During the manufacturing process, the glaze is infused with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology, which inhibits the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria on the surface of the tile. The result is an additional layer of protection, keeping the tile cleaner, between cleanings
Microban® Technology is incorporated into the glaze during the manufacturing process, so it starts working the moment the tile is complete. Unlike other antimicrobial agents on the market, Microban® doesn't require UV light to be effective. It won't wash off or wear away, giving your design an added level of durable, long lasting protection - and it's perfect for high traffic environments.
Some foreign imports entering the market today claim to be porcelain tile, but do not actually meet the U.S. standards for porcelain - putting you at risk of specifying an inferior product for your project. PTCA protects you by guaranteeing the products you specify are, in fact, porcelain tiles.
