Glazed porcelain tiles are coated with liquid glass, and then baked so that the protection is impervious to wear and tear as well as stains. Unglazed tiles do not have a coated surface, and full body porcelain tiles don't show wear anyhow due to the colour and design being throughout the entire tile. These types of tiles have a PEI rating of 0-5 meaning they can be used in any area. PEI classes are 0 through 5. The porcelain enamel institute scale is one that is used to help detect areas that tiles should be used in. The glazed tiles that have the overall 0 to 5 rating can be used anywhere from no foot traffic to industrial traffic, making them ideal for use in your home.
Porcelain tile and ceramic tile both start off the same, being composed of more or less the same materials, such as clay and quartz. After formation, they are both fired to high temperatures. What spells out the difference between the ceramic white tile and porcelain tile is that the latter uses a more highly refined and purified clay, making the porcelain tile denser than the other tile. This is an extremely important difference, since being more dense means that porcelain tile absorbs far less moisture, making it both durable and stain resistant.
