Lowe’s now carries “air cleaning” drywall

Lowe’s Canada and CertainTeed have partnered to offer DIYers and contractors a new formaldehyde-absorbing drywall that actively cleans interior air. The home improvement retailer will now stock the industry-only AirRenew Essential Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Gypsum Board in all its Canadian stores.

Featuring industry-first formaldehyde-absorbing technology, AirRenew Essential IAQ Gypsum Board actively cleans the air, offering a solution for healthier interior environments in residential construction and remodeling projects. The AirRenew family of products are GREENGUARD Gold certified and received Environmental Claims Validation (ECV) from UL Environment for permanent formaldehyde absorption. The products contain up to 99 percent total recycled content and, most importantly, they handle the same as regular gypsum boards and do not require special tools to install or finish.
