Porcelain tiles are the contemporary tiles of today. They can be used to achieve a minimalistic look in commercial and domestic applications as porcelain is an extremely hard wearing and durable tile. They are available in a diverse range of colours and sizes and finshes such as in matt, unglazed, semi-polished or a high polished finish.
Porcelain tiles are generally made by a 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 usually have a much lower water absorption rate than non-porcelain tiles (often less than 0.5%) so they are frost resistant or even frost-proof. Glazed porcelain tiles are much harder and more wear and damage resistant than non-porcelain ceramic tiles, making them suitable for any application up to heavy residential and light commercial traffic.
Full body porcelain tiles carry the colour and pattern through the entire thickness of the tile making them virtually impervious to wear and are suitable for any application to high traffic commercial or industrial applications.
