48×48 rectified polished porcelain tile from Italy
Realistic marble optics were produced by a high-detail inkjet printer, rectified edges and a next-generation polish. Although polished tiles have been around for ages, The Elite features a new technique that includes a sophisticated process that adds value. Such a luxurious finish can only be found in high-end European large-format tiles and makes tile much harder than traditional high-gloss glazed tiles. Because of this increased density, the shine level of the tile is above traditionally polished porcelain tiles. Finally the tile undergoes a nano-seal process that increases surface friction, reducing slipperiness.
Benefits of 48×48 tiles include ease of covering shower stalls, as well as reduced grout seams.
