Porcelain tiles may be classified into natural, glazed, and polished tiles. The natural porcelain tile normally does not undergo any further finish after it is exposed to high temperature. This type of tile may be referred to as unglazed or through body tile where the colour goes all the way through. The glazed tile is coated with liquid glass that allows the manufacturer to put in a variety of designs and play around with colours. It comes out glossy and is one of the easiest to maintain. They are highly recommended as walls or accents in bathrooms and kitchen. The polished porcelain, on the other hand, goes through a more refined process and comes out looking almost like a granite finish or has a glossy effect without the glaze. In choosing the perfect ceramic porcelain tiles for your finishing, you must know the colour combination or contrast in the areas where you will install the tiles, and the kind of exposure the tiles may be subjected to. You may discuss these with your architect or interior designer, or you may refer to our website, and get in touch with us so we can assist you the best way we can.
Sales of floor tiles in the U.S. and Canada have doubled in slightly over a decade, and the popularity of tiled floors continues to increase at a dramatic rate. The rise in tile sales can be attributed to two factors primarily: a determined and well-thought-out effort developed and sustained by marketing and sales forces within the industry; and by constant and significant improvements achieved by tile manufacturers over the past couple of decades. In slightly over twenty years we've come from fairly soft ”knob-back” floor tiles made from terracotta-like clays to extremely dense dust pressed porcelains that are all but indestructible. Walk into any tile salesroom today, and you will find mostly porcelain tiles displayed.
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.
