MakMax Australia offers a membrane fabric that keeps shade structures clean throughout the year, reducing the need for maintenance while enhancing their appearance.

PTFE fibreglass coated with non-toxic and flame-resistant TiO² (titanium dioxide) produces a photocatalytic membrane that functions like the leaves of a tree, providing shade and comfort while actively neutralising airborne pollutants and odours.

The unique self-cleaning properties of the coating allow the membrane material to break down dirt and other organic materials deposited on the surface through a chemical reaction with the sun’s UV rays as well as oxygen and water vapour present in the air. Through a process of oxidation-reduction, these materials are converted into harmless gases and natural components without using excess chemicals, solvents or water.

The resulting sediments are simply washed away by rain, leaving the membrane bright and clean, and reducing the need for frequent servicing and maintenance.

MakMax’s TiO² coated fabric is available in three choices, each graded according to their degree of translucency.
