Lexington, KY: June 10, 2020 – Florida Tile has launched a new generation of metallic-inspired, color body porcelain tile. Industrial in its feel, Urban Foundry HDP provides the perfect foundation for distinctive, modern spaces. 

According to Tressa Samdal, Director of Marketing and Product Management, “There is a continued appreciation for interiors using reclaimed materials such as rusted metals, that inspired us to introduce a porcelain tile reflecting this aesthetic.  When you look at Urban Foundry HDP, you see a beautiful interplay of color, light effects, and a moderate degree of shade variation that makes it perfect for spaces with a weathered personality.” 

Urban FoundryHDP features four lustrous colors to choose from: Alumina* – a beautiful ashen silver/white; Cast Nickel – a medium silver/gray with hints of warmth like an aged coin; Graphite – a warm gray with hints of green and bronze; and Iron Oxide – layers of earthy rust and other burnished tones. A pressed 12×24, a 25-piece mosaic, and a 3×24 bullnose are offered in all four colors.

Manufactured using proprietary HDP—High Definition Porcelain® printing technology, Urban FoundryHDP is appropriate for all standard applications in both residential and commercial settings. It is entirely made in the USA in Florida Tile’s Green Squared® certified Advanced Manufacturing Center in Lawrenceburg, KY, of 40% pre-consumer recycled content, and is GREENGUARD® and Porcelain Tile certified.

* The color Alumina is manufactured utilizing a standard body in order to maintain the integrity of this lighter color.
