September 8, 2015

Casablanca, Morocco – To coincide with the Casablanca stop of Philips’ annual flagship Cape Town to Cairo roadshow, Philips, the world’s number one ironing brand, is introducing the PerfectCare Azur steam iron to the Moroccan market. Designed to ease the aggravation of ironing, the PerfectCare Azur is Philips’ fastest steam iron to date3, featuring a T-IonicGlide soleplate design, together with Philips’ unique and revolutionary OptimalTEMP technology and an innovative Double Active Calc Clean function.
The T-IonicGlide soleplate, provides a smooth and powerful steam ironing experience on all ironable fabrics; whereas Philips’ OptimalTEMP technology allows one to iron all the clothes at the same perfect temperature, ensuring a no burn guarantee on all fabrics, from jeans to silk shirts and eliminating the unnecessary stress of pre-sorting clothes or readjusting the iron’s temperature to change between items. Fast and effortless, yet still delivering great results on tough creases, OptimalTEMP technology is the latest revolution in ironing. 

Additionally, the PerfectCare Azur features an innovative Double Active Calc Clean system to reduce calc build up which often marks clothes with small white flakes. To guarantee great results, the internal Anti-Calc tablet is constantly active and does not need to be replaced. Meanwhile, the Calc-Clean function removes scale particles from the iron through the water tank reducing the need and time needed to re-wash affected fabrics.


Hicham Besri, General Manager, Personal Health, Philips Maghreb says: “We’re constantly looking to improve people’s ironing experience and the PerfectCare Azur provides people with our fastest steam ironing experience to date. With a T-IonicGlide soleplate, innovative OptimalTEMP technology, over 200g Steam Boost and a handy Double Active Calc Clean function, the Philips PerfectCare Azur provides a smooth, fast and effortless experience, meaning everyone can spend less time ironing and more time doing the things they enjoy.”
