Ripietra tiles look like natural stone, but are completely made of recycled material. The composite material is produced by extrusion and moulding, consisting of 55% polyethylene derived from urban waste and 45% of wood derived from industrial processing waste. The material is sturdy and weather resistant: it does not deform under the sun and does not freeze, for instance. Furthermore, the material is resistant to chemical agents and does not require maintenance. The tiles are anti slip and, if they are sunk into the ground, stand vehicle traffic. The tiles, available in one size and one colour only, are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Ripietra is 100% recycled and 100% recyclable.
