World leader in designing and manufacturing H and U-type firing supports.

Ceramic supports for roof tiles have played a key role in the industrialization of the manufacturing process and Imerys Kiln Furniture has been a pioneer in their development.

Kiln furniture for roofing tiles products are made of Cordierite-Mullite. 
Several compositions have been developed to ensure the best resistance for your operating conditions.

Made-to-order engobes 

Engobes are a mixture of minerals applied to a roof tile before glazing for decoration and to make the tile more durable to weathering. 

Imerys Ceramics offers a wide variety of colors with either matt or brilliant finishes enabling consumers to make an original feature of their roof tiles for example for new buildings, or even to imitate the patterns on old weathered roof tiles which usually take years to develop.

Imerys has over 100 references for engobes, and each one has been designed for a specific customer.
