Functional Coatings

Our passion to create beautiful surfaces through long-lasting colour applications led us to pioneer the launch of functional and protective coatings in our local building and construction industry.

Through ECOCLEAN coatings, we are moving our industry forward towards invisible self-cleaning coating systems that maintain the beauty of a surface while sustainably extending its life.

The benefits of ECOCLEAN coatings

Our ECOCLEAN coatings and systems are the next generation of functional and protective coatings that use photocatalyst and nanocatalyst technology to break down harmful compounds that come into contact with a coated surface. They have three main benefits in the built environment.


Protects concrete from carbonation and weathering maintaining surface appearance and extending asset life


Prevents graffiti from clinging to a coated surface avoiding the need for destructive and abrasive cleaning


Continuously breaks down harmful compounds on a surface reducing cleaning and maintenance costs

The use of functional and protective coatings means surfaces and buildings look almost as good as new. Lifecycle and cleaning costs are significantly reduced in addition to building materials having extended life.

Hear from Tony Watling, CEO of ECOTONE & ECOCLEAN on the benefits of functional coatings in the built environment.

Endless possibilities from exterior to interior surfaces

Photocatalyst and nanocatalyst coatings are one of the most exciting innovations that have come out of the building industry. From an external building perspective, these coatings use the natural power of light to self-clean surfaces with the double benefit of extending the lifecycle of an asset AND reducing its maintenance costs.

By working in the dark through nanotechnology, these coatings can also be used in the interior surfaces of buildings and transport systems including workplaces, schools, universities, hospitals, shopping centres, retail stores, apartment buildings, public toilets, hotels, airports, aeroplanes, buses, trams, and trains. Basically, any place that can benefit from an environmentally positive solution to clean air and a clean and safe surface environment.

External Surface Benefits

  • Maintains long-term appearance
  • Reduced lifecycle cost
  • Reduced cleaning cost
  • Longer asset life
  • Air purifying properties

Internal Surface Benefits

  • Improved Internal Air Quality (IAQ)
  • Antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-mould properties
  • Reduced maintenance/ cleaning costs
  • Deodorising
  • Reduced VOCs

ECOCLEAN Coatings delivering a Stunningly Sustainable result

Portsea Surf Life Saving Club – Victoria

Architect: Carr
Builder: IB Projects

Portsea Surf Life Saving Club was given an $8 million contemporary redevelopment where part of the brief was to protect the glass and external concrete to reduce maintenance costs and dirt build-up.

ECOCLEAN were engaged to coat the building’s glass windows (including the observation room) and all external concrete with our protective Self-Cleaning Coating. The coated surfaces will self-clean and look as new with the added benefits of purifying the air the that comes in contact with
