A total innovation in the world of ceramics: a special glaze that makes it unassailable and
unalterable, blending at 1250° F with the ceramics itself. This revolutionary glazing creates an immediately noticeable difference with traditionally treated surfaces because:
— Doesn’t deteriorate
— Preserves all its smoothness
— Increase the resistance to aggressive chemicals
— Doesn’t lose brightness
— Its lifecycle is as long as the ceramics itself
Total bacteria-proof barrier, creating a perfectly smooth and flat surface, eliminates the micro-depression of ceramics, and does not allow dirt to stick on it any more, guaranteeing:
— Maximum hygiene
— Less use of detergents
— Perfect smoothness
— Easy and quick cleaning
— Less pollution for the environment
— More brightness
Cataglaze is a lifetime treatment, which means it lasts as long as the ceramic itself.
