“Antibacterial surfaces”: Tecna Next webinars to resume on 27 January
Colorobbia, Microban and Metco will be participating in the next webinar organised for TecnaNext.com by Ceramic World Web. The event will be livestreamed on 27 January in Italian and on 28 January in English
Following the success of the first event held last December, the series of technical webinars organised for the Tecna Next platform by Ceramic World Web and Ceramic World Review is set to resume.
The next event, entitled “Safe Ceramics: Antibacterial Surfaces”, will take stock of the latest and most innovative technologies for the production of ceramic tiles and slabs with antibacterial properties, a product segment that is currently seeing a big increase in demand.
The event will be held on Tecna Next in two livestreaming sessions:
- Wednesday 27 January at 10.30 a.m. (in Italian) - Click here for the registration form
- Thursday 28 January at 10.30 a.m. (in English), with a repeat at 3 p.m. on CeramicWorldWeb.it - Click here for the registration form
During the event, Colorobbia, Microban and Metco will present the results of their latest research in this field.
Laura Niccolai (Colorobbia) will discuss the characteristics of the new patented metallic silver-based products to be applied either in the form of a coating prior to the ceramic tile firing phase (Parnasos IG) or directly during the glaze grinding process (IGEA).
Giorgio Rimini from Microban Europe, a company that has been developing built-in antibacterial technologies for ceramic surfaces since 2006, will discuss the benefits of long-lasting antimicrobial surface protection provided by Microban solutions and will offer guidance on the various international standards.
Graziano Vignali, chairman and head of research at Metco, and Claudio Casolari will describe the methods of use and the results that can be achieved with NOBacter 05, a technology that incorporates active antibacterial centres into the ceramic body in order to make the antibacterial action permanent for the product’s entire lifetime.
