THE NEED FOR AIR PURIFYING FABRIC
Indoor air hygiene has been a major growing concern with increasing risk of human health hazard, leading to a host of ailments from respiratory problems to even cancer.
Indoor air contains odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are released from household furnishings like carpets, window shades, wall coverings, rubber floorings, chemicals, (e.g. formaldehyde) or outdoor pollutants like smog.
Natural inspiration: Nature uses sunlight as a source of energy to drive chemical reactions (e.g. photosynthesis)
Innovation: A textile surface that interacts with outdoor light sources (sun) to react with and destroy air pollutant compounds (VOCs).
Consumer Benefit: Indoor textiles (eg.curtains, sofas, rugs) become surfaces that help to improve indoor air quality
HOW DOES AEROFRESH WORK?
AeroFresh by D’Decor fabrics are treated with HeiQ Fresh during the final stage of the textile manufacturing process to turns the textile surface into an air purifying surface with the help of UV light.
Indoor air pollution
Indoor air contains odors and volatile organic compound (VOCs) that are released from household furnishings (eg.formaldehyde) or outdoor pollutants
A textile surface treatment based on 2 functional microparticles:
- Function 1: Permanent immobilization of VOC molecules from the air
- Function 2: Use natural light to decompose the VOC
Air quality improvement
Treated textiles on indoor furnishings (eg.curtain,sofas,rugs) are capable of immobilization and decomposing VOCs from the air
Indoor textiles treated with HeiQ FreshTM teachnology play an important role in helping to sanitize the door air.
HOW IS THIS TESTED?
Three test standards are used to evaluate functional properties of the treated fabrics:
|A||Blue dye staintest||ISO10678
|Photocatalytic decomposition of visible dye||Blue stain disappears after 300 sec under light|
|B||VOC adsorption test||ISO17299-2
|VOC compound immobilization on textiles||>20% reduction|
|C||Air purification (acetaldehyde)||ISO22197-2
|Photocatalytic performance (Acetaldehyde)||>20% reduction|
