Flow

Flow is a collection of through body porcelain tiles designed for floors and walls. The idea behind this design is to preserve traces of the creation process within the surface of the ceramic material. Perhaps the most significant, spectacular element is the moment the material is poured into the moulds. This creates a texture with an irregular pattern. The distinctively uneven features are an invitation to observe the effects of light on the surface, to rediscover the flows and circular movements that lie within the primary imprinting process. Its aesthetic qualities and technical features make Flow ideal for both floors and walls, indoors and out.

Flow, like other materials in the Mutina offering, is designed to be juxtaposed to other collections, making it possible to have a harmonic contrast of both industrial and handmade textures. Mutina favors neutral color palettes, consisting of white, black, ivory and shades of gray.

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.
