Cromie

Cromie is a colored body ink jet printed porcelain tiles. With a carefully conceived color palette that ranges from warm to cool, Cromie is designed around the Natural Color System (NCS), a color notation system that classifies color according to the way the human eye perceives it. Unlike arbitrary numericsystems, NCS is capable of identifying and accurately notating any of the 10 million colors the eye can perceive. Relying on the six elementary colors (White, Black, Yellow, Red, Blue, Green), the NCS notation classifies a color in relation to each of the six elementary colors.

As an example, the NCS notation S 1050-Y90R would translate as follows: the letter S before the complete notation indicates that the color is part of the NCS Second Edition. The number 1050 indicates the shade (i.e. the amount of blackness (S) and the chromaticity (C)). In this case, the blackness, or darkness (S), is 10% and the chromaticity (C) is 50%. Y90R indicates the similarity to the other two elementary colors, Y (yellow) and R (red). Y90R indicates yellow with 90% of red.

Neutral gray tints have no shade (chromaticity equals 0) and are notated by the nuance followed by -N, as it is neutral color. 0300-N is white, followed by 0500-N, 1000-N, 1500 N, etc. up to 9000-N, which is black.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Cromie is a series of through-body porcelain tiles and decorative glazed tiles. With a carefully conceived color palette that ranges from warm to cool, Cromie is designed around the Natural Color System (NCS), a color notation system that classifies color according to the way the human eye perceives it.

  • Standard Maintenance: Fila Cleaner
  • Special Maintenance: Fila PS/87
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.
