Mission to Implement
Photocat pioneered the development of the world’s first certified after market treatment to make window glass selfcleaning ShineOn®.
This product was the first to be tested by an independent professional testing organization verifying that the product was indeed self cleaning according to European Standard. This product is now in the hands of professional marketers in a number of countries spreading it out to make more and more glass become self-cleaning.
The company history started in 2006
It was when one of the founders got the idea to build on his basic particle work and make surfaces become active using photocatalytic materials. The idea took a while to mature, however, once matured the development was quite rapid. The first version of the product was launched in Germany in 2007 and now in improved version also marketed in USA and U.K.
