New Clean Air Paint

Sigma Air Pure is a bio-based wall paint with an air purification effect. The paint enhances the indoor air climate of homes, offices and schools by removing up to 70% of the harmful formaldehyde from the indoor air. The paint filters the formaldehyde molecules out of the indoor air and neutralizes them.

The innovative product reportedly cleans the air we breathe

Tailormade collaboration

The resin is one of the key components that determine the characteristics of a paint. By using the Decovery resin technology platform DSM and PPG developed a new resin, which met the specific needs that PPG had envisioned for Sigma Air Pure.

With the Decovery bio-based resin technology platform, DSM enables paint manufacturers to develop high performance sustainable paints. By using a variety of renewable ingredients, DSM can tailor each solution to specific customer and market needs. With Sigma Air Pure paint, the professional – and consumer market embraces renewable bio-based resins for indoor paints.

Renewable resources

The Decovery resins are made from renewable resources such as sugars, natural oils, and starch from corn and agricultural waste. These natural materials replace for a large part the fossil ingredients that traditionally constitute the binder resin of both solventborne and waterborne paints. DSM’s Decovery platform offers sustainable alternatives for conventional paint resins without compromising on quality and performance. In addition, since Decovery resins are low in VOCs and use innocuous ingredients, paint made with such resins provide a safer and healthier environment.
