With Active Surfaces®, every project is worth more
Where the idea comes from
Active Surfaces® are the result of research which began more than ten years ago between Iris Ceramica Group and the Department of Chemistry of the University of Milan.Find out more
100% Italian technology
Designed, developed and manufactured in Italy, Active Surfaces® have two patented innovations: the first relates to the use of micrometric titanium dioxide, which protects worker health during the production process, and the second relates to the preparation of titanium dioxide mixed with silver, which makes the antibacterial, anti-pollution, anti-odour and self-cleaning action of Active Surfaces® effective even in the dark.Find out more
Four actions, a single material
The photo-catalytic process gives Active Surfaces® antibacterial and antiviral, anti-pollution, anti-odour and self-cleaning properties. These lasting properties help to make any room healthier and safer.

FOR BUILDINGS CERTIFICATIONS
The innovative and sustainable technology of Active Surfaces® also makes it easier to obtain a number of buildings certifications.
WELL Building Standard
WELL certification was launched in 2014 by the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™). The system sets out to define the parameters for measuring how buildings can improve people’s lives.
The Gold Standard is one of the strictest standards for the certification of carbon credits. Specifically, it ensures that renewable energy projects effectively reduce carbon dioxide emissions and produce benefits for the local population.
The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification system assesses and certifies the environmental, social and economic sustainability of buildings considered as a whole.
BREEAM is an environmental sustainability assessment method which considers the principles and strategic requirements for measuring the environmental, social and economic impacts of the whole life cycle of a building.
THE MOST PRACTICAL CHOICE
Reduce maintenance costs
With their ultra-hydrophilic properties, Active Surfaces® can be cleaned quickly and easily with water and mild detergents, reducing the need for expensive, aggressive detergents that are often toxic for humans and harmful to the environment.
