Natural red and engobed

In its pure form you’ll receive the classical fired clay as a natural product, optionally finished with a standard engobe or coloured as you wish. Since centuries roofes are covered with these tiles. Natural red and engobed tiles are available with all our tiles.

Multi coloured engobes

Multi coloured tiles are your first choice for individual roof projects and selected historic preservation projects. During the manufacturing process natural pigments will be applied on the tile with the help of pulsating jets and fired afterwards. Every tile will be a unicum and will only unfold its special effect as a multi coloured tile through the interaction with other tiles on the roof.

Fine engobes

With the fine engobes you receive a tile, that is covered with a thin layer of 40 bis 80 μm. This breathable layer containing out of clay, glass powder, colouring oxides and additives, provides the tile with its unique silk surface shining as well as an aesthetic similarity to the glossy glazing. Fine engobed tiles have a good price-performance-ratio and are available in six fine shades.

Special series

Benefits of the steaming process are obvious: As a result of the throughout-dyed tiles elaborate roofs do not need to be reowrked with a lot of blend. Steamed produucts are very much appreciated with historic preservation projects. While straming a second fire process is performed, in completely eliminating the oxygen supply. The iron oxide that is part of the oxygen will be deprived, and the fired piece receives its typical shade in three different colours.
