Travertine is a sedimentary rock consisting of minerals deposits and other materials. It is a compact and porous material and this porosity or the holes from its structure actually defines travertine’s beauty. When it comes to interior or exterior decoration projects, travertine is the natural choice as the most popular material. Travertine’s colors and aesthetics are unique and its beauty unmatched.
Red Travertine is one of those daring materials, impressive due to lavish shades of light brown and cream red – a combination ideal for decorating any space. Each tile tells a different story and combined in your projects, you will enjoy a complete journey into nature’s universe. Beauty is defined by a unique color in the world – the powerful red color, with brown and cream inserts, the precise cuts and the spectacular texture that carries the nature’s spirit into every home.
Red Cross Cut Travertine with a polished finish is the ideal material for bathrooms or kitchens, in terms of cladding or countertops, covered terrace, façade or home base, living room, cafes or office spaces. Also, due to its durability and hardness, Red Travertine can be installed even with underfloor heating. Red Cross Cut Travertine with polished finish is the material your house needs to become "a home" and be alive with color.
Tips for installation:
This is as important as choosing the stone best suited to your decoration project
After unpacking the tiles, you need to wash them and dry
For installing the tiles it is recommended to use the Weber Set Marmo Plus adhesive, a fast setting flexible adhesive, suitable for the exterior; it can also be used for underfloor heating
Apply the Weber Color Comfort joint grout after installation for highlighting the natural stone; you have 30 shades to choose from
For a correct installation we recommend hiring an expert in natural stone installation
Tips for natural stone aftercare
Travertine is a hard and durable stone, yet for an extended lifetime you should keep in mind 3 steps: cleaning, sealing and aftercare
Clean the surface before sealing with LTP Grimex, available in our product range (approximately 1 L = 40-50 sqm)
We recommend sealing the surface with LTP MPG, a solution for polished surfaces or LTP Mattstone H2O, a water based solution. This procedure offers everyday protection against water drops, dust and difficult stains. This procedure seals the micro pores, preventing the water penetration of into the surface, so the stone will not stain so easily
For enhancing the color and highlight the natural stone beauty, we recommend LTP Color Intensifier
For cleaning and aftercare following the installation you can use LTP Waxwash cleaner that will not influence the sealed surface (1L = 700 sqm)
For difficult stains, use LTP Power Stripper and for dust stains use LTP Grout Stain Remover (1L = 30-40 sqm)
