La Pietra Compattata

La Pietra Compattata is a one-of-a-kind, stone-look surfacing that represents the new frontier of sustainable tile. Made of a selection of natural raw materials recovered from the stone cutting process, the tiles meet strict criteria for green building including heat island reduction, recycled materials and packaging, and low-emitting materials.

After the raw materials including quartz, granite, and porphyry are crushed into a stone powder mixture, they are cold-pressed with cement binding into a uniquely textured, low-embodied energy, compact surfacing. The tiles are made in Italy of 60% recycled content through an environmentally friendly process that uses recycled water, manufacturing waste, and a simple drying process that eliminates CO2 emissions for cleaner air.

The collection comes in tumbled and matte finishes and an incredible range of sizes and shapes with color options ranging from neutral to vividly bright hues. Through the use of natural materials, the tile promotes wellness by creating a calming, grounded effect that helps connect the natural world to the built environment, a key component of biophilic design. As it can be used both and outdoors, it also enables designers to execute seamless integrated design concepts.

Frostproof, slip-resistant, salt-resistant, and high-compression resistant, the easy-to-clean surfacing is suitable for exterior cladding and pavers, interior walls and floors, wet areas, and areas with high commercial traffic.

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

Moderate

This material has a low to moderate absorption rate. Always seal this material prior to use. To reduce the appearance of stains, always wipe up spills immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the 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.
