Handcrafted in Britain, RUSTILES are made of metal particles and Jesmonite, a composite consisting of a water based acrylic and gypsum. The tiles are available in nine different shades of colours over two different tile sizes. All colours are only originating from different metal particles mix, and various oxidation techniques that Prin has been developing over the years. The oxidation process is intrinsic to the beauty of the RUSTILES.
The RUSTILES are not varnished, to add stain and abrasion resistance, the surfaces may require a top coat sealer prior to grouting (case by case basis). The type of Jesmonite used achieves a Class 0 fire rating, reduced smoke density and toxicity characteristics. It is also solvent free with no VOC’s.
