Patent Application No. : Life Tiles : 5553/CHE/2012
Life tiles is an amazing technology. In the presence of solar light or artificial UV light, it removes smog & poisonous No and CO gases improving air quality. Just 1,000 sqft of x 2 Life Tiles work like 150 trees. This technology also kills >99.2% bacteria. 3 Miracles in every Life Tile. Believe it !
- Smog is formed when nitrogen oxide mixes in the air with other chemicals in presence of sunlight & heat.
- Nitrogen oxide is also emitted as a byproduct of burning fossil fuels (coal, petroleum, natural gas etc which contains high presence of carbon) in vehicles and electric power plants.
- Smog is a type of air pollution caused by exhaust from cars, trucks, generators and other internal combustion engines and industrial fumes that react in the atmosphere with sunlight to form secondary pollutants that also combine with the primary emissions to form photochemical smog.
- When tile is exposed to light, the photocatalyst on the surface speeds up the oxidation process to reduce pollution.
- When it rains, the small quantity of organic residue is washed off the roof.
- During the tile-making process, our engobe, glaze, top coating base has titanium dioxide (TiO ) to fight smog. 2
- Glaze made from frit containing borates of calcium, magnesium and zinc oxide, which have anti-microbial property.
- The base glaze contains zinc oxide - a powerful anti-microbial agent.
- Magnesium oxide which comes from dolomite which is in the frit makes it anti-microbial.
