Is it possible to improve the atmosphere and quality of life in home interiors and public places with porcelain tiles? The answer is yes, thanks to the scientific and technological progress made by Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™, a process for creating “green” coverings.
We all know that use of porcelain tiles in interiors has always meant easy cleaning, strength and durability. These are the hallmarks and key features of porcelain, defining a product requiring only very limited maintenance.
FMG’s innovative Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ method adds an important benefit for environmental sustainability, producing a unique antibacterial floor.
In its Italian (Sassuolo) and US (Tennessee) plants, FMG makes photocatalytic tiles that are anti-pollutant, self-cleaning, anti-bacterial and odour-free.
This advanced procedure is made possible by natural and artificial light and the moisture present in the air. It reduces organic pollutants, nitrogen oxides (including the principal toxic components in city air) and the principal strains of bacteria.
The result is a revolutionary eco-active and eco-sustainable porcelain tile which was recently awarded a prestige of patent no. EP2443076 by the European Patent Office.
Rigorous scientific tests revealed a number of features of “novelty and inventive activity” in Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™.
Since they were first made, Active tiles have in fact been used in numerous homes, medical facilities and public places, including restaurants, kitchens and schools.
One of the most recent of these is the innovative E’vviva restaurant in Riccione, where proprietors Andrea Muccioli and Franco Aliberti adopt a policy of choosing top quality products from sustainable agriculture and practicing “zero waste”, cooking and have covered part of the kitchen with FMG Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ tiles.
Choosing durability and benefits for humans and the environment that are very relevant today, in line with the new eco-sustainable philosophy of design.
