Electro-chemicals specialist, Electrolube has selected the Southern Manufacturing event to officially announce the first completely safe and environmentally-friendly active carbon-based air duster, Airduster 'Zero'. The groundbreaking new product is set to redefine contamination removal from electronic equipment and is the first active, carbon-based air duster that offers complete safety for both the user and the environment. The word 'Zero' in the product name is not used lightly; Airduster 'Zero' features ’zero’ flammability, ‘zero’ toxicity, ‘zero’ odour and ‘zero’ risk of combustion. It also contributes ‘zero’ to the world's rising CO2 levels and presents ‘zero’ limitations with regard to can orientation.

Electrolube's Airduster 'Zero' is designed for the safe removal of dust and airborne contamination from very delicate or inaccessible areas of electrical and electronic equipment. It is an entirely eco-friendly, odourless and non-flammable product that delivers a consistent blast of gas with variable control. Airduster 'Zero' is also invertible, which is particularly useful for very intricate equipment or items, which cannot be moved for cleaning or maintenance.

Ron Jakeman, Group Managing Director of Electrolube, said, "As a global organisation, we are whole-heartedly committed to developing high performance electro-chemical solutions with the utmost care to the environment and the operator. The launch of the entirely safe and environmentally friendly Airduster ‘Zero’ is a fantastic achievement for the company and we are very excited about it’s impact on the market. With significant investment in R&D, together with receiving the ISO 14001 standard for our Environmental Management System, we are a trusted solutions provider and will continue to develop innovative and environmentally responsible new products for the industries we serve to meet all of their specialist chemical requirements."

With the phasing out of HFCs and greater pressure on VOC reduction, Electrolube’s Airduster 'Zero' provides a highly effective alternative for conventional air duster applications that release global warming gases into the environment. The active carbon formula utilises the in-built properties of an activated carbon absorbent and its propensity for gas storage. As an alternative to traditional aerosol propellants such as hydrocarbons and HFCs the completely non toxic Airduster 'Zero' offers a number of environmental and health and safety advantages, such as no reduction in indoor air quality.

Visitors to the Southern Manufacturing event will get a first look at the breakthrough Airduster ‘Zero’ on stand L8 at the Southern Manufacturing show, which takes place at FIVE, Farnborough from the 10th to the 12th February 2015. The company will also be showcasing two new protective and decorative polyurethane resins that will be of particular interest to LED lighting manufacturers, and will also present its AFA aromatic-free acrylic conformal coating, formulated without the use of hazardous aromatic solvents such as toluene and xylene.
