These sleek and modern Bio-Luminumâ„¢ tiles [1] are made of reclaimed aluminum from retired airplanes [2]! The aluminum comes from airplane fuselages which are melted into blocks and then sliced to create a lightweight textured tile. 100 percent recycled [3] and recyclable, these durable tiles are suitable for high-traffic flooring as well as high-end wall treatments.
