Good to know
Moroccan cement tiles are beautiful encaustic tiles that are produced according to traditional methods. They are handmade and pressed in our factory as it has been done for decades. Cement and colored marble powder are pressed together through a mold. This makes the cement tile more sensitive to stains and must be impregnated during and after installation. The colors are mixed manually, which can cause color differences in different deliveries. This is inherent to this type of tile and should be considered normal.
Installing Cement Tiles
Moroccan cement tiles require extra attention during installation and have their own instruction manual. Upon purchase, you will receive a step-by-step plan with instructions and points of attention. We recommend that you read this manual carefully before installing and impregnating the tiles. Or hire a good tiler who is familiar with this type of tile. In a nutshell, it is important to know that they are sensitive to acids and caustic ingredients. Therefore, treat cement tiles as natural stone.
Cement tiles can be used both indoors and outdoors. They are suitable as a floor tile but also as a wall tile, even though they are a bit thicker than normal. They are ideal tiles for your hall, toilet, bathroom or kitchen. A real eye-catcher for any room! Please note that the tiles need treatment. This is different for each room. For outside, we always recommend placing the tiles under a veranda or roof. In the open air they are more likely to be affected by the rain and sun.
Colors and sizes
Marocca tiles are available in many different colors. Each batch has a small color difference. The tiles in 1 box also have color differences and irregularities, this has to do with the production process and should be considered normal.
