Warm air hand dryer can incorporate anti-mosquito technology
Veltia has launched a new 'Anti-mosquito accessory' for its warm air hand dryers, which repels insects while also releasing a pleasant fragrance that adds to the ZeroSmell component of the company's ZeroSmell Hand Dryer V7 dryers.
The Anti-mosquito accessory is an innovative, 100% natural product that uses natural extract of Citronella of Java in a patented polymerisation process based on years of research. It allows the active component to be released steadily and consistently, thus giving it a longer life.
The new Anti-mosquito component is presented in two different formats, allowing use inside the dryer or as an external element as an air freshener. Both versions maintain Citronella as an active component, driving away mosquitoes and other insects and helping to keep the environment insect-free environment and smelling fresh.
The products used in both applications are totally natural, classified by US Environmental Protection Agency as minimal risk to wildlife and fish. The EPA has also qualified the technology as non-toxic, unlike some similar products that combine Citronella with other components deemed to be harmful to health. The polymer that makes up the external part of the Veltia accessory is based on primarily natural products that have low chemical reactivity and toxicity.
