Ceramic tiles are tiles which are made from ceramic materials like earthenware and porcelain. Tiles are simply flat slabs of material which can be used in a range of applications, including flooring, countertops, roofing, walls, and showers. There are numerous styles of ceramic tiles available, from terra-cotta roofing tiles used in Mission-style architecture to delicate hand-painted porcelain tiles intended for ornamental splashbacks in kitchens.

Ceramic & Porcelain…Is there a difference?

 

Porcelain tiles are also considered Ceramic or stoneware tiles; each type of tile is made from a different composition, and that is what determines the tile’s body color, texture and density, the primary ingredient in the composition of true porcelain tile is finely-ground sand. Unlike ceramic, processing of the porcelain composition involves pressure and extremely high temperature. Because of its density and composition of natural ingredients, porcelain tile has excellent qualities with a water absorption rate of less than 0.5%.
