With its past goes back to 18th century, the body of the tiles is made up of multiple types of cement. As such, the patterns never wither even if tile wears off in time. Encaustic tiles, made by Tago Tiles, are suitable for all flooring applications, business or houses, from floors, walls to terraces and many indoor and outdoor areas.
Handmade Tago Tiles – Karo Istanbul collection tiles use in their productions high-quality cement (PC 52,5 R), marble dust, natural stone granules, natural color pigments and micron size granular sand, pressed under the high pressures (120 Bar) (1700 PSI). As a result, less water absorption and higher pressure resistance are achieved.
Thus, they are packed with resistances that are suitable for heavy traffic areas such as hotel, restaurant, cafe and shopping centers. They can also be used in outdoor and indoor areas not exposed to frost.
Tiles are individually hand-made in colors and properties tailored to the customer request. Customized new designs and textures are possible upon request
