Daltile launches Lava Finish

Home News Daltile launches Lava Finish

Daltile Lava FinishDallas, Texas—Daltile has developed the Lava finish, a unique, proprietary finish for quartz surfaces that creates the most realistic, natural stone feel available on the market today, according to the company. Liberty Black is the first product to feature Lava finish.

“Our new Lava finish offers the most natural stone feel of any quartz product on the market today,” said Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Dal-Tile. “Quartz is a man-made material that proficient manufacturers can use to produce the look of stone in virtually unlimited colors and designs with a high degree of visual authenticity. Daltile has now taken this expertise one step higher. We have engaged in extensive research and development with the foremost experts in the field of abrasives to achieve our new, ultra-realistic Lava finish, stone surface texture in quartz.”

According to Viana, the resulting authentic stone feel replicates natural stone in general, not specifically lava stone. “We chose the term Lava finish to represent our new surface texture, because the achieved surface has a little bit of a flow to its tactility, reminiscent of gently flowing lava.”

Daltile is debuting its new Lava finish on Liberty Black, a brand-new product currently launching nationwide into Daltile’s existing extra-large 136 x 79 One Quartz slab line.

According to the company, Liberty Black is a classic, deep black marble visual against a midnight black background with flowery vein details that create an open white vein pattern with delicate white speckle accents.

Liberty black is available in ¾-inch and 1 ¼-inch thickness with a choice of Lava finish or a polished finish. Liberty Black is suitable for use as walls or countertops.

“Daltile’s One Quartz extra-large slabs exemplify how quartz combines the beauty of marble and limestone visuals with durability and low maintenance,” said Viana. “With quartz, you can add gorgeous natural stone looks to your home’s design in a material that stands up to real life activity, perfect for kitchens. Our One Quartz slabs are non-porous, scratch resistant, stain resistant and can be used on walls and countertops.”

Liberty Black is made in the USA with imported material in Dal-Tile’s quartz plant in Dickson, Tenn. The quartz produced in this facility is made using proprietary design technologies, the most advanced decorative capabilities, the highest levels of gloss and clarity and exclusive colors and designs, according to the company.
