Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™
Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ was created from a request from the founder Romano Minozzi, he envisioned to combine material, science and technology aimed to manufacture a new type of ceramic tile capable of being not only attractive but also has a unique feature: it plays a part in improving our quality of life by actively fighting pollution. Its photocatalytic action also means it is self-cleaning and antibacterial. This amazing technology makes it possible for indoor and outdoor spaces, also interior and exterior of buildings to actively help to create a better environment as a long term contribution.
This revolutionary production method also makes it possible to manufacture ceramic materials for floors and walls, and they are able to make a concrete antibacterial action and they lead to a reduction of pollutants, which unfortunately are a constant in the current urban condition. The collection ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ can be laid, both in the indoor and outdoor environments of buildings, materials that actively and permanently contribute to a better environment. Some of the benefits can be seen as following:
1) Bactericidal Effect : The strong oxidizing power of the ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ photocatalytic action is able to remove the bacteria, some of which are very dangerous for the humans. Photocatalysis does not really kill the bacteria but it decomposes them, irretrievably damaging their cells and causing their death. ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ removes 100% of these bacterial strains.
2) Self-cleaning Properties : The photocatalytic activity of the TiO2 of the ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ tiles exerts a dual effect on the daily dirt on the floors and walls (powder, organic residues, etc.) So, the dirt removal is easier and the use of detergents is reduced.
3) Anti-odor Efficiency : Another characteristic is that ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ is able to degrade the most common organic molecules that cause the smell.
4) Effectiveness against NOx : The photocatalytic process due to the TiO2 deposited on the ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ tiles destroys and transforms a lot of pollutants and toxic substances in harmless compounds such as nitrates, sulfates and carbonates.
