ACTIVE SURFACES are developed by the Iris Ceramica Group style centre to suit any mood, from traditional to contemporary. The four collections: PIETRA DI BASALTO ACTIVE / URBAN ACTIVE / MARBLE ACTIVE / UNI ACTIVE collection offer a range of colours and surfaces, formats and thicknesses to choose from. Ad hoc solutions can also be developed for pre-established batches.
Bacteria and viruses have a short life on an ACTIVE ceramic porcelain surface. Using (natural or artificial, even LED) light and the humidity naturally present in the air, ACTIVE surfaces eliminate 99.99% of bacteria that settle on them, from the most common to the antibiotic-resistant ones. It is also demonstrated that ACTIVE surfaces eliminate particularly contagious viruses: tests performed on the H1N1 and H3N2 influenza viruses, Enterovirus 71 and Poliomyielitis have confirmed an efficacy of over 99%.
The air is cleaner wherever ACTIVE is installed: ACTIVE surfaces transform polluting molecules (e.g. nitrogen oxides or VOCs, volatile organic compounds) that may be present both inside and outside the building into harmless substances.
In an environment cladded with ACTIVE SURFACES has no room for bad odours: thanks to their photocatalytic properties, ACTIVE surfaces eliminate the molecules that cause this unpleasant phenomenon.
On an ACTIVE surface, dirt adheres less. Consequently, it is even easier to clean, without the need for expensive and aggressive detergents that are potentially harmful for people and the environment. ACTIVE surfaces can be used on the external façades of buildings, where the action of rainfall is sufficient to keep them clean, eliminating maintenance costs.
ACTIVE SURFACES uses a patented technology developed in collaboration with the Chemistry Department of the University of Milan with ISO certified effectiveness. The unique action of titanium dioxide and silver allows an active photocatalytic surface to be achieved even with LED lights, with antibacterial and anti-viral properties even in the dark. Furthermore, for the safety of those who work with it, ACTIVE SURFACES uses larger titanium dioxide particles (micrometer rather than nanometer). A 100% Italian scientific innovation.
ACTIVE ceramic porcelain surfaces are 100% recyclable. Most of them are made with over 40% recycled material content, in accordance with the LEED requirement. Laboratory tests show that 1 sq. m of ACTIVE surface takes only 2 years to offset the nitrogen oxide emissions arising from its production, unlike conventional inert construction materials. Furthermore, ACTIVE surfaces are produced in zero-emission factories.
