Description

AT-03 contains Amorphous phase Titanium Dioxide as well as the crystal TiO2;

While Amorphous TiO2 is thermally treated with high temperature curing, Amorphous phase transforms to Anatase Crystal phase; this brings hardness of the applied thin film;

Higher temperature give better performance for adhesion and self-cleaning property, but DO NOT exceed over 850 degC, which allows to transform crystal phase from Anatase to Rutile;

Our business with all the ceramic tile manufacturer is using this AT-03.

  • Caution for Use

  • At the higher atmosphere temperature in summer, it is suggested not to apply while the surface temperature is too high: Because the evaporation urges the liquid dryness too quickly, which interrupts the liquid to level the film.
  • Diluted sol must be used as quick as possible to avoid the viscosity rise, and the agglomeration: diluted sol duration must be a few days after dilution.
  • At dilution, it must be used distilled water. If alcohol is used to dilute, it may have chance to agglomerate ;
  • Before start application, it is recommended to apply as a test at somewhere not noticeable.
  • It is requested to read and prepare with Materials Safety Data Sheet and Product specification which shall be handed at a purchase.
