Imagine if the walls of your home could act as a filter, cleaning the very air you breathe of pollutants and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
That's what CertainTeed Gypsum's new AirRenew gypsum board can do, by capturing the unhealthy formaldehyde and other aldehydes in the home's air and converting them into inert compounds trapped safely within the wallboard itself. What a fascinating way to improve the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) inside the home.
AirRenew has also been engineered to protect against moisture and mold and designed for fire resistance.
AirRenew is soon to be available across the U.S. and Canada. Although it is being initially marketed for commercial application (schools, hospitals, etc.), lets hope it makes its way quickly into the residential market. This is the type of product that any home would benefit from.
What a simple but wonderful product innovation! Now if it were just made out of fully recyclable materials... I work for McGraw Hill and this product is a big hit on our Sweets Network. It's a good place for interested builders to get a first look at the various types of gypsum board available.
