Photo features Porcealto in Azzurite and Bianco Ghiaccio 12 x 12 and Urban Metals 2 x 12 Spiral Deco in Bronze on the floor.

Serenely beautiful, yet tremendously strong and durable, Porcealto is a study in contrasts. With its fashionably luxurious look, you would never guess that it can withstand the toughest stains and even frost. Evenly colored throughout its porcelain body, Porcealto will retain its magnificence for years. Available in a range of colors and surface finishes, including polished, unpolished, textured and sandblasted.


  • **A Cross Grid (skid-resistant) surface finish is available by special order, in 8" x 8" only in select colors.

  • SP = Denotes Special Order.

  • Numbers in ( ) indicate price group. (1) is least expensive.

  • Check chart for size and surface availability.

  • Special care should be taken when grouting with dark pigmented colors. A grout release is recommended to prevent finely powdered pigments from lodging in the pores of the tile surface.

  • Use of a latex modified thin-set is recommended for installation. Not for use on ramps.

  • Since there are variations in all fired ceramic products, the tile and trim supplied for your particular installation may not match these samples. Final color selection should be made from actual tiles and trim and not from tile and trim samples or color reproductions. Manufactured in accordance with ANSI A137.1 standards.

A DCOF value of > 0.42 is the new standard for tiles specified for commercial application in standard A137.1-2012, Section 9.6. It replaces the SCOF value of > 0.60 referenced in ASTM C1028. For more information on the correlation between the two values and about the DCOF AcuTest, click here for more information or visit the Tile Council of North America's website: www.tcnatile.com

Manufacturers Warning:

  • These tiles have a dynamic coefficient of friction less than 0.42 as measured by the DCOF AcutestTM method. Tiles with DCOF Acutest values less than .42 are not recommended for use in areas with wet or slippery conditions. If such tiles are used as a walking surface where water, ice, oil, grease and/or other substances are present, such a condition could cause a reduction in foot traction and become unexpectedly slippery resulting in a fall and personal injury. See ANSI standard A137.1 section, available at www.tcnatile.com/section6.
  • Water, oil, grease, etc. create slippery conditions. Floor applicatons with exposure to these conditions require extra caution in product selection. Not for use on ramps.
  • For addtional information, refer to Factors to Consider.
  • Since there is a shade variation on all natural products, the tile and trim supplied for your particular installation may not match these samples. Final selection should be made from actual tiles and trim and not from tile and trim samples or color reproductions. Manufactured in accordance with ANSI A137.1 standards.
