What is thick tile

For the definition of thick tiles, there is no "expressly stipulated" standard in the industry. Since the thickness of ordinary porcelain tiles is between 6㎜-15㎜, in most cases, the products with higher thickness than ordinary ceramic tiles are regarded as thick tiles. When buying ceramic tiles, many owners have this misunderstanding, thinking that the quality of thick tiles is better, and the heavier the weight, the more the weight. Admittedly, based on the inherent advantages of thick tiles in terms of thickness, its hardness, strength and firmness are indeed higher than ordinary tiles. However, thick tiles also have inherent disadvantages in paving, such as being unsuitable for wall mounting and increasing difficulty in paving.

Through the understanding of thick tiles, it is clear that the definition of thin tiles is also coming out. Obviously, thin tiles refer to tiles that are thinner than ordinary tiles, usually less than 6㎜. In recent years, with the "light and thin" market trend, thin tiles have become more and more popular. For consumers, the decorative effect of thin tiles is more beautiful, and the difficulty of paving is reduced; for ceramic tile merchants, thin tiles use less materials and lighter weight, reduce production costs and transportation costs, and have greater profit margins. However, due to the thinner thickness of thin tiles, some processes cannot be operated, and the strength and bearing capacity of ceramic tiles will also decrease.
