Available in two slim format sizes, with every tile being unique in both colour and texture.

Technical

Our materials are wet cast and then sintered, this is a unique classification for British Standards. The nearest classification would be ceramic tiles. Formal test certificates are available on request.

Care & Maintenance

Silicastone products are easy to care for and can be left in their natural state in many cases. However, depending on your chosen application it may be necessary to periodically apply a surface sealant to the product.

Installation

Most of our products are, by their nature quite heavy, akin to natural stone. Weights will vary depending on product but they can weigh up to 45kg per m2, so we only recommend installing on a suitable substrate.

Sustainability

Our products are made from no less than 98% recycled materials and approximately 60% of those materials currently ends up in landfill. For some of our coloured ranges we need to add materials that are not recycled, but our products are always more than 94% recycled.
