There was a time in the past when porcelain was synonymous with decorative pieces such as vases, chinaware, figurines, and the like. The misconception that porcelain was fragile or delicate was common. However, the many uses of porcelain have grown through time, and it continues to be a valuable material in the dental profession for dental prosthesis and dental veneers. Today, porcelain is a major industrial material used in insulation because porcelain is highly resistant to heat, resistant to abrasion, and is non-porous. That is why porcelain makes excellent floor tiles for both residential and commercial use.
It can be used as flooring material or can be used on walls. The glazed version is favored for bathroom walls. It has a low water absorption rate so it is ideal for areas that may potentially become wet. These types of tiles are graded based on their hardness and the ability to resist water absorption. There is a scale that is set that rates the Porcelain tile from zero to five with the hardest being five. The harder tiles are used in flooring and wall applications while the lower rated material is used as an electrical insulator is appliances and other electronic devices. It is extremely chip resistant and is perfectly permissible to be used on counter top surfaces, in many instances Porcelain tile is not only more resistant than natural stone but it also can be easier to care for. It does not require any special sealants or treatments and can be less absorbent than natural stone.
