This cement-bonded tile differs from conventional marble composite tiles in the fact that it is made using a new manufacturing method: vibro-compacting under vacuum. As a result:
– the tiles are monolithic: a concrete layer is no longer necessary;
– the tiles have reduced porosity: 3.6-4 % instead of 6-7 %;
– the tiles are thinner (15mm) and precisely dimensioned.
Compact tiles can be laid conventionally in mortar or using adhesive on a sand-cement floor.
There is extensive range of available colours, consisting of tiles based on quartz or granite granules (for extremely heavy use) or marble granules (for normal use).
