Today, slim is in. And Tile of Spain branded manufacturers have embraced this newest technological focus to create an ideal building
and remodeling solution: slim tile. At a quarter
of an inch thick—conceptually, a solid surface ceramic laminate—it saves time, hassle, and represents a landmark in sustainable design.
It makes perfect sense. Reduce the thickness of the tile as much as possible while still maintaining the mechanical requirements suitable for wall installations. And, improve the ecological benefits to boot.
Fewer raw materials are used and maximum energy savings are realized during manufacturing. This reduces CO2 emissions and pollutant substances. Lighter weight also means less of an environmental footprint left in shipping. And since it can be installed directly over existing tile, there’s no need to landfill the old stuff!
Additionally, digital printing innovation allows Spanish tile manufacturers to replicate virtually any finish, texture or look yet retain the unparalleled functional advantages of ceramic tile. Imagine achieving the patina of weathered corten steel in a light, high-performance tile. Less weight for the building structure to support opens new avenues for design—inside and out.
