DESSO AirMaster® Clears the Air®

Desso AirMaster


On average, people spend 90% of their time

indoors. At Tarkett, we strive to contribute to

people’s health and wellbeing by improving

indoor air quality.

AirMaster® is 4 times more effective in

capturing and retaining fine dust than

standard carpet solutions

It is 8 times more effective than

smooth flooring solutions

How does it work?

> Very fine dust is captured and retained in the fine yarns of the DESSO AirFilters TM


> Coarser fine dust is captured in the thicker yarns of the DESSO DustCollectors TM


> The unique structure of DESSO AirMaster® prevents the dust from becoming airborne again.

DESSO AirMaster® is the first product in the world to be awarded the GUI Gold Plus label, the highest possible accreditation awarded by Gesellschaft für Umwelt- und Innenraumanalytik (GUI), Germany’s leading independent air quality testing organization.

Laboratory test

The GUI Gold label has been awarded based on

the average of 15 repeated tests. DESSO AirMaster®

proved to be up to 20 times more effective in capturing

and retaining fine dust than smooth flooring solutions.

Easy to clean


During vacuum cleaning, more than 80% of

the captured dust is released by DESSO AirMaster®,

which is a 16% improvement over standard carpets.

Understanding particulate matter



Particles with an aerodynamic diameter of up 10μm – these can cause health problems

because they are typically small enough to pass through the throat and enter the lungs.



Fine particles with an aerodynamic diameter smaller than 2.5 μm – these can produce

harmful effects on the respiratory and cardiovascular system.



DESSO AirMaster® contains 100% regenerated ECONYL® nylon yarn,

made from recovered waste materials such as end-of-life carpet yarn

and discarded fishing nets.


DESSO EcoBase is 100% recyclable in our own production process

and contains a minimum of 75% recycled chalk from the local drinking

water industry.11 In 2015, the DESSO EcoBase backing achieved Cradle

to Cradle® Gold level certification and reached the Platinum level for Material Health.
