LEXINGTON KY --  Florida Tile has introduced a stylized interpretation of vein-cut stone called TidesHDP, a glazed porcelain and wall tile line for both commercial and residential use. It is the latest addition to the company’s family of ever-expanding HDP High Definition Porcelain® Products.Florida tile high definition porcelain

"Specifically, the look of Tides is that of a linear-cut Travertine or Limestone known as Georgette," said Sean Cilona, Florida Tile’s Marketing Director. "In its natural form, this look is a stunning linear play of tone-on-tone colors which creates the contemporary appearance.

"As a Florida Tile porcelain product, Tides is far stronger, more versatile, and easier to maintain than stone, meaning that the look can go virtually anywhere. By using Florida Tile’s HDP-High Definition Porcelain® technology, we not only reproduce this stone look, we also are able to set loose our imaginations with bold color combinations that can't be found in nature."

The new Tides collection ranges from bold Blues to Steel Gray and Dark Brown.

"We created contemporary colors that can be specified in any commercial space. Each color has a unique blend of complimentary colors within its veining to add interest and depth, as well as pair beautifully with other design finishes," said Cilona. The larger-format Tides can also make a statement in residential settings.

Tidesglazed porcelain floor and wall is available in pressed 12 x 24 inch piece along with a 3- x 24-inch bullnose for each color.

"We have also added a unique patterned M12 mosaic that rotates each chip 90 degrees, to create a wonderful checkerboard pattern," added Cilona. "From a design perspective, the result is that TidesHDP presents countless opportunities for creative expression, far beyond that of natural stone."
Tides is made in the USA of 40% post-industrial recycled content. It is GreenGuard and Porcelain Tile Certified and meets the new DCOF Acutest requirements to be installed in wet areas.
