Dry Press

Worldwide, dry press is the most common tile production method. In this method, dry clay powder is used instead of regular clay. Large steel moulds compress the powder and form the tiles under high pressure, before tiles are glazed and fired in a tunnel kiln. The process is highly automated and suitable for the efficient and economic production of very large quantities of tiles with low tolerances. Dry pressed tiles are highly standardised and have a neutral, clean appearance.
