Synthetic materials like laminate floors and fibers in carpets, as well as some cleaning supplies, release harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, and butanol into your home. Because indoor environments often lack proper airflow, indoor air quality is often far worse than outdoor air quality leading to an increase in asthma and other respiratory ailments across the globe.

The problem

Toxic VOCs





Our Solution

Diatomix's patent pending catalyst continuously and permanently removes hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air by turning them into harmless carbon dioxide and water, allowing everyone to breathe a little easier. 

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) go in 

How it Works

Fine titanium dioxide particles are evenly coated onto high surface area diatoms. Diatoms naturally collect light which the titanium dioxide can use to break down the toxic VOC molecules in the air.  

Inspired By 4 Billion Years of R&D and Counting

Diatomix, Inc. has developed, tested and demonstrated feasibility of a patented bioengineered technology that actively and continuously improves indoor air quality


Diatomix offers the potential to redefine the paint industry landscape with an all-inclusive air purifying paint which can not only adsorb VOCs but also covert the adsorbed VOCs into nontoxic byproducts.
