URBATEK – PORCELANOSA Grupo
Who we are
URBATEK is one of the outcomes of the group’s constant efforts in the field of specialist product development. This range of through-body porcelain tiles was developed to meet the most exacting technical standards in architecture and design projects. A high-performance range in a multitude of formats and finishes, it is suitable for use both indoors and out.
URBATEK tiles are conceived to meet the needs of professionals from the worlds of architecture and design. They are particularly well regarded for the following reasons:
- A through-body porcelain tile range, with no surface glazes and no double loaded tiles.
- A low water absorption rate (well below the current legal threshold) and high mechanical performance.
- Unrepeatable patterns, since no screen-printing is involved in the production process.
- Numerous surface finishes. Top-quality polished finishes with a high reflective capacity, semi-polished ones, and relief textures.
- Large format tiles in a multiplicity of formats that can be mixed and matched.
As a result, URBATEK porcelain tiles combine the very best of through-body porcelain tile technology with all the elegance, varying finishes and patterns found on natural stone. URBATEK tiles bring contemporary design to architecture in a manner second to none.
