Ceramic tile is made from clay, which is baked at very
high temperatures, resulting in an attractive and very
hard surface. Ceramic tile is very low maintenance,
particularly in terms of keeping the surface clean.
Ceramic tile retains virtually no dirt and can be kept
clean with water and a damp cloth or mop. Ceramic
tile is also naturally fire resistant and can actually help
to maintain a structure in the event of a fire, making
it popular choice of flooring material by the safety
conscious. To help you select your ceramic tile there
are some terms you should know before going
Glazed: Glazed ceramic tile has a facial surface
coating made from glass derivative, a hard, non-
porous, impermeable surface after firing. Color dyes
are blended to achieve the desired glaze color. The
glaze is then applied to the top surface of the unfired
tile and then fused to the tile’s surface during the
firing process. Glazed does not absorb moisture,
highly stain, scratch and fade resistant, hygienic, and
easy to clean throughout the body of the tile.
These tiles will stand very heavy foot traffic in all types of exterior and interior applications
Wall Tile: Wall tile is normally less durable than tile designed specifically for flooring. Most wall tile is glazed with a high-gloss or semi-gloss
surface. This glazed, glossy surface has a very low slip resistance, and is very slick when wet. Therefore, glazed wall tile is much more
suited to vertical or countertop applications rather than floors.
Floor Tile: Floor tiles are made more durable to withstand normal foot traffic. These tiles also have a more textured and/or matte surface,
as compared to wall tile, to improve slip resistance and enhance the overall appearance of the floor.
Wall/Floor Combinations: Many tiles are manufactured for use on both floors and walls. These tiles allow coordinating the floor and wall
tile within a room to achieve a very attractive and consistent look.
Porcelain Tile: Porcelain tiles made from a fine-grain clay body. A color pigment is mixed with the clay body powder prior to pressing and
firing, giving the finished tiles a consistent color throughout the tile. Porcelain tile is very dense and impermeable, which makes it highly
resistant to moisture, staining, and wear. Because of these features, porcelain tile will withstand years of heavy foot traffic while maintaining
its color and beauty.
Mosaic Tile: Mosaic tiles are small tiles-generally 2” by 2”or smaller-and always less than six square inches in area. Mosaic tiles are most
often mounted on paper, mesh, or adhesive dot mounted sheets to facilitate easier handling and installation.
