Euro Cotto | Italian Porcelain Tile
Euro uses modern technology to achieve the quintessentially classic terra-cotta look in glazed porcelain. Its slightly undulated surface with the marks of traditional hand-made terracotta adds to the series’ authenticity. Cotto features two finishes, Natural and Grip, allowing a fluid transition from interior to exterior spaces.

Grip Finish - Exterior
Although the look is the same as the natural finish, the Grip has special additives that make it more slip resistant. It is rated R11 in the European Standards and is suitable for exterior floors.
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 (including but not limited to contaminants, slope of terrain, drainage conditions, adjacent surfaces, etc.). The type of use must also be considered, and final selection can only be decided by the end-user. Continual cleaning and maintenance must be performed once the tile has been installed.
Usage & Installation
Cotto is suitable for use on walls, counters and residential to moderate duty commercial floors. Grip Finish is also suitable for exterior floors (see note above). As with all inkjet lines, there are many graphics that are mixed and packed randomly. It is important to pull from multiple boxes during installation, rotate pieces and note the placement of the different images in order to get the proper final blend. This is a non-rectified tile. A minimum 1/8” grout joint is recommended.
Natural Finish (R9) for interiors.
Grip Finish (R11) for exteriors.
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.
