About Porcelain Tiles

porcelain tile clearance

Porcelain tiles are ceramic tiles with a water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent that are used to cover floors and walls. They can either be unglazed or glazed, also called honed or polished.

Porcelain tile is a tile that is generally made by the dust pressed method from porcelain clays which result in a tile that is dense, impervious, fine grained and smooth, with a sharply formed face.

Glazed porcelain tiles are much harder and more wear and damage resistant than non-porcelain ceramic tiles, making them suitable for any application from light traffic to the heaviest residential and light commercial traffic. Full body porcelain tiles carry the color and pattern through the entire thickness of the tile making them virtually impervious to wear and are suitable for any application from residential to the highest traffic commercial or industrial applications. These porcelain tiles are used as kitchen tiles, bathroom tiles and so on. Porcelain tiles are available in matte, unglazed or a high polished finish.

Thanks to its partially vitreous structure and high degree of internal cohesion, porcelain tile is hard and highly resistant to breakage and abrasion. These characteristics are governed by international standards, allowing comparisons to be made in the basis of objective values. 
2. Impermeability
Porcelain tiles are compact and non-porous material, making it impermeable and resistant to staining. This means that tiles are quick and easy to clean, as well as having good frost resistance.
3. Safety
Unlike many other materials, FAP porcelain tiles are noncombustible, they do not release fumes or toxic gases in event of fire and they have a flame-retarding action, thus reducing fire damege.
4. Shapes and Sizes
Today's Italian porcelain tiles come in modular sizes with lengths ranging from a few centimeters to more than a meter, so you can choose from an enormous range.
5. Health and Well-being
Porcelain wall and floor tiles are an inert material with a composition that prevents the release of any substances that are harmful for health. And unlike other surfaces and objects, they do not trap dust, pollen or germs, allowing them to be cleaned effectively so as to minimize health risks.
