Airlite Sunlight Exterior


Airlite Sunlight Exterior is a mineral paint for outdoor use, inorganic and highly breathable. Available in white and various colours, it comes in the form of powder to be diluted with water and guarantees excellent coverage and a long life. Airlite technology is recommended by the Ministerial Decree of the Ministry of the Environment of 1 April 2004, “Guidelines for the use of innovative systems in environmental impact assessments (Official Gazette no. 84 of 9 April 2004) – Innovative systems and technologies for the mitigation and abatement of environmental pollution”. Airlite Sunlight Exterior is Cradle to Cradle Certified™, Silver level.

Cradle to Cradle Certified™ products are evaluated taking into account the hazardousness of the materials that make up the product, the reuse of materials, the use of renewable energy and the management of greenhouse gas emissions, water management and social equity.

 Airlite Sunlight Exterior uses a set of patented technologies to reduce air pollutants. Thanks to its extraordinary durability and self-cleaning effect, it keeps the infrastructure in better condition for longer periods, reducing repainting and maintenance work. Effective against the disruptive action of water, acid rain and smog, it maintains a high level of breathability and has, moreover, a high reflecting power that prevents excessive heat transfer to the buildings, guaranteeing cooler indoor environments and allowing electricity savings for air conditioning by up to 29%. It is activated in the presence of light and maintains its effectiveness over time, without reducing its performance. It guarantees excellent aesthetics and a finely velvety natural finish with the application of one coat of Airlite Primer in the same colour and one coat of Airlite Sunlight Exterior, reducing the application time. The paint, thanks to its special inorganic composition is in class A2-s1, d0 according to the results of the reaction to fire tests (UNI EN 13501-1:2009).


The product is also VOC-free: the white product ready to use has a VOC content less than 0.1 g / l, more than 300 times lower than the limits set by European legislation (EU Directive 2004/42/EC). Airlite is LEED, WELL and BREEAM compliant: Airlite products can contribute to obtaining points for LEED, WELL and BREEAM certification of buildings.
