Valeo ClimSpray™ – Voted Product of the Year 2021.
Disinfectant against coronaviruses in vehicle cabins wins consumer award
Valeo ClimSpray™ has just been awarded the “Voted Product of the Year” logo. With a simple spray, Valeo ClimSpray™ disinfects a vehicle cabin in 15 minutes and renders any coronavirus-like viruses, bacteria and fungi inactive. The solution contained in the product has been certified by an independent medical laboratory, demonstrating its compliance with European anti-microbial efficacy standards*.
The product has the dual advantage of not only preventing the spread of infectious microbes at the source, but also releasing a pleasant fragrance. Valeo ClimSpray™ is trace- and stain-free**.
Helping to improve air quality is a key innovation focus for Valeo. In addition to Valeo ClimSpray™, the Group has also developed very high-efficiency air filters, which create a barrier to entry for air pollution. Thanks to three layers of material and a natural coating made up of polyphenols from plants, fruits, vegetables and good oxidants, they block ultra-fine particles, harmful gases, fungi, mold and certain viral particles of more than 0.3µm (or 0.0003mm).
Hygiene in the vehicle cabin is a major issue, particularly when the vehicle is shared through carpooling or ride-hailing. A BCG study (April 2020) found that, since the emergence of Covid-19, 80% of respondents see cars as the safest means of transportation.
Valeo’s innovations, such as Valeo ClimSpray™, protect people from pollutants, germs, allergens, particles and viruses, transforming the vehicle into a sort of “health shield”.
