The introductory photograph can apply to any collection, such as the wall-hung Nuvola range, since we still do not have the coordinated images.
In collaboration with the University of Modena and under the direction of Angelo Rossini, AZZURRA is studying and patenting NOBACTER 05, an antibacterial system especially created for ceramic bathroom ware.
To eliminate entirely the bacteria of the most common virus strains linked to enclosed areas such as the bathroom, a high level of hygiene is required. To meet this requirement, AZZURRA has developed and patented the antibacterial system NOBACTER 05, which may be applied to both sanitary ware and toilet seats.
Once the sanitary ware and toilet seat are treated with the product, it remains effective over time and does not need to be topped up or reapplied.
NOBACTER 05 is applied to the ceramic during the last phase of the production process, directly onto the surface after the application of the Glaze, before being heated at 1250°. This treatment does not alter the ceramic surface, maintaining the appearance and all functional features typical of ceramic sanitary ware.
The treatment further enhances Azzurra’s production, putting human beings and real needs at the centre of its design process.
