Specify PURETi™ Air Purifying Coatings To Improve UK Workplace Air Quality
If you want healthy and happy employees, you need to clear the air!
Most of us spend around 90% of our lives indoors.
The average person spends 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime!
You may be aware of the effects of outdoor pollution!
Do you know that harmful contaminants can be up to 10 times more concentrated indoors than outside.
The health implications are major!
They range from causing eye, nose, and throat irritation and fatigue to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.
Within workplaces, poor air quality has been shown to negatively impact staff health and well-being and reduce productivity.
Royal College of Physicians Report
The Royal College of Physicians estimated in 2016 that air pollution caused over 6 million sick days per year. A total social cost of £22.6 billion in the UK.
Indoor Air Pollution
Indoor air pollution comes from several sources that release gases or particles into the air.
These include certain building materials, heating systems, household cleaners and solvents containing acids, VOCs, lye, bleach, and other toxic chemicals.
Damp, mould, unvented cookstoves, tobaccos smoke, and artificial fragrances are also causes.
PURETi Clean & Fresh and PURETi Clear are sustainable health-enhancing innovations.
They improve indoor air quality by oxidizing harmful organic particles, including VOCs, making the air cleaner and safer.
Pureti can be a useful tool to reduce VOCs in indoor environments.
VOCs are a group of organic chemicals that are commonly found in many products, such as paints, adhesives, cleaning agents, and building materials. Exposure to high levels of VOCs can lead to various health problems, including respiratory irritation, headaches, dizziness, and in some cases, even cancer.
By using Pureti to treat surfaces that are likely to come into contact with VOCs, such as walls, floors, and furniture, you can help to reduce the levels of these harmful chemicals in your indoor environment.
Applying Pureti Clear to commercial interior windows is a great way to ensure the power of sunlight keeps on working to remove VOCs and other pollutants in working spaces to the benefit of all of the occupants daily.
Pureti can also be used on outdoor surfaces
such as building facades and paved areas
to help improve air quality in urban areas.
Compared to other methods of VOC reduction, such as
ventilation and air purification,
Pureti offers several advantages:
It is a passive technology that does not require electricity, or
additional maintenance once applied to a surface.
It also has a long lifespan, and can continue to
break down VOCs for years after it has been applied.
Pureti should be used in a combination with other strategies to manage indoor air quality and reduce exposure to VOCs. Ideally it should not be relied upon as the sole means of VOC control as a it relies on sunlight or UV light which is not always available at night time.

Air pollution affects us all.
It is associated with impacts on lung development in children, heart disease, stroke, cancer, exacerbation of asthma and increased mortality, among other health effects.
Except for air pollution in our own homes, we have little control as individuals over the level of pollution that we and our families breathe – this must be seen as a societal problem to solve.
Outdoor air quality in this country has improved significantly since the 1980s. We can and should go further to reduce air pollution – and it is technically possible to do so.
Government, many industries, and sectors have a part to play in the solutions.
The report highlights achievable solutions across different sectors and makes the case that we need to continue to be active in reducing outdoor air pollution.
The path to better outdoor air quality is clear.
However, indoor air pollution is becoming an increasing proportion of the problem as improvements in outdoor air pollution occur.
We need a better understanding of how we can prevent and reduce indoor air pollution.
