The granito tiles MOSAIC factory are pigmented cement with glass and marble chips. Creative and resistant.
The Granito tile or fine-grained Terrazzo is a very resistant patterned flooring material that has been derived from the traditional encaustic cement tile. Marble and tainted glass chips reinforce the top layer. This allows for abrasive polishing to level the tiles once laid, or to restore aged and damaged floors back to their original beauty. The main patterns and designs of cement tiles can be also manufactured in Granito, in a square shape in 20x20cm to 30x30cm and hexagonal. The Granito is poured into a mould with a metal divider and hydraulically pressed. It then takes a couple of weeks for the product to dry and harden completely. The last stage is factory polishing, unveiling the individual splendour of the pigmented cement, marble and glass mix in the pattern.
The Granito in comparison to cement tiles is resistant to abrasive polishing due to the chips in the coloured layer. This means that this floor can be polished if it has been damaged, has aged or has lost its beauty. Finally, the installation and maintenance are more simple. Due to these characteristics, Granito flooring can be used for heavy traffic spaces.
