The COVID pandemic has fuelled a surge in appetite for antimicrobial products, particularly to keep kitchens, bathrooms, WCs and showers clean and fresh.
Tiles provide a durable and aesthetically pleasing surface for dry, wet and hygiene areas. These areas can be prone to humid conditions together with soaps and food residues, which can harbour bacteria, mould and mildew and therefore regular cleaning is required – often a quick and easy process where surfaces are tiled.
To ensure even greater levels of hygiene, BAL are the ONLY UK manufacturer to develop both grout and sealant products with the world-leading, anti-microbial solution provider Microban®. These products ensure long-lasting protection against black mould and potentially harmful microbes and bacteria for all tile finishes.
Because the Microban technology is in-built within BAL formulation’s, Microban protection provides continuous antibacterial and antifungal protection that lasts the lifetime of the products, helping to create a cleaner, fresher and more efficient building application.
Microban can be found in a number of BAL products including the leading BAL Micromax2 grout range and colour co-ordinated BAL Micromax Sealants.
