Material start-up that’s Raze-ing Hong Kong’s hygiene levels

Hong Kong material science start-up, Raze Technology has produced a simple self-sanitizing spray that decomposes 99.99% of pathogens including but not limited to bacteria, viruses, odours, mould and VOCs. With the current news agenda focused on maintaining a clean and healthy environment, Hong Kong transport companies, including KMB buses, Green Mini Buses and 18,000 Hong Kong Taxis, have turned to Raze to ensure optimal hygiene levels in their vehicles. This revolutionary solution, which has been independently verified prevents viruses and bacteria forming on a multitude of surfaces and is now available for both home and office use. One of the main verifications include a Toxicological Risk Assessment certificate from SGS Hong Kong, rendering it not only safe for humans and animals, but also environmentally sustainable.

 

Vincent Fong, CEO & Co-founder of Raze Technology Limited explains:

“After 10 years of research and development, we have optimized our patented, photocatalyst technology to make it available for mass use and are ready to revolutionize hygiene practices. With a simple spray, Raze’s photocatalyst nanoparticles absorb into any surface and form a non-toxic self-sanitizing coating that decomposes indoor pollutants and pathogens for 24 hours. Our aspirations for the future are not only to partner with more companies to protect staff and customers from disease and pollutants but to be synonymous with hygiene and collaborate with other brands and their product development to bring consumer confidence through our trusted technology.”

 

Utilizing light energy, a single coating within the home offers continuous protection for up to three months, with the capability of remaining effective for up to eight hours without light. In addition to making this solution suitable for home use, Raze Technology offers professional applications. Along with the KMB and Hong Kong Taxis contract, Raze Technology has been working with a number of hotels and offices to prevent the reproduction of bacteria, viruses and other disease-inducing agents while also purifying the air within its surroundings.

 

Both germ buster and air purifier combined, the spray can be applied to any surface, which coupled with a regular hygiene routine, means you and your family will be well-guarded against diseases around the clock and can breathe freely as air pollutants are removed with Raze.

 

The science behind the spray

Raze promises to help bring a home free from bacteria, viruses, mould, odours and VOCs, and has been rigorously tested and also validated by FSE Environmental Technologies Group Limited, Guangzhou Testing center of Industrial Microbiology, and Shanghai Weipu Chemical Industry Technology Service Company Limited.

 

The mechanism behind Raze is simple. Raze’s photocatalyst nanoparticles absorb into any surface, forming a durable self-sanitizing agent. When exposed to any form of light, electrons are released and reactive oxygen is formed. The reactive oxygen then binds to pathogens and decomposes them into harmless water and carbon dioxide molecules, which is effective in decomposing up to 99.99% of pathogens.

After the tremendous success of its Central pop-up store in February – nearly 7,000 units were sold in just one week – Raze Technology is bringing its laboratory to Causeway Bay from 20 March – 5 April 2020. With Raze technicians on hand to demonstrate the product, understand the science behind Raze technology and see how it can be a force for good in your home.
