INNOTECH - RAK CERAMICS LAB
Innovation is at the heart of RAK Ceramics' philosophy. The company is a pioneer in introducing high-tech innovations that are breakthroughs in the industry, such as the large format tiles, press system, digital printing, translucent slabs, soluble salts and antibacterial glazes.
The antibacterial revolution
RAK-Sanit is a complete solution that includes porcelain and ceramic tile collections that reduce bacterial contamination and contribute to a healthier living and working environment owing to its antibacterial properties given by silver nitrate compounds. RAK-Sanit antibacterial collection of wall and floor tiles features antibacterial technology that is permanently integrated into the tile surface. Once bacteria come into contact with the tiled surface, the silver ions initiate the elimination cycle. Silver ions in the antibacterial tile surface bind to enzymes, proteins, cell membranes, and the DNA of the microbe to damage DNA and block reproduction, resulting in the death of the organisms.
ANTISLIP BAREFOOT PLUS for indoor and outdoor application
The Antislip Barefoot + technology gives porcelain tiles excellent non-slip performance and a pleasant feel, with a special roughness imperceptible to the touch. With their technical characteristics that increase the safety and functionality of floors, they are ideal for indoor and outdoor applications for both commercial and residential settings.
extremely versatile surfaces
With a dedicated production technology able to deliver the most modern high-performing surface solution, a new variety of full-body porcelain stoneware is created. These tiles are produced using the most modern system and quality materials resulting in an extraordinary natural, high-performing variety of porcelain tiles with unique characteristics and limitless applications.
Heat adaptive technology
on porcelain tiles
Klima is a new generation ceramic that, thanks to special materials, is able to resist to cold or warm temperatures according to individual needs and to keep the same temperature as the surrounding environment. Klima retains room heat and releases it over the entire surface, producing a warmer feel than a standard floor. Ideal for surfaces that provide a wood-like effect, imparting a warmth and a comfort to be experienced. Klima resiste to the heat from sunlight and remains cool and pleasant to walk on with bare feet. Even with significant sun exposure, the surface is not burning hot and floor keeps the came temperature as the surrounding environment. On ventilated external façades. Klima helps limit heat dispersion while maintaining a steady indoor temperature. An innovative solution that helps reduce room energy demands.
3D texture, surfaces, and colours in unique materials
3D Shape is an innovative technology that combines realism and aesthetic perfection into a tile. Each surface has varied depths and three-dimensionality, creating a visual play of 3D texture and colour, perfect for adding movement to walls and floors in interiors and exterior environments.
Environmentally sustainable surfaces
Orbit 3Rs is one of the latest innovations created by RAK Ceramics R&D laboratories which produces sustainable and highperformance tiles that contributes to the reduce, reuse and recycle concept. The tiles are manufactured with up to 95% recycled materials from wastes generated during the manufacturing process of ceramic tiles. Orbit 3Rs tiles meet the architectural requirements of environmentally sustainable and durable products, making them ideal for new construction trends and tailoring private homes for both outdoor and indoor environments.
Extra matt, zero gloss surfaces
Absolute Matt is the most recent innovation developed by RAK Ceramics R&D laboratories, which takes the concept of matte to new heights by enabling tiles to achieve an extra-matt surface; with zero reflection and a completely non-glossy finish. Absolute Matt enhances the tile’s natural texture and durability, satisfying any design project’s aesthetic and functional requirements.
THROUGH BODY VEINS Porcelain tile that is as real as natural marble
Through-Body Veining is RAK Ceramics’ innovative breakthrough in reproducing natural marble and stone veins that pass through the thickness of the porcelain slab’s body. This technology gives porcelain slab a unique design feature, having a consistent marble veining, from the surface to the body until the base - a total synchronization.
Translucent tiles for special environments
Light becomes a design tool in the hands of the designer with the Maximus Luce translucent slabs, which enrich any environment thanks to its backlighting technology. It is an absolute novelty that will inspire creativity. With its varied graphics and colours inspired by the most precious marbles and onyx, plus its exceptional feature of transmitting light through, Luce is the perfect solution for sophisticated commercial and residential applications.
High definition structures using digital technology
Sync Effect is a technology that creates highly defined tiles through embossed graphics and material structure on smooth and textured surfaces. The material merges with the body of the tile to create unique and realistic designs, rich in detail and depth.
