Technical Information

Argeton tiles are extruded ceramic façade elements. After the firing process, they are cut to length in the pulling direction. Ceramic tiles are non-flammable according to DIN 4102-4 and EN 13501-1 (material class A1). Argeton tiles have high static qualities and are resistant to water and frost.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Argeton façades are almost maintenance-free. In case of impurity the type of pollution should first be clarified:

  • Pollution through dirt or dust: Clean with water, brush and, if necessary, a gentle detergent based on tensid. The brush should consist of not too hard bristles, which leave no scratches on the surface of the tile surface.
  • Algae or greenspan: In the case of ventilated façades, it is rare to see the effects of the algae. If there is any damage to the façade, the façade can be cleaned using standard ecological algae remover.
  • Graffiti: Graffiti can usually be removed with biodegradable graffiti remover. These should neither have a subsequent protective layer function nor a nano effect. The respective instructions must be observed.
A mechanical treatment of the façade tile is to be avoided in order not to damage the natural surface structure of the bricks. We will gladly assist you with any contamination which can not be removed by the above recommendations.
