Palissandro Azul rectified porcelain tile 30x60cm by Ceramica Rondine (Italy).
An Italian porcelain stoneware tile with an R10 anti-slip rating, rectified edges, frost-proof finish and matt glaze suitable for walls and floors. As a digitally printed stone-effect tile, the Palissandro Azul imitates natural quarried marble characterised by striking layers of blue and grey veins without the inherent variation found in natural products. It is a hard-wearing and durable tile suitable for all domestic and commerical uses. Large porcelain tiles like this can open up a smaller room because of fewer grout lines.
A rectified tile is a tile which has been mechanically cut to an exact size. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles can be rectified but it is typically more common with large porcelain floor tiles. Tiles that are not rectified can have very slight variations in size so rectification produces exact facial dimensions with more precise and narrow grout lines when tiling.
Tiles classified as an anti-slip floor tile are assigned an ‘R’ value which runs along a scale from R9 (not tested but manufactured to a minimum standard) all the way through to R13 (the highest slip resistance). Tiles with an R10 anti-slip rating like the Palissandro Azul are better suited to dry domestic areas such as kitchens.
Frost-proof tiles are an important consideration for rooms where the temperature may drop below zero such as utility rooms and conservatories. Tiles with a frost-proof glaze have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5% meaning they are ideal for such conditions. Tiles which are not frost-proof may absorb water which would freeze at zero and below, causing the tile to crack.
Ceramica Rondine has been producing beautiful porcelain stoneware tiles since 1961. Through several industrial acquisitions of specialist tile manufacturers, Ceramica Rondine has been able to broaden its range and assume complete control over its own production to guarantee absolute quality.
