Clay Imports' Matte Sealer preserves the natural look of terracotta, while providing near-invisible protection from water absorption.
Matte Sealed Tiles are coated with 3 layers of water repellent sealer, which serves as an effective barrier against water, but in areas of heavy foot traffic or usage, discoloration, darkening and staining may occur over time.
Dark red, and consistent in color, Dhanis Red Terra cotta is the tile for lovers of mid-century modern design. They are a great alternative to Saltillo tile, just without the high color and texture variation. They are flatter, smoother and less varied in color and sheen.
Dhanis Red Terra cotta tiles are made of natural red clay. Original Dhanis tiles were commonly used throughout the 1960s but are no longer in production. Many historic homes choose D'hanis Red Terracotta tiles in place of original Dhanis tile.
Cotto tiles are denser because of the use of machinery and can be fired at a higher temperature. Cotto is more refined and less porous. They are more consistent in color, with minimal variation throughout. They come in a few different colors, which can be found here.
