Tox Category IV disinfectant product in the US. This means there are no harmful dermal (skin), ocular (eyes), inhalation (breathing), or ingestion (swallowing) effects."
