Nano Tio2 Application At FAMA

20120305-143549.jpg

At the end of february, 2012, we applied another governmental organization of Malaysia, FAMA. FAMA is an organization that works closely together with MARDI. This organization markets and distributes majority of Malaysia’s agricultural goods locally and export.

We was given a chance to proof our product’s capabilities in one of their premise at Port Dickson. This is a commercial project where we apply a few of the primise’s function rooms, meeting rooms and toilets to test on our nano tio2’s ability to break organic compounds as well as VOCs.

HERE ARE SOME PICTURES DURING THE APPLICATION

We have also performed the before and after indoor air quality sampling and surface swap tests to show proof of what we have claimed.

Our target for this organization is not only on its premises, but we are aiming at the organization’s logistics of transporting the agricultural goods within Malaysia and to overseas. Our plan is to help FAMA to save on their product’s rejection rate. As long mentioned, we worked with MARDI on prolonging the shelve lives of fruits and vegetables by taking care of the ethylene gasses that is emitted from the fruits and vegetables that makes it ripe faster.
Our aim is to apply our nano tio2 into all the transportation and containers that is carrying these Argo goods, allowing these goods to last longer to its destination and we strive to reduce the rejection rate to zero when they reaches the other side which in turn will be of great gain to FAMA in the long run.

Arc Flash’s Nano tio2 application at ELECTROLUX’s HQ at Jaya33

20111206-145335.jpg

On 5th December 2011, we were asked to apply our nano tio2 at the Electrolux Malaysia’s HQ at Jaya33, Petaling Jaya. The reason for us being called upon was that the patrons there were sick one by one. We suspected that there is a very strong pollutant infection in the 11,000 square feet premise. That is why the virus can travel around the patrons working in this office.

We treated the whole office including its general office area, manager’s offices, conference rooms and even the show room where customers will come and take a look at their products.

Indoor Air Quality Test and Surface Swap Test Before the Application

20111206-151106.jpg

For this project, we were required to do a lab test before and after our nano tio2 application to compare the counts of microbes in the air and also on the surfaces.
Usually the counts will drop dramatically to at least 70% a week after the application and will further reduced to almost zero one or two months after that. (the rough amount of reduction will be published when we get the report from the lab)

Have we done hotels and resorts before In malaysia?

Here we are saying our nano tio2 is applicable to here and there…. Even hotels… But have we done hotels and resorts before? Well, yes…. Of course…

Here is a resort built on a man made pond which is made of wood. Now, we all know that when there’s wood and water in combination, there can only be the one and only problem… Mold/ fungus growth…

Well there has been complains of musky and mold smell which are very unpleasant… Prolonged staying in the environment will result a lot of respiratory problems.
Therefore, we were being called to apply our nano tio2 in all 12 chalets in this resort, including the karaoke room.

20111116-111956.jpg

Now, where did we applied our nano tio2 in these resort and hotel? Our nano tio2 was being applied to all the surfaces of:
1. Ceilings
2. Walls
3. Carpeted floors
4. Furnitures
5. Lightings
6. Jacuzzi
7. Toilet bowl

We even applied their TV.

What do they get after the application?

1. Long term cost savings on maintenance in the sense of:
A) cleaning chemicals
B) cleaning number of cleaning on their schedule
C) fragrances materials to cover the bad smell. Not forgetting most of these materials contains VOCs that are harmful

2. Bacteria free environment

3. Mold free environment

4. VOCs free environment

5. Communicable deceases are in control

6. All rooms can be converted to smoking room and non smoking room because of the self deodorizing effect.

Most importantly, CUSTOMERS SATISFACTIONS which is the core of every service industry’s policies.

Note: these are projects done before 2009 when our electrostatic spraying system was not available at that time.

REHDA PROJECT (Malaysia)

20111111-114854.jpg

It has been a long wait for us to see the project to come to this stage. Finally, it’s our turn to kick start our part. This is going to be a 3 phases project.
We will start off with all the glass panels, followed by the rest of the whole external surfaces when the paint job is done and then finally, it’s our final touch after all the interior jobs are being completed.
This project is expected to be hand over by 31st December 2011. Hopefully all will go well..

20111111-113740.jpg

20111111-113802.jpg

all these glasses has to be applied 1 by 1, which takes a lot of time… But with our electrostatic sprayer, no problem…..

