Glazed porcelain tiles are ideal for the perfect flooring in your home. There are many differences between porcelain tiles and ceramic tiles for use on your floors or walls. Ceramic tiles are made from red or white clay and are fired then finished with a glaze that helps the pattern and colours to be sustained. These are normally easy to cut due to softer materials and have a PEI 0-3 rating. Porcelain tiles are made by dust pressed methods from porcelain clay that creates a fine grain and smooth face. These tiles offer more water resistance and frost resistance than ceramic tiles. Glazed porcelain tiles offer a surface that is resistant to wear and tear and a harder surface that is great for high traffic areas such as the kitchen or tea room. Full porcelain floor tiles have a colour and pattern that follows through to the base of the tile, so the patterns are never worn away like ceramic tiles.
Porcelain tiles are constructed using special dust press techniques from porcelain clay. This technique creates a tile, which boasts a smooth, fine grain surface. The process in which is used to make porcelain tiles makes them more resistant to water than ceramic tiles. Often porcelain tiles are given an additional coating of glaze, which heightens their durability greatly, making them very difficult to scratch or mark, thus they are perfect for kitchens and flooring.
