The Neolith + Slimtech Green Facades technology creates self-cleaning surfaces that purify the air by means of two fundamental processes: PHOTOCATALYSIS and SUPERHYDROPHILICITY.
Over time, building facades become dirty and full of contaminating agents that are carried through the air to the surface. When the surface enters into contact with sunlight (or some LED lights), titanium dioxide particles are activated which use light energy to transform the moisture in the air into oxidizing agents which destroy the nitrogen dioxide particles and contaminating agents and transform them into water vapor and salt.
This process, which is known as PHOTOCATALYSIS, is repeated millions of times per second until all contaminants are destroyed, meaning the surface is constantly being self-cleaned.
SUPERHYDROPHILICITY is produced to complete the treatment action. Thanks to the properties of Neolith + Slimtech Green Facades facades, water expands on the surface evenly when it rains to drag and remove any remaining dirt particles. This leaves the surface completely clean without any watermarks.
(formerly GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification) Certifies that Neolith meets strict chemical emissions limits, contributing to a healthier interior.
(formerly known as GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification) Certifies that Neolith is safe indoors for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly) and ensures that the product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
Confirms that Neolith meets European safety, health and environmental protection requirements.
LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a program that provides thirdparty verification of green buildings. Neolith satisfies safety prerequisites and earns points to help consumers achieve the desired level of certification for their home or commercial project
The USGBC, the council that oversees LEED, allows advocates for green-building policies and practices to come together
Neolith’s thin slabs use fewer raw materials, resulting in less soil erosion, without sacrificing any strength.
A slimmer slab means a lighter slab. With Neolith, it’s possible to transport more than double the amount of surface per container than with thicker products like marble, granite or quartz. The lighter weight allows for a more fuel efficient journey and considerable reductions in CO2 emissions.
Neolith uses the ultimate water-based decoration technology in its production, which, compared to the solvent-based decoration commonly used in industry, have a much lower environmental impact.
Neolith’s slim surface can be applied directly onto existing surfaces, saving remodelers from costly tear-outs while reducing landfill waste. No landfill waste means no waste transportation needed, further reducing net CO2 emissions
Neolith’s resistance to extremely high and low temperatures makes it ideal for ventilated façades. The thermal insulation and ventilation between the Neolith façade and the building itself optimizes the building’s energy consumption considerably (up to 40%).
