Did you know that indoor air can be 5 times more polluted than outdoor air?
When you think of air pollution, outdoor smoke contamination by vehicles and factories is what inevitably comes to mind. But did you know that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air? The most common indoor air pollutant, found in all residential units and buildings, is formaldehyde – a common industrial chemical and VOC (Volatile Organic Compound), often found in such everyday products as wood furniture, disinfectant, glue and insulation material. These products release it over time as a colourless gas, contaminating indoor air without our knowledge. Therefore, formaldehyde is always present – and can last years.
New rooms with pressed-wood furniture and/or carpets are likely to have higher formaldehyde levels, and the gas accumulates very quickly if ventilation is poor. Since formaldehyde fumes are carcinogenic, and many people experience nasal/throat/eye irritation if it is present in too high a concentration, steps need to be taken to ensure clean indoor air.
With this in mind, Nippon Paint Odour-less AirCare, one of the most advanced innovations to improve indoor air quality till date, was developed with Anti-Formaldehyde and Active Carbon Technology. Nippon Paint Odour-less AirCare is an anti-formaldehyde interior emulsion that helps create a safer and more hygienic indoor environment. This breakthrough product contains Anti-Formaldehyde with Active Carbon Technology that continuously absorbs harmful formaldehyde from the air and converts into water vapour, resulting in clean fresh air. Besides having ultra low VOC, this environment friendly paint is anti-bacterial & possesses superior wash-ability.
Active Carbon Technology – How it works
Also it does not contain lead and mercury. It is ideal for people who are allergic to formaldehyde and paint odour. Hence it is recommended to be used in eco-sensitive commercial and residential areas such as hospitals, schools, hotels and homes.
