Just recently in March 2013, SmartCoat was being invited to Shenzhen to apply our nano tio2 at one of the hospital call LongHuaZhen hospital at Long Hua Zhen. We presented to the hospital and found that the personnel did a very thorough home work on us, SmartCoat on what we do, and what we have done and they totally understands the concept of SmartCoat. We were greatly impressed with such professionalism.
There is only 1 sector that we were allowed to take pictures and it is located on the ground floor of the hospital.
During the application at one part of the hospital
Samples were collected after the application and they will then start to compare the results against a controlled environment which has not been treated by SmartCoat, just opposite this room.
They will do the monitor for 3 months where each week they will collect samples and do the bacteria counts on the same surfaces they took.
Verbally, we heard that the 1st result was great.. we are now hoping that the rest of the results for the next 3 months will be good too.
Working in china is very difficult. We may have all the proof, certifications and standards passed both locally in Malaysia and in overseas like the EU, but China have their own standards. Still a considerably long way to go, but SmartCoat has made its first step into the Mainland..
Then we applied its medical storage rooms
Lastly, we proceeded with the application of SmartCoat at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
Over the passed month, we have also applied 2 hotels at the state of Selangor, Holiday Villa Hotel which is located at Subang Jaya and We also did a demo site for the exteriors of Saujana Golf Club located at Saujana itself.
here are some pictures showing the application at the hotel room of Holiday Villa Hotel
we also performed an air quality test for this room before and after the application of our nano tio2
Here is the lab test report performed for this site
in this case, we compared a treated and non treated room, and these are the results. You will notice the IAQ is much better compared to the room that is not treated with our nano tio2
Here are some pictures taken at an exterior wall of Saujana Golf and Country Club
Here is what we did. We cleaned and applied the middle part of this wall and then we do a comparison later.
We also get the lab people to come and perform a surface swap test for us on the treated surface
Even before the test results of the swap test is out, we can already tell the difference visually
Here is a closer look… Can you spot the difference already? We left this site for 10 days after application and here is what we can see clearly the effect of self cleaning with our nano tio2
Swap Test Result
if it is difficult to see through the naked eyes, we have also performed a surface swap test to show you the difference
Here shows you that the wall that has been treated with our nano tio2 has much lesser microbes on it. If this test were to be performed 2 to 3 weeks after the application, the results could be much better
After a year of successfully proven effects of the self cleaning part of our nano tio2 at the C1 and C2 part of the building, we have been awarded yet another section from the Works Ministry of Malaysia at the section of C3.
Here are some pictures of the project:

Today, 23rd November 2011, we have started our nano tio2 application at the Core Section of the External Feature of this building.
This section will be the signature of the new REHDA Building and it will also be Arc Flash’s nano tio2 self cleaning coating’s signature as well.
The external application is scheduled to be completed by the end of November before we rest for 3 weeks while waiting for the interiors of the building to be completed before we proceed with finishing up the application of the whole interiors for the Indoor Air Quality features of our nano tio2.
It will be scheduled to be completed by the end of December before the hand over of the building. We are keeping our fingers crossed hoping everything will be on schedule so that we can complete it on time..
More Updates will be produced as soon, by sections of the progress of our work..
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..
Ivan is cleaning the glass panels before he can apply our tio2 on. It’s definitely not an easy job….
all these glasses has to be applied 1 by 1, which takes a lot of time… But with our electrostatic sprayer, no problem…..
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..
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.
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.

Have You encountered any invisible enemies? Im sure you do… Im not talking about ghosts here…. Im talking about bacteria, mold/fungus, bad odor, virus, and other contaminants which are harmful to our lives… Please take some time to go through what i have to say if you are aware that your children playing with the invisible enemies…
A NEW TECHNOLOGY TO BUST OUR INVISIBLE ENEMIES..
