More often that not, to stand out manufacturers need to use top of the line materials and come up with new and innovative technology that has never been seen before. Jasba, a German tile manufacturer, has done just that with its introduction of the Hydrotect technology.

Hydrotect is an anti-microbial technology built into the surface of many of the Jasba tile lines. This technology is beneficial in many ways to the tile consumer. The first benefit of this new innovation is the elimination of lime scale, fat, and dirt on tile surfaces. Hydrotect, is activated by light and then becomes hydrophilic (water-attracting). Instead of forming drops, the water is distributed as a wafer-thin film evenly over the tile surface making it a breeze to wipe off without the build up or image of water spots, dirt, and soap residue.

By eliminating lime scale, dirt, and fat, you also get rid of the existence of germs and unpleasant odors. The use of interior light as the activation source for Hydrotect keeps the process natural. Oxygen is produced and in turn destroys bacteria and the formation of new germs. This also helps hinder the growth of mold and alleviates the presence of unpleasant odors that may arise from improperly cleaned tile surfaces.

Hydrotect is totally non-toxic and free of irritants. The coating is permanently burnt into the tile’s surface and has a practically unlimited lifespan. All of the Jasba tiles with the Hydrotect coating are clearly marked with the Hydrotect symbol making it easy to determine which products fall under the category.

If it’s a beautiful tile with ease of maintenance you are after, stop in or give us a call at Home Carpet One. We would be more than happy to show you what the Jasba line has to offer.
