dune porcelain tile

Kauri is an Italian glazed porcelain which uses inkjet capabilities to create the look of petrified wood in three finishes. The bark is a rough, textured finish to represent the outside of the tree, while the Natural (matte) and Lappato (semi-polished) finishes both represent the inside core of the tree. There is separate graphic development for the Bark finish that is different from the other two finishes. All sizes are rectified with the Lappato being rectified a second time to a smaller size after polishing. Expect a lot of variation within each color.



PRODUCT INFORMATION

Using inkjet technology, the Bark with its rough textured finish represents the outside of the tree, while the Natural and Lappato finishes both represent the core of the tree. Acif uses a separate graphic development for the Bark finish that is different from the graphic on the other two finishes.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

The Coefficient of Friction is a general guide only. Testing may vary with different production runs and with different testing labs. As noted in the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) the coefficient of friction varies considerably due to facts not under the control of entities such as the manufacturers and distributors. These factors include, but are not limited to, contaminants, slope of terrain, drainage conditions, adjacent surfaces, etc. Suitability for any installation can only be determined by a site examination of all conditions that could affect the slip resistance of the tile being installed. Continual cleaning and maintenance must be performed once the tile has been installed. For more information see our current handout Americans with Disabilities Act and Slip Resistance of Tile.

INSTALLATION INFORMATION
Most Italian manufacturers recommend a maximum offset of 8” (20cm) on all large format tiles when setting running bond. Please refer to ANSI requirements for setting large format tiles ANSI A108.02 Section 4.3.8.
