The strong and gentle soul of cement
It is said that there is more bacteria on one hand than people on planet Earth. How is it possible then to live with surfaces freely, especially flooring?
The solution has arrived thanks to the Panariagroup Research Centre, which has created the PROTECT® line. Besides being beautiful and remarkably resistant, PROTECT® antimicrobial surfaces have been created with Microban® technology, developed by the world leader in the sector: a true antimicrobial shield built into the ceramic product that eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria on the surface.
The result is a surface which is consistently protected, with high levels of hygiene, unalterable from wear and tear and climatic conditions.
Powerful Action, kills up to 99.9% of bacteria: The technology used in PROTECT® products, based on silver ions blocks the metabolism of bacteria, eliminating them and preventing their proliferation.
Continuous protection, 24 hours a day, with or without sunlight: unlike other technologies, such as those based on the use of Titanium Dioxide, the protective shield is always active, day and night, with or without sunlight and it does not need UV rays for activation..
Eternal effectiveness, thanks to technology integrated into the product: silver ions, permanently integrated into the tile at the moment of firing, are active throughout the life cycle of the product and always guarantee a high level of protection between cleaning operations.
Quality guaranteed, by the partnership with Microban®, leader in the antimicrobial industry: PROTECT® is guaranteed by the partnership with Microban®, the world’s leading company in the use of antimicrobial technology applied to numerous sectors and products. Furthermore it complies with international safety regulations and it is tested by independent specialized laboratories.
MORE HYGIENIC AND EASIER CLEANING
The level of cleanliness of the product can be visibly improved with PROTECT® antimicrobial technology, and while not a substitute for normal cleaning, it allows complete and easier cleaning, rendering it less expensive and allowing you to reach a better level of protection between cleaning operations.
IT ALSO ELIMINATES SUBSTANCES WHICH ARE NOT VISIBLE
Bacteria are invisible, but that doesn’t mean they are not there! Thanks to PROTECT® antimicrobial technology the growth of bacteria is significantly limited on floor and wall tiles, kitchen countertops, etc.
LESS BACTERIA, LESS ODOURS
The presence of bacteria can cause odours, just think of the exercise equipment found in gyms. Reducing bacteria reduces the odours.
