AiR8 is not a masking agent, but acts through three mechanisms to permanently remove emissions and odor.

AiR8 solutions consist of complex formulations representing a variety of chemical compounds offering different functionalities, both structural and chemical.

The technology behind AiR8 was initiated over 25 years ago. The scientist (who was eventually credited with the invention of AiR8) became fascinated when he observed that when terpenes were diffused into the environment, emissions and odors were reduced.

Inspired by this finding, further evidence showed that the odors were not just masked but permanently removed. The result was a set of specialized formulations that neutralize a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic odor problems — effectively, efficiently and permanently.

AiR8 formulations have been scientifically engineered to be environmentally safe. Manufactured under strict quality controls, the components of AiR8 are generally recognized as common in the food industry and have a long history of safety.

Terpenes are widespread in nature, mainly in plants as constituents of essential oils. Many terpenes are hydrocarbons, but oxygen-containing compounds such as alcohols, aldehydes or ketones (terpenoids) are also found. Their building block is the hydrocarbon isoprene, CH2=C(CH3)-CH=CH2*.

Terpene Characteristics

  • Terpenes have anti-bacterial, antifungal and anti-septic properties.
  • Terpenes have oxygenating properties (increases oxygen level).
  • When diffused into the environment, terpenes have been found to reduce airborne chemicals and bacteria.
  • Terpene characteristics appear to either destroy the odor molecule or convert it to a more acceptable level.
