What is enhanced realism?

Enhanced realism provides a magnified view of a product's surface appearance using technology-driven enhancements in glazing and print quality to recreate the look and feel of natural materials while providing the durability of porcelain tile. This process can display the textured look and keen details directly within the top layer of your tile’s material. Due to differences in surface types, enhanced realism leverages unique looks that distinguish various types of flooring texture. Examples of this include distinctive veining, a natural wood look, and others.  

  • Enhanced ink jet application: adds additional depth and realism to tile. Ink jet applications express detailed colors that often appear in the veining of a tile's surface.  

  • Enhanced glazed application: gives the tile texture and depth using the highest-quality printing technique in the industry. This process provides a realistic look to the surface of the tile that aligns with the printed graphic. Glaze applications can also clearly convey a polished or matte finish to a tile's surface.  

The enhanced realism process includes touchable textures, realistic veining and color variation to capture the tile's essence of natural material.
