Wood, stone, marble, concrete, resin: every type looks different, allowing users to choose the right option for the intended context and the style required.
One factor often underestimated is the day-to-day management of coverings, making the care of ceramic tile floors a value-added feature that should be borne in mind.
People often imagine that ceramic tiles are just a poor imitation of what nature offers.
But nowadays, with full HD digital printing, they are able to provide outstanding results, with the reproduction of extremely realistic patterning and effects, combining an attractive appearance with the very easy, convenient care of ceramic tile floors.
Natural elements are given new interpretations and colours, expressing the various materials’ character while giving them the technical properties of ceramic tiles.
It is the combination of a number of technical factors that makes the care of ceramic tile floors easier than that of other products. Here are a few of them:
• in the production cycle, the tile is fired at 1200°, creating a compact, sintered surface with closed pores, unlike natural stones, which have open pores and require regular treatments to seal the pores, which trap dirt. Ceramic tiles do not stain, and maintain this characteristic over time
• water absorption of less than 0.5% and pressing at 500 kg per square centimetre give the ceramic tile resistance to thermal shocks and impacts
• the ceramic tile’s surface protection is active immediately, without additional treatments after laying, thanks to glazing with glass-like frits which create a protective barrier against dirt, which can be washed away with an ordinary household cleaner
Now you have only to choose the tile best suited to your design requirements, with no need to worry about any additional procedures apart from installation, and no requirement for further treatments at preset intervals.
A major advantage for the creation of simple, convenient living spaces.
