Antimicrobial ceramics redefine sustainability in tiled commercial spaces

Jun 19, 2024

Maintaining cleanliness while preserving aesthetic appeal poses a significant challenge in commercial environments. Microban International addresses this dilemma head-on with its antimicrobial technology for ceramic tiles.

In a recent article with Tile and Stone Journal, Demetra Bernard, Director of Marketing at Microban, underscored the transformative impact of these innovations, highlighting their potential to elevate cleanliness standards across high-traffic areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.

Demetra stresses the pivotal role ceramics play in commercial settings, where durability and cleanliness are non-negotiable. These surfaces often contend with persistent microbial growth exacerbated by frequent use and conducive environmental conditions. Conventional cleaning methods offer only fleeting relief, prompting costly cycles of harsh chemicals and premature replacements that strain budgets and harm the environment.

To combat these challenges, Microban works with tile manufacturers to integrate Microban antimicrobial technology directly into ceramic glazes.

The technology provides continuous protection against microbial proliferation without relying on UV light, ensuring longevity and minimizing the need for frequent cleaning and replacement. This approach aligns seamlessly with sustainability objectives, reducing environmental impact while maintaining high standards of cleanliness.
