Le Maitre's PureHaze fluid is specially formulated to produce very dry and very long lasting haze.
Designed to hang in the air and accentuate beams of light, it results in some of the best haze for lighting enhancement.
PureHaze fluid is used in much smaller proportions to smoke fluid (used in some competitive haze machines), thus giving the benefit of atmosphere without the large consumable cost.
Le Maitre’s concentrated sugar based solution combined with the patented machines produces an incredible haze with a terrifically long hang time. Alternative machines on the market tend to use hazers which are essentially smoke machines with fans, and consequently have to use much lower concentrated haze solutions.
There is no comparison between Le Maitre’s haze and oil-based hazers which can leave a messy, slippery residue on sets, resulting in health and safety risks, as well as leaving deposits on equipment lenses, causing damage.
Equally Le Maitre’s sugar based haze solution results in no side effects. By comparison, alternative systems using triethylene glycol based hazer have been found to cause respiratory, nasal, throat and vocal irritation.
Furthermore Le Maitre’s PureHaze Fluid is approximately 90% active ingredient, compared to competitive haze formulas which are essentially smoke fluids and only 5-10% active ingredient and 90-95% water. For the same volume of fluid used, Le Maitre's haze machines actually output 90% more haze!
Not only is Le Maitre's haze more effective, but it is much more cost effective therefore to produce haze from our haze machines and PureHaze Fluid vs competitive smoke fluids and haze fluids.
vs Smoke Machines:
A typical Le Maitre Haze machine eg the MVS Hazer can produce 62.5 hours of continuous use (at 80cc output) from just 5 litres of fluid, compared to a smoke machine, which typically gives 1.4 hours of continuous use from 5 litres of fluid.
So although smoke fluid may appear five times cheaper per litre, it actually costs 16 to 18 times as much per hour of output! A huge difference
vs Competitive Haze Machines & Fluids
Le Maitre's PureHaze Fluid as already mentioned gives nearly 100% effective haze in the air whereas alternative haze/smoke machines put just 10% of haze in the air at best due to their very diluted haze fluids. Subsequently their high content water based haze has to be pumped out in far greater quantities to achieve the same result thus greatly putting up the cost of consumables.
For use in the Neutron XS Hazer; MVS; Stadium Hazer; and HazeMaster.
Can also be used with the Radiance Hazer.
Le Maitre's haze fluid is sugar and water-based with 90% active ingredient and completely safe to use on live stage performances. Le Maitre has participated in several reports on equipment guidelines, calibration and health effects on the use of theatrical smoke and haze as prepared by bodies including ESTA and Environ and copies of these reports can be found on the Equity Website here.
