Pure Genius

More manufacturers are developing coatings and materials that purify the air without changing the look of the substrate. Canadian flooring manufacturer Lauzon designed a proprietary titanium-dioxide finish for hardwood flooring that it says decomposes bacteria and mold, and breaks down VOCs in the air into water and carbon dioxide when exposed to light. The Pure Genius finish resists water and is currently offered on the company’s Authentik red oak and Organik FSC–certified maple flooring collections.
