Tougher Than Your Toughest Environment

new glaze technology provides built-in
antimicrobial protection

During the manufacturing process, the glaze is infused with Microban® Antimicrobial Protection, creating an environment which inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. The result is an additional layer of durable, long-lasting protection, keeping the tile cleaner between cleanings.

bacteria inhibiting protection lasts the
life of the tile

Microban® Technology is incorporated into the glaze during the manufacturing process, so it starts working the moment the tile is complete. Unlike other antimicrobial agents on the market, Microban® doesn’t require UV light to be effective. It won’t wash off or wear away, giving your design an added level of durable, long-lasting protection — and it’s perfect for environments with heavy traffic volume.

Microban® Antimicrobial Technology is not designed to replace normal cleaning practices or protect users against foodborne illness. MICROBAN® is a registered trademark of Microban Products Company.
