In conjunction with our manufacturing partner, Active Walls, we have the most complete line of photocatalytic products for the residential, commercial, educational, and healthcare markets available.
Who Are we?
Activa North America is a group of partners with decades of experience in managing businesses, distributing consumer products, and marketing the latest technologies into retail and industrial markets; this group is a combination of Activa North America and Active Walls SL’s founder, Jesus Serra Motas. We offer the North American market a structure that includes corporate offices in Elgin, Illinois, a distribution center in central Illinois, and manufacturing facilities in Europe. We have developed original equipment manufacturing (OEM) coatings for glass and exterior surfaces (like pavers and cement structures), and now we introduce the Activa Paint line to the retail and commercial/healthcare markets.
Our manufacturing operations are ISO 9001 and ISO 14000 certified, and our products and the science behind them are backed by independent laboratories of international prestige ranging from the CSIC (Spanish National Research Council), universities, hospitals, and institutions related to wellbeing around the world.
Our goal is the continual improvement of the health of our customers and to reduce pollution and infected surfaces where they live, work, and play. We create innovative products that improve the lives of people, protecting their health and lowering maintenance and healthcare costs. We are a truly sustainable, intelligent coating.
Invented in the late 1960s by Dr. Akira Fujishima and Dr. Kenichi Honda, photocatalysis works as a sort of reverse photosynthesis in a similar way that solar panels use light energy to harness power. Natural or artificial light encounters the TiO2 particulate and “excites” it, thus energizing the particle. In doing so, whatever contaminant may be on the surface is broken down at the molecular level. In the case of hard surfaces, the surface becomes self-cleaning and purifies the air as polluted air passes over the surface. The treated areas are also anti-microbial, as both viral and bacterial bodies cannot exist in that environment.
We want people to enjoy a cleaner and healthier life, with significant cost savings from reduced sick time and lower maintenance costs. We are the first, and best, with our full line of paints, clear coats, and cement coatings. We are here to make the world cleaner and healthier with our easy to apply products. It is the simple intelligence of Activa.
