New Tile Roofs Fight Air Pollution in Tampa

This is a great new technology for tile roofs, that will not only help  roofs stay cleaner longer, but actually help clean the air we all breathe here in Tampa! 
Boral Roofing has developed a Titanium Dioxide based coating process that uses what is called Nanotechnology to fight algae growth. This coating will hopefully put an end to tile breaking pressure washing of these kinds of roofs.
High Pressure Washing one of these tile roofs may harm or remove the coating. Titanium is a chemically resistant tile roof coating that will be unaffected by the roof cleaning chemicals we currently use!
This is great news for Tampa Homeowners, because it will greatly extend the time between those dreaded roof cleaning letters!

BoralPure™ SMOG-EATING Tile is the first of-its-kind product in sustainable concrete roofing tiles that reduces the formation of smog. The revolutionary SMOG-EATING Tile can be installed on both new residential and commercial buildings, as well as re-roofing projects. The only concrete tile roofing solution in the U.S. that mitigates air pollution, SMOG-EATING Tile represents one means for builders and consumers alike to protect the environment. 


Air pollution is an undisputed problem in the U.S. and the World Health Organization estimates 2.4 million people die annually world wide of causes attributable to air pollution. In one year, 2,000 square feet of the SMOG-EATING Tile mitigates the same amount of nitrogen oxide (a major component of smog) produced by one car driving up to 10,800 miles, making BoralPure™ SMOG-EATING Tile an important solution to smog and the health problems it causes.

The BoralPure™ SMOG-EATING Technology works via a catalyst embedded in the upper portion of the roof tile. When exposed to sunlight it speeds up oxidization reducing nitrogen oxide, which can be generated from fossil fuel burning processes resulting from operation of motor vehicles. Working much like a catalytic converter does in a car; SMOG-EATING Tile transforms harmful substances into safe ones, protecting the quality of the air we breathe.
