The charm of ancient stone, fashioned and polished by the passage of time and people, are united with a contemporary and innovative interpretation that are in all Novoceram products. The colors and infinite shades of natural stones give the ceramic tiles inspired by them a unique personality and a bold character. The stones are from quarries in France, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium and other countries that are near and far afield, and are a tremendous source of inspiration that give indoor and outdoor floors a natural authentic flair. Novoceram uses the best production technologies, which means that we are able to reproduce with, extraordinary accuracy, the aesthetic detail as well as the materic strength of the natural stone. Therefore, it is possible to merge the charm of the stone with the exceptional resistance-qualities and ease of maintenance of porcelain stoneware.
Porcelain stoneware does not absorb water. The stone-effect ceramics can therefore be installed without fear of problems in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in a spa or even in a swimming-pool!
Tremendous resistance to wear and scratches
While some types of stone can be relatively resistant to wear and scratches, porcelain stoneware is one of the materials that offers the best performance from this point of view.
Porcelain stoneware is a vitrified material with practically no porosity, which is resistant to virtually all attacks from chemicals. Irrespective of the type of stone reproduced, stains do not penetrate, they remain on the surface and, even if they dry, they are easy to clean.
Frost resistant and resistant to adverse weather conditions
Ceramic stone is completely frost-resistant and resistant to adverse weather conditions and can therefore be used safely outdoors. However, it would be wise to select the most suitable product for the destination use on the basis of the anti-slip features, thickness and installation technique.
Withstands the passage of time
Ceramic is an extremely resistant inert material that does not undergo change or deterioration over time.
Guaranteed aesthetic result
Ceramic stone has almost the same amount of diversity as natural stone, but when choosing a Stone Effect Ceramic, you know exactly what the results are going to be after, so you therefore have complete control of the final aesthetic result of your floor.
All items are produced in accordance with an environmentally friendly production procedure and in complete compliance with a certified environmental management system. Novoceram endeavors to constantly better its system in order to reduce, day by day, the impact on the environment.
Easy to clean
Irrespective of the chosen look, daily cleaning of ceramics can be easily carried out with a cloth and a little warm water.
Can be cleaned with aggressive products
If, when carrying out daily maintenance of the porcelain stoneware, the use of some warm water is sufficient, when it becomes necessary to perform a deeper more thorough cleaning, this can be carried out with complete peace of mind using more aggressive cleaning agents.
