|Created to signify a revolutionary new product category, HDP utilizes the most technically advanced glazing system in the industry today, digital printing. Like the technology that changed the television industry, High Definition Porcelain brings you the most realistic image possible, except it is on a tile.
Much like the picture on your television screen, the graphics on tiles are made up of millions of small dots of color. The smaller the dots, the higher the definition. In the 80s, most manufacturers used silk screens to apply glazes. The resolution was low and each set of silk screens produced only a single color pattern. Tile had to be rotated during installation or it was immediately obvious that every piece looked the same. The Roto-color process was a huge step forward in the 1990s and allowed for a pattern that wouldn’t be repeated for 20-30 tiles.
