nanoe™ X—
technology with the benefits of hydroxyl radicals

Abundant in nature, hydroxyl radicals have the capacity to inhibit pollutants. nanoe™ X technology can bring these incredible benefits indoors, helping keep hard surfaces, soft furnishings and the whole indoor environment clean, and making it a more pleasant place to be.

An illustration showing the structure of hydroxyl radicals that are the source of nanoe™ X effects. The fact that a huge volume of hydroxyl radicals contained in water is generated is key.

A key point is that hydroxyl radicals, produced by nanoe™ X technology, are contained in water.

A: Hydroxyl radicals
B: Electrostatic
C: Contained in water (H2O)

A naturally occurring process

Hydroxyl radicals are unstable molecules that readily react with elements like hydrogen, capturing them. Thanks to this reaction, hydroxyl radicals have the potential to inhibit the activity of pollutants, breaking them down and counteracting their unpleasant effects.

Thanks to the characteristics of nanoe™ X, viruses can be inhibited.

It is effective not only against airborne viruses, but also viruses attached to things you often touch, such as doorknobs, remote controls, and even the fabric of sofas and carpets.

nanoe™ X reduces allergen risk for children.

Your body is cleaned by breathing.
Your home can be cleaned by nanoe™ X.

Human beings produce hydroxyl radicals in our bodies through the respiration process, and take advantage of their pollutant-inhibiting characteristics to clean the inside of our bodies. nanoe™ X generates 4.8 trillion hydroxyl radicals contained in water per second, which is just one 500 thousandth of what human beings produce.

nanoe™ X is nano-sized electrostatic atomised water particles. Made from water, it is natural. Safety tests are verified as below.
