Ceramic and Porcelain Tile
It is commonly used for floors, showers, tubs, and counters. It is made from clay, sand or glass. It is easy to maintain clean and resistant. It is one of the most cost effective choices for flooring.
When it comes to colors and finishes, the sky is the limit. Some ceramic tiles patterns look like marble, travertine or wood.
The words ceramic and porcelain tile have been used interchangeably however; there are differences between both types of tile. One major difference is the water absorption rate. Porcelain tile should have an absorption rate of less than .5%

Are made with clay, minerals and water
These tiles are then fired and glazed because the ceramic is porous. This is where the color and look comes from.

How is Ceramic tiles made
The process is ancient and the resulting benefits are many: beauty, durability, practicality and versatility.
Ceramic tile is a work of art you walk on -- a spectacular entryway, a refreshing bath/spa surface, a gourmet kitchen’s feast for the eyes.
Understanding how ceramic is made provides you with knowledge of it right from its birth. That’s important information because these are the materials you’ll be living with for years to come.
Porcelain floor tiles are made by materials featuring the lowest water absorption levels, which means the quantity of water that the slab can absorb under certain conditions.
This feature (that is also one of the two parameters on which the EN ISO standards classification is based) also results in the highest level of bending strength, that is to say, the maximum tension that the material, subject to an increasing bending action, can bear before breaking.
Amongst the most significant features of porcelain stoneware is also the high abrasion resistance, which means the resistance of the surface against the action related to the movement of bodies, surface or materials in contact with it.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning the porcelain tiles with pure water is not enough and we strongly recommend not to use substances such as naphtha oil, vinegar etc… Specifically designed cleaners are required in order to remove the calcareous wastes of mortar and grouts that adhere to the dirt.
