Mercury Porcelain, mottled and earthy grey in colour, able to blend with either warm or cool tones provides an option for those who seek a concrete-look around their pool and surrounds. A minimalist, modern looking pool edge has long been a sort after aesthetic and Mercury Porcelain delivers a similar feel and look to concrete, without the need for sealing.|
|Why choose Mercury Porcelain?||Mercury porcelain tiles are hard, dense and durable, making them very resistant to staining. The ‘Grip’ finish is rated P5 due to the non-slip finish on the tiles, making them ideal for use around swimming pools and outdoor areas. The surface finish is comfortable on the skin and gentle enough for swimming costumes. The tiles are accurately sized, cut well and are easy to lay. Mercury Porcelain provides a modern, minimalist look without compromising practicality and the enduring beauty of your pool edge.|
|Maintenance||Minimal maintenance is required and these tiles do not require sealing. Porcelain's dense surface absorbs very little moisture, so spills that might seep into another material and cause a stain, can easily be wiped up with a damp cloth or hosed off. Mercury Porcelain generally only needs to be swept and regularly cleaned with water and a mild detergent.|
|Relative Pricing||Mid range – higher than Himalayan Quartz and concrete. Similar to Light Grey Granite. Cheaper than Travertines.|
