Lombardy Anthracite wall & floor tile 30x60cm (Turkey).
A multiuse porcelain tile with a frost-proof glaze, rectified edges and matt lustre finish. The Lombardy Anthracite is a digitally printed stone-effect tile which imitates natural anthracite, a type of dark grey marble with soft highlights. As a fully glazed porcelain tile, the Lombardy Anthracite does not require sealing and is suitable for use with underfloor heating and in all domestic uses.
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, like the Lombardy Anthracite, 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.
As a recitifed tile, the Lombardy Anthracite 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.
VitrA is a Turkish manufacturer which takes its name from the word "vitrify", meaning to create something in the likeness of glass. VitrA has been producing ceramics for the domestic market since 1942 when the Second World War meant Turkey struggled to import goods. Following continued growth in the subsequent years, VitrA launched itself internationally in 1983 and is now sold in over 75 countries around the world.
