Terracotta is one of the oldest man-made materials: a mixture of clay and water left to dry and fired, creates one of the most beautiful, warm and prestigious floors. Important thing that not everyone knows is that terracotta artifacts need a treatment. Our company provides a guaranteed stain-resistant, protective and easy-to-clean treatment.
THE RESISTANCE OF TERRACOTTA
It is kneaded in such a way as to make the brick porous: the artifacts undergo a long drying and then get fired in the oven at over 1000 ° C. which makes them resistant to frost and heat. More and more nowadays the choice of furnishing one’s home with handmade terracotta represents a choice of taste and class. Preferring bricks made one by one means preferring the warmth and uniqueness of tradition.

The tiles have their greatest application in the construction of internal and external floors, lofts and attics. The larger squares are used for internal and external flooring, while the smaller sizes are used for bathroom and kitchen cladding. Steps and corners, as well as for stair flooring, are used for thresholds and window sills. The strips (Listelli), originally from the Middle Ages, are mainly used for the construction of outdoor floors that must withstand a high load.