The warm and humid tropical climate in Malaysia and the rest of the Southeast Asian region creates prime breeding ground for harmful bacterial, yeast and viral organisms. This can aggravate allergies of the sinus, skin and eyes, as well as particularly increase the risk of contagious air-borne diseases such as tuberculosis, SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and recently, the H1N1 pandemic. In the recent years, consumers have been flooded with an influx of air purifier products – ranging from compact air ionizers to air-conditioners which kill harmful organisms in the air. Well-intended as they are created to be, these products are limited to their areas of application and require hardware installation as well as periodical maintenance. But with the ARC FLASH’s NANOYO Nanotech Photo-catalyst, consumers here can now enjoy the high quality clean air and environmental protection which have been enjoyed by residents in Japan, USA, Taiwan and Hong Kong. NANOYO photo-catalytic is a colorless liquid coating with nano-sized titanium dioxide (TiO2) as its main ingredient. As a semi-conducting photo-catalyst, TiO2 lowers the chemical activation energy to enhance chemical reaction or accelerate the reaction rate under photo-irradiation. However, TiO2 does not decompose or degrade from any resulting chemical reaction due to photo-irradiation. NANOYO is as innovative as it is convenient without requiring hardware installation and periodical maintenance. Application is easy – spraying the liquid paint onto the intended surfaces using the special electrostatic sprayer. Suitable applications for NANOYO are especially the interiors of residences, offices, healthcare institutions and automobiles.
We adopt the best application tool using the ELECTROSTATIC Spraying Technology, making nanoyo to be the first and only who use this technology for nano tio2 application in the world.
HOW IT WORK?
1) we apply nanoyo by directly spraying the product onto surfaces with our electrostatic sprayer
2) The photocatalyst effect will oxidize anything that is organic that comes into contact with nanoYo’s surfaces.
Nanoyo oxidizes the microbes by turning them into h2o and co2. This process will repeatedly happens for 2 years or more.
Locally, NANOYO has been applied in many industries over the 5 years of entry in the Malaysian market. They have been applied in the Education industries, Hospitals, Hotels and Resorts, Offices, Residential as well as private automotives. NANOYO has been protecting these clienteles from their invisible enemies, ever since.
THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE MANY PLACES WHICH HAVE BEEN TREATED WITH ARC FLASH’s NANOYO. MORE PICTURES CAN BE FOUND AT OUR WEB SITE at nanoyo
EXTERIOR APPLICATION FOR JKR Building at Putrajaya
These pictures shows how clean nanoyo’s surfaces are. The tests are taken weeks after the application on the exterior walls (JKR Building Exterior) and months after the application on the chair. Both showing promising results.
OUR SIGNATURE Project, THE DIAMOND BUILDING, of Suruhanjaya Tenaga, Putrajaya. The first PLATINIUM GREEN BUILDING status
Gleneagles Hospital for the anti bacteria and anti VOCs application
Application at Cheras Pantai Hospital
Johnson&johnson Clean Room Application
Suitable surfaces within buildings to apply NANOYO would be ceilings and walls, as with car seats, dashboards and side panels in a car surfaces. When TiO2 is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight or any other visible light sources, this maximizes the oxidization capabilities of TiO2 to degrade the harmful micro-organisms in a process similar to photosynthesis, call PHOTOCATALYST. So happened bacteria, virus, mold/fungus and even odor are all organic in nature. This thus produces purified air which is 99.97% bacteria-free, virus-free, mold/fungus-free and also odor-free.
A CASE STUDY: http://josbrouwers.bwk.tue.nl/publications/Conference44.pdf
Here is a study done in University of Twente, Netherlands, showing the effectiveness of photocatalyst oxidations against VOCs and other gasses in indoors.
Where nanoYo is suitable to be applied?
NANOYO (photo catalyst) contain high level of Tio2 which has high chemistry stability and non-toxic characteristic. The process of light illumination is able to activate NANOYO to decompose microorganism and virus. It may avoid over using the medication disinfectant products which is possibly to cause the viral mutation. Besides its hassle-free application process, NANOYO is odorless and non-toxic, while being self-disinfectant, self-deodorizing and protecting the treated surfaces from stains after application during its effective treatment period. It does not contain medicinal substances so it will not cause antibody development and reduce the environmental pollution. This technology will enable a safer way for long term sterilization. NANOYO dries almost instantly after being applied onto designated surfaces and forms a nano film, filled with tio2. It is advised that the treated surfaces not be cleaned or affected in any way from interference of other chemical cleaning products for the first day time while the TiO2 is hardening on the treated areas. Base on the analysis report, NANOYO can remove unpleasant smell, eliminated harmful substances, prevent dirt collection, anti-fungal, anti-mold and most important is it will not release the deleterious substances TIO2 has been the top of the list in science studies around the world. With its ability to decompose not only microbes but also many gasses released from compounds be it naturally or industrially, this new concept may be one of the most effective way to protect us from harmful contaminants in the future.
Nanoyo has is available for cars too..
Formerly known as Arc Flash, nanoYo was adopted by Mitsubishi Electronics in Year 2010 as the anti bacteria DIY for their customers.
