ACTIVE IS THE WORLD'S ONLY ISO CERTIFIED ANTI-POLLUTANT AND
BACTERICIDAL TILE THAT MAY BE DESCRIBED AS
ECOACTIVE
It makes the spaces you live in safer and healthier.
It improves your life.
WE COME INTO CONTACT WITH COUNTLESS POLLUTANTS EVERY DAY
that damage our health and the healthfulness
of the spaces we live in, both indoors and outdoors

Find out more about them

Bacteria

Every day we come into contact with bacteria that can be particularly hazardous to human health, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)

Air Pollution

Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are the key pollutants for determining outdoor air quality and are also present indoors due to tobacco smoke and city traffic emissions that can get in through doors, windows and ventilation systems.

Dirt

The spaces we live in contain substances that soil surfaces. Fine powders, cigarette smoke and vapours from cosmetics are only a few of the agents that can stain and damage floors and indoor and outdoor walls.

Odorous substances

A multitude of odorous molecules perceived by the nose is dissolved in the air by organic residues deposited on surfaces.

Our goal is
to improve our environment

We have created the world's first ceramic that actively fights pollution and cleans itself through photocatalysis.
ACTIVE is perfect for application indoors and for covering walls outdoors.

Test

To show how Active can improve the quality of exteriors, we have conducted a virtual comparative test revealing the benefits of ACTIVE as compared to ordinary ceramic.

START THE TEST
Active has eliminated
odours

Active’s photocatalytic properties allow it to eliminate odours in contact with its surface in 4 to 5 hours.

CONTINUE
Active has broken down
the pollutants

Laboratory tests demonstrate that Active can break down 1000 ppb of NOx in 6 or 7 hours. At concentrations of 200 ppb, 2 to 4 hours are sufficient.

CONTINUE
Active has eliminated
99.99% of the bacteria!

Laboratory tests demonstrate that Active, if exposed to natural or artificial light, eliminates 99.99% of the bacteria on surfaces within 8 hours.

CONTINUE
Active has eliminated
the dirt

Laboratory tests conducted with colorants, cigarette smoke, wine and coffee stains demonstrate that when Active is exposed to light, it cleans itself in 10 to 15 days with no need for cleaning products.

ORDINARY CERAMIC
Escherichia Coli

The bacterium primarily responsible for intestinal traumas and gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections and meningitis

Klebsiella Pneumoniae

One of the Gram-negative bacteria most commonly identified by physicians all over the world, capable of causing bacterial pneumonia.

Staphylococcus Aureus

An antibiotic-resistant bacterium responsible for infections of the bones and skin, of the respiratory tract, of the central nervous system and of the urinary apparatus.

Fine Particles

These pollutants are typical in urban areas because they are produced by domestic and industrial combustion processes (vehicle and airplane engines, home heating systems, incinerators…) and by wear to tyres, brakes and asphalt. Their small size makes them a key cause of acute and chronic respiratory and cardio-circulatory pathologies.

Nitrogen oxides

Produced primarily by combustion processes in thermoelectric power plants and in vehicles, these are the key pollutants for determining outdoor air quality. Long-term exposure to NOx can result in increased risk of respiratory pathologies, damage the outer surfaces of buildings and monuments and inhibit growth of plants and vegetation.

Volatile organic compounds

VOCs have a major impact on climate change. They are contained in vehicle exhaust gases and in the vapours produced by commonly used substances such as cigarette smoke, spray paint, solvents, etc. The acute effects of VOC exposure include irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, headache, nausea and fatigue. Chronic effects include damage to the kidneys, liver and central nervous system, and tumours in extreme cases.

Cigarette smoke

Nicotine is an organic compound present in the leaves of tobacco plants. In contact with air, it takes on a dark colour which damages and impregnates surfaces, giving them the classic dark nicotine stain and a foul odour.

Smog molecules

Vehicle exhaust and pollutants from city traffic can damage the outer surfaces of buildings and monuments, destroying their original colour and forming deposits on them.

Dirt residues

Dirt molecules created by a variety of activities and circumstances easily adhere to outdoor surfaces such as pavements and coverings, compromising their beauty and healthfulness. This is a particularly important problem in high traffic public places.

Organic substances

Organic substances naturally contain molecules that cause odours, which are carried through the air to the nose. Organic substances often give off foul odours when they deteriorate (cheese, fish, meat, fruit, flowers, etc.).

Odorous molecules

Organic substances naturally contain odorous molecules, which are carried through the air to the nose. There is a practically unlimited quantity of organic substances which give off foul odours when they deteriorate (cheese, fish, meat, fruit, flowers, etc.)

Foul odours

Odours are created by a high concentration of odorous molecules causing negative sensations. They are particularly bothersome in public places such as swimming pools, restaurants and public toilets.

These are the key pollutants for determining outdoor air quality, and they are also present indoors due to tobacco smoke and city traffic emissions that can get in through doors, windows and ventilation systems. Long-term exposure to NOx can result in increased risk of respiratory pathologies (asthma, bronchitis, allergies, etc.).

Volatile organic compounds

VOCs are pollutants in liquid or vapour form produced during use of common products such as cigarettes, paints, cleaning products, photocopiers, printers, etc. They can be present in high concentrations in home and office interiors. The acute effects of exposure to VOCs include irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, headache, nausea and fatigue. Chronic effects include damage to the kidneys, liver and central nervous system, and tumours in extreme cases.

Cigarette smoke

Nicotine is an organic compound present in the leaves of tobacco plants. In contact with air, it takes on a dark colour which damages and impregnates the surfaces of coverings and upholstering, giving them the classic dark nicotine stain and a foul odour.

Vehicle exhaust and pollutants from city traffic penetrate indoors through doors, windows and air conditioning systems, soiling and damaging indoor surfaces.

Dirt residues

Dirt molecules from daily activities such as cooking, leisure and sports activities, etc. easily adhere to indoor surfaces such as kitchen worktops and floor and wall tiles, compromising their beauty and healthfulness.
