Desalin T

Nanoparticles from the SurfaShield® T formulation chemically bonds on tile surfaces and assures strong abrasion resistance (Class III). SurfaShield® T coated surfaces can efficiently eliminate organic stains, bacteria, fungi, gaseous pollutants and even odours by harnessing the surrounding light (natural or artificial).

Self-Cleaning and
Self-Sterilising

Continuous permanent protection

Due to their nano size, SurfaShield® T particles absorb the available surrounding light energy. That energy is then transferred to water and oxygen molecules in the environment. These two are then transformed to reactive, short-living radicals (hydroxyl and oxygen radicals respectively) that ‘attack’ bacteria or organic stains within a range of 50 μm from the surface.

Simple Application during
Tile Production Process

A wet, spraying deposition method has been chosen to combine simplicity and minimum disturbance to the existing industrial processes. SurfaShield® T is transparent, chemically inert and perfectly adheres on ceramic surfaces by chemically anchoring on the existing surface. The method involves overhead high quality air-spraying (HVLP or atomizing airless spraying) just after the main furnace exit, when tiles are cooled down, at surface temperature of 50-60°C. No other post treatment is required. Before packaging of tiles, adhesion process has been completed. Detailed application steps:

  • The application surface should be dry and clean.
  • Apply SurfaShield T by air-spraying at a consumption rate of 30-38 m²/L, strongly dependent on the properties of the surface applied. No dilution is required.
  • At an industrial level, application takes place on single-firing (monocottura) tiles, just after exiting the main furnace and when their surface temperature is at 50-60°C. Shiny or glossy finish ceramic tiles should be given the appropriate care (HVLP spraying is recommended) to eliminate visible defects.
