Chemical resistance of ceramics to cleaning products | by Francesca Ebaldi

The global pandemic situation has led each of us to analyze from a different perspective our own living situation, both in terms of space and in terms of the healthiness of our homes. Aspects that contribute to increasing the hygiene of the environments in which we live are gaining particular importance.

One of the main actions taken to reduce the spread of Covid-19 is to disinfect spaces with harsh chemicals, which can affect coating materials.

Not all materials used for floor and wall surfaces react in the same way to these sanitizers, which can be aggressive and lead to the loss of the aesthetic qualities and technical performance of the coating materials.

Ceramic materials are resistant to chemical agents and represent a hygienic solution, helping keeping environments healthy. Molds, fungi and bacteria frequently attack certain flooring materials if not cleaned often with specific products; the latter can be more aggressive, and lead to the loss of the aesthetic qualities and technical performance of the materials.
