These tiles are produced in Italy, the country of tile production. Typical is the small size of these tiles. The colours are quiet and the pastel shades are finely tuned to each other. The relief structured borders and decorative tiles are opulently ornamented and constitute a nice contrast. With our tile range MODENA you can create timelessly beautiful wall pictures.
The tiles feature slight irregularities in colour and shape - this constitutes their special appeal. Especially the darker colours exhibit an intense colour play and significant colour sequences.
The glazes ivory (07), fern (08) and magnolia (10) feature a fine craquelé structure, i.e. these tiles exhibit fine crazes which make up a special depth-effect. Because of these crazes, craquelé tiles are prone to absorp water over time. It is advisable to impregnate the tiles before laying to avoid staining.
The rectangular or square tiles must be ordered according to our packaging unit of 0,507 qm (60 pcs or 30 pcs respectively). Decorative tiles, border tiles and socket tiles can be ordered individually. The tiles are ordered directly in Italy. The lead time is approx. 3 weeks.
Tiles can only be transported safely with a forwarding agency. We would be pleased to provide you with an offer for delivery on your construction site. Transport cost depends on weight and distance. To prepare the offer we need to know the amount of tiles you plan to buy and your postcode. Shipping costs on request.
Cross-mixing is necessary to receive a harmonious play of colours. Please take the tiles out of different boxes during laying, alternating between all boxes.
Border tiles and ornamented tiles should get installed with offset joints, thus the appearance of the joints is more lively and the surface gets structured horizontally. Ornamentations, colours, and glaze-effects are fully displayed.
All tiling work must only be carried out by a qualified specialist. We cannot accept any liability for damages due to incorrect installation.
For laying we recommend a flexible adhessive according to DIN EN 12004 class C2T. The joints should be at least 2mm wide. We recommend to use a neutral colour for the joints. When using heavily pigmented grout and the tiles have a strong craquelé it is possible that colour pigments settle in the craquelé. The effect should be tested on a trial tile before the jointing. In order to avoid the absorption, it is advisable to impregnate the tiles with FILA MP/90 before jointing. To achieve a good final result it is advisable to also impregnate the joints.
For detailed information on adhessives and grout we like to refer to the specifications of the respective manufacturer. As laying is often made with different tiles that were produced with different methods (dry pressing, wet pressing, extrusion moulding etc.), we recommend that laying is carried out by a qualified specialist who has the expertise to level out the caliber differences that are typicall for non-industrial tile manufacturing.
Impregnation is only necessary for craquelé tiles. It is advisable to impregnate them before grouting, e.g. with FILA MP/90.
Before the impregnation process the tiles must be clean, so the impregnation can settle in unhindered. Please ensure that the tiles are absolutely dry. Use a small, wide container for the impregnation product. Please make sure that the roller or brush is completely soaked with the impregnation product. Apply the impregantion evenly on the tile surface. It is important to apply the impregnation from top to bottom, to avoid drip off. With this working method, it is easy to determine if you have treated the whole surface. If necessary you can make corrections. The residence time is 10 minutes. Use an absorbent cloth to remove excess product from the tiles. Please ascertain, that no residues remain on the surface!
