Porcelain tile has been a favorite flooring material in kitchens and baths for many years. It is a ceramic tile that can be glazed or unglazed. There is no clear difference between a ceramic tile and a porcelain tile except one is much more impervious to moisture than the other. It is created by mixing clay and other materials together and firing it at very high heat. This firing process hardens the tile and depending on the length of time and the temperature will result in how hard the tile will become and how impervious it will be to water. Ceramic tiles are generally not as hard as porcelain tiles because they are fired for a much shorter time.
Through-bodied porcelain is ideal for commercial locations because they withstand heavy foot traffic. The color won't fade because there is no glaze and if a tile does chip, the color is the same underneath, making the chip less noticeable. These tiles can also be installed in homes as flooring, on walls or countertops, and in wet locations such as the kitchen or bathroom. Glazed porcelain tile is made from porcelain (a mixture of clay, sand and minerals), fired in a kiln and has a glazed finish. The glaze is usually tinted and is a glass wear layer (liquid glass) that is baked into the surface and gives the tile its final color. If glaze is then polished, the tile must be sealed after installation to make it non-porous. The glaze finish makes this tile stain resistant and has more color and texture options.
