Jamrock's. titanium dioxide, TiO2, Titanium is known among other things for its antibacterial properties and its ability to create self-cleaning white bright light reflecting surfaces, building materials and paint that prevent and stop the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew.
Studies have shown that titanium coated roofs help reduce air pollution and devour dangerous odors. As a naturally formed pharmaceutical and food grade titanium Jamrock's ET does not produce any Volatile Organic Chemicals, VOCs, or any other toxins.
ET's Greenhouse Gas Absorbing Minerals
In addition to titanium Jamrock’s line of Eco paints, ET, contains calcium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, and sodium hydroxide. They are three of the four best known greenhouse gas absorbing minerals. These hydroxides come from the rare naturally occurring calcium oxide, CaO, potassium oxide/potash, K2O and sodium oxide, Na2O, which are found in Jamrock’s marble and are noted in the chemical report by Lhoist.
Jamrock's greenhouse gas absorbing oxides are transformed into calcium hydroxide, Ca(OH)2, potassium hydroxide, KOH, and sodium hydroxide, NaOH when they are mixed or ‘slaked’ with water, H2O. These hydroxides have also been used for centuries to make soap.
Lhoist’s chemical report followed a site visit in 2013 by a team of their geologists. They collected random samples from the surface of Jamrock’s deposit. Their visit came after finding out that Jamrock Marble is a rare deposit with 98.6% lime/calcium oxide, CaO, as noted in the chemical report of 2012 by Jamaica’s Ministry of Mining.
Leading chemical companies like Merck sell 1 kg or 2.2 pounds of calcium oxide from marble like Jamrock's for $141.50. Jamrock is selling three pounds of its calcium oxide from marble for $15. Jamrock's low price is driven by our view that if more people on a global basis are able to easily access and use ET we can jointly help to mitigate one of the planet’s biggest current challenges, climate change.
ET's Lunar Minerals
Lhoist’s tests also unearthed traces of “native” nickel, Ni, and iron, Fe. 'Native' nickel and 'native' iron are rarely found on the Earth’s surface by terrestrial processes. According to galleries.com “It is mostly found in the form of meteorites that have impacted the Earth’s surface.” Jamrock’s meteorite origins based on its chemical make up is one of the reasons its line of Eco paints is named ET for Eco Titanium and of course Extraterrestrial.
