  • What is encaustic cement tile ?
  • Are the patterns on Regalo encaustic cement tiles painted?

 

Encaustic cement tiles are hand-made, aesthetic tiles with many coloured patterns used for floor and wall coverings.  Our tiles are made of two layers: The first layer (about 5-10mm thick) is a mixture of white cement, pigment, stone powder and additives which are hand-poured into divider mould to create desired patterned. The second layer is made of grey cement and sand to ensure the strength of tiles.

No, the patterns are neither painted nor printed. Liquid colored materials (consisting of white cement, pigment, fillers, additives which are friendly to the environment) are hand-poured into divider molds to create these patterns. They are actually a layer of approx. 2-3mm. Therefore, the patterns will last very long and never go away. There are many ancient buildings in which cement tile floors have been existing for more than 100 years but still very beautiful.
