Specification 2.0: Understanding Ceramics to Use Their Full Potential
The modern age of ceramic tile began around 1970. Since then the innovations in aesthetics and quality have jumped by leaps and bounds. Today, we will explore the four types of tile. Production techniques and an easy rule of thumb will be applied to provide simple language to explain choices to clients easily and select the optimal tile for every job. Once a solid foundation of knowledge is built we can get creative utilizing all the new products available to their maximum potential. As the industry changes, new production and glazing techniques give rise to new materials – it’s up to us to take full advantage of this highly innovative industry. Modern technology like large formats, slim porcelains, ventilated facades and ceramic screens provide nearly limitless potential to grow our specifications outside kitchens and baths or even floors and walls. As part of this presentation, 30 minutes will be devoted to trends/innovations and the second half to focus on ventilated facades.
This is an in-person CEU. Please contact Tile of Spain at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule the course for your firm.
