Marazzi Carácter mit Puro Marazzi Anti­bac­te­rial Technologie

Exploiting the unique properties of silver ions, built-in antibacterial technology blocks the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms which may cause stains, unpleasant smells or premature wear of the product. 

According to th manufacturer, with the new technology Puro Marazzi Antibacterial, bacteria and other harmful microorganisms can be eleminated on ceramic surfaces by up to 99.9 percent. By incorporating the additives that combat germ proliferation in the initial product firing phases, Puro Marazzi ensures a constant action against a broad spectrum of bacteria, in any light conditions, and an exceptionally long surface lifetime, since it dynamically prevents the marks left by organic wear.

Puro Marazzi porcelain stoneware and ceramic surfaces are ideal for all locations - residential, commercial and public - especially in contexts where improved hygiene, cleanliness and safety must be guaranteed, such as bathrooms in, bars, restaurants, hotels, Doctors' offices, schools, retirement homes or hospitals.

Puro Marazzi Antibacterial, intrinsic hygiene and safety

The silver ion ceramic additives used for the manufacture of Puro Marazzi Antibacterial surfaces are incorporated in the top layer of ceramic glaze before firing.

The silver ion additive is incorporated in the ceramic tile production process before firing at 1200°C, becoming an integral part of the product. Therefore, it is not an extra layer on top of the ceramic surface, liable to be scratched or worn; it is a permanent treatment that guarantees constant antibacterial protection over time.

The bactericidal action, tested in accordance with the toughest international standards, remains active throughout the surface’s life cycle and does not require activation by external agents such as UV radiation. Puro Marazzi Antibacterial ceramic coverings can be installed on the walls and floors.

Many locations, especially indoors, may have little or no UV radiation. Thanks to their built-in silver properties, Puro Marazzi Antibacterial ceramic surfaces guarantee an effective product protection against bacteria and other harmful microorganisms in all lighting conditions. Further more, the bactericidal action withstands the chemicals on which many of the most common disinfectants are based, often ammonia compounds.
