The eco-active ceramic materials Active Surfaces® of Iris Ceramica Group, covered by two patents and certified according to ISO standards, are the 100% Italian answer to our need for safety and well-being.
On the market for over 10 years, the technology of Active Surfaces® exploits the photocatalytic properties of titanium dioxide which, when combined with silver, transforms a simple ceramic slab into an eco-active material with antibacterial and antiviral, anti-pollution, anti-odour and self-cleaning properties. These properties are effective also against SARS-COV-2, the virus responsible of Covid-19, which is eliminated up to 94% after only 4 four hours of exposure to light (natural or artificial).
Ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications, thanks to exposure to light and humidity, Active Surfaces® are able to eliminate bacteria, viruses, molecules responsible for bad odours and polluting particles, transforming them into harmless substances for our health. These materials prevent dirt from adhering to the ceramic slab, which results easier to clean, making the action of rain sufficient to keep external façades clean for a long time, preserving their aesthetics and reducing maintenance costs. Furthermore, the effectiveness of Active Surfaces® remains throughout all the life cycle of the ceramic slabs, proving to be an important investment for the future.
In all indoor and outdoor spaces that require constant cleaning and hygiene, the eco-active properties of Active Surfaces® contribute to purifying the air and improving the quality of life, making the environments healthier and more comfortable. Without sacrificing aesthetics and while respecting the environment.
