AirRenew® M2Tech® . The only gypsum board that clears the air.

­AirRenew® M2Tech® Gypsum Board is for use in interior walls and ceilings and is specially designed to offer a healthier living and working environment by improving indoor air quality and offering peace of mind for generations.

AirRenew takes VOCs out of the air and converts them into safe inert compounds. Once they are captured in the board, they cannot be released back into the air.
M2Tech® technology also improves indoor air quality by providing enhanced moisture and mold resistance.

CertainTeed AirRenew® M2Tech® Gypsum Board accepts water based acrylic paints, primers, textures and breathable wallpapers. The surface shall be primed and sealed with a full-bodied latex primer before applying a final decorative material. This will equalize the suction between the joint compounds and the paper surface.
For best painting results, all surfaces, including joint compound, should be clean, dust-free and not glossy. If glossy paints are used, a thin skim coat of compound over the entire surface, Level 5 finish, is recommended to reduce highlighting or joint photographing. This method is also recommended for areas of critical sidelighting of natural or artificial light sources. A water based primer/sealer application under breathable wallpaper or other wall covering is also recommended so the board surface will not be damaged, if the covering is subsequently removed during redecorating.
