HygieneGlaze 2.0 was selected by Architectural Products magazine as a winner of its annual Product Innovation Awards
Say the judges: "[This finish] was innovative earlier when it was released and now it is more refined." Cheers to an already award-winning year!
With 200 years of ceramic expertise, Duravit has set the industry standard for material innovation and is pushing the boundaries further with the launch of HygieneGlaze 2.0. The original HygieneGlaze ceramic finish was first released in 2015, but Duravit’s research and development team has now further advanced its innovative antibacterial glaze to create the masterfully effective 2.0 version.
The new HygieneGlaze 2.0 is not only powerful on toilets and urinals, but also rapidly effective. After twelve hours, 99.9 percent of bacteria are eradicated. After 24 hours, HygieneGlaze 2.0 reaches an unprecedented level of 99.999 percent bacteria elimination.
HygieneGlaze 2.0’s manufacturing process is key to its impressive reduction in pathogens like E.Coli. Baked into the ceramic, HygieneGlaze 2.0 extends from the interior of the basin to the rim of the toilet or urinal. With this thoughtful and intuitive design, the HygieneGlaze 2.0 easily tackles areas high in bacteria accumulation. The glaze swiftly kills E.Coli bacteria by use of the “oligodynamic reaction” - the effect of positively charged metal ions on bacteria. HygieneGlaze 2.0’s optimized formula contains a new combination of various metal ions and active substances that elevate HygieneGlaze 2.0 above the rest.
