Many customers come into our showrooms with the idea of buying natural stone (marble, travertine, limestone, slate) for their tile project. Once we begin to educate them on the care and maintenance involved with porous stones you can see that desire begin to fade. Having to seal the tile once a year or face the possibility of it staining often brings the question: what do you have that looks like natural stone but does not need to be sealed and will not stain? Enter High Definition Porcelain or HDP from Florida Tile. HDP utilizes the most technically advanced glazing system in the industry today, digital printing. Like the technology that changed the television industry, HDP brings the most realistic image possible, except it is on a tile. The hardest thing to reproduce on a tile is the large variation that comes with natural stones. The High Definition Porcelain uses 500 injectors to print the largest variety of shades, veins and textures in the industry today. This process allows for a production pattern that is not repeated for up to 180 square feet or more. This is 8 times the variation of conventional tile printing machines. This creates a porcelain that is virtually undistinguishable from natural stone. To see these ground breaking tiles check out our website www.stdtile.com or visit your local Standard Tile location.
