Porcelain Tile

When you combine beauty and practicality, you get the effortless ease of porcelain tile.

Tile Technologies

Microban & Reveal Imaging

Microban Technology

This revolutionary technology is built into products during the manufacturing process, so it never needsreapplying. It works continuously, 24/7, as an added level of defense to inhibit the growth of stain-and-odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew to help tiles stay cleaner between cleanings. UV light isn’t necessary for Microban technology to be effective; the safe and highly durable antimicrobial protection works by itself and lasts the entire useful lifetime of the product.
