PRODUCT DNA

Ceramic tiles are a natural product that have been used for centuries.
Thanks to research and technology, this ancient product has now reached new heights of excellence. Water, clay, minerals and powdered quartz fired together at high temperature - that's the basic structure of all our ceramic products, whatever their field of application.
And a certified production process ensures the excellence of every Cerdomus collection. The result is a product of exceptionally high quality in 4 key characteristics: hardness, rigidity, fragility and inertia. Hardness: the result of the chemical reactions which occur during firing, and which give tiles their compactness and consistency. Rigidity: determines the ability to withstand heavy loads. Fragility: defines resistance to impact. Inertia: the ability to remain unchanged over time, unaffected by contact with water and chemical substances.

 

WHAT IS PORCELAIN STONEWARE?

All Cerdomus collections are made using top-quality porcelain stoneware. This ceramic material represents today technological excellence and total functionality forany kind of projects. The process to produce porcelain stoneware follows the requirements of UNI standards and has obtained all due certifications. Porcelain stoneware is hard and compact; it is obtained from a mass of ground clays, feldspars, kaolins and sand that is turned into a mixture (slip), finely sprayed and then pressed. This paste is fired at temperatures reaching 1220 C° which causes the mixture to glazeand hence it becomes sturdy, impervious and lasts longer. On a technical note, UNI standards set the requirements for stoneware as a product featuring a water absorption 0.5% (UNI EN 176 ISO BI).

CERDOMUS TILES: EXCELLENCE IN TEN STEPS

01

Our tiles offer exceptional flexibility as they can be used in a vast range of applications: indoors and outdoors, in private homes and public buildings.


02

They are resistant to extreme atmospheric conditions, to chemical products, fire, flooding, humidity, variations in temperature and UV radiation. All these qualities make them ideal for use in situations exposed to severe environmental stress.


03

As a hygienic product, they are ideal for use in sterile environments. They do not absorb odours from smoke or fumes from paint and other contaminant substances, which means they help improve the air quality in interior environments.


04

They're simple to maintain: hot water and pH-neutral detergent are all that's needed to clean them. Ease of maintenance means reduced costs for the consumer.


05

They are inert and do not give off harmful fumes – therefore they do not add to the level of toxicity of detergent products which are disposed of in the ecosystem after use, such as solvents and chemical products.

06

They are non-toxic as they contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are emitted into the air before, during and after installation.


07

They help save on energy costs as they release the heat they absorb, acting like natural radiators to reduce heating costs.


08

They're long-lasting: the typical life span of a ceramic product is 50 years.


09

They contribute to energy savings: ceramic tiles are one of the best solutions for ventilated walls as they are mechanically robust and physically resistant to most of the atmospheric agents which cause deterioration. A building lined with our tiles can achieve gains in energy efficiency of up to 30%.


10

They have low environmental impact over their entire life span: from the moment of extraction of the raw materials to the disposal of used tiles, they are 100% recyclable.
