This project aims to develop decorated porcelainized ceramic floor tiles, with high wear resistance, consistent with the maximum level U4 advocated in Mazaud test under the UPEC classification. At the same time, aesthetic and visual changes of the material must be minimized, so that solutions can cover very broad chromatic and aesthetic range. Industrialization of the best solutions will meet the growing demands on the floor tiles performance applied in high traffic areas. As a result of the new developments, it is expected to increase export market share towards countries of strategic importance.
