Kastus® Ceramics is a spray coating designed to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria. The light-activated solution carries a range of additional benefits to ceramic surfaces, including scratch and stain resistance, and chemical resistance. Kastus® Ceramics is an eco-friendly coating that ensures no visible changes to the surface and it provides permanent surface protection for a more durable ceramic product.

Kastus® Ceramics is effective in indoor or outdoor lighting conditions. To unlock the benefits of Kastus® Ceramics, the coating is applied to the ceramic surface during the manufacturing process, prior to firing. With an ability to endure exceptionally high temperatures, a chemical reaction is triggered during the firing process.

This value-adding technology can be applied to any ceramic surface and will transfer all the benefits of Kastus® Ceramics to the finished product. This is done without impacting the appearance and texture of the surface, is environmentally-friendly and economically viable.
