reading time: 3 minutes
The special Puro Marazzi Antibacterial The Top collection of large slabs, available in six colours including the new Travertino Classico, gives kitchen and bathroom countertops superior antibacterial and hygiene properties. For design in total safety.
The Puro Marazzi Antibacterial technology is the innovative antibacterial technology by Marazzi now also applied to large stoneware slabs 12 mm thick, perfect for the most hard-wearing kitchen countertops. It is able to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms, rapidly and effectively combating their proliferation and preventing the formation of stains and unpleasant odours. Innovation is delivered not only by the treatment’s performance but also by its intrinsic properties: the silver ion additive is incorporated during the stoneware production process before firing at 1200°C, becoming an integral part of the product. Therefore, this is a permanent treatment that cannot be scratched or worn away and guarantees constantly active protection over time, in any light conditions. The Puro technology also ensures long-term conservation of the appearance and technical qualities of porcelain stoneware surfaces, which are ideal for the construction of kitchen countertops, tables and washbasins in residential and commercial locations.
The Puro Marazzi Antibacterial The Top special edition features stoneware slabs in 162x324 cm size with thickness 12 mm in six concrete, marble and stone effect variants: Concrete Look White, Marble Look Elegant Black, Golden White and Statuario, as well as Stone Look Ceppo di Gré and Travertino Classico. This last-named finish now enters The Top collection for the first time, providing a porcelain stoneware version of the colour and semi-compact surface typical of the stone so widely used since ancient Roman times.
Puro Marazzi Antibacterial The Top is a collection intended in particular for use in kitchens, for all worktops intended for preparing and eating food, or in frequent use. The state-of-the-art antimicrobial technology actively combats the bacteria’s metabolism, blocking their reproduction and also impeding the growth of food-borne pathogens, such as Salmonella and Campylobacter. This antimicrobial and antibacterial action is constant over time and in any light condition and also prevents the formation of unpleasant odours, keeping rooms fresher and healthier.
Puro Marazzi Antibacterial enables the use of porcelain stoneware in any context and the creation of worktops and integral washbasins in total safety.
