Florim USA has introduced Ecowood, a glazed porcelain tile, to the North American marketplace. Each tile is produced using High Definition Graphic (HDG) Technology, a state-of-the art inkjet process creating "wood-look".
Ecowood is a rustic tile range replicating the inherent beauty of natural hardwood. Offered in five unique colors: Noce, Wenge, Rovere, Avorio, and Multi-Color, two size formats are available: 6”x24” pressed and 6”x36” rectified. Complementary Ecowood trim pieces 6”x12” cove-base, and 1”x6” corner pieces are included, as well. The 6”x36” rectified format is a brand new size produced by Florim USA.
Made in the USA, Ecowood has a Dynamic Coefficient of Friction(DCOF) rating of > 0.42; making it an ideal choice for nearly any application (residential/commercial; indoor/outdoor). Additionally, all Ecowood materials contain 40% recycled content. Projects which include Ecowood are eligible for LEED points.
Florim USA will soon be introducing a 18"x36" size format, providing the unique opportunity to cut and rectify longer size formats such as the new Ecowood 6"x36" tile.
"Our R & D department spent so much time in developing Ecowood to replicate natural wood, both visually and texturally, very few people will be able to tell the difference," stated Stefano Rabaioli, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Florim USA. "But unlike wood, this product offers the unmatched durability and ease of maintenance which only porcelain tile has to offer."
