The introduction of the Dry Digital System (DDS), a digital press technology by Rocersa, is revolutionising the industry by changing the development of ceramic tiles from superficial to three-dimensional. This full digital technology has already been awarded the Alfa de Ora prize by the Spanish Association of Ceramics and Glass.
The printing of the design is no longer a superficial element, as it is developed within the body of the piece. Each piece is manufactured in the press, layer by layer, and it is possible for each layer to be made from different materials and each to have an exclusive design.
A totally natural product is created by mixing clays to create a tile with improved technical and aesthetic characteristics. DDS is a full digital process, making it more efficient as exact quantities are applied to each piece during the processing of each tile.
It is also more sustainable as less water is used, the tile does not contain enamel and sludge, which usually needs to be managed as waste, is not generated during the cleaning processes. Before the arrival of DDS, ceramics always aimed to imitate other materials such as wood, marble or cement. However, products created using this technology express an identity that is 100% unique.
One of the collections created with this technology is Hardwood, which simulates a rustic style of wood in a wide variety of colours, including grey, dark, ivory, oak and walnut, as well as graphics with each piece having difference nuances. Tiles will not go unnoticed and can adapt to any environment, giving the space character.
Another collection created with DDS is Illusion, which is inspired by natural stone that combines different strata and sediments, making the tiles shine naturally according to the light on them. Tiles are available in a single tone, graphite or matt finish in a stone appearance that will give any space a real feeling of naturalness.
The Renoir collection, which was developed using DDS, is a bold marble-style collection that gives conventional marble real competition, by maintaining the prestige of a natural marble but improving its performance thanks to ceramic material. This collection is white, making spaces more luminous and allowing them to include dynamic decoration.
