Tio Systems Co., Ltd.

Promoting the provision of photocatalytic technology to foreign companies. We have been in the business for 30 years, and have about 4,000 installation cases. Forms a thin film of 100% titanium dioxide with high durability, high decomposition power, and high transparency at room temperature on a substrate using a 100% inorganic binder.

Manufacture, sale, and installation of UV and visible light compatible photocatalytic water solution.
We apply photocatalytic water solution, which can form only titanium dioxide-based film, to the interior and exterior of buildings and other structures.
The company's strength lies in its abundant number of construction projects, which number 4,000 nationwide.
The company is actively promoting plant operations in various countries through alliances with companies in Asia, the U.S., and Europe.
The antifouling service is available for all types of buildings and structures. Antibacterial and deodorizing services are available for facilities sensitive to bacteria and odors, including medical and nursing care facilities, public restrooms, hotels, and research facilities. Specialized coating teams are located in four locations throughout Japan.

The company also manufactures and sells photocatalytic filters for air purifiers and other equipment. In terms of sales, the company has many business partners.
Completely cleared the problem of photocatalytic degradation of conventional binders and organic substrates.
Plans to operate a factory in Tokyo in partnership with a medium-sized company.


Sales Pitch

We can form a tough (7H) film made of 100% titanium oxide on any kind of foundation at room temperature by using an organic binder.
A photocatalyst function can be imparted to any kind of board, metal, resin, tile, or wood at room temperature. Both durability and resolving power are of the highest level in the industry. This is applicable to air filters, water purifying filters, wallpaper, building materials, metals, tiles, and stone materials having antibacterial, deodorizing, and harmful gas decomposing functions.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
TioSkycoat is a unique technology for producing a photocatalytic solution and forming a coated film, and is patented in many countries. Photocatalysts have a useful function of decomposing hazardous organic substances. However, this function causes the difficult problem that the binder (usually an organic substance) is decomposed and the coated film peels off from the substrate. TioSkycoat can cover any substrate with a hard film of 100% titanium oxide by using a binder (completely inorganic) that cannot be decomposed by photocatalysts at room temperature. It has the industry’s best performance in terms of both durability and decomposing power. We have abundant experience of performing several thousand projects all over Japan.

[Business description]
1. Production and sales of a water solution of photocatalysts
2. Coating service: We provide the service of coating a water solution of photocatalysts on the internal and external surfaces of buildings and structures for the purposes of contamination prevention, antibacterial function, and deodorization. We can apply the coatings to any buildings or installations for preventing contamination, and to facilities that are sensitive to bacteria or odor, such as medical and nursing facilities, public lavatories, hotels, and research laboratories for antibacterial function and deodorization. We dispatch dedicated, highly-experienced coating teams from four bases in Japan to provide our coating services promptly.
3. Products: We produce and sell, on request, filters having photocatalytic functions for air cleaners or air conditioners. We work with a number of business partners in our sales activities.

[Strength of products/technologies]
In order to effectively use a photocatalyst, it is necessary to attach titanium oxide to a substrate by using a binder material. However, the binder material, which is usually an organic substance, is decomposed by the photocatalyst and so peels off from the substrate. This has been a problem for the photocatalyst industry for a long time. TioSkycoat is a unique patented technology that completely solves the problem. TioSkycoat has six key strengths:
1. TioSkycoat uses a completely inorganic binder that cannot be decomposed by photocatalysts and has durability equivalent to that of the substrate.
2. The surface of a substrate can be coated with a film of 100% titanium oxide having a pencil hardness of 7H, which is resistant to decomposition.
3. An organic substrate is decomposed and usually cannot be used. However, with TioSkycoat, it does not matter whether the substrate is organic or inorganic or what the material is.
4. The decomposition activity index of 24 nmol certified by the Photocatalysis Industry Association is the top level in the industry (more than twice the average of other products).
5. Photocatalysts are usually applied at normal temperature. (Titanium oxide, when heated above 600C, irreversibly loses its decomposing power.)
6. TioSkycoat has been proven to be harmless to the human body.

[Representative's message]
TioSkycoat uses a material that was accidentally discovered when studying a glaze, which is an inorganic substance, used in Arita pottery for 400 years. The material dramatically improved the durability, which had been a weakness of photocatalysts, and decomposing power. We are collaborating with external companies in developing applications in new fields other than contamination prevention, antibacterial function, or deodorization as a part of the existing or novel business of each company. There are many applications, for example, preventing degradation of perishable food, cleaning the environment including hazardous gas decomposition in various factories, filters for air conditioners, antibacterial and deodorizing treatment of the interior of vehicles, and preventing contamination of solar panels. We are keen to hear of the needs from companies interested in environmental cleanup.
