what is NawKote-PC?

NawKote-PC is a clear coating which can be applied on many different surfaces, including glass, tile, precast concrete, masonry, and other painted or unpainted surfaces. NawKote-PC is a water-based, nontoxic coating system that gives the treated area properties that help prevent carbonation, reduce algae-buildup, shield the surface from harsh UV-rays, and yield self-cleaning attributes to the underlying surface.

NawKote-PC’s coating provides many beneficial characteristics that help maintain a building’s appearance due to its self- cleaning properties that reduce life-cycle costs. Treated surfaces carry no electric charge and reduce the absorption of dust and dirt. The hydrophilic surface wets out evenly, which leads to faster drying and dramatically reduces the amount of dirt sticking to the surface.

 

History of Photocatalysis

The technology behind NawKote-PC was first discovered in 1967 by Japanese scientist Prof. Fujishima. In order to standardize photocatalytic products, the Photocatalysis Industry Association of Japan (PIAJ) was established in 2006 with purpose of promoting and improving the quality, performance, and safety of those products. 

Ever since, photocatalytic technology has been developed and improved by multiple industries to create sustainable solutions for buildings. In fact, NASA’s photocatalytic research has led to the launch of the technology into space!

Since 2016, Nawkaw has been testing photocatalytic application in field, and has utilized it within the Australian market to great success. 

How does it work?

NawKote-PC consists of a high-quality, unique formulation including photocatalytic TiO2 nanoparticles that build a long-lasting protective barrier. By utilizing light from natural and artificial sources, NawKote-PC removes harmful contaminants in the air decomposing them when they come into contact with the coating.

What are the Benefits of NawKote-PC?

NawKote-PC reduces the absorption of particles and other contaminants, prevents organic matter clinging to the surface, destroys bacteria, viruses, and fungi through chemical reactions, and acts as a water magnet. Because of these processes, there are several benefits available for a wide range of applications, both commercial and residential!

Interior surfaces can yield superior air quality due to the decomposition of viruses, bacteria, mold, fungi, and other airborne pathogens caused by chemical reactions on the surface. NawKote-PC removes foul odors, reduces cleaning costs, and releases oxygen into the surrounding environment.

Exterior surfaces benefit greatly from the self-cleaning properties of NawKote-PC. Rainfall or water of any kind washes away dirt and debris. Black mold, fungi, and other contaminants will be unable to grow and allow surfaces to retain their original appearance! 

In both indoor and outdoor applications, NawKote-PC reduces airborne pollutants, extend the lifespan of surfaces, and purify the surrounding air. NawKote-PC is a sustainable solution to a wide range of problems. For example, the application of NawKote-PC to solar panels increases their ability to generate green energy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Hidden item

NawKote-PC is a photocatalytic and environmentally friendly coating system that yields air purifying and self-cleaning properties to surfaces.

More specifically, NawKote-PC utilizes light to activate chemical reactions between the surface coated and the air in contact with it. These chemical reactions decompose pollutants, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful substances and release oxygen alongside other harmless byproducts.

The driving force behind NawKote-PC is photocatalysis!

Photocatalysis a chemical reaction that’s accelerated by light. When light from the sun or artificial sources strike the titanium dioxide in NawKote-PC, the titanium dioxide pulls water molecules towards itself. That pull is called superhydrophilicity and ensures that two essential processes can occur.

The first is that water molecules are so drawn to titanium dioxide, they slide underneath dirt, debris, graffiti, and other contaminants on the surface. On exterior surfaces when it rains, the water runs off of the surface with the contaminants and the surface will clean itself!

The other essential process is that water molecules are oxidized. More specifically, into two oxidizing species: hydroxyl radical and Oxygen Hole. This process releases oxygen into the air and destroys bacteria, viruses, and fungi in contact with the process as well!

NawKote-PC can be applied to nonporous or slightly porous surfaces. These include painted surfaces, ceramics, glass, building panels, concrete, and others! Feel free to reach out and see if NawKote-PC is right for your surfaces.

The cost of applying NawKote-PC is dependent upon several factors, including the amount of surface that needs application, the job site location, and difficulty of accessing the surface itself, and whether NawKote-PC is applied in conjunction with other sustainable Nawkaw products. Please reach out to us directly for more information concerning your project! 

Photocatalytic application enables years of benefits both inside and out. Outside, photocatalytic surfaces can yield a return on investment in just two years, and inside, photocatalytic surfaces can yield superior air quality to occupants. 

While the length of effectivity ranges due to traffic, climate, and similar external factors, most photocatalytic applications remain effective for a minimum of ten years. Please contact Nawkaw Corporation for more information specific to your project!

NawKote-PC provides a multifaceted solution for a variety of applications, both indoors and out.


Outdoors, NawKote-PC provides self-cleaning properties using sunlight and rain. Surfaces will retain their initial appearance for longer, wash off contaminants faster, and release oxygen into urban and traditionally polluted areas as a byproduct! NawKote-PC can also decompose smog, smoke, and pollution!


Indoors and out, NawKote-PC purifies the air, breaks down bacteria and viruses, and removes odors. NawKote-PC oxygenates the air and reduces overall exposure and infection risk.

NawKote-PC is applied by our Certified Stain Applicators. Our applicators are internally trained and know the precise application procedure for every surface we apply NawKote-PC to.

NawKote-PC application is very efficient. Spray application times vary from project to project; however, the application process includes several coats which dry within twenty minutes. 

Please contact Nawkaw Corporation to see how quickly we can send our expert applicators to your location!

Of course! Our Technical Data Sheet also provides more information specific to architects and general contractors. The chemistry behind our coating is scientifically backed and has been proven on real surfaces around the world for decades!
