Streamline multiuse stone-effect tile 40x80cm by Yurtbay Seramik (Turkey).
A porcelain wall and floor tile with a matt finish and frost-proof glaze. Using high-definition inkjet technology and digital printing, the Streamline imitates brecciated stone with layered veins but without the inherent variation found in natural products.
A growing demand combined with modern manufacturing has lead to the availability of affordable large format tiles. Also known as XL tiles, or simply “big” tiles, they create an illusion of space in busy homes as bigger tiles means fewer grout lines. They are ideal for open-plan kitchens, dining areas, living rooms and conservatories. Large format tiles may require two people for fitting and should be back-buttered to ensure that suitable contact with the tile is achieved. We recommend trowelling the substrate with a thick solid bed trowel (usually 12mm).
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.
Yurtbay Seramik was founded by Zeki Yurtbay over 50 years ago as a brick and roof tile manufacturer before turning to ceramics in 1995. Yurtbay manufactures and distributes tiles under a single brand name and now exports tiles to over 50 countries.
