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 hydrogen atoms, capturing them. Thanks to this reaction, hydroxyl radicals have the potential to inhibit the activity of pollutants, breaking them down and neutralising their unpleasant effects.

Effective on certain adhered viruses

An image showing that the odours and viruses adhered to the tablecloth of a restaurant that a man is cleaning are inhibited by the effect of nanoe™ X

nanoe™ X particles penetrate deep into fabrics to inhibit bacteria that adhere to chairs and to minimise odours. Continuous use of nanoe™ X can mitigate the deterioration of fabrics.

Effective on adhered viruses

nanoe™ X is effective not only against certain airborne viruses, but also certain viruses attached to things you often touch, such as doorknobs, tables, and chairs.


An image showing that maintenance is not required for the nanoe™ X generator since it is made of titanium

The nanoe™ X generator requires no maintenance as its atomisation electrode is enveloped in water during its generation process and it is made of titanium. The nanoe™ X Generator makes it easier to keep your business environment clean.

Safety of nanoe™ X is confirmed

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.
