Ceramic tiles

Comments Off on Ceramic tiles

Ceramic tile is a mixture of clay and other natural materials. The special clay are mined from the earth, shaped, colored and then fired in kilns. Most ceramics tiles have either white or red body coloration underneath the glazed, colored top layer.

Porcelain tile is a newer form of ceramic tile and extremely popular among homeowners. Porcelain tiles are composed of fine porcelain clay and fired at much higher temperatures than ceramic tiles. This process makes porcelain tile denser, less porous, much harder and less prone to moisture and stain absorption than ceramic tiles. For these reasons, most porcelain tiles are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations.
