Within its ceramic tile collections, Agrob Buchtal offers and extensive assortment of slip-resistant tiles covering the most diverse areas of application.

Unique company in a competitive field

While there are, undeniably, various different companies producing ceramic tiles, Agrob Buchtal sets itself apart with an unique mind set and approach to various aspect of ceramic tile production. Examples of such unique points could be the game-changing HT coating that comes standard on most Agrob Buchtal tiles. Or that it produces not only tiles for indoor applications, but also for balconies and terraces, as well as ceramic tiles for facades. This demonstrates that the company is open minded to new ideas, and has the drive to pursue those new ideas and develop new techniques and products.

HT coating

In the pursuit of improving sound and heat insulation, architects pull towards hermetically sealing buildings. However, this causes the building to be unable to breathe, often compromising indoor air quality. Add to this that common products, such as floors, installation materials, cleaning agents and many more emit unpleasant odours or even VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and a space can become unpleasant, or even unhealthy to be in. To tackle this problem, Agrob Buchtal has developed a way for floors and walls to actively improve indoor air quality, without needing additional energy. The tiles' surface has TiO2 (titanium dioxide) burnt into it, which enables sunlight to activate the oxygen molecules in the air. Thanks to this, a wafer thin layer of water forms on the surface, enriched with activated oxygen. This breaks down and hinders growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungus and germs, makes cleaning easier as dirt doesn't adhere to the surface, and actively improves air quality by breaking down harmful chemicals in the air. This effect is life-long, as the titanium dioxide is burnt permanently into the surface. The result? Easier maintenance and cleaner air!

Complete packages

Unlike companies that focus on tiles for bathroom floors, or only manufacture ceramic mosaic tiles, Agrob Buchtal prides itself in offering complete packages. The German manufacturer offers collections that are aimed at a single space, such as the bathroom, but also collections that span multiple spaces. This means you can create a coherent theme throughout your home, matching floors and walls between different rooms. For example, bathroom floor and wall tiles. This is a classic application of ceramic tiles, but Agrob Buchtal takes it a step further. With collections that include both wall and floor tiles, as well as ceramic mosaic tiles and ceramic borders and trim lines, the design possibilities are endless. But that same collection might include floor and wall tiles for kitchens as well, to create that perfect, coherent look. But it does not stop there, as you can even match your terrace, balcony, and living spaces to that same look. If you decide to order such a complete package, we can, naturally, offer you a special price.

A large variety of products for different applications

Ceramic tiles are common in kitchens and bathrooms around the world, but have many more applications. For example, you can create a timeless, classy look on your terrace or balcony by using ceramic tiles, rather than more conventional options. This creates an unique look that will surely turn heads. But the options don't stop there, as Agrob Buchtal even makes tiles for facades. If you're looking to give any building an unique look, while having it actively improve air quality, surely give Agrob Buchtal ceramic tiles a thought.

A German quality brand

Agrob Buchtal is a true German brand. Proud of its centuries long history, and focussed on quality. This is why all production is located in Germany, at walking distance of the Research and Development centre, as well as the showroom. This offers a huge level of control over the manufacturing process and the quality of the manufactured products. So you can rest assured that every square centimetre of your Agrob Buchtal tile meets the highest quality standard!

Eco-mind set

With the growing global awareness that our planet needs to be cared for, companies have to limit their ecological impact more and more. And while some companies are reluctant to change their ways, others lead the way by proudly limiting their pollution beyond the legal requirements. One such company is Agrob Buchtal. The eco-mind set starts at the production plant, where all waste from manufacturing mistakes is recycled into the manufacturing process. But that's only the start, as the heat from the baking process is reused in other sections of the manufacturing line. In addition to that uses the company exclusively electric forklift trucks, minimises water consumption, and filters harmful substances from its emissions.

Endless design possibilities

Thanks to the different colours, but more importantly sizes, of tiles available, the number of different designs is practically endless. Stretched, horizontal tiles on the floor can visually make a room wider or narrower, which can make an oddly shaped room look more inviting. Similarly, you can use horizontal or vertical lines in wall tiles to make a space look taller or lower, to make it more spacious or more cosy. Another element that can change the mood is the colour of the joints and seams. Contrasting seams create a lively atmosphere, but can become visually "noisy". Seams that match the colour of the tile will look more understated, but might become a bit plain, depending on what room they're in. The available mosaic tiles add yet another dimension to the room design, as mosaic can be used to highlight individual curved walls, organic shapes, or draw attention to a carefully chosen spot in the room.

