Photocatalyst Nanotechnology Helps Building Exteriors Retain Reflectivity

Serefex announced today that it has begun marketing a line of exterior photocatalyst nanotechnology through its master distribution agreement with Rochester Hills, MI- based Triton Technology Group.

Serefex's agreement with Triton provides it with a product line of technological solutions designed to restore and maintain a building's healthy environment.

According to Brian Dunn, president, and chief executive officer of Serefex, the products will help sustain a healthy construction sector, such as the outside, rooftop or neighboring areas. The self-cleaning photocatalyst uses the sun’s rays to avoid algae, mold and bacteria. It corrodes grease, oil, grime, bacteria, algae, and other hazardous deposits. They will maintain the surface original color.

The reduction in reflectivity determined at the Department of Energy's Cool Roof Calculator, correlates to increased energy consumption. The products use UV rays help a white roof retain its reflectivity, which in turn increases energy savings.
