the manufacture of cement tiles

The structure of the tile, of about 2cm thick, is divided in 3 parts: The thinnest part is the decorated surface of in between 3 and 4mm thick, and is composed of a mixture of white cement, marble sand and the pigments. These solid pigments are mixed with water, giving way to a dense solution which is poured in to the color separator mold, to form the desired design. The second layer, the “brassatage”, with the same thickness as the pigmented layer, is composed of a mixture of grey cement and sand; it´s function is to absorb the excess water from the outer layer. The third and last layer, the thickness of the tile, is composed by solid cement with the slightest proportion of sand, it’s porosity eases the adherence to the floor during during placement and it’s solidness guarantees the longevity of the tile.

They are also ideal for wall placement. Their texture and craftsmanship can dress any wall in a unique way, combining colors and design.
