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.
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.
