Why Bios?

As we re-imagine our public and work spaces, we have the opportunity to consider more than just the aesthetics and durability of our interior finish materials. Casalgrande Padana has been an innovator in the Porcelain Tile industry for 60 years, creating materials that embody the essence of Italian style while meeting the highest standard of technical performance.

Today more than ever before, we see the need to not only create beautiful and functional spaces but to implement best practices in designing the healthiness and hygiene of our spaces. Maintaining optimal hygiene and living in a clean environment is essential for the health and sustainability of our society.

Bios Antibacterial® is the result of a collaboration between Casalgrande Padana and various Italian universities and research centers. It is offered across the range of Casagrande’s product offering. Tiles with the Bios Antibacterial® treatment can remove up to 99.9% of the four most common bacterial strains in confined environments: Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterococcus faecalis. The technology allows for a considerable reduction of harmful substances, thereby ensuring a healthier environment while also eliminating odors.

How it works:

Bios Antibacterial® exploits the antibacterial properties of titanium dioxide along with well-balanced selection of noble metals. These natural materials do not release any harmful emissions and are effective in areas with and without exposure to UV light. In addition, the benefits are even more impressive in the presence of humidity, a traditionally fertile environment for bacteria. In swimming pools and outdoor areas, the technology can destroy bacteria and combat mould, yeast and fungi.

A proven track record:

Casalgrande Padana has been a leader in the ceramic market with antibacterial treatment since the introduction of Bios Ceramics® over 10 years ago. The technology has been effective in various contexts and project categories all over the world. Bios Antibacterial® is an ideal choice for floor and wall coverings in all settings where hygiene is of importance: healthcare clinics, hospitals, supermarkets, educational and transportation facilities, and public restrooms.
