Self-cleaning fabric roof material

May 02, 2008 |

Tensile membrane roof is coated with titanium dioxide that provides self-cleaning properties to help extend the vibrancy of the non-toxic material. The titanium dioxide on Birdair's TiO2 tensile fabric membrane acts as a photocatalyst, using the sun's UV radiation, along with the oxygen and water vapor present in the air, to create active oxygen ions. The active oxygen ions, in turn, decompose the organic dirt into natural components by an oxidation-reduction reaction. When it rains, the resulting decomposed material washes off without leaving streaks. The fabric provides deodorizing and antibacterial properties, and is ideal for urban or heavy traffic areas, where non-industrial pollutants accumulate.
