F J Benjamin Holdings (FJB) has announced that the Airfree P150 Air Purifier, under their distribution, had been tested and certified to be effective in deactivate the aerosolized SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19.

The certification by MRIGlobal, a leading American non-profit research organisation, last month followed scientific tests conducted on the Airfree P150 Air Purifier which proved to be able to deactivate 80.5% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus when released into a controlled chamber.

Daniel Matias, Global Sales Officer said: “The Airfree’s proprietary TSSTM (Thermo-dynamic Sterilisation System) technology which heats up to a temperature of 200 degrees Centigrade was created to silently draw bacteria, viruses, and other organic organisms into the ceramic core heated ducts to be destroyed by heat purifying the room, not by just capturing without destroying, and most importantly without any filters to replace. This is a huge saving to the consumer and the environment. This also helps avoid hazardous air filter replacement, which could put the captured organisms back into the environment.”

Airfree was founded by Carlos Matias, who developed its patented air purification system to help deal with his son’s recurrent allergic crises. The manufacturing of Airfree products is carried out in Portugal, and the products are distributed in more than 60 countries around the world.

Airfree is sold under the newly set-up Health and Wellness division of FJB in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The Airfree’s range of purifiers can be bought online at cleanair.fjbenjamin.com.my and Lazada at www.lazada.com.my/airfree/, with prices range from RM649 to RM1,990. The products are also available at retailers such as Baby Invasion, Monstersbaby, Cuddly Bear Baby Shop, First Few Years, Happikiddo and Jumping Baby Jacks.
