A few more tips:
1. The tiles have different sizes. To facilitate their application, we advise you to use tiles of the same caliber.
2. Individual batch are slightly different from one another. So when buying the plates you must pay attention to their tone. We recommend you to buy plates with the same tone.
3. Distortion of surface / in contrast to the ideal plane / property-the tile. Therefore a positive / less than 90 degrees / or negative / greater than 90 degrees / bending of the slab does not appear as a defect!! But assuming that a strong deviation from the plane to prevent the laying of tiles, manufacturer sorts them according to established norms for the normal curvature of the tile biscuit
Thank you for your choice!.
Type of pearl glaze with overflow / color or colorless /. This effect is achieved as follows: type of metal resin / rezinati-type material / applied on the surface of the glaze and fired as a result of which form a thin glaze layer and refracted light rays.
The ability of ceramics to withstand repeated consecutive frozen and thawed without any signs of damage. Index of frost, it is the quantity of these cycles, which lasts a tile without damage.
Technology SALI SOLUBILI
From Italy .- “soluble salts” – innovative Italy. technology with which to produce polished porcelain tiles with patterns. Provides more vivid colors, vivid pattern on the plate and elegant luster.
This is a means of decoration in which a pattern plate is applied with paint through a mesh pattern. Through a template can be applied to only 1 type of paint. For multicolor printing is used 2, 3 or more templates. Tiles that are filled with this method resemble one another as photos taken from the same negative!
Features and advantages of porcelain gres:
Low water absorption
Porcelain possesses a very low porosity and, consequently, water absorption, 0.05% unique to the porcelain gres and tile and not available for ceramic tile or natural stone.
Increased wear resistance
Porcelain is a very high degree of resistance to aggressive environments and wear / PEI Scale 5 /
It is very difficult to scratch the tiles with something. Perhaps the only diamond. This means that the hardness of the porcelain gres is about 8 points on the Moohs scale, one of the highest on Earth. Gres also resistant to shock loads and pressure.
Resistance to temperature extremes.
From -50 to +50 degrees C did not affect the properties of gres. That is why gres indispensable material for ventilated facades. Resistance to temperature change that is due to the high density and uniformity of porcelain gres.
In the manufacture of gres using only pure materials. It does not emit any harmful substances and in honor of his brother-natural granite, no radio.
Red clay, this is fine sediment, which becomes plastic when wet. Color is often gray, but there are also white, sand or red depending on the composition of components. Red clay acquires its color due to iron oxide. Natural color of red clay is greenish-brown mass.
White clay, this is a compound of oxides of silicon and aluminum with a small amount of water. This type of clay used for obtaining, sanitary ware and porcelain as well, as for production of tiles, are often not natural and specially prepared.
