The commercial building in question is an excellent example of a successful collaboration between sister companies E-Betoonelement, CES, and Swetrak. Planning was the responsibility of CES, which also collaborates in the construction of the SG commercial building at Pärnu maantee in Tallinn. Setrak was responsible for the exterior walls, which have a TiO2 addition on the building, making the surfaces really gleaming when the sun shines.
The advantages of concrete elements with titanium oxide are their better resistance to weather conditions, the self-cleaning ability of the concrete surface, and its brighter and lighter look. Moreover, it has been shown that such a concrete surface fixes nitrogen compounds and thus cleans the environment. TiO2 itself is, as a fine powder, a bright white, persistent, and fixed substance, which is mainly used as a pigment in paints and paper.
