AF International Launches a ‘Worlds First’ Air-duster Technology at Paperworld

Posted on 30 January 2015 |

Computer and office equipment cleaning product specialist, AF International has selected the Paperworld Germany event to officially announce the first completely safe and environmentally-friendly active carbon-based air duster, Sprayduster ZeroTM. The groundbreaking new product is set to redefine contamination removal from electronic equipment within the office products and IT industry 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; Sprayduster ZeroTM 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.

AF’s Sprayduster ZeroTM is designed for the safe removal of dust, dirt deposits and airborne contamination from very delicate or inaccessible areas of electrical and electronic equipment. Used in the industry for equipment such as keyboards, printers and camera lenses it is an entirely eco-friendly, odourless and non-flammable product that delivers a consistent blast of gas with variable control. Sprayduster ZeroTM is also invertible, which is particularly useful for intricate equipment or items, which cannot be moved for cleaning for maintenance.

AF International win Supplier of the Year

Ron Jakeman, Group Managing Director of AF International, said, "As a global organisation, we are committed to developing high performance solutions with the utmost care to the environment and the user. The launch of Sprayduster ZeroTM which is entirely safe and environmentally friendly is a fantastic achievement and we are very excited about its impact on the market for brand and private label. 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.“

With the phasing out of HFCs and greater pressure on VOC reduction, AF’s Sprayduster ZeroTM provides a highly effective alternative for conventional air duster applications that release global warming gases into the environment. The active carbon formula uses the in-built properties of an activated carbon absorbent and its ability for gas storage. As an alternative to traditional aerosol propellants such as hydrocarbons and HFCs the completely non toxic Sprayduster ZeroTM offers health and safety and environmental advantages.

Visitors to the Paperworld event will get a first look at the breakthrough Sprayduster ZeroTM in hall 3.0 stand E55, which takes place at Mess Frankfurt, Germany from the 31st January to 3rd February 2015. The company will also display a full range of products for cleaning and maintaining all office equipment.
