ACTIVE: an ecologically active material, good for people and the environment 
New confirmation of the effectiveness of ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™, an innovative treatment developed by GranitiFiandre and Iris Ceramica for floor and wall coverings.

The latest tests conducted by the department of physical chemistry and electrochemistry of the University of Milan on samples of White Ground Active ceramic floor and wall tiles from the ACTIVE Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ collection have demonstrated that Active can reduce pollution to below the 40 microg/m3 threshold in only three hours.

Graziano Verdi, Chairman and CEO of Fiandre and the Iris Ceramica Group, says that “The importance of our innovative product offering demonstrated benefits for the environment and individuals has been recognised once again.”

The process of oxidation of titanium dioxide (TiO2) present in the form of micrometric particles on Active ceramic tiles is naturally triggered in the presence of light (sunlight or artificial light) and moisture in the air.

The procedure, which involves no risk to humans or the environment, transforms toxic pollutants produced by exhaust gases into simpler substances and compounds such as nitrates, sulphates and carbonates.
The oxidising power of photocatalysis also has an effective bactericidal action, making Active ceramic wall and floor tiles suitable for use in places where surfaces must be aseptic and free of pathogenic microorganisms (schools, hospitals, medical clinics, etc.).
