Authentic Spanish Mission Tiles

All of our tiles are built with three layers that can be seen in a crossection view.

The first layer: The wear layer or tile face is a mixture of highly resistant Portland
white cement, powdered white marble and colorants. Wear resistance, color and brightness rely on the quality of this layer.

The second layer: It is a mortar made of fine sand and standard Portland gray cement. For tile manufacturing, this mortar is applied as a base and reinforces the first layer, providing the ability to withstand compression loads which some times may be high for the finished product.

The third layer: Is a porous mixture with the required thickness for impact strength before and after installation.

A good tile should be absolutely compact & waterproof which is accomplished by using mixtures rich in high quality cement, mechanically mixed and manufactured under high pressure. In addition, a thorough curing process is used.

This product is 100% hand crafted, paying attention to individual design and color specifications. The tile is not a pollutant because it is manufactured with 100% natural materials.
