New plank and tile range offers an advanced contaminant-free, easy to cut or shape base material


There are a variety of base elements used for plank and tile flooring options in this country, such as MDF. However, a recent introduction from Germany is set to scoop the pool in terms of material advantages and sheer ease of use.

A stable ceramic-based carrier board – but lighter and easier to work with – Ceramin offers architects and interior designers a fresh material option, says Garth Dye, managing director of Creative Flooring, sole distributor of Ceramin products in New Zealand.

"Ceramin's components are bonded at low temperatures, in a low emissions production process," says Dye. "This contemporary base material has many advantages, including being completely waterproof, robust, lightweight and easy to cut or shape with a Stanley knife. It's also extremely stable and won't shift, or move, when exposed to changes in temperature."

There are three principal products underpinned by this contaminant-free Ceramin base.

Neo.2 is a go-to residential plank and tile flooring option, offered in a variety of sizes. The decor pattern – and there are many options – is printed directly onto the Ceramin flooring.

The Sono range is mainly in natural-look finishes and is ideally suited to commercial, heavy-traffic floor or wall surfaces.

Last, there is Vario. Offered in a variety of tile formats, this product is ideal for both wet and general areas. It can be laid directly over existing tiles, saving time, hassle and money.
