HEX and REC pressed full body vitrified porcelain tiles are made of selected raw materials (including clay) to obtain a powder that is pressed under high pressure in steel molds and then fired at high temperature. This method of manufacture gives the tiles a high level of dimensional stability.
Due to their high resistance to acids and chemicals, HEX and REC tiles are mainly designed for industrial flooring. Their very high resistance to mechanical and thermal shocks, their low water absorption rate make these pressed tiles ideal for use in the food industry (dairies, cheese factories, canneries, breweries, etc…). Thanks to their high resistance to wear and easy maintenance, they are also suitable for use in heavily used buildings. HEX and REC series tiles are frost resistant.
The low water absorption of ceramic tiles also gives them a high resistance to stains, for easier floor maintenance.
To maximize the life of your tile coverings, we recommend the use of our complete range of antacid mortars (Primers, adhesive mortar FB67 or FB30 or OS1500, break joint FB50…) specially designed to fulfill your needs.
