Vulcanika

A collection of porcelain tile designed to evoke the look of natural volcanic stone contrasting with glazed porcelain tile. In this collection, earth-toned matte natural basalt is designed to be juxtaposed with Raku, a colorful porcelain tile. A slight iridescence on the Raku tiles provides an additional layer of refinement and intrigue. The effect is an atmosphere of contrasting elements that, when combined, equals harmony. This collection also has 3-dimensional tiles that can be used on their own or paired with other materials from the collection.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

High

This material has relatively high abrasion resistance. It rates as a 7 or higher on the Mohs scale. Quartzite or granite typically fall into this range. This material is less likely to scratch than marble, limestone, onyx, slate, etc.

ABSORPTION

Low

This material is virtually non-porous. No sealer is required and it is less likely to stain.

ACID SENSITIVITY

Minimal

This material is minimally sensitive to acids. It will not acid etch or lose its surface sheen when exposed to acidic liquids such as lemons or tomatoes.

FREEZE-THAW

All Exteriors

Due to this material's Minimal or Moderate Absorption rating, its Abrasion Resistance rating, color fastness and tensile strength, this material is suitable for all exterior applications where freeze-thaw cycles are a concern. Use TCNA standards for setting in exteriors and consult an engineer regarding fastening systems and tensile strength required for your project.
