After years of research and development, Massimo Bernardoni, founder of AM Technology, creates the first prototype of Airlite in 2007.
Airlite is an innovative mineral-based technology that, applied like a normal paint, is used for the first time in a real environment inside the Umberto I Tunnel in Rome, which in that year was one of the most polluted in the capital.
After more than 10 years, the Tunnel is still white , without any maintenance, and tests by the La Sapienza University have shown a reduction of pollutants inside the tunnel by up to 51%.
Today, thanks to recent laboratory tests, the anti-microbial and antibacterial properties of Airlite paint, a powerful virucidal effect has been added that acts in just 15 minutes.
How Airlite works
Designed to take care of people inside and outside homes, workplaces, and leisure, Airlite is a technology inserted inside a 100% mineral paint capable of purifying the air in a completely natural way.
Airlite products have a VOC value of less than 0.1 grams per litre, the lowest value in the world among all paints on the market. For this reason, and due to the absence of glues, solvents and other chemical products in its formulation, Airlite is completely odourless and does not require the need to ventilate the rooms after its application.
Thanks to its completely mineral composition and free from petroleum products, Airlite is also anti-flammable, once applied on any surface, thanks to the energy of light, Airlite eliminates the main pollutants present in the air (including NOx, nitrogen oxides harmful to human health) and prevents the growth of bacteria, moulds and spores that they cause respiratory diseases, even serious ones, eliminating bad smells and preventing dirt from settling on the walls.
How Airlite is activated
Airlite acts in the presence of light by activating a photocatalysis process on the surfaces where it is applied. By creating a concentration of electrons, they interact with the water and oxygen present in the air to generate negative ions of the oxidizing radicals, which, when combined with pollutants, are transformed into molecules of various types of salts. Invisible and harmless salts that are fixed on the walls where Airlite is applied.
When applied to external surfaces, Airlite paint reflects the warm component of sunlight , keeping the interior cool and thus helping to reduce energy consumption and the generation of CO2 responsible for the greenhouse effect.
To purify the air, Airlite uses the same mechanism that occurs in nature: just as after a storm where natural electricity generates ions capable of cleaning the air, Airlite’s ecological paint naturally generates negative ions on the surface where it is applied, creating a habitat where no polluting or toxic substances for human health develop.
All Airlite properties
Thanks to its patented technology it has been confirmed by laboratory tests that Airlite:
- After just 15 minutes from its application on any type of surface, it deactivates viruses such as the Human Coronavirus NL63 up to 99%. The negative ions produced by the action of Airlite are able to disintegrate the lipid-protein layer of most viruses, resulting in a total deactivation of the viral load.
- Reduces the air pollution(inside and outside) by‘ 88% , thus having the same effect as a forest of tall trees. 100 square meters of Airlite eliminate the same pollution as 100 square meters of forest.
- Eliminates up to9% bacteria, moulds and spores, making every environment healthier and cleaner.
- It eliminates all bad smells and prevents dirt from settling on the walls, making the environments in which we live more welcoming and comfortable.
- EliminatesVOCs (volatile organic compounds) present in the air by degrading the organic molecules that make up these substances and transforming them into inert substances that are not dangerous for health.
- It reflects the hot component of sunlight: if applied in exterior, summer Airlite keeps fresh environments in a natural way and allows you to save electricity up to 30%, helping to reduce CO2 emissions that cause the greenhouse effect.
- It is guaranteed for 10 years.
Thanks to its certified effectiveness, Airlite is able to create healthy and sustainable environments for the well-being of people and the environment in which we live.
