Globally, the use of air purifiers is increasing, especially in countries with high levels of pollution. In addition, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more consumers are paying more attention to the health of the home environment, the consumption concept is upgrading, and the market demand for air purifiers is increasing.
The FDC intelligent air purifier certified by Intertek adopts multiple filtration and sterilization procedures to purify the air and kill bacteria. The air purifier effectively removes tiny particles through the HEPA13 filter, absorbs harmful gases and odors through activated carbon, effectively decomposes harmful gases after the UV lamp irradiates the catalyst screen, and disinfects bacteria and viruses. In addition, it can release negative ions and effectively inhibit bacteria and increase oxygen to bring consumers fresh air like a forest after rain.
Tick-Mark is Intertek's leading independent and impartial product performance verification and claim program. The program provides independent verification in terms of quality, safety, performance, function, social responsibility and product reliability, and highlights the advantages of the company's products in all aspects. During the close cooperation between Intertek's professional technical team and FDC, the disinfection and sterilization function of FDC's intelligent air purifier has been comprehensively evaluated. According to Section 2.1.3 Air Disinfection Effect Appraisal Test of the Technical Standard for Disinfection (2002 Edition), the product is tested for the killing rate of H1N1 influenza virus and Staphylococcus albus in the air.
