HomeNewsDaltile launches Defend line with Microban

Daltile DEFENDDallas—Daltile launched its “Defend powered by Microban” program and new floor, wall and mosaic tile products. According to Daltile, Defend is a distinct product line of high-performance tile featuring Microban technology offering antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial product protection. Since Microban technology is built into the tile, it is designed to remain intact and not wear away. This powerful shield continuously eliminates up to 99% of bacteria on the tile surface, according to Daltile.

Daltile’s new product offering was created in partnership with Microban International.

“It is widely known that tile is foundationally the best product solution for today’s ‘germ-aware’ world,” said Paij Thorn-Brooks, vice president of marketing for Dal-Tile Corporation. “Unlike other surfaces, tile is hard and impervious, so it is innately resistant to the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. Tile is also a hypoallergenic surface that harbors no odor or bacteria. Daltile has now elevated this already superior protection to the next level through the development and launch of Daltile’s new Defend powered by Microban program.”

Thorn-Brooks added that Defend will provide customers with the cleanest environments to live, work and play in. “Daltile’s Defend products are an excellent solution for residential spaces such as kitchens (interior and exterior), bathrooms, nurseries, game rooms and playrooms as well as commercial spaces such as restaurants, bars, gyms, spas, airports, train stations, shopping centers, schools, theaters, corporate offices, sports centers and healthcare environments,” she said.
