Ceramic tiles are the most mainstream decision for home decoration of a bathroom, kitchen, hallway, and other facilities, as they are among the most durable finishing materials and also easy to clean. The only minor drawback to most types of ceramic or porcelain tile is that after a while, the colors and format of the coated surface can get dull, and changing the coating is quite expensive. But manufacturers of finished ceramics do not stand still; innovative products regularly appear on the market that break our stereotypes.
- Rainbow Tiles:
Inspired by the excellence of the Northern Lights, the designers at moving color have developed a mosaic that changes color when exposed to water. At room temperature, glass tiles are black, but if jets of warm water are directed on them, the coating begins to glow with all the colors of the rainbow.
- 3D Textured Tiles:
Modern interactive tiles from the factory will perfectly complement any interior styling solution. The manufacturer is inclined to believe that the textured 3D tile collections are suitable for decorating not only the kitchen and bathroom but also the bedroom and living room. The versatile and durable tiles have deep relief and attract attention through the play of light and shadow. our collection offers a finer textured surface that reflects light in different ways to create a visual “vibrate” effect.
- Custom tiles:
Indian tiles manufacturing company provides an interesting service: print any image on ceramic tile. The method is based on a chemical phenomenon such as dye-sublimation, a process in which a solid turns into a gas without experiencing the liquid phase. Solid-state ink turns to vapor when heated, and the image is applied to a molten polymer (polyester) substrate using special equipment. Personal ImageSnap tiles are available in glossy and matte finishes and can be installed as a decoration for the wall covering or placed separately, even in the refrigerator. But the most remarkable thing is that there is no need to go anywhere to obtain such a mosaic; the company has its own representative office on the Internet. Anyone can upload their photo through a special form on the website, choose the format and type of surface, pay for the order, and after a while, receive a personal photo-mosaic by mail. Prices are relatively affordable.
- Golden Dune Tiles:
Nothing screams glamor like gold tiles. The luxurious Damasco collection from the Indian company is capable of leaving an indelible impression on the viewer. Long, rectangular, gold bathroom tiles with a glossy and matte finish are available in over 1000 variations to create any environment and achieve the desired effect. The Indian company prides itself on its advanced technologies in the production of facing ceramics, the use of innovative designers, and specialized chemistry for the production of finished products.
- Tetris Tiles:
Traditional tiles are being replaced by a fun and colorful alternative: Tetris tiles. You no longer have to worry about looking for a bathroom coating and choosing any shade. The most popular game tile is great for use in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. Any place chosen to fight will transform before our eyes. And most importantly: there are endless options to finish with such original tiles.
- Backlit Tiles:
Suppose you are still looking for something new that can surprise your friends and acquaintances, pay attention to the products of the Indian company. Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest, and lighting through a cutout in ceramic tile is no exception. Yet Fiandre interprets this concept with such elegance and beauty that there is no limit to admiration. The company’s designers offered a flexible approach to this topic – the appearance can be absolutely anything – with floral and geometric motifs, abstract, and almost futuristic. Backlit tiles can add an inimitable personality and a touch of magic to the surrounding space. Graniti Fiandre products are veneering ceramics with exciting new innovations.
- Talking tile:
The Indian company, together with the inventor Pep Torres, have developed a “dietary” ceramic floor, on which weight sensors and a processor are mounted that controls various parameters. This is able to detect specific people in the database and record their activities. But most importantly, you can yell at a specific tenant with different messages depending on the person and task at hand. For example, if you notice that the floor often freezes in front of the refrigerator, then you are guaranteed to hear in your direction: “Stop eating, fat!” How about this perspective? The boss knows your every move in the office: how long you spent on a smoke break, how long you stayed near the fridge or coffee maker, etc. Also, you can’t guess that they are watching you! Joking aside, such a development may find application in security systems and in some companies that want to confidentially monitor their employees.
- Disappearing Tiles:
At first glance, this tile, used primarily in landscape design, is unremarkable and resembles a common sidewalk. But as soon as a little rain passes, various floral patterns bloom on its surface. These tiles are especially relevant in countries where it rains often.
Polymer Floor Surfaces:
Polymer self-leveling floors are high-tech and modern types of floor surfaces, the performance properties of which are several times superior to traditional materials: asphalt, linoleum, concrete, etc., features.
Modern self-leveling floors do not slip, do not generate dust, are easy to clean and operate; their appearance has excellent aesthetics. Self-leveling floor surfaces are even, smooth, and can have a certain degree of roughness (providing slip resistance). Self-leveling polymer surfaces are very durable. This type of floor is resistant to mechanical loads, blows, has excellent adhesion properties, a high degree of resistance, and elasticity.
- Thin-set polymer flooring:
They are 250 to 300 microns thick. They are recommended for terminals, warehouses, parking lots, industrial workshops. In the room where they sit, medium power mechanical loads are desirable; such coatings prevent dust formation on concrete bases, protect cement, concrete floors from chemically aggressive environments, and give industrial floors a decorative look external.
- Very filled polymer surfaces:
They are 3 to 4 mm thick, stronger, and more durable (fractional quartz filler is added to the composition). They are designed for rooms that experience the greatest impact, mechanical stress to ensure the highest resistance to abrasion.
- Laying bulk surfaces: stages and technologies:
The initial step is to prepare the rough surface to ensure a high degree of adhesion. This is achieved by examining the rough surface: it must be free of potholes, holes, and cracks, the base must be clean, free of stains from oils, fuels, and lubricants, bitumens, paints, latex, chemicals, bitumens. With the use of a special brush, everything unnecessary is removed from the rough base. You can then use a sponge or damp mop. The floor must be totally dry prior to applying the polymer coat.
- Concrete floor Preparation:
To ensure a solid surface of the polymer composition, weak areas of concrete must be mechanically removed. There are good reasons why you shouldn’t immediately install a self-leveling coating on a freshly poured concrete floor. During the hardening of concrete, cracks may appear on its surface. And if, in a given period of time, the coating was already equipped on such an immature concrete base, this will lead to the appearance of cracks on the pouring surface. It is important to apply the primer on an absolutely dry surface; then, the primer can penetrate deeper into the base. In this way, the maximum adherence of concrete floors and self-leveling polymers will be achieved. After 28 days, you can perform a primer, equip a polymer coating.
Concrete Preparation Methods to Avoid:
Solvents Not recommended for use. When using solvents, oil and other contaminants can penetrate deep into the concrete layer; after a while, they return to the surface, thus reducing adhesion. Acid pickling (acid washing). This process is difficult to control; this method cannot completely remove contamination (formation of precipitation on surfaces). Acids can also penetrate concrete pores. Result: the reinforcement will rust, thus reducing the useful life of the floor. Such washing can not remove the bead of lubricants, oils.
