Nanomatrix Materials, a Jaipur based startup that manufactures disruptive graphene nanotechnology and integrate it into smarter application, has recently introduced a new product range of G1 AC Filters for Air Conditioners using Graphene-silver nanotechnology which purifies in room air including sterilizing 99% airborne microbes along with filtration of dust particles, also capable to reduce harmful VOC/gases. This product will convert conventional air conditioner into air purifier.

In these recent times we have seen that first wave of SARS COVID-19 pandemic hitting the population in India, the second wave has proved to be an ominous report. With the development of new variants, COVID-19 has become a baffling situation with the rise of its derivatives, i.e Mucormycosis or black fungus complication caused by fungal infection. People catch mucormycosis by coming in contact with the fungal spores in the environment. These airborne widespread and prevalent diseases can only be controlled with sincere atmospheric precautions inside as well as outside the homes. As per the WHO guidelines, wearing masks and proper sanitisation can prevent the virus entering into our systems.

G1 wonder Air Conditioner Filters are in itself a breakthrough in air filtration domain as these filters will not just protect you from dust and pollution but will actively destroy airborne viruses & bacteria while purifying the air by removing VOCs. This newly launched air filter has a layer of NM graphene membrane which uses Graphene-Silver nanotechnology to protect you from viruses by killing them along with filtration of certain harmful gases. Graphene filters also prohibit the growth of number of microorganisms including fungus. The filter removes PM 2.5 and above particles from the air with the efficiency of more than 99%, also proven to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde (which secretes from the wooden furniture in most households), benzene etc. VOCs are a large group of chemicals that are found in different products used in our daily lives like cosmetics, fuel, gasoline, air fresheners, cleaning products, or used at home in building materials like paints, varnishes etc.

VOCs have harmful effects on health and once released in the air, they hamper the air quality thus making it unfit for breathing and may lead to breathing problems, and these air purifiers are specifically designed for VOC reduction. Particulate matter (PM) are micro particles of solids suspended in the air, they could be coarse or fine and are released from numerous sources, including dust and other small particles from construction. Acute exposure to particulate matter may lead to serious cardiovascular and respiratory diseases and that’s why this technology shall be taken into consideration during pandemic situations when airborne diseases are giving rise to different variants and their derivatives.

This technology can be used in any existing centralized HVAC system, AHUs or FCUs for crowded place like airports, malls, schools, hospitals where there is higher risk of contamination. The installation of these G1 AC filters is very easy and splendid. You have to clean your (screen) plastic mesh provided in the AC, then place G1 AC Filters vertically onto the centre of the screen allowing gap on each side, cut if extra. Then re-install the mesh screen with G1 AC filter back on the AC. These are the only filters that can be reused after washing. Replace G1 AC filters when they get clogged and/or there is a drop in the air flow.

Speaking on the occasion of the launch, Nanomatrix Materials founder Vikas Bardiya said, “After studying about the covid-19 virus and other communicable diseases caused due to microorganisms, we can briefly conclude Graphene is the shield for most airborne pathogens. In most cases, indoor air quality index is more disturbing than outside, due to closed or poor ventilation. After the successful launch of our G1 Wonder Masks which are for personal use, now G1 AC Filters is another addition to our 3600 protection drive that protects your surroundings. Graphene-silver nanotechnology membrane inside developed by Nanomatrix Materials is proven to destroy airborne diseases causing virus &bacteria’s along with filtering harmful gases and VOCs present in the atmosphere. This costs 10x cheaper than air purifiers and provides you protection on the go. G1 AC Filters has gone through the tests from the independent certified laboratories before getting launched in the market.”
