Decotal denoting Israeli manufacturer has just launched an innovative and creative collection of tiles. It becomes the first ever to unite concrete and metal. The concrete is not a commonplace one, but Engineered Polymer Concrete (EPC), and it is also a first for the tile industry. This extremely tough concrete is three times stronger than commonplace concrete and its texture confers it a warm and pleasing look and feel. The mixture between the raw concrete and the intricate metal decoration generates a deluxe contrasting effect. The metal is embedded into the concrete during the casting process, and can be plated before or after casting. For now, the plating options consist of gold, silver, nickel and blackened, and the manufacturers guarantee to also launch brass, copper, aluminum and titanium in the near future. The metal can be finished as shiny, mat or brushed. Multiplied by the 27 obtainable patterns, these tiles offer a lot of possible combinations to generate stunning floor or wall decorations. They can be used in bathrooms or outdoors, as they are totally waterproof and weather resistant. Make use of them to generate carpet like surfaces, as frames to a more neutral pattern or go for fully-patterned surfaces for a decadent, luxurious result.
