Surface coming from manufacturing pressed tiles without further work after firing.
STRUCTURED / TEXTURED
Surface coming from manufacturing pressed tiles, using a rough pad with variable intensity (from a slightly undulating one to inspired cut stone), without processing after firing.
Surface coming from manufacturing tiles subjected to mechanical processing consisting of irregularly removing a layer of material after pressing but before firing in order to obtain a surface like an absolutely pure natural stone (non-slip), with slight unrepeatable differences between one tile and another.
Surface coming from manufacturing pressed tiles, with a smooth or structured pad, subjected to intermediate intensity mechanical processing, with little removal of the material after firing to give the surface a smooth and slightly glazed finish, polished but not reflecting.
GLOSSY / SHINY
Surface obtained after firing subjecting the slabs to mechanical brushing and polishing with a series of decreasing grain abrasive utensils. The final surface is soft, glossy and reflective.
SMOOTH / SATIN
Surface obtained after firing subjecting unglazed slabs to intermediate intensity mechanical brushing with smooth or wavy die. The final surface is soft, slightly satin-finished, non-reflective.
Surface coming from manufacturing pressed tiles, with a smooth pad, subjected to a strong mechanical processing of strong intensity, with removing a significant amount of material, after firing, making the product particularly bright.
POINT AND CANNETÈ
Surface resulting from the manufacturing of a tile pressed with a non-smooth pad featuring regular geometrical embossing with increasing intensity, with no further processing after firing.
Surface obtained from the production of tiles with the appropriately shaped die in order to achieve precise safety characteristics measured based on the main prevailing regulatory methods in use. The final surface is slightly rough, matt and complies with R10 slipperiness requirements (reference standard DIN 51130) and Pendulum slipperiness >36 wet (slider 96, reference standard BS 7976 –AS/NZS 4586).