20111111-113824.jpg

next round, will be the rest of the exterior building structures… Now, that’s gonna be the toughest part because the nature of the landscape of this building is that, it’s unaccessible by cranes… It’s all on the scarf holdings..

20111111-113913.jpg

Upon Completion of Our Nano Tio2 Application, What will this Building gets?


1. Close to Zero VOCs level

2. Close to Zero Microbial like bacteria, molds/fungus, allergens and even virus level

3. Does not need to install air purifiers

4. Very minimal maintenance for cleaning the external structures because of the nano tio2’s self cleaning effect

5. Effects lasting up to 3 to 5 years, with a 2 years warranty

6. Cost savings in the long run for many aspects

Can this be proven? The building will go through a commissioning process by the green building commissioners before it can be certified. Apart from the professional equipments used by the commissioners to monitor the results, there are also 3rd party labs that can perform indoor air quality sampling tests, swap tests and also VOCs tests.

Arc Flash’s Nano Tio2 Application in Action (Malaysia)

You have seen what Arc Flash’s nano tio2 can do. Have you any idea how its being applied? Our nano tio2 is being applied using the direct spray on system. The tool that we use is not just an ordinary spray paint gun you can get in the market, but we are using the ELECTROSTATIC SPRAYER SYSTEM.

Here is an example of a typical application for Arc Flash Corporation’s Nano Tio2
Arc Flash’s Electrostatic Application

Nano Coating Using Electrostatic Technology – How it works

Nano coatings are composed of extremely tiny droplets. Electrostatic application of a nano coating employs the law of physics describing the electrostatic interaction between electrically charged objects. This law is behind why metal filings are drawn to a magnet, lint is attracted to your clothes or dust clings to the screen of your television. These are all examples of Coulomb’s law in action – opposite electrical charges attract and “like” charges repel. (These principles of physics were first published in 1783 by French physicist Charles Augustin de Coulomb.)
In numerous commercial, industrial and agricultural spraying operations, electrostatic forces of attraction significantly improve the deposition (coating) of charged droplets onto target surfaces. Such operations include liquid and powder paint coatings, electrostatic precipitation of air pollutants from stacks, electrostatic spraying of agricultural pesticides onto field crops and orchards, xerographic copying, ink-jet printing, textile flocking, and more recently, disinfection, sanitization and decontamination applications.

Droplet Control & Droplet Size

Common to all these electrostatics based operations are droplet control and droplet size. Droplet control consists of first, imparting an appreciable net electrical charge onto the individual droplets (e.g., 5-15 mC/kg charge – to mass), and secondly, propelling the charged droplets to the target surface.
Droplet size is the result of shattering, or atomizing, the jet of spray coating into much smaller droplets. Droplet sizes are measured in microns. The most common term used to describe droplet size is Volume Median Diameter (VMD). VMD refers to the midpoint droplet size (mean), where half of the volume of spray is in droplets smaller, and half of the volume is in droplets larger than the mean. A VMD of 50, for example, indicates that half of the volume is in droplet sizes smaller than 50 microns, and half the volume is in droplet sizes larger than 50 microns.
A micron is 1/1000 millimeter, or about 1/25,000 of an inch. In comparison, a drop of water is about 250 to 300 microns in size, a human hair is about 100 microns in diameter. Droplets 50 microns and less are generally considered to be aerosol droplets. The range and size of droplets in any given spray has tremendous influence on coverage, volume of spray used, retention, and runoff. When droplets greater than 150 microns strike target surfaces, they become flattened, but their kinetic energy is such that they retract and bounce away. Small droplets are better retained as they lack the kinetic energy to overcome surface energy and viscous changes that occur on impact and do not bounce away.

Optimum Droplet Size

The optimum size is generally considered to be between 40 and 100 microns. Droplets in this range cover more surface area, require lower volumes, are less susceptible to bounce back and runoff than those larger than 100 microns. The surface area of a liquid is greatly increased when broken into small droplets. The volume needed to cover target surface decreases proportionally with droplet size. Even small changes in droplet diameter make big differences in droplet weight. An increase in droplet diameter from 150 microns to about 190 microns doubles the droplet weight. An increase in droplet diameter from 150 microns to about 240 microns increases the weight 4 times. Doubling the diameter to 300 microns increases its weight, and also its volume, by 8 times.

