CertainTeed Gypsum: AirRenew®

AirRenew® Essential Drywall actively removes formaldehyde from the air, protecting homeowners from harmful VOCs. It’s the only drywall that improves air quality by capturing and converting formaldehyde into a safe, inert compound. AirRenew cleans indoor air for up to 75 years, even through paint and wallpaper.

The air inside homes is often more polluted than outside. That’s because today’s homes are built virtually airtight. This makes them more energy efficient, but also traps harmful VOCs inside. And since people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, it’s important that indoor air be as clean and healthy as possible.

AirRenew Essential is part of the AirRenew family of indoor air quality (IAQ) gypsum boards featuring industry-first VOC-scavenging technology. AirRenew Essential offers a cost-effective solution for healthier interior environments in residential construction and remodeling projects.

AirRenew Essential comes in a 1/2-inch gypsum board, and AirRenew Essential Type X, a 5/8-inch fire-resistant gypsum board. Through patent-pending technology, AirRenew Essential proactively captures VOCs, specifically formaldehyde and other aldehydes, and converts them into safe, inert compounds.
