Can our filters be as clean as the air they release?

WE LOVE:

  • The fresh and pure air in our cars and homes

BUT DID YOU KNOW:

  • Wet filters tend to break faster
  • Filters often contain toxic impurities such as formaldehyde and APEO

The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: Safe, Efficient, Enhanced. It’s our nature.

1. SAFE – IT’S OUR NATURE TO PROTECT
A solid core: Our deeply rooted goal to protect people and our planet.
Safe to use, safe to release and also safe to wear.

2. EFFICIENT – IT’S OUR NATURE TO RETHINK SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING
Innovating application processes that minimize resources and maximize productivity, both in our and our customers’ manufacturing as well as by setting ourselves ambitious sustainability goals.

3. ENHANCED – IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE
Innovation is critical. With it, we create additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics and sustainable differentiation to bring additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced.
