The WINIX Plasmawave® air purifier technology harnesses nature’s ability to clean the air and recreates the natural, safe and effective process that purifies air. This technology creates a safe & short electrical discharge to create dual polarity ions (positive and negative) and disperses them into the air. As the ions attach to the surface of air pollutants, such as bacteria or viruses, they naturally remove hydrogen from the molecular structure of air pollutants, thus eliminating them and resulting in cleaner, fresher air.


  1. Greatly reduces odors from everyday smells  such as bodily, cooking and smoke.
  2. Protects indoor air by reducing mould growth rates.
  3. Increases air purification performance by reducing static electricity so air pollutants are captured by the air purifier airflow directing them into the multi-stage filtration process.


  1. The PlasmaWave® air purifier technology creates a short electrical discharge to create dual polarity ions from air moisture that are dispersed into the air. This electrical discharge is safe and only occurs for a short period of time (nanoseconds).
  2. These are positive hydrogens (H+) and negative oxygen ions (-O2). Together they form hydroxyl radicals (the so-called “detergent of the atmosphere”), which attach themselves to particles and gases in the air and break them down naturally by removing hydrogen from their structure.
  3. This interaction removes air pollutants and allows the ions to use the missing Hydrogen ion, which was removed from the structure of the air pollutants, to return as air moisture (H2O).


Plasmawave® Technology can be incorrectly mislabelled as an “Ionizer” or confused with negative ion generation technology. Our technology is far superior because it produces both positive and negative ions while ionizers only produce negative ions.

Negative ion air purifiers do not eliminate air pollutants. Instead, negative ions force contaminant particles to group together so they are weighed down onto the surface of furniture and floors. Everyday activities such as walking or vacuuming can reintroduce these contaminants by helping them become airborne once again. Only the WINIX Plasmawave® air purifier technology effectively reduces the concentration of air pollutants.

LR - WINIX Plasmawave technology


Yes, Plasmawave® meets the California Air Resource Board’s AB 2276 standard, which is the most rigorous American certification benchmark for indoor air cleaning ozone-emissions. To attain compliance, air cleaning devices must be tested for electrical safety and have ozone emission ratings below the 0.05 parts per million limit.
