Types of photoceramic tiles
Standard ceramic plaques
Standard tiles are produced with modern technologies using pressure molds. These plaques are thinner and flatter then the convex tiles. The process of production of our standard ceramics guarantees the repeatability and the consistency in sizes. The margin of error in the size produced is close to none. The colours and lines on th photos fired on our standard tiles are sharper than on the convex plaques. The standard tile itself is whiter than the convex tile so the same photograph on both these tiles may differ in colour. Our standard plaques guarantee a more precise transfer of the photo in terms of colours and sharp lines but also, there is no spherical distortion.
Standard tiles are most commonly used in our production. The classic shape fits well on most gravestones. This is the best choice for customers who prefer timeless look and neutral and simple solutions.
 
Convex ceramic tiles
Convex tiles are produced in Poland using the traditional method of pouring the liquid porcelain to the cast moulds. They do not stay consistent in size due to the changes in the mould during the production process. When it comes to convex plaques, the small differences in size are a natural outcome and it does not suggest any fault in the production itself. Please, take this into consideration while ordering a convex tile. This type of ceramic plaques are finished with a harder layer of glaze that give these photoceramics unique character and create an effect of softening the photograph. The lines on the photo seem a bit blurred. Convex plaques are mostly used in the process of renvation an old gravestone where some older photoceramics can be reused and there is a need to renovate only some of those. Convex tiles are than used due to the fact that they resamble the older photoceramics more - especially in shape and thickness. Moreover the colour of convex tiles is more similar to the older, cream-colored plaques. This beige tint is not a flaw but the characteristic feature of this product. Even though some people may not enjoy the warmer tone of convex tiles, many people see the beauty exactly in this quality.
Thin ceramic tiles
Thin tiles are the newest product of OPAL Fotoceramika. The are produced with a durable technical ceramic. This allows for even higher flexibility in choice of the gravestone arrangement due to the minimal thickness of the tile: 1 mm! There is no translucency, even on the darkest gravestones. Our thin plaques fit well with the modern looking memorials. We recommend those tiles for the customers that prefer clean, modern and simple look.
 
Our selection of tiles can be diveded into those three categories: standard, convex and thin plaques. The thickness of our tiles is as follows: standard - about 7 mm, convex - about 1,2 mm and thin - 1 mm! All of our products have this in common: they are totally resistant to the changing weather conditions!
Each product from Opal Fotoceramika has the moisture absorption under 1% so we can guarantee they are frost resistant. Sunlight, freezing cold and suddent temperature changes do not affect photoceramics produced in Opal Fotoceramika.
Instruction for mounting the photoceramic

The safest mounting method of standard and convex photoceramics that guarantees durability and resistance to atmospheric conditions is to use the technical mounting silicone. In Opal Fotoceramika we include a free tube of the silicone to each colourfull plaque and for individual customers - to each order! You can also purchase additional tubes in our shop.
