TitanSolidTM should never be applied by untrained persons or without the use of professional equipment and without taking appropriate safety measures. The only guarantee that the coating will be safely and effectively applied is for it to be applied by professionally-trained LumiChem employees.
- TitanSolidTM is applied to surfaces using a special spray technology that ensures even distribution of the compound.
- The coating is invisible to the naked eye.
- The compound is always applied by our technicians using precision equipment, while taking environmental conditions, industrial requirements, and workplace safety regulations into account.
- The compound is applied in several layers.
- Coating an area of 1,000m2 (approximately 10,764 square feet) takes 5-8 hours (not including preparation). Drying time is about 15-30 minutes between coats and after completion.
- Spaces that have been coated can be safely entered and touched two hours after completion of the treatment.
- TitanSolidTM is applied by trained professionals and is not available for do-it-yourselfers.
- Professional disinfection of all surfaces prior to the application of TitanSolidTM.
- Swab samples taken by LumiChem professionals for testing under a luminometer in order to ascertain the effectiveness of the coating. Samples are taken prior to the application of TitanSolidTM and at an agreed-upon later date for comparison purposes.
- Reporting to the client in writing, along with photographic documentation, test results and quality controls. We strongly encourage our clients to participate in viewing the luminometer results.
- We highly recommend the addition of LumiBoost to increase the effectiveness of the TitanSolidTM coating.
How we verify the effectiveness of the coating
We use ATP (adenosine triphosphate) technology to check the level of microbial activity on surfaces. This is both the fastest and optimal way to check the effectiveness of the coating. The nanolayer of titanium dioxide (TiO2), under exposure to light, catalyzes the reaction, creating hydroxyl radicals. These highly-reactive radicals break down and damage cell membranes. Since the majority of microbes are single-celled organisms, they quickly die after contact with surfaces coated with TitanSolidTM.
ATP is a molecule found in and around living cells and, as such, gives a direct measurement of biological concentration and health. The amount of ATP is determined by measuring the light generated by the reaction of ATP with the naturally occurring bioluminescent enzyme luciferase using a luminometer. The amount of light generated is directly proportional to the number of living organisms in the sample.
