Lavastar Now Offer a Eco-friendly Signage Coating, Clean Air by Resysten
Lavastar is delighted to offer businesses across London & the South East the opportunity to provide clean air in the towns and cities where you display printed building wraps, hoardings, signage & building facades.
Capable of absorbing substantial amounts of air polluting gases when applied to printed materials designed to be displayed on any exterior surface, we believe that our exclusive Clean Air by Resysten antimicrobial protective coating is a game changer in the fight against air pollution.
Coating One 9m2 Banner With Clean Air by Resysten Will Cancel The Equivalent NOx Output Of One Car Per Day.
In London alone, the effects of air pollution claim up to 4,000 lives a year and in recent years there there have been growing concerns about the long term effects of air pollution on young children.
According to a report released by the European Environment Agency (EEA) air pollution kills more than 1,200 children and teenagers per year across Europe, and significantly increases the risk of disease later in life.
The nitrogen oxides that are most relevant for air pollution (NOx) are particularly problematic in high traffic urban areas such as town or city centres, and it is here where Clean Air can be so effective.
In real terms, an exterior surface area of just 9m2 coated with Clean Air will cancel out the equivalent NOx output of one car for one day.
When sprayed with Clean Air by Resysten, a 750m2 giant scaffold banner like the one shown below will, on an annual basis, neutralise the equivalent vehicle emissions produced by 12,000 average family car journeys per annum.
Clean Air By Resysten, A Coating That Absorbs NOx And Converts It Into Harmless Matter.
A unique formula binds and adheres titanium dioxide, the core ingredient of Clean Air, to any clean, printed, externally displayed, surface and keeps it in place and performing for up to 12 months.
Through a photocatalytic process, light hitting the titanium dioxide grabs water and oxygen from the air and splits them into tiny particles.
These particles then break down the harmful greenhouse gasses such as NOx and SO2 through a chemical reaction that ultimately dissolves them.
NOx is turned into nitrogen gas (N2), oxygen gas (O2), and nitrates whilst SO2 is transformed into sulfate ions (SO42−).
The resulting matter is harmless and will be dispersed by natural weather conditions such as wind, rain or snow.
Clean Air Coated Printed Signage Has Been Scientifically Proven To Reduce Air Pollution.
Following rigorous tests at the International Photocatalyst standards testing centre at Queen’s University in Belfast, Clean Air by Resysten was proven to comply with ISO standards 22197-1 after meeting six months of simulated weather, corrosion and chemical impact.
Not only does Clean Air anti-pollution coating technology remove NOx, it is also proven to remove dangerous substances like nitrogen oxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are significantly more harmful to health than CO2 emissions.
Clean Air Anti-Pollution Coating Technology Will Help Protect Future Generations.
Simply sprayed onto the surface of printed hoardings, signage, building wraps and facades to be displayed in town centres, built up areas, supermarket or shopping centre car parks or drive-through restaurants, materials coated in Clean Air are especially helpful near schools, where they can help address the effects of the school run.
Clean Air can even be sprayed onto glass.
Washing has no effect on the nano coating, so, even if the glass is cleaned once a month, the anti-pollution coating technology continues to combat the harmful effects of NOx and other associated pollutants.
And the benefits to the environment don’t stop after 12 months.
Printed materials such as hoardings, signage, building wraps and facades can be disposed of or recycled through normal established waste streams as the harmless waste matter is not absorbed into the surface.
We’re Here To Help You Create Customised, High-Impact, Eco-friendly Printed Signage.
Whatever your message, we will work with you, your designers or your creative agencies to make sure that it stands out outdoors via cost-effective, eco-friendly hoardings, signage, building wraps and facades.
Should you need them, we have an in-house graphic design team who can work from a blank canvas or with you to bring your own ideas to life.
If you’re a London or UK business and would like to know more about innovative clean air anti-pollution coating technology applied to building wraps, hoardings, signage and building facades, please get in touch and our expert team will be delighted to answer all aspects of your questions.
