The water absorption rate in porcelain tiles is lower than ceramic tiles making them frostproof. These tiles work best from low to high foot traffic areas in both residential and commercial spaces such as mall, office and airport spaces. The glazed finish porcelain tiles are harder, making them more damage resistant than ceramic tiles. These tiles are available in unglazed, matte and high polish finishes.

2. What is the difference between full-body tiles, unglazed and glazed? Glazed means the tile is coated with liquid glass and is baked at high temperatures. The glaze also protects the tile from stains and offers a wide variety of designs, textures and colours. On the other hand, the unglazed tiles are not coated. In full-body porcelain tiles, the surface colour extends throughout the tile.

7. How often should I clean the tile? As dirt and grime quickly build up in the kitchen, it is advised to clean the tiles every 2 to 3 days, whereas clean the floor and bathroom tiles once a week. Use mats or rugs in high foot traffic areas to prevent dirt from building up.

8. What is a rectified tile? Tiles that are cut or sawed after the firing process to get the exact edge and dimensions is a rectified tile. This results in minimal grout lines making the joints between the tiles almost seamless.

9. What is a PEI rating? Based on the tile’s surface enamel resistance to abrasion, the Porcelain Enamel Institute(PEI) gives a rating called PEI rating. The rating varies from class 0 to 5 according to its properties.

10. Can I cut or drill a porcelain tile? Yes, you can. Use a rail cutter for a straight cut in porcelain tile. For more intricate shapes, use an electric cutter that has diamond coated blades.