Charged vs Uncharged Droplets
When droplets are uncharged, neither the droplets nor the target surface has any influence on the other. Sprayed droplets are principally influenced by forces generated by the spraying device (pressure, air flow) and by external forces of gravity and air drag. Uncharged droplets are more susceptible to air currents in the spraying area while charged droplets are less influenced by air currents.
An electrostatic sprayer induces an electrical charge onto droplets creating an attractive force between charged droplets and targets. This electrostatic force overrides gravity and inertia to pull droplets out of their paths – up, down or sideways – to the closest surface.
To compare influence, the electrostatic force on charged droplets is up to 75 times greater than the force of gravity. Electrostatically charged droplets are also influenced by the sprayer’s mechanical forces, however, once they reach the vicinity of the target, electrostatic forces take over to a very large degree.
In water based coatings, the water carries the electrical charge. Charged sprays, unlike uncharged sprays, resist coalescing into larger droplets both in transit and deposition. As each charged droplet is deposited on a surface, electrical charges balance out at that site, making it no longer attractive to other charged droplets. The droplets following are pulled instead to the rest of the surfaces which remain attractive.

Atomization & Induction Charging
A typical droplet of spray from a conventional air-blast applicator is around 250 microns in size. A typical droplet of spray from an electrostatic sprayer is around 40 microns. In the nozzle of an electrostatic sprayer the coating liquid passes in very close proximity (but does not contact) a positively charged electrode, inducing a negative charge (excess electrons) in the grounded liquid stream. The stream of coating liquid, with its excess electrons, is combined in a shearing action with a near sonic velocity jet of air, shattering (atomizing) the coating liquid into droplets 30 to 40 microns in size.

Shattering the liquid stream breaks the droplets free from the grounded liquid stream and traps the excess of electrons. As the electrically charged droplets exit the nozzle, they create a charged field plume that is strongly attracted to the targeted object. The charge on the atomized droplets remains until discharged on a grounded object or the water content of the droplet evaporates.
Induction charging is based on the principle that a field charge, created within the plume, is presented to a grounded target. It is this field charge the plume creates that really makes an electrostatic sprayer so effective. The charge is small, but the force attracting the coating plume to the target is substantial, up to 75 times the force of gravity.

As the target sits with a neutral potential the proximity of the field charge induces a strong attraction. The droplets actually reverse direction and coat the underside, backside and crevasses of the target, creating an “electrostatic wraparound.” In comparison, a 250 micron droplet simply runs off a target and is largely wasted.

Additionally there is the second half of Coulomb’s Law, that “like” charges repel. Since all of the coating droplets leaving the nozzle have the same charge, they cannot coalesce into large droplets, which again fall off the target. At the same time, the swirling droplets are not attracted to areas already coated and continue to seek out uncovered surface areas until there is uniform coverage (disposition) across the entire target. This results in a consistent, uniform coating, no drips, no runs and no uncoated areas.

What Matters Most
Microscopic organisms are usually hidden in deep cracks and crevasses inside or on the undersides of surface areas, and continue to survive if coverage is spotty. The extraordinary bonding of the coating to the target and the complete, uniform coverage achieved are distinct advantages of Microbecide® electrostatic sprayers. Experience is showing it is not just what is applied but how a coating is applied that matters most.

Here is a video showing the mechanism of our electrostatic spraying technology

Notice the Beauty of the spray of the wrapping effect compared to a single dimensional spray by a normal spray paint gun

A NEW IAQ SPECIALIST IS IN TOWN (Malaysia)..

There has been researches mentioned that nowadays, even the air inside our buildings is worse that the air outside. This is mainly due to the finishes that we have using on our walls and ceilings (eg, paints and glues used on wall papers), floors (eg, materials used on our carpets), open spaces (eg, use of fragrances), washing materials (fragrances detergents) and etc. All the mentioned materials emits VOCs. Most of these VOCs contains harmful gasses that is dangerous to human Heath over a long time.
These danger can’t be seen and felt. The only way we can detect is either by smelling or using VOC testers.

Besides VOCs, even other micro-organic matters like bacteria, virus, molds/fungus and other allergens that we can’t see will harm our health over time. How can we know whether or not our home of offices or even our cars are filled with all these harmful microbes? They cannot be seen and felt as well. Again, there are numerous swap test equipments and expertise our there who is able to detect them.

