OXIDART COPPER By CERAMICA SANT'AGOSTINO
Porcelain stoneware wall/floor tiles
OXIDART is the porcelain collection that reproduces oxidized metal slabs, obtained by exposing metal sheets to the open air for a long time in different weather and light conditions, due to different times and seasons.
This meticulous artisanal research process, aimed at obtaining the natural effect of the passage of time and the reaction of oxygen on a material such as iron, has been conceived following the method of development + ART, peculiar and completely internal to our company . A method that has also brought this product to differ aesthetically and technically, standing out as an artisan creation of a metallic surface with an urban and industrial style but sophisticated and elegant. It’sthe result of a maniacal attention to detail, of the high number of elaborate faces (up to 270 different graphics in size 20x20), of the highly calibrated colour shading, making OXIDART a material characterizing every type of environment - floor or wall, thanks to the features and functional advantages of the technologically and qualitatively advanced porcelain of Ceramica Sant ' Agostino.
To achieve the result of a new and original ceramic metal surface, in fact, Ceramica Sant'Agostino, in addition to a particular research, has adopted innovative and refined techniques in its laboratory, such as special glazes, or a personalized management of the latest generation digital printing designed to perfectly replicate the effect of an oxidized slab in the graphics and the material, obtaining more or less glossy areas together with opaque areas, thus reproducing in a surprising way the look of the natural oxidation of iron.
The surface also reminds that of a naturally oxidized slab, therefore silky to the touch (and therefore, in turn, easily in cleaning and maintenance), even with characteristics that respond to the application needs in commercial and public environments, not just residential, among which the anti-slip R10, the class 5 abrasion resistance and acids resistance.
The collection is developed from the large 120x120 size, through a decorative element in 30x120, up to the small 20x20 size, even in the Patchwork decorated version, for refined installation and furnishing solutions and in line with the product and brand concept of Ceramica Sant 'Agostino.
