MarbleSil is a handmade marbled silicone material that has been developed over five years. MarbleSil starts as a clear solution and is then hand pigmented to each individual specification. Any colour is achievable, although a RAL or Pantone chart is usually used to create the desired colour. It is used for all interior purposes, from wallcoverings, flooring and furniture, through to outside areas such as swimming pools and yachts. MarbleSil can withstand extreme temperatures (from -59°C – 260°C) and is water resistant, heat proof, slip proof and does not support bacterial growth. MarbleSil can be infused to add excitement to any scheme. With many diverse properties, there is no limit to what can be achieved with this exciting material.



Marblo is a polymer-based solid surface material, which can be applied to residential, commercial, retail, kitchen, laboratory and hospital environments. Marblo materials come in a wide variety of colours and designs to fit customers’ needs and designs.

Marblo materials can be easily repaired and refinished back to their original condition – meaning they can be reused and therefore create less waste. Marblo has low-VOC (volatile organic compound) content, is low-emitting and is non-toxic and non-allergenic to humans.



The desire to use marble is everlasting. This is why Johnson Tiles has recently launched this stunning new range, called Strands. These admirable porcelain floor and wall tiles are a contemporary take on marble which carry the elegancy of real marble.

The range offers an extensive variety in size, colour and finish, allowing you to create original combinations and impressive spaces like no other. It is truly engaging and too tempting not to be used in your next scheme!
