Innovation for Cleaner, Fresher Ceramic Surfaces

EL-KHAYYAT recently expanded its production capabilities to the manufacture of red body floor and wall tiles. The establishment of EK Ceramics forms part of a wider project for product diversification and underpins the group's current range of building materials.

In a bid to redefine the Middle-Eastern ceramics industry, EK Ceramics has partnered with Microban International to create a range of antibacterial ceramic tiles.

Added to the ceramic glaze at the stage of manufacture, Microban® SilverShield® technology becomes an intrinsic feature of the tile surface. It works by disrupting the vital life process and biological functions of contaminating bacteria, meaning they are unable to grow or reproduce on the treated tile.
