Other products

In addition to the standard product range for mineral surfaces, Joma has also developed a range of nano-TiO2 products for other substrates and functionalities, from self-cleaning textiles to UV-protection to solar cell materials. These specialised products are generally offered only with joint development or other agreement. Please take contact if you have an interest in such product development.

 

Customer specific products and formulations

Products in this category typically result from a joint development program with a specific goal, or customisation under another type of agreement. Examples include:

  • ·         Formulations optimized for specific surfaces (pH, concentration, potentially binders)
  • ·         Formulations with specific compatibility needs (corrosion properties, viscosity ranges)
  • ·         Concentrates for mixing into customer formulations

 

Lab protoype products

We are always busy inventing and improving, and have exciting products in the pipeline that show great performance but are still being tweaked or tested for long-term performance. Select customers and development partners may be offered to test a prototype product for their application. The non customer specific development generally focuses on:

  • ·         Variants for new substrate types
  • ·         Variants with better potential cost efficiency
  • ·         Variants with hazardous ingredients replaced

 

R&D products

This category of products are generally accessible only to our R&D partners, but exceptions might be made for sufficiently interesting cases. This category includes

  • ·         Formulations in non-aqueous solvents
  • ·         Powder products (including Dye Solar Cell materials)
  • ·         Specific nanoparticle properties

Joma PROTECT White

Water repelling, self-cleaning concrete treatment

Joma PROTECT series combine photocatalytic self-cleaning power with a super-hydrophobic surface: two self-cleaning mechanisms that work together.

 

PROTECT White is a non-corrosive variant of the PROTECT using a different chemistry for hydrophobization. This gives superior performance on certain surfaces, typically natural concretes and white painted surfaces, but can potentially give a whitening effect on darker coloured surfaces. Another key advantage is the simpler and safer handling, storage and transportation. 

Like with the other Joma products, PROTECT White is simply sprayed, brushed or rolled onto the surface. The nanoparticles diffuse into small pores to make a high surface of active sites, while other components form a water-repellent layer underneath the self-cleaning zone. Achieving both of these effects at the same time is a unique feature of our Hydro series products.

When exposed to the UV radiation in natural sunlight, the active nanostructures produce radicals that attack microorganisms or air pollution. At the same time, the passive super-hydrophobic effect prevents most biological matter from sticking to the surface in the first place, and helps to keep the surface dry. This combination is particularly good for tilted or vertical surfaces, but also works on horizontal paving stones.

 

 

FEATURES

  • ·         Active combination of photocatalytic and passive water proofing.
  • ·         Easy to apply by spraying, rolling  or brushing
  • ·         Extremely diffusion open
  • ·         Neutral pH and no hazardous ingredients
  • ·         Recommended for: natural concrete or as overcoat on white silicate/inorganic paint.
  • ·         One liter covers approx. 10 m2 depending on surface porosity.

 


* This product is not recommended for coating onto emulsion paints or plastics or other organic substrates. Application on surfaces already treated with other coatings or sealants may give variable results. Consult Joma to find out the best combination for your needs.

** Pictures above display the extreme water pearling seen shortly after treatment, which is not necessarily representative for long-term appearance. The main benefits are invisible.

Joma PROTECT

Self-cleaning and water protection in one coating

Joma PROTECT series combine photocatalytic self-cleaning power with a waterproofing treatment: two protective mechanisms that work together.

Like with the other Joma products, PROTECT is simply sprayed, brushed or rolled onto the surface. The nanoparticles diffuse into the natural cracks and pores of the surface and bind to the material, making a durable structure with a highly active surface. At the same time, other components modify the pore surfaces making them super-hydrophobic and preventing water - and waterborne fouling - from penetrating into the bulk material, while still allowing vapour through.

The combination effectively boosts the self-cleaning by preventing fouling from reaching below the active zone, and by providing a quicker drying surface. In addition, the reduced water uptake provides its own benefit of frost and weathering resistance.

Achieving both of these effects in the same product is a technological feat, and we see no comparable product on the market.

When exposed to the UV radiation in natural sunlight, the active nanostructures produce radicals that attack microorganisms or air pollution. At the same time, the super-hydrophobic pores prevents most biological matter from getting a proper foothold, and helps to keep the surface dry. This combination is particularly good for tilted or vertical surfaces, but also works on horizontal paving stones.

FEATURES

  • ·         Combined photocatalytic and hydrophobic surface
  • ·         Easy to apply by spraying, rolling  or brushing
  • ·         Extremely diffusion open
  • ·         Corrosive (pH 12-13). Must be handled and stored as Dangerous Goods.
  • ·         Recommended for: concrete paving stones, bricks and roof tiles.
  • ·         Also suitable for: natural stones or as overcoat on silicate/inorganic paint.
  • ·         One liter covers approx. 10 m2 depending on surface porosity.

* This product is not recommended for coating onto emulsion paints or plastics or other organic substrates. Application on surfaces already treated with other coatings or sealants may give variable results. Consult Joma to find out the best combination for your needs.

** Pictures above show extreme water pearling effect as seen shortly after application, and is not representative for the long-term appearance and functionality. Unfortunately the invisible part of the protection is hard to capture in pictures.
