Ceramic tiles

 

 

TONALITY® ceramic tiles are a high-quality, highly resistant and robust cladding material for façades. The tiles come in a wide range of surface options ranging from through-coloured natural surface structures (Classic, Natural) to glazed surfaces in various colours (Colour). Just like ceramic roof tiles, these tiles are resistant to fire, alkalis, acids, parasites, water and mechanical impact.

Production process:

Ceramic TONALITY® façade tiles, manufactured by the German company Creaton AG, are made of natural clay mixed with water. The clay is extracted from a site near the production facility and then processed, dried and stored in warehouses. The tiles are manufactured from three different colour clays (red, brown and white). A mix of clay and water is pressed with special equipment in order to remove air bubbles. The clay is pressed so that it takes on the shape of a tile. Depending on the design of the tile, the piece of clay is then cut into pieces of appropriate length. The product is dried for several hours. The surface of the tile is processed. The prepared tiles are then fired in a kiln at temperatures of up to 1250 °C. When the firing process is over, the tiles are cooled and undergo quality control. Only then are they released for sale into the market.

Tiles with a grooved surface or pilaster strip can also be produced upon request.

Tile characteristics:

  • Fire-resistant;
  • Resistant to atmospheric impact, frost, acids and alkalis;
  • Water-resistant;
  • Resistant to mould, dirt and parasites;
  • UV-resistant with great colour retention;
  • Resistant to mechanical impact;
  • Anti-graffiti protection (Special Finish series);
  • Especially light-weight;
  • Invisible and very economic fixing system (fastener profile);
  • Can be installed under any weather conditions.
