The Making of Toscano Antiguo Floor Tile - Mexican Floor Pavers

Toscano Antiguo handmade and high fired floor tiles are of unparallel quality. The durability and strength of our Toscano Antiguo tiles greatly dependents on high quality raw materials, and firing processes. There is a very strict quality control in the selection and formulation of the clay that embodies these tiles, along with high firing. Our Toscano Antiguo tiles are fired at temperatures ranging from 1180 to 1200 degrees centigrade, approximately 2100 degrees Fahrenheit. Only high quality raw materials, and careful formulation can withstand such temperatures without cracking or breaking apart in the kiln.

In comparison to Saltillo tiles and mission red tiles, Tuscano Antiguo floor tiles are of superior quality and durability that is why they are the preferred floor tiles by architects, professional builders, and designers. Toscano Antiguo floor tiles are 100% handcrafted that delivers a stunning and authentic old-world charm with 21st century high quality standards; they require very little maintenance.

Toscano Antiguo floor tiles must be sealed in order to preserve their beauty. We recommend the usage of a high quality penetrating sealer such as 511 Impregnator or 511 Porous Plus from Miracle Sealants Company

511 Porous Plus is a penetrating sealer designed for the protection of the most porous surfaces. 511 Porous Plus forms an invisible barrier that is resistant to moisture and stains while allowing vapor to escape. 511 Porous Plus is not a surface coating and will not alter the natural look. All surfaces are harder and less slippery. Therefore, 511 Porous Plus is highly recommended for all our Mexican terra-cotta floor tiles.

NOTE: The process of making the Toscano Antiguo floor tiles is the same as the process of making Tierra floor tiles. Although Tierra y Fuego maintains high standards of quality control, lot variation in size and color may be present from shipment to shipment. There is no guarantee that tiles ordered as add-ons will match those from original orders. This is an intrinsic characteristic in all handcrafted tile.
