Spanish tile manufacturers to exhibit at Cersaie

Turmali by Tau Ceramica

BOLOGNA, ITALY -- Cersaie, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tiles and Bathroom Furnishings, is set to take place from September 28 to October 2, 2010 at the Bologna Fairgrounds in Bologna, Italy, and a contingency of Tile of Spain branded manufacturers will be among the exhibitors. As in years past, some of the largest tile producers in Spain will display their latest developments to an international audience.

Tile of Spain (The Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturer's Association, ASCER) is a private organization whose primary objective is to support Spain's ceramic tile manufacturers as well as the industry as a whole by stewarding and promoting the Tile of Spain brand worldwide. As a strong global leader, the ceramic tile industry of Spain comprises nearly 200 manufacturers concentrated primarily in the province of Castellón. A total of 129 Spanish manufacturers will be presenting their newest products at the trade exhibition, including 90 stone and tile producers.

Novocemento by Ceramicas Aparici

This fall, Tile of Spain branded manufacturers are putting great emphasis on the look of classic materials with a modern twist. The companies will showcase a broad spectrum of tile collections -- from large-format porcelain pieces to iridescent glass mosaics. The Spanish producers have dedicated significant time and research all year to create innovative product lines.

Among those who will be in attendance at Cersaie 2010 will be Tau Ceramica, a leader in innovation. The company is looking to the past to bring the best of history and nature into present day with its newest collections. Turmali offers an iridescent finish and is inspired by tourmaline stone. Large format provides the ideal canvas to display this series as it allows a full display of sparkle and changes in tonality. Turmali is available in blue, copper and pyrite.

Tuscany by Azulejos Plaza

The look of concrete is flawlessly captured by Tile of Spain branded manufacturer Ceramicas Aparici to meet minimalist design needs. The company will be showing a rectified porcelain tile that is double-fired for ultimate durability and is available in both standard thickness and Aparici's slim tile option, SLIM4. Novocemento is available in formats 45 x 90, 22.5 x 90 and 30 x 60 cm and in colors Marfil, Gris, Brown and Negro.

Tile of Spain branded manufacturer Azulejos Plaza will unveil Tuscany, a porcelain tile produced using a combination of different reliefs and ink jet printing technology. The resulting look is classified as "Rappolano," created from a selection of the finest rappolano stones available. This gives great variation from one piece to another -- approximately 80 to 100 different faces. The series is available in four colors: Bone, Copper, Terra and Gold and offered in 18- x 18-, 12- x 24-inch format with 2- x 2-inch mosaics.
