Cotto d'Este has always offered the highest quality products, together with unparalleled beauty and cutting-edge solutions. Today, thanks to ongoing work at the Panariagroup Research Centre and a prestigious agreement with the global leader in antibacterial technology Microban®
, we are proud to announce that Cotto d'Este porcelain stoneware and laminate stoneware tiles for flooring and covering, produced with Microban® technology, are designed with something more than beauty and durability in mind: biological health and safety for our living, leisure and working environments. Thanks to built-in technology based on silver, our tiles are protected by an innovative antibacterial shield that eliminates up to 99.9?of bacteria on surfaces
and guarantees long-lasting protection against wear and tear, climatic conditions and repeated cleans in any usage environment.Cotto d'Este Microban websiteThe Microban® protection is directly incorporated into the tiles during the production process:
when bacteria comes into contact with the treated surface, the Microban® technology reacts, blocking the metabolism of the bacteria. It therefore interrupts the life cycle of bacteria, which is no longer able to proliferate and survive.
In addition, Microban® technology is active 24 hours a day, guaranteeing continuous protection day and night, keeping tiles more hygienic in between cleans.
Unlike disinfectants, which provide an instantaneous solution, but one that is not long-lasting, Microban® guarantees a durable solution
, providing continuous action against bacteria throughout the entire life cycle of the product.Microban® technology has undergone rigorous trials conducted by independent laboratories
and benefits from a long history that guarantees its safety of use. It is registered in Europe under the Biocidal Products Directive for all applications in which it is used. Microban® builders are incorporated into consumer goods, industrial products and medical equipment manufactured by some of the world's leading companies. Today, this technology is available exclusively to Cotto d'Este: always at the cutting-edge!
