Mirage porcelain stoneware is noted for its high technical performance and bold aesthetic impact. The hard work that Mirage puts into research and development allows it to continually develop production and technology. Hy-Pro24 is a concrete example of this development.
This innovative technology hat makes it possible to treat porcelain stoneware with titanium dioxide (TiO2) hot applied, directly included in the transparent structure of the material. The treatment is further enhanced by active metal elements that combat germs and bacteria, giving an effective contribution to their removal.
Mirage porcelain stoneware, which already boasts excellent technical performance, thus becomes an antipollution, hygienising, hotocatalytic material, self-cleaning on ventilated facades, combining the advantages of Mirage porcelain stoneware with all the benefits of titanium dioxide and the metal elements added to it.
The technology used employs an innovative fixing process, creating a building material in which this treatment is no longer just a surface layer that can easily be scratched by walking on it, but actually becomes an integral part of the ceramic material itself. The action of the HY-PRO24 treatment thus proves to be abrasion-resistant and able to last over time.
Thanks to HY-PRO24, Mirage products become ultra-hydrophilic, making it much easier to remove dirt, especially thanks to the cleaning action triggered by water on vertical walls.
It thus becomes easier to clean surfaces, as well as carrying out an effective anti-smog action against NOx, VOC e PM10, and improving the quality of the air we breathe.
Above all, HY-PRO24 products guarantee the cleanliness of surfaces, eliminating any germs and bacteria, especially in domestic environments.
A material treated with HY-PRO24 therefore becomes:
- Anti-pollution, contributing to combating smog, fine particles and other harmful pollutants.
- Active in defending against germs and bacteria, through the combination of TiO2 and active metal elements.
- Self-cleaning on outdoor vertical applications, thanks to the ultra-hydrophilic properties.
