It’s one thing for a wallcovering to be free of harmful chemicals like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), but what if it helped clean them up too? Old buildings with nasty chemical contaminants may have a new lease on life, thanks to Bluecher’s high-tech new Saratech Permasorb wallpaper.
Instead of removing contaminated structures altogether or locking pollutants in place with a sealant, Permasorb actually filters and absorbs harmful substances like pesticides or radon. Developed in Germany by the Bluecher Group, Permasorb wallpaper contains thousands of tiny absorbent carbon spheres which are embedded within the sheet.
When applied to a wall, Permasorb draws concentrated pollutants into the absorbers, where they are safely trapped instead of passing into the air. By safely removing pollutants in place, Permasorb eliminates the cost and delays of demolition and rebuilding.
