What ‘s ARIAPURA?? The sinks that purify the air in the kitchen room !
The sinks that purify the air in the kitchen!
The brand new compound material of Plados-Telma sinks is provided with nanoparticles of Titanium Dioxide (TiO2), able to interact with the kitchen ambiance by reducing
air pollution, by making an antibacterial action and by making it easier to clean.
Nanoparticles of titanium dioxide, present in the innovative material, activate the natural phenomenon of photocatalysis, a process that mimics the photosynthesis of the trees,
which transforms the organic and inorganic pollutants present in the environment into harmless mineral salts.
ACTIVE AGENT ARIA PURA PERFORMS
A TRIPLE ACTION:
1 • ANTI-POLLUTING
2 • ANTIBACTERIAL
3 • SELF-CLEANING
How does it work?
When Titanium dioxide interacts with sunlight or artificial light it starts a photocatalysis process capable of degrading the organic substances which constitute the normal dirt in the kitchen.
The process of photocatalysis by oxidizing reagent (titanium dioxide) decomposes the organic and inorganic substances in the atmosphere responsible for pollution, turning them into smaller,
simpler and odorless molecules.
In addition to the decomposition of pollutants in the environment, the photocatalytic titanium dioxide prevents the proliferation of bacteria and performs self-cleaning activity.
Additional photocatalytic qualities of the titanium dioxide consist in killing many types of bacteria (especially Staphylococcus, adenovirus, etc.) enabling the hygiene of environments.
The same antibacterial qualities allow the removal of mould, fungi, mosses and odours.
Bad smells that sometimes originate in sinks could be caused by bacteria proliferation, mostly in warm-humid conditions. Antibacterial protection avoids bacterial proliferation and maintains,
using the normal cleaning and hygienic practice, a cleaner and fresher sink. Ariapura protection determines a significant bad smells reduction, both on sink (also under the sink where we usually
keep the wet waste) and in the air, making it fresh.
A 100% ANTIBACTERIAL SINK
Often the sink is used like a preparation zone for foods. A sink in contact with food could transmit bacterial infections. With Plados sinks, provided with antibacterial protection, this risk is reduced,
offering more safety to the family.
Plados-Telma has been the first company to propose the sinks with antibacterial protection in the Italian market. Now, with Aripaura international patent, we are in a new step:
a complete technology that allows to purify the kitchen air, makes the sink easy to clean and provides an antibacterial action against bacteria, virus and mildew that is often cause of stains and bad smells.
The active agent of titanium dioxide is present in the sink mass, it means that is not located only on the surface as a simple paint, but entirely covers the volume of the manufactured product.
A kitchen sink with our ARIAPURA particle rejects dirt. Over the sink surface you will not see any bad looking limestone and that makes our kitchen sinks easier to clean and more eco-friendly.
As with the rest, our self-cleaning action is due to titanium dioxide nanoparticles which are part of the sink itself, they are not on the surface only, and that makes the action endure over time.
Titanium dioxide nanoparticles attract water particles making an invisible layer over the whole surface. This way, when water drops touch the surface, they flatten themselves and slide away,
so that nothing stays on the surface. As the kitchen sink is used to prepare food for the whole family, some residue could linger becoming filth, but with our ARIAPURA protection, the kitchen
sink is much better at holding out against residues and spots, so that it’s easier to clean. The bad smell that sometimes you can find in normal kitchen sinks is usually due to residual filth over
the surface. Self-cleaning Plados-Telma Kitchen Sinks instead, with normal cleaning practices, are cleaner and fresher.
[accordion_item title=’What is Ultraclean® protection?’]
It is a very innovative technology, providing a constant and unlimited protection against dirt, which could often cause stains and bad smalls. Ultraclean effectiveness and safety have been strictly tested for a long period of time in our laboratories and the results have been remarkable. Thanks to the active function of Ultraclean protection, which is incorporated inside sink’s structure during manufacturing process, it will last for the entire life of the sink, hygiene and freshness lasts longer. Plados-Telma sinks with Ultraclean protection are more clean and fresh between uses.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
With Ultraclean protection water drops do not break up, but they slide away reducing in this way the surfaces wet level.
THE LOTUS EFFECT
After several researches and tests, our company’s laboratories have succeed in reproducing the way “Lotus” leaves react towards dirt. The Lotus flower is considered a symbol of pureness in the Asiatic religions, probably because although it is often immersed in muddy waters, it is pollution and dirt proof. Because of this reason Lotus has been studied in order to reproduce on our sinks surfaces its way to react towards water and dirt. The most important result of the Lotus effect in nature is the protection against organic pathogen contaminations, like spores and bacteria.
BENEFITS OF A PLADOS-TELMA ULTRACLEAN® SINK
- Higher resistance to stains and dirt.
- Sinks are easier to clean and therefore more hygienic and fresh.
- A sink with Ultraclean protection is safe, and has a higher protection against bacteria proliferation.
- Ultraclean protection is effective and lasts for the whole sink’s life.
- Ultraclean protection is present whitin whole sink’s mass
[accordion_item title=’What is the antibacterial protection “Microstop®”??’]
Plados-Telma group has been the very first company to propose antibacterial sinks. The active function proposed by Plados-Telma is based on natural silver ions, and gives a constant protection against bacterial proliferation. Bacteria can cause mould, stains and bad smells. Thanks to the active function of the antibacterial element, which is incorporated in the sink’s structure during manufacturing and lasts for the whole life of the sink, freshness and hygiene last longer. Plados Telma antibacterial protection is colourless and odourless; it doesn’t reduce its action with the sink use or after time.
A FRESHER AND CLEANER SINK !
Bad smells that sometimes originate in sinks could be caused by bacterial proliferation, mostly in warm-humid conditions. Antibacterial protection avoids bacterial proliferation and maintains, using the normal cleaning and hygienic practice, a cleaner and fresher sink.
A MORE HYGIENIC SINK!
A sink in contact with food could transmit bacterial infections. With Plados-Telma sinks, provided with antibacterial protection, the risk is reduced, offering more safety to the family.
