Here is a report we did for of our customer. De Best Kids applied SmartCoat one year ago and we went back for surface monitoring using our ATP tester to measure the microbe count. It appears that some places are still clean but there are places which are not so clean. This is an alarm of reapplication and therefore the owner of this Kindergarten agreed to reapply SmartCoat nano tio2 at this place again. 

 

What is an ATP Tester? 

ATP are gasses/enzymes that living being produces. Once the living being is dead, the ATP will eventually disappears. The ATP tester is used to test the number of active ATP gasses/enzyme on a surface before/without SmartCoat application compared with the active ATP gasses/enzymes on a SmartCoat nano tio2 photocatalyst treated surfaces.

Superb test done at OYL, manufacturer of YORK airco

Today, on 4th september 2013, we were asked to perform a test for our customer, OYL (manufacturer of YORK Aircon. The R&D team need to see for themselves how good SmartCoat is. This is part of the process of officiating us as the vender for the company.

We apply their cooling coils and they need to know what happens to the coils after the application. So we performed a test for their audit today.

image

Firsly, we take cut a portion of the fins inside the cooling coil system and perform a swap test with our atp tester.

image

The reading shows that there is 616 microbes on the surface of the fin..

image

After taking the reading, we apply the fin with SmartCoat.

image

image

We leave the treated fin exposed to room light for a few minutes and then we take another swap.

image

The reading shows that there is only 5 microbes count.

image

In comparison, we use another fin that is not treated, and we performed swap test on it.

image

The microbe count was 635.

image

Later, we asked the OLY team to try to pollute the SmartCoat treated fin with bank notes. Bank notes are known to be filled with bacteria. And the count was only 185.

image

Again, we exposed the SmartCoat treated fin to the available room light for a short while and there you go… it clearly showed that there was only 9 count microbes on the SmartCoat treated fin..

A very successful test indeed.

Are We Afraid of COMPETITIONS??

We have been in the market for the 8th years now.. We have met a lot of potential partners asking us the same question again and again and again…. DO WE HAVE COMPETITORS in the MARKET? ARE YOU AFRAID OF THEM?
Well, to be frank, we were afraid during our first 2 years in business and we even tried to avoid such question by either keeping quiet or just gently swing the question away….
But now… We will tell you, the more competitors come into the market the better. This is the only way people who have passions in this industry, stirs up the market through education. As you can see, our nano tio2 business is a very technical thing that no laymen can understand it easily. They need to be educated by more players in the market in many different ways.
We, Arc Flash Corporation (M) Sdn Bhd alone cant do the job of educating the public and there’s no government support to promote such a wonderful technology. So the best way is to welcome competitors, but quality ones. There are many impostors of such technologies in the market. Now, these are the people that we are afraid of.

Anyway, back to competitions. We are not afraid of competitors anymore. Why? you may ask….
I think with 8 years of experiences of doing this business in the market, we Arc Flash Corporation does contribute to some trusts in the market that we are giving our customers our best.

Over the years, we have developed so many industries and our customers don’t come to us because we sweet talked them. Its because we really provide them with high end solutions to solve their problems be it in the self cleaning sector or the antimicrobial sector or even the indoor air quality sector.

Our Customers

20111201-124829.jpg

With customers such as the above, topping up with THE REAL ESTATE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION (MALAYSIA), our first Platinum Status Green Building (THE DIAMOND BUILDING), Works MInistry’s Building (JKR) at Putrajaya, G-Tower Hotel (another Green Building), PAM (Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia/ Malaysia Architect Association) and many more strong customers, we believe that we have somehow formed a very high bar as a benchmark for comparison with new players in the market.

This test must be specially highlighted. Take note on the test dates of point 1 and 2 and the test date no. 3 which is done 10 months after point no. 2. Do you noticed that the results are even better?

We would say, no one has done such tests before on actual site. Most of their tests are done in the lab, where they create an ideal environment to test on their own product. To us, this is a way that they lie to themselves, trying to convince themselves that their product works, and at the same time, they do not have the confidence to proof that their product works upon application. This is because, the product may work in a certain way where you want it to work in the lab, but it may change when its being applied onto surfaces.

OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SATISFIED

If the above is not enough to build our confidence against new players, check out some words that our customers gave us…

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..

20111111-113802.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.

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.
