The product, redstone LUNO™ - Active Coating, was applied to the building’s ceilings and within a day, its employees were breathing easier. The product is just one of several environmentally friendly products that are now being introduced to builders and contractors in the United States by redstone USA LLC. Many of the products have been used successfully in European homes and businesses for nearly a decade.
According to the Center for Disease Control, the number of people diagnosed with asthma grew by 4.3 million between 2001 and 2009. One theory is that widespread use of cleaning products and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) may be partially responsible for the rise in asthma and other lung diseases.
Research has identified literally thousands of different airborne pollutants in floor and wall coverings, paints, upholstery, cabinets, cleaning products and cigarette smoke. redstone LUNO™ is able to neutralize these airborne pollutants by as much as 95% in just a matter of days and continuously provide a healthier indoor environment.
In Westerly, Rhode Island, one homeowner was complaining about the musty smell of old wood in her 110-year-old house. Redstone LUNO™ - Active Coating was applied to the ceiling of one room and within a day, the odor was removed. The customer was so impressed she had the product applied to every room of the house.
Not just owners and operators of Hotels, Assisted Living Facilities, Hair and Nail Salons throughout the United States are using redstone LUNO™ to improve their working and living environment and breath healthier air also the Manufactured Housing Industry is working with the coating to provide a cleaner indoor environment.
In addition to the fact that redstone LUNO™ product line removes odors and airborne particulates it also keeps walls and ceilings looking as new as the day they were first painted. One of redstone LUNO’s active food-safe ingredients is the titanium dioxide that’s also used in products such as toothpastes, sunscreens, deodorants and pills. Exposed to a light source, a chemical reaction takes place that removes stains and will continuously breakdown even greasy particles that can cause surfaces to fade and yellow. That makes this product line especially effective in restaurants and cooking areas.
The growth in green building across the United States is one of the primary reasons redstone has decided to introduce their products in the United States. One of the goals of green building is to create a healthier indoor environment. Redstone LUNO™ products have been helping builders accomplish this goal in Europe for a long time with proven results.
Tests of two identical rooms in the Radisson Grand Hotel in Helsingborg, Sweden, the Waldorf Astoria Edgewater Beach Resort in Naples, Florida and the Renaissance Vinoy Marriott in St. Petersburg, Florida showed concentrations of more than a dozen contaminants were eliminated or significantly reduced shortly after the application of redstone LUNO™ - Active Coating. In Europe and the US, the product is used extensively in hospitals, restaurants, senior living facilities, and commercial and public buildings.

In addition to the redstone LUNO™ product line, redstone USA is also marketing naturally capillary active building product systems that can effectively and permanently prevent the formation of mold, and at the same time greatly improve a structure’s insulation and thermal performance, helping homeowners significantly reduce their heating and cooling bills.