So, what do we do after detection of such harmful matters that we have been living with? We take actions by trying to eliminate them. There are a lot of products that have the ability to minimize such contaminants, but does anyone really know what to use? Do they depend on a physical product like an air purifier? After determining that, do they go for the brands and then comparing prices? When they purchase these products to counter the IAQ problems, do they even check the air quality and cleanness of their surfaces once a while to make sure what they have purchased is useful? If they don’t, what makes them trust the products they are using? What different does that make to using nanoyo?

Nanoyo is a form of liquid which contains nano sized tio2. This liquid is applied onto all surfaces in the interiors of a building. This includes all ceilings, walls, floors and even all the furnitures and fittings within a building. When all these mentioned surfaces are applied with nanoyo, when there is like at presence, the treated surfaces will begin to have an ability to decompose anything that is organic upon contact. Therefore, it is able to oxidize VOCs, molds, odor, bacteria and viruses through a process call photocatalyst reaction.
The purpose of covering all the surfaces in the environment is to make use of every treated surfaces to work against all these harmful microbes. Nano tio2, when applied, can last a long time. It’s lifespan can be as long as 2 to 3 years without any maintenance like plugging it into your power supplies or even changing filters like air purifiers. The invisible coat, when applied onto surfaces, will never change the finishing of the surfaces.

So now, we have another option to consider when we are looking for something to solve our IAQ problem. Nanoyo has been in Malaysia for more than 7 years, applied to many premises such as hospitals, hotels, offices, residentials, karaokes, f&b outlets and etc, helping to solved different problems faced by the patrons here.

Arc Flash Corporation’s SIGNATURE Project – The 1st PLATINUM GREEN BUILDING In Malaysia

20110601-125623.jpg

31st May 2011 marks a very important date for Arc Flash Corporation (M) Sdn. Bhd, because on this day, Malaysia’s first Platinum Green Building was being launched by our DPM and was published today on the newspapers nationwide on 1st June 2011.
Arc Flash Corporation is proud to be involved in this project which houses Suruhanjaya Tenaga, Malaysian’s Energy Commision located in Precint 2, Putrajaya. The Diamond Building is LEED Platinum Building, the first Malaysian Green Building Index Platinum building and the first certified GBI building or Green Energy Office.

Arc Flash Corporation (M) Sdn Bhd was involved in the project at the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). We applied our nano titanium dioxide (tio2) in the whole building to help to maintain the best indoor air quality by continuously reducing the VOCs and Formeldehyde level to the lowest at all times.

20110601-010938.jpg

20110601-010949.jpg

20110601-010953.jpg

Our nano tio2 was applied to the whole internal structures of the building, including all the ceilings, walls, floors and also all the fittings and fixtures as well as all the furnitures located in this building.

Besides LOW VOCs and Formaldehyde, upon application of our nano tio2, thus building is also Free from:
1) Molds/Fungus
2) Bacteria and Airborne contaminants
3) Odor

Apart from these benefits, using nano tio2 application on green buildings is cost and time saving too. Experts pointed out in our green building seminar which was held last week, that there are 2 requirements in the green building in improving the indoor air quality. Air Flushing is one method and Air Quality Testing is another.

20110601-015912.jpg

Air Flushing could take a long time and it’s cost consuming because you’ll need very expensive equipments for flush out the air of a whole building. Imagine that a building is due in 3 months and the air flushing has to be done pre-occupied. It’ll easily take up to 20 to 30 days to thoroughly flush out the air of a building of let’s say 7 stories. Therefore if it takes another month to complete the building just for flushing the air, it will be a great lost to the building itself as well as the contractors.
On the other hand, air quality testing can be done during occupancies, but if at the end of a few months time, the indoor air quality is still above the accepted levels in VOCs and Formaldehyde, air flushing is needed to be done. Hence, the extra costs again.
However, during our seminar, experts also pointed out that by using the nano tio2 application, it is the easiest way to maintain the indoor air quality way much below the acceptable levels. This was proven in the air quality monitoring of our Diamond Building over a period of 3 months.

HERE IS THE UNOFFICIAL INDOOR AIR QUALITY RESULTS FOR OUR PROJECT

AIR QUALITY BEFORE APPLICATION
