Exceptional antibacterial benefits in a stylish porcelain tile

The innovative Bach-Tech tile range from Porcel-Thin takes the standard concept of antibacterial tiles to a completely new level. While antibacterial tiles have traditionally been just regular tiles with an antibacterial coating, with the Bach-Tech porcelain tiles, the antibacterial action runs through the entire tile – meaning its performance will never be worn away, scratched or compromised in any way.

The thin porcelain tiles contain Zinc Oxide nanoparticles. Containing high levels of antimicrobial agents, these are long lasting and control a wide variety of harmful bacteria.

Because the antibacterial action runs through the entire tile, not just the surface, the effectiveness of the hygiene lasts as long as the tile itself. Furthermore, cutting through a standard coated antibacterial tile exposes the unprotected edge to bacteria but with Porcel-Thin’s innovative approach this is no longer an issue.

Testing by the UK Health & Safety Laboratory found a bacterial kill rate of 98% for MRSA and 96% for MSSA, over 24 hours.

The perfect choice for bathroom tiles

In Porcel-Thin’s signature large 1200 x 600mm format, the Bach-Tech tiles are a fabulous choice, whether used as floor tiles or wall tiles.
