Inspired by the fine-grained quartzite found in the Swiss Alps, the Ambassador series lends high-end styling wherever it’s used. Eons of stratification are reflected in the distinctive mono-directional graining of this ColorBody™ porcelain tile. Large format sizes in four handsome colors make the series a natural choice for design possibilities in commercial and residential spaces.

• MODERN AND ELEGANT FLAIR
- Elegant stone look available in four colors featuring a high level of veining and distinctive patterns
- Three modern sizes including 24 x 24, 12 x 24 and 24 x 48

• HEIGHTENED VERSATILITY
- 12 x 24 available in Light Polished and Unpolished finishes

Notes:

  • 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 surface. Use of a latex modified thin-set is recommended for installation.

  • Strong random shading enhances the natural beauty of this product. To achieve optimal results, tile should be selected from multiple cartons and shading arrangement planned prior to installation.

  • Since there are variations in all fired ceramic products, 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 samples or color reproductions. Manufactured in accordance with ANSI A137.1 standards.
