In-Essence

In-Essence is a series of ink-jet porcelain tile that references the past while offering a modern product. Inspired by the layered, worn look of salvaged materials, the series takes its aesthetic cues from natural stone, industrial cement found on factory floors and the turn-of-the-century advertisements that were once painted on buildings. Its rectified edges give it a modern appearance. Composto Grigio and Composto Sabbia are field tiles that reproduce the imperfections and patina that are typical of worn natural stone that has been repaired with cement. Noce Ossidata and Quercia Ossidata mimic the look of aged wood including tannin stains and the dings and scratches that might be left by tools. Miscela Grigio and Miscela Sabbia are a combination of the two, blending the look of distressed wood and natural stone.

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.
