When it comes to properties, ceramic and vitrified tiles are both products of men or man made products, as it is popularly called. Ceramic are created from clay. The clay body is topped with a ceramic glaze. On the other hand, vitrified tiles are made by fusing silica and clay. The mixture are then heated or placed under high – fiery temperatures, which would then result to a non – porous tile with glass – like texture. The vitrified type doesn't need additional glaze to be added on to it.
The composition of vitrified tiles is homogenous in nature. Ceramic tiles only have a decorative glaze on top of its clay layer. To achieve a glossy look, vitrified tiles are manually polished. Ceramic tiles however bases its beauty to the durability of the glaze applied over it. However, most glazes are not that durable and scratch resistant and over time, it yellows, it cracks and it chips. Both vitrified and ceramic tiles are difficult to stain because of its non – porous properties. However, the grout that places them intact is the one who is more likely to be stained.
