Cement-look

Porcelain Tiles

Glazed

With the development in technology, glazed tiles can be produced to simulate almost any look. The introduction of ink jet printers in tile factories has revolutionised the production of glazed tiles. This new technology also allows accurate printing on an uneven surface so a wood or stone product can be simulated in look and feel. The main advantage of this is that natural stone and wood requires ongoing maintenance and sealing, while a glazed porcelain will only require basic cleaning and no maintenance. Glazed tiles also provides a non-porous surface which cannot stain.

Full Bodied

Although full bodied tiles are not as diverse in design as glazed porcelain tiles, they make up for this in the strength department. Full bodied tiles also offer variance in texture which allows a flow of colour from indoors to outdoors with a change in texture offering a non-slip surface in wet areas. The colour of the tile is consistent from top to bottom and there is no surface glaze that can wear off, making full bodied tiles ideal for high traffic areas. They are highly vitrified offering a stain resistant surface despite not having a glazed surface. They do not require any ongoing maintenance other than general cleaning.

DECORATIVE

Ceramic

Ceramic tiles are similar to porcelain tiles,and while some companies use the terms interchangeably, they are actually very different. Ceramic tiles are not as dense and have a higher absorption rate. This means that it is not frost-proof, and it may chip or damage more easily than porcelain tiles. Despite these differences, ceramic tiles are a very popular choice for floors and walls. The tile is coated with a special glaze that protects and seals it. This keeps the tile from absorbing stains while improving the durability of each piece. The glaze is also what gives ceramic tile its colour and pattern.
