Airlite’s interior paint has been confirmed to have antivirus properties following independent tests conducted in the United Kingdom, Italy and China. The results show that surfaces painted with Airlite rendered a strain of Human Coronavirus inactive by over 99% after just 15 minutes. Airlite has also been tested against two further viruses: Influenza A virus H1N1 and Enterovirus71 (EN71).

In the earth’s atmosphere, sunlight slowly creates ions which are nature’s cleaners and air purifiers. Airlite’s patented paint massively accelerates this effect and enables light to perpetually create an ionised protective shield on and around the painted surface. When a virus comes into contact with this ionised shield, the hydroxide ions (OH-) aggressively steal a second hydrogen to return to water (H2O) from the lipid-protein layer of the virus. Without the lipid-protein layer, the virus harmlessly falls apart and is no longer infectious.

Testing Summary

Airlite Interior was tested at three universities in three countries on three different viruses to provide a thorough evaluation of its antivirus capabilities. The tests are based on the industry standard ISO 21702:2019.

United Kingdom Testing

Test conducted by Virology Research Services Ltd  against Human Coronavirus NL63 shows a reduction of the virus on the surface of more than up to 99% after only 15’. The test has been done by irradiating the sample treated with Airlite under UV-A for 1 hour before the test. This means that Airlite has the capability to work also for a period with no light if activated during the day with UV light.

Human Coronavirus NL6315 ′> 99%

Italy Testing

Test conducted by University la Sapienza of Rome influenza A virus subtype H1N1shows a reduction of the virus on the surface of more than up to 74% after only 60’. In addition, the cell viability analysis shows that surfaces painted with Airlite do not release components toxic to cells when in contact with aqueous solutions which means that the cells remain alive and the product works only on the virus cells.

China Testing

Test conducted by Guangdong Detection Centre of Microbiology di Guangzhou in China against influenza A virus subtype H1N and Enterovirus71 (EN71) shows a reduction of the virus on the surface of more than 99,9% after 4h. The test shows also that there is antiviral effect also without light.
