CERACLAD has exclusive Photocatalytic Coating for superior performance

CERACLAD Triple Coating Technology

1. COLOR LAYER
Factory finished, available in proprietary colors

2. CERAMIC COATING LAYER
Excellent UV blocking properties, 20-year Fade Limited Warranty

3. PHOTOCATALYTIC COATING LAYER
Self-cleaning, Air purifying, Anti-virus and Anti-bacterial

The main skeleton of the CERACLAD panel is 100% inorganic so bonding is stronger than the ultraviolet energy and there is almost no deterioration.

Ceramic Coating

CERACLAD’s inorganic ceramic coating has excellent UV blocking properties to protect the color layer from ultraviolet rays and minimize fading of the outer wall. Maintenance costs are reduced by virtually eliminating the need for repainting. This technology is exclusive to CERACLAD.

 

There was almost no color change on the CERACLAD panels. CERACLAD ceramic coated panels are available in proprietary colors and come with a 20-year color guarantee.

The Photocatalytic Coating is Naturally Self-Cleaning - Sunshine Decomposes Dirt, Rain Washes it Away

Self-Cleaning 365 days a year

CERACLAD’s photocatalytic coating is energized by the presence of light and transforms the coated surface to create a ‘self-cleaning’ functionality. Dirt is decomposed by the sun (UV Rays), and weakening adhesion to the surface and the super-hydrophilic property helps rainwater to wash it away.

Decomposition power + Super hydrophilic property

When exposed to sunlight, the Titanium Oxide layer breaks down dirt and reduces adherence.

The super-hydrophilic property helps rainwater penetrate under dirt, displaces it, and then washes it away.

The Photocatalytic Ceramic Coating provides long-lasting quality and beauty. 

Air Purifying

The photocatalytic coating decomposes car exhaust and other pollutants in the air (NOx and SOx) and turns them into NO3 harmless polyatomic ions leaving the air cleaner.

Plants purify pollutants such as NOx (nitrogen oxides) contained in car exhaust. The poplar tree is one of the plants that absorbs the most NOx.

The air purification capability of photocatalytic coating is appx. 0.44g/day/sq.ft. (0.04g/day/m2), which is 68 poplar trees per 10,000 sq.ft.

air purifying capability

The air purifying properties of the photocatalytic coating for a 10,000 sq.ft. building is equal to planting 68 poplar trees. 10 CERACLAD panels is equal to planting 1 poplar tree. 

Anti-Virus + Anti-Bacteria

The photocatalytic coating will inactivate viruses and bacteria on the outer wall surface.

When the photocatalytic coating is exposed to sunlight (UV rays), the free radical ions generated from the photocatalyst decompose viruses and bacteria on the surface.

Anti-Bacteria Test

Black mold (Cladosporium cladosporioides NBRC63480) was applied on the surface of the photocatalytic coated panels. After one week no mold had grown on the photocatalytic coated surface.

*Based on our internal study

*It does not prove that mold, moss, and algae do not grow on the exterior wall in an actual building.
