Although the Duravit brand was born in 1960, the company's beginnings date back to 1817, for which it has a "tradition of innovation" culture. Today Duravit AG is an international group with 10 production points and more than 5,000 employees worldwide.
Duravit demonstrates again and again its willingness to break new ground with innovative techniques, with exceptional design and with the creation of new product segments.
And although we live in the age of high technology and automation, quality still depends to a large extent on the craftsmanship of man. For this reason Duravit maintains a high percentage of manual production to guarantee the high standard.
This new development is not only a superficial primer, but a ceramic glaze with an almost unlimited antibacterial effect that is composed of metal ions (based on zinc-tin).
The HygieneGlaze is integrated during the vitrification firing. This elaboration process guarantees a continued reduction of the bacteria. HygieneGlaze, applied during cooking, develops its function where bacteria and germs appear most frequently.
Compared to the usual vitrified surfaces, the germs are eliminated by the HygieneGlaze by 99.9%, a level never reached before.
