Airlite, a revolutionary, pollution-absorbing paint technology, launchesThursday 18 January
According to the W.H.O, over 3 million deaths a year are linked to poor air quality. Currently the UK has the second highest number of premature deaths in the EU caused by Nitrogen Dioxide, and is home to two of the most polluted roads in the world (Oxford Street and Marylebone Road). Whilst the Government and Mayor of London work towards initiating directives promoting cleaner air, what we urgently need is a simple, easy-to-implement solution, that makes an immediate difference to our quality of life right now. Airlite is the answer. It is a straightforward to use, non-invasive, yet extremely effective paint-technology that directly tackles pollution; and it launches at ecobuild.
The effect of poor air on our lives cannot be underestimated. The noxious air we breathe, both inside and outside the buildings we live and work in, not only increases levels of airway inflammation, bronchitis, asthma and allergies, it also adversely damages our environment in widely documented ways. Now we have an actual answer to this pollution conundrum we find ourselves in: coating exterior and interior walls with Airlite. Doing this benefits our health and the environment. It’s a winning double whammy.
The Airlite technology is no gimmick. It was developed originally in 2003, by leading scientists, and has been rigorously tested since; before its official launch this year. It has proven itself in some of the most heavily polluted areas of the world. Its efficacy in the Umberto Tunnel, in Rome, is there for all to see (click here to watch the video and learn more). After 10 years, Airlite is still reducing over 51% of the airborne Nitrogen Dioxide and the white coating looks as fresh and clean as the day it was applied.
ELIMINATES UP TO 88.8% OF AIR POLLUTION
Airlite neutralises pollutants like nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide up to 88.8%, returning air to its pure, pristine state.
ELIMINATES 99.9% OF BACTERIA
In a world of super bacteria and constantly-evolving microbes, Airlite helps keep you healthy by eliminating harmful germs from your surroundings.
CUTS COOLING COSTS UP TO 50%
Airlite effectively reduces the amount of solar heat absorbed by walls and roofs. Keeping spaces cool so you save up to 50% of cooling costs while protecting the environment.
REPELS DUST AND AIRBORNE DIRT
Airlite attracts water molecules in the air to create an invisible, protective film on the wall that blocks dust and dirt from attaching.
Moulds can cause allergies, itchiness, headaches, fatigue, cough, asthma, and other breathing problems. Airlite’s innovative technology blocks their growth helping to maintain a healthy environment.
Airlite eliminates odours without filters, deodorants, waste, or upkeep by actively breaking down odour molecules.
In a nutshell, using Airlite is like planting a forest inside and outside your home. Literally. Being 100% natural, VOC-free and water soluble, it has zero ‘nasties’ associated with other wall coverings and is activated by natural daylight. Applying it on a surface of 100 m2 reduces air pollution as effectively as an area of 100 m2 planted with mature trees. In short it eliminates air pollutants by up to 88.8%. But its benefits don’t just stop there. In addition, it also neutralises odours, repels dust and airborne dirt, cuts cooling costs by up to 50% and blocks the growth of mould and microbes. This revolutionary technology has many exciting, positive connotations for our world, our health and businesses. Imagine a world where we can live and work in healthy atmosphere AND stop damaging the environment. Airlite truly is an exciting, forward thinking, 21st Century pollution solution.
