25 Oct What a porcelain tile he is?
Today, porcelain tiles and tiles are active rivals for the primacy in popularity in the consumer market. Now it will be difficult to determine which of the facing materials is more popular. Despite the similarity in the names, both products are absolutely independent, differ in the production method, composition used by technologies and, as a result, qualitative characteristics.
The main differences are the specifics of production. The technology of production of porcelain tile allows the formation of the maximum density and strength of the structural coating, but at the same time, with a minimum number of pores. When comparing the performance and quality characteristics of ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles, the second has a clear superiority. He has a very high indicator of wear resistance and margin of safety, which allows it to be used in a wide range of spheres. This material is able to withstand mechanical influences, several times higher than the force of impact. It is this advantage that allows the use of tiles as a floor cladding. By the way, the product of Meissen, among other things, has high frost resistance, which also allows you to use it for cladding in street conditions. Such qualities made it especially in demand in the construction market in the world.
There is a fairly significant difference in ways of staining materials. The drawing is applied to the tile only on the front part, unlike porcelain tile, where completely different technologies are used for tinting. To create a unique, textured image, not a finished product is painted, but the source composition. If we consider such a product in a cut, then the picture will not change. In ceramic granite, the relief is applied along the entire length and thickness. During the manufacture of cladding, in raw materials, various mineral pigments are added. When using this technology, the painting of the product is distributed very evenly throughout the entire area, this is what helps it not to lose color intensity. In the case of tiles, the pattern is applied to the finished product. As a result, over time, he can fade and wipe up. Well, the last difference between these products is a unique natural image of granite. If you look closely, it is clear that it has natural patterns and interspersed, very often they cannot be distinguished from natural stone.
