Carácter, the first collection to use the new Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology
Featuring a wide range of finishes and sizes, the Carácter collection is designed with versatility in mind. It also takes into account the current situation which requires greater guarantees of hygiene and cleanliness, not only in the home.
Indeed, Carácter is the first collection to integrate the new Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology for ceramic surfaces, which can eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms, featuring the StepWise™ patent, which ensures soft, cleanable, anti-slip surfaces, the result of a process that uses 40% recycled materials.
The antibacterial protection, thanks to the silver ion treatment incorporated during the production process before the stoneware is fired at 1200 °C, lasts for the product’s entire life cycle and also functions in the absence of light: silver ions naturally bind to enzymes, proteins, cellular membranes and DNA to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi, without the need for activation by UVA rays.
Carácter is a stone-effect porcelain stoneware and ceramic collection suitable for both floor and wall coverings.
In porcelain stoneware, Carácter has three more uniform surfaces, in the Blanco, Arena and Greige colours, and three more varied surfaces that include multicoloured pebbles – Multicolor Mix, Greige Mix and Gris Mix –, in natural variant for interiors and structured variant for outdoor use, both available in the 60x120, 60x60 and 30x60 cm sizes.
When used as a covering, Carácter offers three ceramic colours, Arena, Blanco and Greige, and a Walltone 3D structure that combines two micro-textures that can be matched with the plain tiles. The Quad decor – consisting of twelve irregular square modules – recalls the process of handcrafting stone and reproduces alternating geometric patterns and scratches.
It is possible to juxtapose the different tone-on-tone finishes or to focus on the contrast of the pebble shades, enlivening and disrupting the uniform surfaces, both horizontally and vertically. For creative interior design with surprising effects.
Carácter can be used both indoors and outdoors, from contract situations to domestic environments. In response to the increasingly frequent design of articulated and hybrid spaces that seamlessly unite indoor and outdoor environments.
