Cement tiles description


** Most tile patterns are formed by 4 pieces to create the complete design.

Special and unique characteristics of handmade cement tiles:

All Original Mission Tile handmade cement tiles are built with three layers that can be seen in a crossection view.

First layer: 

The wear layer or tile face is a mixture of highly resistant portland white cement, powdered white marble and natural pigments. Wear resistance, color and brightness rely on the quality of this layer. Finished product has the natural finish surface and they can be polished or sealed. Any cement tiles are glazed.

Second layer:
It is a mortar made of fine sand and high qportland cement. For tile manufacturing, this mortar is applied as a base and reinforces the first layer, providing the ability to withstand compression loads which some times may be high for the finished product.

Third layer:
Is a porous mixture with the required thickness for impact strength before and after installation.

A good tile should be compact & waterproof, tiles are not glazed, which is accomplished by using mixtures rich in high quality cement, mechanically mixed and manufactured under high pressure. In addition, a thorough curing process is used to increase its strength.
