Throughout history, marble has been the peak of luxury. Our innovative technology has provided us the ability to duplicate marble’s magnificent veining to such a degree, it is almost impossible to distinguish between natural stone marble and marble look porcelain.
The tiles are made of porcelain, a durable material renowned for its durability and classy aesthetic.
Suitable for use with underfloor heating provided the correct substrate preparation and a suitable flexible cement based tile adhesive and grouts are used.

In some cases, polished porcelain will have a transit wax on the tile surface to prevent scratching during transportation. This transit will need to be removed using Fila Deterdek Pro before grouting.
Once tiles have been fitted all residues must be removed from the surface of the tile, it is important to use the correct cleaner for this.
Initial Clean (Within 30 minutes of grouting)
For removal of cementitious residues within 10-30 minutes of grouting use Instant Grout Remover.
Directions for use: After grouting, wait approximately 10-30 minutes (see manufacturer’s instructions) until grout has thickened and become opaque. Carry out an initial clean of the tile surface with a damp sponge. Working in small areas of 1m², spray Instant Remover evenly over the surface and leave for 2 minutes. Clean using a damp sponge.
Initial Clean (After 30 minutes of grouting)
For washing after laying and for end-of-work cleaning: wet the surface well with water before washing. Then use Fila Deterdek Pro diluted at a ratio of 1:5 or 1:10 (1 litre of product in 5 or 10 litres of water). Apply the solution a few square metres at a time, then add, allow contact time of 5 minutes, then work with a single disc cleaner or large brush. Remove any residues using a cloth or liquid vacuum cleaner and rinse with abundant water.
A second application maybe necessary to remove any existing residue
This product should not be used neat as the dilution with water activates the ingredients of the cleaner. Always perform a test in a small portion of the surface to verify the acid resistance of the surface.
For removal of epoxy residues use Fila Tile & Stone Stain Remover (SR95).
Directions for use: Apply Fila Tile & Stone Stain Remover undiluted to the surface of the tiles. Leave to act for 20 minutes then using an abrasive sponge work the solution over the surface. Clean up the residue and rinse with plenty of clean water.
Do not use on polished Natural Stone, Wood, Acrylic or Plastic surfaces.
It is important to regularly maintain the surface of your tiles to prevent the build-up of deposits, to do this use our pH neutral Fila Cleaner Pro.
Directions for use:
Dilute Fila Cleaner Pro at 1:200 (25 ml in 5 litres of water). No need to rinse. For more stubborn dirt, wash using more concentrated solutions. Remove any residues using a liquid vacuum cleaner or cloth. Rinse after cleaning.
To remove any rust from porcelain tile use Fila rust stain remover.
Directions for use: It is ready to use. Apply completely covering the stain with the product. Leave to act for about 15 minutes. The product’s colour will change to deep purple as it reacts with the rust. Once the indicated time has elapsed, remove the residue and rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water, then leave to dry. Repeat the application if necessary.
Acidic or highly alkaline cleaners are NOT recommended for the regular maintenance of this tile.
