Les dalles ACTIVE pour revêtements de sol et murs sont en mesure de réduire signifi cativement les effets nocifs des principaux polluants atmosphériques (CO-NOx-SOx- COV) et d'éliminer, de façon quasiment totale, certaines bactéries.
ACTIVE: THE ECOACTIVE MATERIAL FOR INTERIOR ANDEXTERIOR
ACTIVE SURFACES is a photocatalytic product able to activate all the properties of the photocatalytic materials:
• Antibacterial and antiviral, in addition to 99% effective, against Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2: The oxidation process induced by ACTIVE SURFACES photocatalysis destroys bacteria which come into contact with the surface. From an antibacterial point of view, the presence of silver makes the ceramics active, even in the dark, against both common strains and those particularly harmful to human health such as antibiotic-resistant strains (MRSA).
ACTIVE SURFACES also prevent the formation of biofilms. Recent ISO certifications confirm ACTIVE SURFACES antiviral properties. Tests conducted on two particularly insidious and contagious viral strains, H1N1 influenza virus and Enterovirus 71, demonstrate over 99% efficacy against viruses. In addition, ACTIVE products’ anti-mold and anti-fungal properties are also certified. ACTIVE SURFACES were the subject of a major study by the Department of Biomedical, Surgical and Dental Sciences, and Department of Biomedical Sciences for Health at the University of Milan, to verify their antiviral properties against the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus (responsible for Covid-19). The research was carried out by Iris Ceramica Group's ACTIVE Research and Development Department in collaboration with the authoritative technical and scientific committee of the two departments at the University of Milan. The resulting data confirmed the astonishing ability of ACTIVE SURFACES to eliminate 94% of SARS-CoV-2 after only 4 hours of exposure to low intensity UV light (natural daylight and traditional light bulbs even at low intensity).
• Anti-pollution effect: thanks to the photocatalytic process, the volatile molecules of pollutants are converted into harmless substances, just in presence of natural or artificial light and humidity. The antipollution effect was proven by specific tests performed in certified academic laboratories; formaldehyde and nitrogen oxides were selected as reference molecules of the indoor and outdoor pollution respectively.
• Self-cleaning effect: Dirt does not adhere thanks to the new hydrophilic properties of the photocatalytic surface, and their cleaning will be easier even without aggressive cleaning agents (which are also a source of pollution), but just with water or neutral soaps. Outdoors, the rain is able to clean surfaces keeping the original colors unchanged and preventing next maintenance. ACTIVE SURFACES also has anti-mold and anti-fungal properties.
• Anti-odor effect: smelling organic molecules are degraded and destroyed thanks to the photocatalytic properties of the Active surfaces, which eliminate bad odors. Laboratory tests on strongly odorant molecules, such as methylmercaptan (which is usually added to methane and shows a typical strong smell of rotten cabbage) or alpha-pinene (the typical pine fragrance) proved the complete efficiency of Active in killing this kind of molecules.
