A convenient loan product lets you borrow up to Php2M using your OR/CR

We have often heard of “pivot” or “pivoting” in business. But how do we pivot our lives to fit the protocols and restrictions that come with these uncertain times? Plans are on hold. Activities have changed. More than a year into the pandemic, long-term financial impact continues to weigh heavily on many of us. Several segments of the population are hit harder than others. Some get by but some continue to worry about the uncertainties of the future. No matter where you are on that spectrum, SB Finance’s flagship product, Car4Cash, may help you pivot with ease. Get the extra cash you need to expand your business or pay for planned expenses such as tuition, travel, home repairs, and more.  Making loans easier for Filipinos SB Finance is a partnership between two Asian financial giants, Security Bank Corporation and Bank of Ayudhya (Krungsri) of Thailand, with a clear focus to help Filipinos from all walks of life. “We’re set to launch multiple products this year starting with Car4Cash, a

Clean Air With Sharp's Plasmacluster Ion and Unique Airflow Technology


Having good indoor air quality is an important part of living in a healthy home. Lacking it can bring two common health problems to your family: allergy and asthma. When you remove the airborne irritants in your place, those who suffer from allergies and asthma gradually find relief from their symptoms. Not to mention, more people now prioritize cleaner air because of the airborne viruses which may harm our family.


Aside from that, even healthy individuals can also benefit from clean air. How? The benefits of breathing quality air are so extensive that they range from a higher quality of life, which translates into a longer life, to more productivity at work; as well as improving sleep, providing quality rest, reduction of sick leave, and, in general, greater comfort.


With this in mind, Sharp Corporation and Associate Professor Masashi Yamakawa conducted a study to prove how Plasmacluster Ions and Airflow technology effectively collect airborne particles. Masashi Yamakawa from the Kyoto Institute of Technology is an expert in the analysis of airborne virus droplets. With his assistance, they confirmed that an air purifier with Plasmacluster ions works much better than the conventional ones.


In this simulation, they utilized Sharp’s proprietary airflow air conditioner and an air purifier with our proprietary 20° Angled Rear-Directed Airflow. After that, they examined the effects of airflow from air conditioners and air purifiers on virus droplets in living spaces. 



They also calculated the speed and direction of the airflow of air conditioners and air purifiers and analyzed its movement in a living space under simulated usage. Yamakawa analyzed the movement (collection to equipment, adhesion to the surroundings) when virus droplets were released. Here’s a model of Sharp’s simulation together with Professor Yamakawa’s analysis.



For airborne virus droplets, suspended particles are shown in red and adhering particles are shown in blue.


In this simulation, there’s a comparison between a general air purifier that sends air directly above the product with an air purifier with our proprietary 20° Angled Rear-Directed Airflow. Apart from that, they did an analysis and comparison using an air conditioner equipped with a general filter with high air pass-through efficiency.


The general air purifier releases a direct upward flow that causes the virus droplets to diffuse in several directions. How about Sharp’s air purifier? It causes the air to circulate so virus particles are effectively captured without being dispersed in space.


The same thing happens with Sharp proprietary airflow air conditioner versus a traditional one. For the regular air conditioner, the airborne virus droplets are carried on air currents and drawn into the air conditioner so they are not captured. These droplets are diffused again into the room on the air flowing out from the air conditioner. 


With a Sharp air conditioner, the air is blown upward. When an air purifier is placed directly underneath, an airflow is created that quickly circulates around the room. This process enables airborne virus droplets to be captured effectively.



For almost two decades, Sharp has been working toward achieving comfortable indoor air environments by using Plasmacluster and airflow technologies. Because of that, they have various products that are equipped with these advancements. Here are the latest appliances with Plasmacluster Ion Technology.

  1. Sharp FP-J50P-H Air Purifier – If you’re living in a small condo or house, this is an excellent companion for fresher air. It can cover a 40sqm of room with its high-density PCI generator and fan. No need to worry about high electricity bills because this one comes with an inverter operation. In addition to that, you can control this with your smartphone because of its Smart Operation function through AIoT. 
  2. Sharp Plasmacluster Ion Electric Fans – As we’re living in a tropical country, electric fans are necessary for every household. Sharp is leveling up your typical electric fan by equipping it with Plasmacluster ion technology to fight off germs, molds, allergens, and viruses. Moreover, this one features an Anti-Overheat Motor for long hours of usage and consumer’s safety. It has a 160 degrees rotation action and three-speed setting. Lastly, Sharp Plasma cluster Ion Electric Fan comes in three different models so you can choose according to your need.




Most importantly, it features Plasmacluster ions which deactivate airborne allergens, viruses, and pollutants by using positive and negative ions.
