Metropolitan Ceramics, the leader in manufacturing high quality, unglazed quarry tile is pleased to introduce ENVIROQUARRY™.
Our quarry tile is extremely durable as a result of our extrusion manufacturing process, not pressed. In addition, our tile is slip resisting and resists impact and abrasion. The color palette consists of natural earth tones that are through-the-body so the color will not scratch or wear off like some glazed and porcelain products. Metropolitan quarry tile is the ideal choice for demanding commercial and residential applications.
The production of our extruded quarry tile creates a by-product that cannot be added, in large volume, to our existing colors. Other manufacturing processes create by-products including glaze waste and fired scrap. Through additional blending of large quantities of this by-product with virgin material, we are now able to offer a product with a preconsumer* recycled content of over 60%. ENVIROQUARRY™ meets the same tough standards as our regular quarry product and is kiln flashed for random color variation and added appeal. Metropolitan Ceramics® is pleased to bring to market a product that performs so well and has the potential to divert hundreds of tons of material from the waste stream.
NOTE: Because of the nature of ENVIROQUARRY™ (high recycled content)there may be some shade variation from run to run and within longer runs of the material. Flashing of the product will help in the blending of color variations, but some variation is to be expected in a product of this sort.
