Cement tiles with your favourite colours

Traditional handmade cement tiles offer many individual creative possibilities, give quite an exceptional atmosphere to various living spaces and draw our attention as to their beautiful colours and varied patterns.

Diversity with cement tiles

Cement tiles combine the optics of smooth tiled floors with a cosy home feeling. Cement tile floors are warm and have a velvety texture. Due to their heat-accumulating quality the approx. 1.6 cm thick tiles are much better suited for underfloor heating than wood.

Cement tiles can be found not only in private homes, but also in the catering trade and in the public sector.

Short history of the cement tiles

Cement tiles have been produced and used, above all in France, since the second half of the 19th century. Thanks to their pleasant qualities (long durability, extraordinary optics, individual creative possibilities) cement tiles soon spread throughout Europe and found, in particular, their way into manor houses, castles and churches. In Germany cement tiles experienced a real impetus, especially in the Jugendstil era.

Cement tiles from traditional craftsmanship – made in Europe

Already in the third generation, traditional handmade cement tiles are being produced in our manufacture in Spain following a more than 200 year-old art-craft procedure. All materials come from Andalucia.

Production of cement tiles

  1. A mold with the desired pattern is put in a precision frame on a smooth-polished level metal surface.
  2. The colour blendings, made of marble powder, white cement and colour pigments, are filled according to the desired distribution in the pattern into the single fields of the mold. Then, the mold is taken away.
  3. A dry sandy cement mixture is raised directly on the coat of colour and absorbs the moisture.
  4. The last layer, the underside of the finished cement tile, also consists of sand and cement.
  5. In a hydraulic press, the cement tile is hardened, then taken from the form and must dry for one day.
  6. The cement tile is layed in a water bath for another day and must then dry for aprox. 25 days.
