Ceramic facades – revolutionising a 3000-year-old industry

Extrusion has been used for thousands of years to manufacture ceramic facades and tiles. Now, z.trusion® opens new opportunities for architects and interior designers to explore new ground with indented patterns and structures in ceramic facades and tiles. The rational production in a single step means that features that were previously far too costly for large scale production are now entirely within reach.
