2013-09-23 12:45:34 - Four Amazing Patent Pending Technologies by Orient Bell Limited, New Delhi 30 April 2013
Orient Bell Ltd’s patent pending technologies are:
1. “Forever Tiles” - Patent application no.685/CHE/2011
Forever Tiles technology makes tile surface so hard that even repeated scratching by knife will only scratch and blunt the knife. This technology gives the tile surface a hardness which is equal to 80% of that of a diamond; the hardest material in the universe.
Tiles with Forever Tiles technology are great for very high traffic areas and those that are subject to rough use like shopping malls and outdoors. At the same time, due to their excellent and unique marbles, wood, stone, rustic and other texture designs and satin smooth surface, these tiles are well suited to indoor use too.
Forever Tiles are tested for their hardness
claim by Modena Centro Prove (MCP), Italy, Central Glass & Ceramic Research Institute (CGCRI), Ahmedabad and Bharat Test House, Delhi.
Products with Forever Tiles or FT technology were launched two years ago under both Orient and Bell brands and have sold very well. Forever Tiles made at North plant with digital printing technology were launched in March 2013 and have been accepted very well by the market. The company will launch digital Forever Tiles from its west and south plants in May 2013.
2. “GermFree Tiles” - Patent application no.440/CHE/2012
GermFree Tiles use Orient Bell’s proprietary technology in the glaze composition such that almost 100% harmful bacteria coming into contact with the tile surface are killed and therefore cannot multiply. This makes GermFree Tiles bacteria free tiles and keeps them cleaner for longer. GermFree tiles even have additional self cleaning properties, tested by Queens IPS Lab, UK.
The most amazing feature of GermFree Tiles is that they are absolutely safe to humans. In fact, they are 10 times safer to humans than what is expected of ceramic cookware under ISO norms. The company has test certificates in support of its Germ free claims from Sri Ram Institute for Industrial Research, Delhi, and Biotech Testing Services (BTS), Mumbai. In respect of its safety aspects, the tiles are tested by Centro Ceramico, Italy and Ceram, UK.
3. “Cool Tiles” - Patent application no. 4165/CHE/2012
Cool Tiles are invented by Orient Bell using an innovative glaze and process control method that makes the tiles an ultra cool roof and exterior surface solutions product by acquiring an unprecedented Solar Reflective Index (SRI) value of 103. This means not only do they reflect all solar heat but they also excel as a medium of emitting trapped heat. The requirement of cool roof required for LEAD certified buildings is an SRI of only 78 specified under US and Indian Green Building norms.
Cool Tiles when used on roof bring down inside building temperature by 10 to 20 degree Celsius. This in turn reduces air conditioning requirements; resulting in huge and recurring savings besides reducing global warming directly and indirectly. Cool Tiles are good for the environment and great to save power costs. To prove the effectiveness of Cool Tiles, the company is inviting anyone to write to or call it for arranging a demo.
One can calculate the savings of using SRI 103 tiles on roof oneself here coolroof.cbs.iiit.ac.in/calculator_detailed.php
. They normal savings for most of Indian cities and regions can range from over Rs 50 thousand p.a. to over Rs 1 crore p.a. depending upon the size, nature and location of the building.
Cool Tiles are tested for their amazing SRI value by Building Energy Performance Laboratory, Ahmedabad.
4. “Life Tiles” - Patent application no. 5553/CHE/2012
‘Life Tiles’ is an amazing dual technology that is really Clean and Green. Yet another innovation by Orient Bell, gives its patent pending Life Tiles, a photo catalytic and pollution neutralizing, germicidal and self cleaning properties all rolled into one.
Life Tile neutralize poisonous NOx and CO2 gases emitted by vehicles and generators and those release by burning fossil fuels. These gases make up the smog which is heavier than air. These dangerous gases cause severe respiratory, eye and many other problems in humans. When these gases come in contact with Life Tiles in the presence of Sun light or any UV light, the technology in Life Tiles, turn them into harmless moisture which then cannot be breathed. By removing poisonous gases, Life Tiles give the environment and your home cleaner air to breathe.
The quantum of removing the harmful gases achieved by 1000 square meter of Life Tiles is equivalent 400 trees or pollution caused by a car running over 50000 kms per year.
Life Tiles have also been tested to remove over 99.2% germs while being absolutely safe to humans. Life Tiles not only make the user healthy from outside by giving a cleaner air to breathe but also by protecting against other diseases.
Life Tiles also possess self cleaning property. Not only do they not get dirty easily; thanks to their germ free nature, but they also break down any dust that sticks to them by virtue of a self cleaning property.
Life Tiles have been tested for their Pollution neutralizing property by Queens IPS Lab, UK for their germ free property by Biotech Testing Services (BTS), Mumbai and their self cleaning property by Queens IPS Lab, UK.
