We create comfortable and hygienic living environments.
Antibacterial mechanism
HYDROTECT exerts various effects, including anti-dirt and anti-odor effects, by decomposing and reducing bacteria. It reduces the production of dirt and odors and facilitates the cleaning of interior spaces that need to be kept hygienically clean, such as toilets, kitchens and bathrooms.
Antibacterial mechanism
Antibacterial effect
When exposed to the light, Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus are reduced by 99% or more after 4 hours*¹, and in locations where there is minimal light, they are reduced by 99% or more after 24 hours*².
Antibacterial effect
*1: The figure is obtained by reducing the remaining coliform numbers after 4 hours and 24 hours by 99% (1/100) or less when using non-processed tile.
*2: Evaluated near a window during daytime (Ultraviolet Intensity: 0.25mW/cm2) pursuant to JIS R 1702.
*3: Evaluated pursuant to JIS Z 2801.
*4: Coliform numbers after 24 hours in a poorly-lit location
*5: When the remaining coliform numbers are less than 10, they are indicated as 10 in accordance with the JIS Standard.
* The above results were produced by our tests, and the effects may vary depending on the conditions.
‚óŹ ECO-2000 HYDROTECT Color Coat for interiors also has the same effects
Anti-mold and anti-algae effects
Mold and algae not only spoil the appearance of a building, they also lead to the deterioration of the building and the building materials. HYDROTECT reduces the reproduction of mold and algae through a photocatalytic reaction and the hybrid effect of the anti-mold and anti-algae components.*¹
Anti-mold and anti-algae effects
[Test conditions]
Mold resistance test: Building finish coat pursuant to JIS A6909
Type of mold used for evaluation: Aspergillus niger (black mold)
Test environment: A dark place
[Test conditions]
Algae resistance test: In-house testing method
Type of mold used for evaluation: Chlorella
Test environment: 12 hours in a brightly-lit location » 12 hours in a dark location (28 cycles repeated) Immersed in warm water at a temperature of 40 degrees for three days = equivalent to a lapse of 3 years (evaluated by our company)
