Ancient wisdom in a modern clay wall from Japan

ECOCARAT has its roots in the traditional method of clay wall construction, which is most suitable for the climate of Japan.With the elements of clay as a solid foundation, ECOCARAT keeps evolving through LIXIL’s years of research and technological advances in tile baking. It is an eco-friendly material that promotes zero energy homes and helps to maintain a healthy living environment.

Nanotechnology for a breathable tile

ECOCARAT breathes with tiny holes. These pores are only one nanometer (1/1,000,000 of a millimeter) in size, which is best for absorbing of moisture and odors. This technology has reached a stage that is invisible to the eye.

Since there are innumerable fine pores, ECOCARAT is a better air purifier than diatomaceous earth.

ECOCARAT maintains an ideal humidity level so that the growth of molds and mites can be inhibited.

Mites and molds can multiply quickly when the humidity level rises to 80% or above.
ECOCARAT maintains a humidity of between 40% and 70%, making it difficult for molds and mites to reproduce. At this humidity level, dry throat and dry skin can also be prevented, which helps to create a comfortable indoor environment.

Walls and bedding in the bedroom can get moldy during the period from rainy season to summer, when the humidity rises sharply. By using ECOCARAT, the musty smell is gone and the beds are no longer damp. We can finally get good night’s sleep.

A house is like an incubator for all kinds of smells, some of which are indeed quite unpleasant.
ECOCARAT absorbs the components that cause the various odors. It substantially reduces them, or even gets rid of them completely.

Toilet odor can now be removed.

Undoubtedly, the four worst odors in our daily lives come from our toilets, kitchen waste, cigarettes, and pets.
ECOCARAT absorbs the components of all these odors, offering a deodorizing effect stronger than diatomaceous earth.

ECOCARAT helps to remove odors that ventilation alone cannot eliminate.

Delicious smells of meat, fish, and vegetables are welcoming, especially when spice is added to give them a delightful flavor. But it is not good to have the smells stay overnight as they will turn bad and linger the next day. ECOCARAT can quickly absorb the nasty odors left by the food, giving you a refreshing morning every day.
