How it works

The antimicrobial additive incorporated into our floorings involves a silver-based technology and a ceramic material that regulates the release of the silver, guaranteeing optimum uniformity of performance and long-lastingness.

SIREC flooring gives continuous protection against microorganisms by releasing ionic silver on the surface at a slow, constant rate. The antimicrobial properties of silver have been known for thousands of years: the ancient Egyptians were already using silver in 3000 BC to protect the water in their cisterns, thus preventing diseases caused by contaminated water. Silverís antibacterial properties were scientifically proven back in 1893 by Swiss botanist Karl Wilhelm von Nageliís research.
