RAHWAY, N.J. & PLANO, Texas (June. 24, 2020) — Grignard Company, a manufacturer of atmospheric effect solutions, and Luminator Technology Group (Luminator), a global leader in transit technology and communication solutions, today announced a partnership focused on providing new safety offerings for public transit amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Luminator will provide the “Grignard Pure” air treatment solution in its portfolio of on-board technology for mass transit operators focused on keeping passengers, operators and other transit employees safe from spread of the virus. Once Grignard Company receives governmental approvals, Luminator will begin in-market distribution of Grignard Pure.
Grignard Pure is proven to inactivate enveloped viruses such as the novel coronavirus in the air, where it is most dangerous, and on non-porous hard surfaces, delivering much-needed continuous protection of indoor and enclosed spaces, including transit buses and railcars.
Recent guidance from health officials indicates that daily or “episodic” surface cleanings are important but deliver incomplete and short-lived protection. To mitigate the potential for further spread of the coronavirus, episodic cleanings must be coupled with the “continuous intervention” functionality of an air treatment solution to directly confront airborne transmission of the virus.
In May 2020, Grignard Company engaged Microchem Laboratory, an EPA and FDA Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)-compliant testing organization, to conduct extensive and rigorous efficacy testing. The results demonstrate that Grignard Pure is effective in inactivating 99.9% of airborne virus particles in less than 10 minutes.
Intrinsik, a globally recognized scientific and regulatory consulting firm, also assessed the product’s health and safety qualifications in May 2020. Intrinsik performed a toxicology risk assessment that confirmed the product is safe for use when used as directed and exposed to a population for extended periods of time.
Grignard Pure is a closely related product to Grignard Company’s portfolio of lighting effect solutions. Over the last 20 years, hundreds of millions of people around the world have experienced these products in environments including stage productions, concerts, sporting events, and places of worship.
