HOW IT WORKS
The system is composed of LED lighting systems (that creating directional light allows to obtain the increased emission of luxs on the threated surface) with the application of photocatalytic nanomaterials that remain always active (with light turned on) and can eliminate more than 90% of viruses, bacteria and other organic substances present in the environment.
The simple lighting of specific LED lamps, suitably designed to work at precise wavelengths in the visible spectrum, activates the PHOTOCATALYSIS process that involves the generation of ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species), elements able to transform harmful organic substances into harmless inorganic molecules (H2O and CO2). The mixture of different photocatalytic materials, combined with an innovative compound based on organic carbon made to improve adhesion on the surface of the lamp, allows PAL sanitizing lighting system to be unique, innovative and highly performing.
The basic nanomaterial is patented while the solution that is applied to the lamp surface is composed specifically for each type of lamp since they must comply with precise requirements in consideration of the material and the width of the surface. Furthermore, it considers the specific emission spectrum of LED light.
The use of LED lamps coupled to the photocatalyst PAL patented blend allows to activate photocatalysis with the best efficacy, relying on the emission of light in the visible spectrum and thus overcoming the limit of illumination with UV rays required with a photocatalyst such as titanium dioxide.
The lamps then assume biocides characteristics and, following regulations and laws regulating the areas of application, they can be considered as a warranty for an ultimate sanitization.
Difference between the PAL system and a conventional photocatalyst:
Difference between the PAL system and a common deodorant:
Eliminates odors by encapsulating the odor causing substance
Common deodorizers eliminate odors by encapsulating the odor-causing substances without decomposing the substances or bacteria. Over time, the deodorizing effect is lost, so the deodorizer must be sprayed again each time odors emerge. Similarly, the germ elimination effect does not continue either.
Decompose substances under artificial illumination
Pal system, by virtue of its photocatalyst action, continues to decompose and remove odor-causing substances, microorganisms, and gases that cause indoor air pollutants at the molecular level. The effects continue as the led-light is turned on.
