Porcelain tiles are a long-term investment that requires no eventual replacement. Often porcelain tiles are produced with recycled materials too. They require no adhesives and their dry installation also significantly reduces the creation of dust and pollutants in the environment. Kronos Porcelain Pavers & Tiles are composed of 60% to 70% recycled material. The manufacturer’s philosophy is to minimize environmental impact during construction projects by reducing or eliminating the use of adhesives and setting materials, reducing or eliminating the use of water, and eliminating any waste resulting from the production cycle.
Porcelain tile, made of natural ingredients such as clays, quartz, and feldspar, and fired to 2500 degrees Fahrenheit, is 100% plastic-free. This makes it one of the most environmentally friendly flooring options available. Besides being 100% recyclable, porcelain’s durability means it does not require repeated replacement, unlike other materials.
