Clean Up Indoor Air with Air Purifying Paints

ECOS 03/05/2024

Did you know that people in the U.S. spend about 90 percent of their time indoors? Even more surprising is the fact that even in the smoggiest urban areas, indoor levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times – and occasionally more than 100 times – higher than outdoor pollutant levels. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health.

What's making the air in our homes and offices so toxic? VOCs from the buildings themselves, as well as from all the products we bring inside. The EPA lists everything from appliances and furnishings to cleaning and personal care products. "Some sources, such as building materials, furnishings, and household products like air fresheners, release pollutants more or less continuously," they say. "Other sources, related to activities carried out in the home, release pollutants intermittently. These include smoking, the use of unvented or malfunctioning stoves, furnaces, or space heaters, the use of solvents in cleaning and hobby activities, the use of paint strippers in redecorating activities, and the use of cleaning products and pesticides in house-keeping. High pollutant concentrations can remain in the air for long periods after some of these activities."

Protect your health by cleaning up indoor air! Ridding your home of VOCs mainly comes down to choosing safer products, but since the buildings and furnishings themselves are silently releasing toxics (and few of us can start over from scratch), many people opt for air purifiers. We have a solution that's even easier, more effective, and more eco-friendly. ECOS Air Pure Paints that actually absorb indoor air impurities! Now you can turn every wall in your home into a giant filter, each one removing toxic chemicals from the air that you breathe.

ECOS Paints’ unique VOC and odor absorbing paints are a revolutionary solution to many of our indoor air quality problems. Molecular sieves permanently capture a wide range of toxic chemicals commonly found in homes and other buildings. Here are the five types of air purifying finishes we currently offer:

  • Atmosphere Purifying Paints– A unique technology combining the purity of the world’s leading organic paint with a surface filtration capability engineered to remove harmful indoor air pollutants. Simply apply as normal wall paint and, when dry, it will filter out and absorb pollutants 24 hours a day, all year round. ECOS Atmosphere Purifying Paint (APP) absorbs 98-99% of volatile pollutants - down to approximately one part per million (gas chromatographic data). This air cleaner effect lasts for years and, unlike a traditional air cleaner unit, it requires no power supply, maintenance or filters.
  • Interior Passivating Primer - This revolutionary addition to our Air Pure range neutralizes solvents and VOCs coming from previously painted surfaces, by trapping the offending gasses.
  • MDF Passivating Primer– Traps harmful contaminants in medium density fiber board, plywood and particle board before they can reach the air.
  • EMR Shielding Paint– A permanent wall treatment using a proprietary Nickel additive which has been independently tested to provide up to 98% protection against microwave energy at 900MHz and 1800 MHz.
  • Anti-Formaldehyde Radiator Paint - A formaldehyde-absorbing primer/finish for hot water radiators.
