17 Feb RECTIFIED CERAMIC TILES BY MYKONOS CERAMICA
A rectified tile has the same properties that a traditional tile has. The difference is that, at the end of the manufacturing process the tile is cut, so we achieve totally straight edges on every piece.
This treatment with diamond wheels (or laser) “rectify” the edges, achieving perfect 90º angles. This procedure does not affect at all the polish, the thickness, or any other quality parameter of the tile.
As a consequence of the mentioned cut, the tiles could perfectly fit side by side with each other.
This offers us a main advantage: to be able to place them with a joint of only 2mm separation, which results in beautiful continuous surfaces in which the transition between one tile and another is hardly perceived. (Especially if the joint is the same color as the ceramic piece).
In conclussion, cleaner floor and wall tiles are generated since we do not have the usual joints, which can be up to 5 mm.
Its tiling is usually slower and more complex than that of a non-rectified tile, so we must make sure to work with professionals.
Initially, rectification was applied only to imitation marble tiles, to achieve that sensation of huge and smooth pieces.
But nowadays it is no longer like that.
Among its series, Mykonos Cerámica has multiple rectified options.
As a matter of fact, Mykonos Cerámica has rectified wood-looking, as CALIMA, Stone such as the BALI ROCK series, concret tiles such as MANÁ, Rustic, indoors and outdoors tiles, in different sizes…
Usually the rectified tiles are porcelain, however, in Mykonos Cerámica you can also find rectified white body tiles, such as MARMI, or with textures beyond the smooth ones, with diamond or wave relief options like in the ASTOR series.
