Porcelain Tile Advances

We believe that 2012 will prove to be a watershed year for the tile industry with increased availability of porcelain tile featuring images created with digital printing technology.  Manufacturers such as Florida Tile with its High Definition Porcelain (“HDP”) and Daltile with its Reveal Imaging have incorporated digital printing into the manufacture of their high-end products.  With its high-resolution graphics and extremely infrequent pattern repetition, digital printing technology has made it possible to manufacture porcelain tiles with the look of reclaimed, vintage hardwoods, metallic industrial slabbing, and various stone looks that include travertine, slate, breccia marble, and quartzite.   Each of these products is indistinguishable from, and has performance characteristics that are superior to, the real thing.
