Breakdown/inhibition of hazardous
substances1 found in PM 2.5

Breakdown effects of harmful substances such as aromatic acid (benzoic acid), paraffin (hexadecane) has been verified.1



What are hazardous substances?

PM 2.5 particles include a variety of hazardous substances with sources that are unlikely to be eliminated.


[PM 2.5 Generation routes]
For these reasons, it can be said that we are constantly exposed to risks from various hazardous substances.

Generation route 1
Direct emission

Generation route 2
Chemical reactions make particles​

Hazardous substances fall to the ground due to weather conditions

A: Gaseous substances
B: Also enter rooms




Are they breathing truly fresh air?

In today’s urban environments, quality indoor air is a precious commodity. nanoe™ X helps keep the air indoors fresher and cleaner, breaking down airborne PM 2.5 to support the health of your loved ones.

How nanoe™ X works

nanoe™ X reaches hazardous substance​.​

Hydroxyl radicals denature hazardous substance.​​

Hazardous substance is inhibited.1


1Testing organisation: Panasonic Product Analysis Center. Testing method: measured the amount of adhered organic substances in an approximately 23m3-sized test chamber. Inhibition method: nanoe™ released. Test results: Aromatic carboxylic acid (benzoic acid) broken down at least 99% in approximately 8 hours; (Y17NF096) Paraffin (hexadecane) broken down at least 99% in approximately 16 hours. (Y17NF089)

Results may vary based on usage, and seasonal and environmental variables (temperature and humidity). nanoe™ X and nanoe™ inhibit activity or growth of pollutants, but do not prevent illness.
