Tile Types - Porcelain

Porcelain tile
is a tile is typically 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.

Porcelain tiles:
  • have a much lower water absorption rate (less than 0.5%) than non-porcelain tiles making them frost resistant or frost-proof.
  • that are glazed are much harder and more wear and damage resistant than non-porcelain ceramic tiles, making them suitable for any application from the lightest to heaviest traffic in both residential and commercial environments.
  • carry the color and pattern through the entire thickness of the tile making them virtually impervious to wear and tear.
  • are available in matte, unglazed or a high polished finish.
