PURETi Treatment Transforms Stone Façades into Air Purifiers
Neolith by TheSize has formed a new partnership with Pureti, a leading manufacturer of water-based photocatalytic preventative maintenance solutions, to offer architects and designers a sustainable architectural surface treatment for exterior façades.
The eco-friendly Pureti surface treatment is now available for use on Neolith’s 6mm slabs, transforming the sintered stone façades into self-cleaning air purifiers, dramatically improving air quality and enabling the Neolith slabs to stay cleaner for longer. This technology has the ability to reduce air pollution by destroying nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that contact the treated surface, using just the energy from sunlight.
“We’re always looking for ways to advance the technical characteristics and designs of our surfacing products to exceed the needs of home and building owners, now and in the future,” said Jacco Jurrisen, head of research and development at TheSize. “Coupling our already low-maintenance sintered stone slabs with PURETi was an easy marriage that will add another dimension to architectural and design projects. It increases building sustainability and eliminates the headache of pollution maintenance as urban development continues to grow worldwide.”
Every square meter of Neolith surface treated with Pureti has the capacity to remove the emissions of a car driving 16,000 km per year from circulation, while providing the same ecological air quality benefits that a medium size tree by reducing nitrogen levels by up to 80%. Pureti is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and contributes to LEED points.
