Shield: the antimicrobial process for ceramics

The product: antimicrobial surfaces

The Emilgroup laboratories have developed a process which aims to make living and work spaces even safer from a pleasant perspective.
Thanks to its built-in antimicrobial technology, Shield reduces up to 99.9% of the bacterial growth on ceramic surfaces treated, making it the perfect ally for domestic or professional environments in which protection and cleanliness are non-negotiable.
Shield is also extremely versatile: all Emilgroup range products can be supplemented with this innovative process, without impacting in their looks and qualities, but enhancing the cleanability and durability of their surfaces.

Shield with silver ions

Shield by Emilgroup achieves the highest levels of antimicrobial performance according to the most popular laboratory test methods.
Why is Shield so effective? Because it is based on the use of the integrated silver ion technology which strengthens its protective function and the continuity of the antimicrobial action, also contributing to preventing the formation of stains and unpleasant odours on ceramic surfaces. This innovative technology guarantees a reduction of up to 99.9% in Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus on the treated surface.
