Thanks to its expertise, Casalgrande Padana can provide the fullest, most efficient and certified range of bioactive ceramics. The products have been grouped into two specialist ranges that can fulfil any interior or exterior application requirement through the best possible combination of antibacterial, self-cleaning and pollutantreducing effects, depending on the intended use. The colours, finishes and sizes the designer can choose from are fit for any application and combine excellent aesthetic and finishing solutions with world-class technical specifications.
Bios Antibacterial® is the product range for facing and flooring in fully vitrified unglazed stoneware with excellent antibacterial properties that can remove 99.9% of the 4 main bacterial strains living in the environment: Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococcus faecalis. Bios Antibacterial® is available in two versions:
- Bios Antibacterial HYDROTECT®, developed in partnership with TOTO, combining the antibacterial properties of noble metals with those of titanium dioxide. In interior applications, where lighting conditions are unable to trigger the photo-catalytic/antibacterial reaction, the addition of a noble metal-based treatment gives the tiles antibacterial properties and the ability to remove bacteria and smells, even without any light.
- Bios Antibacterial Granitogres®, patented by Casalgrande Padana, the result of a research project in partnership with the Department of Biomedical Science, Microbiology Section, of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. An innovative silver-based antibacterial treatment enables these slabs to remove the main bacterial strains, even without any light. The difference is that such treatment is applied throughout the body of the tiles, so their antibacterial effect does not diminish over time. Bios Antibacterial Granitogres is therefore particularly suitable for high-traffic areas.
