A while back I saw an advert on the television about plants that clean the air in a certain private hospital chain. I used to ask myself what home makers used to clean their air outside of the centralised air-conditioning units that they have installed.
I then came across the Saint-Gobain Gyproc Activ’ Air plasterboard. Get this it’s a plaster board that cleans the air of VOC’s(Volatile Organic Compounds) these are emitted as gases from solid or liquid, they include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have a short and long term side effects. VOC’s are commonly found in Paints, cleaning detergents, furniture, smoke, carpet fibers and office equipment such as printers and copiers.
Activ’ Air’s technology takes the VOCs and converts them in to safe, inert compounds which, once captured in the board, cannot be released back into the air. It is a passive system that works without anyone knowing it’s there. Several tests conducted on the product have proven that even after multiple renovations, the board continues to clean the air for 75 years, providing peace of mind for generations.
The new Activ’ Air plasterboards with air purifying technology offers the ideal way to absorb all impurities and reduce overall health risks. It removes 100% of aldehydes and almost completely removes any other pollutants, which occur in the form of VOCs.
How do you clean your air at this point in time?
