The radiometric quantity of far infrared ray is excellent. (92.1%)

The sun's rays are divided into ultraviolet ray, visible ray and infrared ray.Ultraviolet ray functions chemically such as sterilization, and visible ray is light which is recognized, mainly called sun light. Infrared ray is related with bioaction having about 0.78μm~1000μm of wavelength and it is divided into near-infrared ray which is near visible ray and far-infrared ray which has longer wavelength. There are many classifying ways by theory, but generally, it is classified into near-infrared of 0.78μm~3μm, mid-infrared of 3μm~6μm, far-infrared of 6μm~15μm and extreme infrared of 15μm~1000μm.

The effects of radiation of far infrared are as the followings.

  • It may improve vitality as promoting cellular movement in human body with activation of molecular movement of water.
  • It may facilitate metabolism as triggering molecular movement of substances by resonance absorption action.
  • It may accelerate blood circulation as strengthening capillary movement by thermal effect.

It makes air be fresh as producing anion.

Anion makes interior be fresh by precipitating and removing cation containing various harmful substances. And any electrostatic does not occurred due to effect of anion so that fine dust cannot adhered to curtain, furnitures or clothes and it makes us clean house easily. Also it makes echo or intense of light for us be comfortable.

Relieve atopic symptoms

It blocks hexavalent chromium which is one of induction substances of atopy in cement so act as a relaxant of atopy symptoms.

Humidity control

Humidity control capacity of soil has functionality 3 times of general cement, and it may absorb moisture when house is wet and release moisture when house is dry.

Construction is easy for everyone to use directly.

Put 55~60% water compared with weight of material into ARA powder container, stir it and apply it using roller, brush or airless gun. There is no smell so it can live on the construction day.

Place where is available for ARA

  • Available to apply on wallpaper without withdrawal existing wallpaper
  • Available to apply on that without withdrawal existing water paint
  • Available to apply anywhere human live such as on plywood, cement wall, children's room, elder's room, office, any work place where you may feel heavy fatigue, living room, karaoke, office of nursery or classroom, particularly the place where has strong smell of mildew such as basement.
