Details

For thousands of years, builders have chosen ceramic and porcelain tile for their building projects. But, when we begin to factor in how environmentally-friendly ceramic and porcelain tile products are, we’ll see that these tiles are unsuitable when building green. In addition, with the increasing price of ceramic and porcelain tile (due to the limited resources and processing step associate with these materials) the necessity to replace the traditional ceramic and porcelain tile with more so called sustainable material are vital which motivate this invention.

 

The name of the invention is “MeSTi” a short form for Malacca-eco-Stylish-Tiles. The uniqueness of “MeSTi” tiles are it’s made from 100% recycle High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) bottle such as liquid detergent bottle, bucket, house appliances, etc. which halved the costs of the conventional tiles without compromise the performances. “MeSTi” tiles are light in weight, tough, excellent impact and water resistance, durable, good sliding and damping properties make it as a ‘MUST’ choice for new home builder.

The stylish luxurious pattern and texture design of “MeSTi” tiles conveying elegance and tranquility to create custom experience. Compared with conventional tiles, its only require two manufacturing step to fabricate “MeSTi” tiles which consist of shredding the recycle HDPE bottle and molded in a hot press machine.
