Ambience, from inspiration to purity
When eco-design meets science, the result is Laminam, large ceramic surfaces which revolutionise the concept of living.
In addition to its vitrified surfaces’ inherent characteristics – resistant to various kinds of common, everyday stains (such as coffee, wine, lemon juice, oil, make-up) and bacteriostatic (inhibiting the growth of microbes and bacteria) – Laminam has developed Ambience, a range of optional treatments aimed at raising levels of hygiene and cleanliness even further.
Following years of research and experimentation, Laminam has identified titanium dioxide as an active ingredient which acts as a photocatalytic substance when combined with secondary particles. This means that when a Laminam slab treated with Ambience is exposed to sunlight in an external setting – or to artificial lighting indoors – it activates a natural process which works in a similar way to chlorophyll photosynthesis. The Ambience treatment allows Laminam slabs to absorb and transform pollutants present in the air and water (VOC, NOx, SOx) into harmless elements.