In a bathroom or kitchen you can create a modern look by integrating a pattern into the floor and/or walls. For example match the colour of the walking path with the colour of the sink and bath, to visually guide the way. Illuminated niches serve both as convenient storage space, and as highlighting interior design element. You can use these to feature a mosaic pattern or contrasting decorative elements.

Great features and high quality

Agrob Buchtal's ceramic tiles for walls and floors are well known to be extremely durable. These high-quality German products are hard wearing and scratch resistant. This ensures that you will have a good looking floor for many years to come.

The HT coating is one of the great features that sets Agrob Buchtal tiles apart from the competition. Unpleasant odours or even harmful substances such as formaldehyde in your home? Emissions from building materials can be a source of unhealthy indoor air. Paint, sealing materials and furniture as well as ovens and gas stoves emit pollutants such as formaldehyde or nitric oxides. HT coating is an appropriate tool to combat this phenomenon. This is because the activated oxygen arising from the photocatalytic process on the surface of the HT-coated tiles decomposes these volatile components in room air. The result: cleaner air! This is not only pleasant in the bathroom and kitchen but also ensures a healthy environment throughout the entire house.

The photocatalytic process acts like an air freshener here: when pollutant molecules come in contact with the tile surface, titanium dioxide as a light-activated catalyst immediately transforms them into mineral salts which are entirely harmless and which are then simply washed away the next time the tiles are cleaned. The result is significantly improved indoor air and a permanently pleasant and fresh living environment.

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is burnt insolubly and permanently into the ceramic surface at a high temperature. As a permanent catalyst, it facilitates a life-long reaction between light (photocatalysis), oxygen and humidity. This gives rise to activated oxygen and a hydrophilic, water-friendly ceramic surface. The activated oxygen undertakes three decisive functions. It breaks down microorganisms such as bacteria, fungus, and germs directly at the ceramic surface and hinders growth, it makes maintenance easier and improves indoor air quality. Therefore, HT technology sets new standards wherever cleanliness and hygiene are paramount.


For most tiles installation is straightforward: prepare the substrate, apply the glue, press the tiles in place, and finish the seams. However, for the façade tile systems installation traditionally is slightly more difficult. However, Agrob Buchtal has developed various systems to tackle these problems in different situations. Developed as an economical and design alternative to the KerAion facade systems, the KeraTwin® system is convincing by architectural flexibility and visual variety. In addition, the joints are realized in such a way that the construction is optimally protected against driving rain. Now, the system KeraTwin® K20 with its new, innovative T-profile K20 ensures an even more rapid and simpler installation: as the fastenings for the ceramic panel are already integrated in the T-profile, only one single profile remains to be aligned and mounted. Flexible, low-cost installation also on problematic bases is guaranteed by the “Omega” profile variant, which permits, among other things, the free planning of the panel lengths. In addition, well-thought-out system components ensure a timesaving installation in the case of sophisticated project solutions. Standard panel thicknesses at all formats and the low own weight facilitate the transport and the handling.


Even uncoated tiles are accepted as particularly pleasant floor and wall coverings as their mineral nature mean that they're practically emission-free. However, here too, HT coating demonstrates that a lot more is possible! As HT-coated tiles break down odours and even clean the surrounding indoor air of pollutants such as nitric oxides or formaldehyde right through to tobacco smoke.

Market research studies, tests and above all practical experiences prove that ceramics present excellent properties in comparison with other floor and wall covering materials. Especially its lasting beauty, ease of maintenance and high functionality at the same time are decisive criteria both in private and public areas. Agrob Buchtal products are generally recognised to be high-quality articles. All glazed and unglazed materials have treated surfaces, which are ideal for problem-free cleaning. When using any cleaning agent, please make sure to comply with the instructions for use and danger indications provided by the manufacturer. We cannot assume liability for any damage resulting from the non-compliance with these instructions and indications. Never use cleaning agents containing hydrofluoric acid or its compounds (fluorides). They attack the ceramics even if diluted with plenty of water.

Unpleasant odours and pollutants such as formaldehyde or nitric oxides are decomposed by the tiles' surface, creating a significant improvement in indoor air quality. This is not only particularly convenient in sanitary facilities or kitchen areas – it also makes for more pleasant working conditions in company buildings and a healthy climate in private areas. Water does not form droplets on the surface, which ineffectively pearl off or dry leaving unattractive marks, but rather forms a wafer-thin film. This water film ensures that even the tiniest particles of dirt and stubborn residue such as grease are thoroughly hydrated, detaching them from the surface and enabling them to be simply wiped off. This saves time and cleaning agents as well as representing a bonus for man and the environment.
