Porcelain tiles are generally made by the dust pressing method from Porcelain clays.
This results in a tile that is dense, impervious, fine grained and smooth with a sharply formed face.
Porcelain tiles usually have a very low water absorption rate (less than 0.5%!) making them frost resistant or even frost-proof.
Glazed porcelain tiles are much harder, meaning they are more wear and damage resistant than their ceramic counter-parts.
This makes a porcelain tile suitable for any application, ranging from light traffic to the heaviest residential and commercial traffic.
Full body porcelain tiles carry the colour and pattern through the entire thickness of the tile, making them significantly longer lasting to general wear.
Porcelain tiles are available in matt, unglazed or a high-polished finish.
