CertainTeed AirRenew® Essential
Research indicates that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. Unfortunately, the air inside our homes is often more polluted than outside. That’s because today’s homes are built virtually airtight. While this makes our homes more energy efficient, it also traps harmful VOCs inside.
VOCs (volatile organic compounds) like formaldehyde and other aldehydes can come from a number of sources.
From the cleaning and beauty products that we use, to the carpets beneath our feet and the paint on our walls, our indoor air quality is affected by many factors. Quite alarmingly, poor indoor air quality has been linked to a number of health problems such as headaches, fatigue, concentration problems, allergies, asthma and more.
Luckily, AirRenew® Essential Indoor Air Quality Drywall actively removes formaldehyde from the air, protecting homeowners from harmful VOCs.
It’s the only drywall that improves air quality by capturing and converting formaldehyde into a safe, inert compound. AirRenew cleans indoor air for up to 75 years, even through water based acrylic or epoxy paint and breathable wallpaper. AirRenew Essential is a cost effective solution for applications where mold and moisture resistance is not required.
It is available in ½” regular or ⅝” Type X resistant gypsum. Easily recycled, in the same way as regular gypsum board, AirRenew can be sent to most landfills. It’s safe to humans, animals, and ground water. For added protection against moisture and mildew, choose CertainTeed’s AirRenew M2Tech® IAQ drywall.
