Overview
Name of product/article
STARLIKE® DEFENDER
Type
Anti-bacterial epoxy mortar for grouting
Materials

Two-component acid-resistant epoxy mortar, anti-bacterial and anti-mould. Suitable for the gluing and grouting of ceramic tiles and mosaics in environments with high hygiene requirements. Particularly suitable in combination with antibacterial ceramic tiles.
99.9% bacterial reduction.
Main characteristics: in an antibacterial flooring-wall system, it is necessary for both the tile and the joints to be antibacterial. Litokol, in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Sciences, Microbiology section, of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, has created Starlike® Defender, the first sealant which kills up to 99.9% of the bacteria represented by the main strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Eschirichia coli. Cleaning a surface with a common disinfectant instantly eliminates microbes, but any type of contact is enough to contaminate it again. Starlike® Defender, instead, guarantees continuous protection against bacteria due to the active antibacterial ingredient included inside the grouting which works by direct contact, eliminating up to 99.9% of the bacterial colonies present. The antibacterial principle is therefore active both with and without light.
Classification EN 13888: Class RG - Reactive grout
Classification EN 12004: Class R2T  Enhanced reactive adhesive with zero vertical slip.
