TiONA® TiO2-based pigments are widely used to provide whiteness and opacity in many applications as paints, coatings, plastics and paper. CristalACTiV™ ultrafine TiO2-based materials are the key ingredients of a number of catalytic systems designed to significantly reduce pollution levels. They’re used either for pollution control at source (emissions from power stations or heavy duty diesel engines) or for in-situ pollution remediation, using photocatalytic materials based on CristalACTiV™ active ingredients.
This website is an information hub for CristalACTiV™ photocatalytic technologies, providing details on their performance as well as on the most significant systems based on our products. For a comprehensive look at our company and products, please also visit our corporate site.
