Sharp released MX-AZ03JK, a photocatalytic spray with deodorizing, antibacterial and antiviral properties, on July 17. The product is available on Sharp's own e-commerce site, COCORO STORE, and is priced at 3,828 yen including tax.
MX-AZ03JK is a photocatalytic spray that reacts to sunlight and indoor lighting and has high deodorizing, antibacterial and antiviral effects.
Photocatalyst is a substance that generates strong oxidizing power on its surface when exposed to light. It has the effect of oxidizing and decomposing odors, bacteria and viruses that come into contact with it.
This spray uses Sharp's proprietary visible light-responsive photocatalyst, which is based on the optical semiconductor technology and powder processing technology that Sharp has learned in the development of MFP. It reacts to a wider range of wavelengths of light than conventional products and shows excellent decomposition capability even in the weakest light of indoor lighting.
It can be sprayed on wallpaper, floors, furniture and even clothing. Even if you continue to use it, the photocatalyst itself is not consumed but stays in the place where it is sprayed, so it has a long-lasting effect.
The company also conducts various tests at specialized institutions to confirm the safety of the product.
The content is 200 ml. The initial monthly production volume is 3000 bottles.
Currently, the product is only available for purchase on Sharp's e-commerce site, COCORO STORE, but the company plans to gradually expand its sales channels.
