Special projects require a special kind of process

Customized high quality

Throughout the world, Pentik is known for its top-quality ceramicware and Northern design. Clay has been Pentik’s core expertise since its establishment. Over the course of four decades this family business has learnt that clay can be turned into almost anything. Pentik Construction Ceramics manufactures ceramic tiles for unique facade and indoor construction projects.

Ceramic specialty tiles are extremely well suited to high-quality new buildings and properties being renovated that require flexibility and uncompromising expertise from tile design and production. Technically high-quality tiles are customized according to the customer’s wishes up to the design and clay recipe. The tiles are manufactured at Pentik’s roots: the ceramics factory in Posio, Finland.

Clay suits all purposes

Construction ceramic products can be used in wall and floor surfaces both outdoors and indoors, and they are also suitable for wet rooms. Tiles endure all weather conditions and air pollution and their surfaces stay clean.

We can also deliver facade elements, bricks in different shapes, tiles and clinker cut into shape for new buildings. Products can be glazed with different colors or left as they are.

Customer-specific processes

A project begins with creating a preliminary report. Facade tiles are always customized to the needs and wishes of the customer. The preliminary work includes drawing up the blueprints of the tile as well as clay, color and glazing experiments. Based on these, the perfect recipe for the tile is created.

Take time for the project’s follow-through

Especially when renovating facades, it pays off to get an early start to your project: the preliminary work may last 3–6 months when the old tiles of the property are examined and a recipe is honed to perfection with the intent of making the new tile resemble the old as much as possible.

Tile with a unique design

After the preliminary work, we know what recipe to use when manufacturing the tile. The preliminary work will determine the form of the unique tile extruder through which the clay is pressed and the right shape for the sample tile is created.

Manufacturing tiles is handicraft

After the sample tile is pressed, it is cut into tiles with the right measurements. Then the tiles are dried, a glazing is sprayed on them and the products are fired. All of this is done by hand. Manual labor makes even small order batches possible. It also guarantees that we can flexibly create different tiles in different sizes – just like the customer wishes.

Many ways of installation

After the tiles are fired, they are stored and are ready for delivering. Depending on the project, the tiles are installed either directly into the building’s facade or cast into the facade elements at the concrete factory.

Quality assurance every step of the way

The quality of the tiles is monitored throughout the production process. The first thing to be tested is the clay delivery arriving at the factory, and during the preliminary work, we create many different test samples with different clay and glaze recipes. Once the production process is finished, we check the tiles before delivering them to the customer.
