Marbo Granit - elegant as
marble, strong as granite
Granit is a vitrified tile, which has a homogeneous material
composition. This material makes the tile tough and durable. Since
the designs are done through the body of the tile, the life span
of the tile is long compared to glazed ceramic tiles which are glazed
only on the surface. Marbo Granit is manufactured by Bell
Granito Ceramica Limited, the leading manufacturers of vitrified
tiles in India. Bell Granito Ceramica Limited is in collaboration
with M/s Ceramic Mirage Spa of Italy, which has patented
the technology. Bell Granito Ceramica Limited is an ISO 9002 registered
Granit has a lot more advantages compared to other tiles like,
the design which is through the body of the tile, and gives it an
appearance of either an Italian marble or natural granite tile.
There is a variety of a single shade and hence this is a major advantage
over marble and granite. Also there is no shade or colour variation
in the same batch.
tiles are scratch resistant. The tile has almost zero porosity and
this makes it highly stain resistant. It has anti-skid properties.
The breakage limit is 400 kilogram per square centimetre, which
makes this tile stronger than marble and granite. Being perfectly
sized and chamfered to ensure easy laying, it can also be laid on
already existing flooring.
Granit comes in 3 different sizes- 40 cm by 40 cm, 30 cm by
60 cm and 60 cm by 60 cm. They are available in 2 different finishes
- mirror and matt. These finishes can be used in combinations to
give a pleasing effect.
Use and maintenance instructions
Before laying the tiles:Carefully check the sizes, shades
and calibers of the tiles in order to plan the laying better. Complaints
about defective tiles will not be entertained, once the tiles have
While laying the tilesTo facilitate cleaning after completion
of laying, it is a good idea not to use equipment and products with
a strong staining power. Use grouts having colours, matching colours
of the floor. It is however, essential to completely remove amy
grout residues from the floor.
Residues of mortar, grout or polishing particles are always
present on the surface of all tiles, though they may be invisible
to the naked eye. The residues will absorb dirt thus giving you
the impression that your floor is hard to clean. These residues
must, therefore be dissolved and accurately removed with the aid
of any acid-based grout remover available in the market. Just follow
the cleaning instruction on the product meticulously for effective
All other tiles of whatever kind (natural stone, marble, granite,
wood, metal, rubber,plastic, glazed and unglazed ceramics) have
surface microporosity. The excellent Marbo Granit product
has almost no microporosity. In the case of particularly delicate
light shades or plain colours in general, there may be some cleaning
problems. A recommendation is, after laying, clean the perfectly
dry floor thoroughly and apply any commercially available cleaning
in the market. Follow the instructions on the product meticulously
for effective results.
Proven resistance to chemical attack allows the use of even
very concentrated and powerful cleaning products for routine maintenance(with
the exception of hydroflouric acid and its derivatives). We recommend
the use of any commercially available cleaning agent in the market.
