Home / Air Purifier & Surface Sanitizer / Surface Sanitizer – Photocatalytic Coatings
See how our air purification technology can help protect families, employees,
customers and our community from COVID-19.
Our photocatalytic coating uses the power of light to breaks down viruses, bacteria, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors, and a number of airborne pollutants. In addition to its ISO-tested and proven air-cleaning capabilities, these coatings have strong antimicrobial properties. Test results demonstrate that our photocatalytic coating reduces bacterial growth on surfaces by more than 99.96%. These coatings are powered by advanced TiO2 particles. These particles not only have a “smog-eating” property but also create a hydrophilic, self-cleaning surface, reducing the need for maintenance and scheduled cleaning. It combines photocatalytic TiO2 and advances in nanotechnology to create the most advanced light-activated functional surface coatings on the market. Our photocatalytic coatings can be applied to many surfaces including glass, metal, plastic, wood, vinyl, fabric, painted surfaces, and porous surfaces.
How It Works
Our photocatalytic coating breaks down viruses, bacteria, airborne pollutants, odors, VOCs, and other environmental toxins using the latest advancements in nanotechnology. These photocatalytic air purification and surface sanitation coatings are powered by nanotechnology that features a “smog-eating” property to create the most advanced light-activated functional surface coatings on the market. Use our photocatalytic coating throughout your home, office, school, or healthcare facility.
Our Multipurpose Photocatalytic coating is specifically designed for outdoor use and for use in public spaces to actively clean the air, surfaces, and surrounding environment while reducing the need for maintenance and cleaning. The Multipurpose coating is ideal for outdoor environments, where indoor air purification technology is not feasible and ineffective.
Our photocatalytic coating is non-toxic, solvent-free, and ISO certified. Our photocatalytic coating not only purifies the air, but it also sanitizes surfaces, providing a cleaner, healthier living, and working environment, In addition to its air purification and surface sanitation properties, it also prevents stains from mold and mildew growth, eliminates odors, protects against UV light damage, and reduces discoloration and buildup of grime on surfaces. Our photocatalytic coatings are powered by titanium dioxide, which is a harmless compound used in many common household products such as toothpaste and organic sunscreens. It is safe for both humans and animals and is ideal for use in homes, offices, schools, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, airports, and more to provide cleaner air and more sanitary surfaces.
“The quality of indoor air inside offices, schools, and other workplaces is important not only for workers’ comfort but also for their health. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs.”

LumaClean™ Glass: Glass surfaces such as windows, solar panels, automotive glass, architectural glass
LumaClean™ Indoor: Indoor surfaces exposed to mostly indoor light
LumaClean™ Multipurpose: Surfaces exposed to large amounts of UV light, outdoor applications
LumaClean™ Primer: Organic surfaces that USA Nanocoat LumaClean will be applied to, acting as an inorganic barrier. Plastic or other hard hydrophobic surfaces to increase adhesion.
Ensure a clean, dry surface before application. For glass and other hard surfaces a surface degreaser, such as our Glass Cleaner, can be used. If the glass is heavily soiled, a glass scraper may be necessary. If the surface is organic in nature and will be exposed to large amounts of UV exposure, USA Nanocoat LumaClean Primer should be applied prior to the final USA Nanocoat LumaClean product.
LumaClean™ Primer is used under two conditions, the first being on an organic surface to act as an inorganic barrier between the active LumaClean coating (Multipurpose or Indoor) and the substrate the coating is being applied to, such as an organic paint. The LumaClean Primer can also be used to increase adhesion and act as a binding agent between the surface and the coating.
3 to 12 hours are required for the film to fully dry. The dry time can be accelerated with heat so long as the temperature does not exceed 600C. Once the coating has fully dried, the coating will not dissolve in water.
The coating will fully cure in about 2 months. At this point, the coating will have achieved maximum hardness (2H-5H depending on the coating/substrate).
If there is an area of the coating that needs to be reworked, the coating should be removed immediately. Coating can be removed by wiping with water and a cloth.
All tools can be rinsed with water to remove any remaining coating solution.

TiO2 is titanium dioxide. It is one of the oldest known and well-studied chemical compounds. It is a naturally occurring compound that is widely used range of applications including paints, sunscreen, toothpaste, diary and food product
Ultraviolet (UV) is invisible, high-energy light making up 6.6% of the incident solar energy that hits the planet from the Sun.
A nanoparticle is any particle whose diameter is between 1-100 nanometers (nm) in size. A nanometer is 1,000,000,000 or 1 billion times smaller than a meter. These small particles have incredibly high surface areas and interesting chemical and optical properties. The high surface area increases the particle’s effectiveness in performing chemical reactions.
