Congoleum Tile Adds Space-Age Materials to Limestone
Congoleum Corporation (Booth W2259) will be showing attendees at next month’s International Builders’ Show in Orlando an upscale and versatile “engineered ceramic” that it says is the first true invention in flooring in more than 150 years.
Featuring the look of stone and clay palettes with stainless steel, copper and brass, DuraCeramic delivers the look of a high-end ceramic tile floor, yet features benefits totally unavailable in conventional ceramic tile, says Congoleum. Specifically, DuraCeramic is warmer and softer to the touch than ceramic, quiet and comfortable underfoot and extremely easy to maintain in both residential and light commercial settings.
DuraCeramic combines extra-thick limestone and space-age materials in a patented composite that resists cracking, breaking and chipping. The tough surface glaze incorporates nylon particles and nano-composite (molecule-size) aluminum oxide particles for superior durability and a virtually stain-proof floor.
The tile can be installed either with traditional grout using quick-drying acrylic grout or without grout for a modern, tailored look. Because it is an engineered composite material, traditional mortar setting materials and special wet saws, required for ceramic and porcelain tile, are not necessary, making it possible to set and group the floor all in one day.
Tiles in 16” squares result in dramatic upscale patterns. The addition of 8” tiles, especially in combination with the larger versions, opens up design possibilities – including checkerboard, diagonal and diamond shapes, weaves, insects, random patterns, borders and more.
