Daltile releases DEFEND, antimicrobial tile range powered by Microban.
FREMONT, CA: Daltile is all set to launch its DEFEND range of floor, wall, and mosaic tile products featuring Microban antimicrobial technology. This world-pioneering antimicrobial technology is developed into the tile so that it will not wash off or wear away, offering a surface that is continually protected, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for its whole lifetime.
Microban antimicrobial technology is revamping product cleanliness by offering lasting and product protection against the growth of bacteria, keeping walls, floors, and surfaces cleaner. The built-in multi-modal additive functions at a cellular level continually prevent the growth and proliferation of microbes on the surface of tiles. By mitigating the bioburden, this technology prolongs cleaning intervals, lessens odors caused by bacteria, and limits premature degradation to increase the lifetime of the tile.
Microban has 35 years of leadership experience and is trusted by over 300 partners globally, applying its technical expertise to proficiently combine antimicrobial additives and odor control solutions for lasting product protection. Treated articles are cleaner, fresher, and more durable without ever compromising on style or functionality. Microban is extremely pleased that its valued partner Daltile releases the DEFEND range of stylish tiles with the added benefit of its antimicrobial product protection. The power of Microban antimicrobial technology developed into these tiles offers Daltile’s customers peace of mind by providing an added layer of cleanliness in environments in which they live, work and play.
Surface cleanliness has become a priority as the world becomes more conscious of microbes. Microban technology provides the tiles a unique competitive advantage, offering an excellent solution for residential homes and commercial buildings like sports centers, corporate offices, and restaurants – to offer consumers the freedom to worry less and live more.
