Permanent active protection, even in the dark, 24/7

Thanks to the exclusive combination of titanium dioxide and silver, ACTIVE surfaces provide protective action even in the dark or in the presence of both natural and LED lighting.

Safety for every style

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. Specific solutions can also be developed for set batch sizes.

ACTIVE SURFACES

destroy bacteria and viruses and stop biofilm formation

Bacteria and viruses have a short life on an ACTIVE high-performing ceramic 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 more antibiotic-resistant. It is also demonstrated that ACTIVE Surfaces eliminate particularly contagious viruses: tests performed on the H1N1 and H3N2 Pandemic Influenzas, Enterovirus 71 and the Poliovirus have confirmed an efficacy of over 99%. Active Surfaces have obtained the following ISO Certificates (Antiviral activity ISO 21702 – ISO 18061) and (Antibacterial activity ISO 27447 – ISO 22196).

In addition to these research-studies Active Surfaces have achieved a ground-breaking milestone in the fight against SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19). According to data, Active Surfaces are able to eliminate 94% of SARS-CoV-2 after only 4 hours of exposure to low intensity UV light (natural light and traditional light bulbs).

Clinically proven safety

ACTIVE surfaces were chosen for the interiors of the Mediclinic clinic in Pozzonovo, offering protection from methicillin-resistant bacterial strains, which are very dangerous for human health as they are resistant to common antibiotics.

ACTIVE SURFACES

fight pollution

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.

A building that becomes a forest

ACTIVE floorings and wall claddings were chosen for the De Castillia 23 project in Milan. 16,088 sq.m. of ACTIVE SURFACES remove 59 kg of nitrogen oxides from the air every year: it is the equivalent of having planted a forest of 200,000 sq.m.

ACTIVE SURFACES

eliminate bad odours

In an environment tiled with ACTIVE SURFACES there is no room for bad odours: thanks to their photocatalytic properties, ACTIVE surfaces eliminate the molecules that cause unpleasant smells.

A great smelling restaurant

ACTIVE surfaces were chosen for the dining rooms and kitchens of Identità Golose in Milan, the first international gastronomy hub. The ideal place to take advantage of the anti-odour and antibacterial properties of ACTIVE SURFACES.

ACTIVE SURFACES

fight dirt

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.

An eternally white façade

Architect Mauro Rossetto chose ACTIVE surfaces for the White Tower in Lignano Sabbiadoro, where, thanks to the self-cleaning action, the building façade stays clean, maintaining its beauty.

A unique technology

ACTIVE SURFACES use 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 creates an active photocatalytic surface even under LED lights, and with antibacterial and anti-viral properties even in the dark. Furthermore, for the safety of those who work with it, ACTIVE SURFACES use larger titanium dioxide particles (micrometer rather than nanometer). A 100% Italian scientific innovation.

ACTIVE SURFACES are green to the core

ACTIVE ceramic porcelain surfaces are 100% recyclable. Most of them are made with over 40% of recycled materials, in accordance with LEED requirements. 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.
