511 Porous Plus Sealer



Perhaps the most versatile tile Zia produces, with endless colorways, patterns, and shapes, Zia strives to offer the world’s best curated collection of encaustic cement tiles. While generally consistent in appearance, each handmade tile is inherently unique. Durable and versatile, matte cement tile is an easy choice for many installations.

Proper installation and protection of cement tile is key, so please ensure you work with an installer who has experience specifically installing cement tile, and who has carefully reviewed Zia’s installation guide.

Cement tiles are made by hand, one at a time, using mineral pigments, cement, a mold, and a hydraulic press. The individual tile patterns are made by manually applying separate pigments, one by one, in a handmade brass mold. Cement tiles are not fired; there is no glaze layer on the surface of the tile. They derive their durability from the combination of finely dehydrated cement and a coarse sand and cement layer. The pigment layer is hydraulically pressed into the surface and becomes a part of the tile.

We ship our tiles anywhere that USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL, and any LTL carrier can reach! If you live in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, or a country outside of the United States, please email or call us for a custom freight quote. Our in stock samples typically ship out within 2 business days of order receipt from our Los Angeles warehouse. Special order and custom design samples are possible with a longer lead time.

All normal tile orders will deliver using LTL carrier service and are curbside delivery. The LTL trucking company that is contracted to deliver your order will contact you to arrange a specific date and timeframe for curbside delivery.

We offer all customers the option to order samples through our website by clicking on the Request a Sample button each tile page. All sample orders are limited to up to 4 per tile design. We make every effort to ship all samples within the same shipment, but some samples may ship separately if specific samples are out of stock at the time the order is placed.

Some samples of special order tiles may be available and are limited to 1 sample per customer due to the limited amount of special order tile samples we have on-hand. Frequently, special order sample tiles will have a lead time that matches the order lead time listed on each individual tile page.
