Airlite - Purelight Air Purifying paint for interiors is a ground breaking development in paint manufacture. It is an inorganic white mineral paint developed to reduce air pollution in buildings.
The paint works with sunlight (or natural light bulbs) to neutralise air pollutants by transforming them into harmless mineral salts in a 100% natural way. Odour molecules are naturally broken down. Moulds and Bacteria are reduced on the surface and pollutants such as nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide are neutralised.
Airllite paint effectively turns your walls into a natural air purifier. A single 1m2 of wall painted with Airlite Purelight will clean the air as effectively as a large mature tree.
Airlite Purelight is available in white as standard and also in numerous colours. Provided in a powder form, it has to be mixed with water before application guaranteeing perfect coverage and a long-lasting effect.
Drying time: Once mixed the paint must be applied within 3 hours (indicative value, actual time window will depend on environmental conditions).
Approx coverage: 10-12m² per kg
Please note: It is necessary to treat surfaces with the Airlite Primer prior to application of the Purelight paint. The Application of Airlite paints is slightly different to other interior paints. Airlite Purelight is supplied in powder form, the powder needs to be accurately mixed with water and then it needs to be applied within 3 hours of mixing.
Indoor air quality
The average person spends over 80% of their time indoors, yet more often than not indoor air quality is many times worse than it is outdoors. Pollutants from outside find their way into our homes and get trapped. Traditional paints, furniture household hygiene products and other VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) then add to the air pollution which we then breathe in. Airlite Paint is a great way to reduce these pollutants, making your home a safer place to live.
The technology of Airlite is recommended by the Italian Ministry of Environment via Article (G.U. n. 84 – 9 April 2004) – Innovative Systems and Technologies for the mitigation and removal of environmental pollution.
Airlite reduces odours without filters, deodorants, waste, or upkeep by actively breaking down odour molecules.
In a world of superbacteria and constantly-evolving microbes, Airlite keeps our indoor environments healthier and cleaner.
Thanks to the combination of light activation and natural alkaline properties, Airlite stops moulds from developing on walls and ceilings, creating a healthier and safer environment.
Repels dust and airborne dirt
Airlite attracts water molecules in the air to create an invisible, protective film on the wall that blocks dirt and dust from attaching.
Reduces air pollution
Made with natural materials, Airlite reduces pollutants like nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide, returning air to a purer and more pristine state.

Wood Trim, Skirting Boards and Doors
The Airlite System currently don't include a paint for wood. You can paint indoor wood in an Eggshell paint. See the Earthborn Eggshell 17 page for details.
You can of course paint ceilings with the Airlite Purelight Air Purifying Interior Paint too which works with sunlight (or sunlight/daylight bulbs) to neutralise noxious gases and odours in the room.
