Our business idea is to simply and effectively ensure healthy indoor air. We humans spend perhaps 80% of our lives indoors. Therefore, it is of major importance that this air is healthy. cTrap should be the obvious first choice to remedy emission problems. We would also like cTrap to be used in a preventive manner – before health problems arise.

History

cTrap was developed from research at Lund University on the link between moisture damage and ill-health. With the idea of an emission barrier in the form of an adsorption cloth, and with the help of LU Innovation, the cTrap cloth was patented and cTrap AB was formed. Over the years the company has grown steadily, with constant quality assurance as a guiding principle.
