Kastus® Intelligent Surface Technology™

How it Works

Kastus’ patented technology solution is sprayed onto glass or ceramic surfaces, and sinters into the surface during firing. The result is an enhanced surface that provides always on antimicrobial protection for life. 

As visible light falls on the coated surface, it activates the unique Kastus® Intelligent Surface technology™.

Once activated, this technology reacts with moisture in the air to form reactive oxygen species.  These agents constantly attack and destroy the harmful bacteria they encounter, leaving a super hygienic, germ free surface.


Kastus® is a breakthrough antimicrobial coating powered by the patented Kastus® Intelligent Surface Technology™. Designed to create a 24/7 germ-free surface for life, it delivers a unique range of additional benefits in one advanced solution.

Kastus® is available for both glass and ceramics products, while being ISO certified to the highest industry standards.
