Portugal• Floor-tile 100% in-house recycled material, reduced packaging, eco-font• Multifunctional sets for cooking, refrigerating and serving food, elimination of the final firing step• No toxics in glazing or pigments• High performance bricks
Greece• Recycled raw materials in the paste• Non-toxic pigments and glazing• Lower firing temperature• Porcelain water sink with filtering system for soap• Ceramic lamp with LED light
SpainCERACASA developed a ceramic tile called “Ecom4tile”• With ECOM4Tile ® pavement you can save over 16% in electricity bills.• The second property of ECOM4Tile ® is the comfort that achieved in interiors. The ceramic surface with this new invention, achieves nearly equal to its temperature with the temperature conditioned• he third characteristic is the easy cleaning thanks to a treatment that reduces maintenance and destroys stains that are deposited on the surface for easy cleaning• Finally, ceramics ECOM4Tile ® has a biocidal treatment that kills bacteria and reduces odor-causing. A real advantage for any home with animals, public buildings, bathrooms, kitchens, hotels ...CARTONAJES LA PLANA: packaging – problems with large pieces and complicated formats´
