  • Resistant to UV rays.
  • Water-resistant: Drop effect, non-absorbent and does not change colour.
  • Patented: International patent number 1403659.
  • Bacteriostatic: CSTB-tested, prevents the proliferation of bacteria and moulds.
  • Stain proof, and can be cleaned easily.
  • Complies with HACCP/EC 852/2004 requirements for food hygiene.
  • Catas-tested for colour durability in external applications.
  • EMICODE® Green Building rating: Eco 3.
  • Contributes to LEED points.

Applications:

For use in domestic, commercial and industrial applications and street furniture subject to permanent or occasional contact with chemical substances, in environments subject to heavy traffic, swimming pools, thermal water baths and fountains, heated floors, also in areas subject to thermal shock and freezing.

– Suitable substrates:

  • Porcelain tiles, low thickness slabs, ceramic tiles, klinker, cotto, glass and ceramic mosaic of all types and formats.
  • Natural stone, recomposed materials, marble.

Consult manufacturer for recommended substrate preparation and substrates not suitable for the application of this product. Coverage is dependent on thickness, joint width and substrate type.
