What are the types of ceramic tiles


Floor tile material is a key element that cannot be ignored in home decoration. Because floor tiles can not only have the effect of decorating and designing homes, but also can create different design styles of home functional areas. Below, let’s take a look at what types of ceramic tile materials are there?

Tile material type

1. Glazed tiles

Glazed tiles are bricks whose surfaces have been glazed. The surface is fired together with glaze. The main body is divided into two types: pottery clay and china clay. The back of the pottery clay is red, and the back of the porcelain clay is off-white. The surface of glazed tiles can be made of various patterns and patterns, which are more colorful and patterned than polished. Because the surface is glaze, the wear resistance is not as good as polished.

2. Polished tiles

Polished tiles are a kind of bright bricks that are polished on the surface of the whole body brick body, which is a kind of whole body bricks. Compared with full-body tiles, the surface of polished tiles is much smoother. Polished tiles are hard and wear-resistant, suitable for use in most indoor spaces except toilets and kitchen tiles.

3. Vitrified tiles

In order to solve the dirty problem of polished tiles, another kind of vitrified tiles has appeared. Vitrified tiles are actually full tiles. The surface is smooth but does not require polishing, so there is no problem of polishing pores. Vitrified tile is a kind of reinforced polished tile, which is fired at high temperature, and the texture is harder and more wear-resistant than polished tiles. There is no doubt that its price is also higher. Vitrified tiles are mainly used for floor tiles.

4. Mosaic

The volume of mosaic is the smallest among all kinds of tiles, and it is commonly known as brick. Mosaic gives people a nostalgic feeling, and is the material used to decorate walls and floors in the 1990s. There are many variations in the combination of porcelain mosaic tile. For example, on a flat surface, there can be multiple ways of expression: abstract patterns, jumps or transitions in shades of the same color, and embellishment of other decorative materials such as tiles.

5. Whole body brick

The so-called full body tiles means that in the cloth process, all the powder materials distributed on the press preparation table are the same powder material. After firing, the tiles will have the same pattern and color from the bottom to the surface. The surface of the whole body brick is not glazed, and the material and color of the front and back sides are the same. The whole body brick is a kind of wear-resistant brick. Although there are varieties such as bleeded whole body brick, relatively speaking, its design is not as good as glazed brick.

We also know that the name of the whole body brick is directly related to the consistency of its reverse and front colors. When we buy, we must not be sloppy. Take the tiles and take a careful look at the colors on the front. Then compare the colors on the back to see if the colors on the front and back are the same. If they are inconsistent, it means that the quality of the polished tiles is poor. When observing, you must be careful. Some colors with small differences can be observed with great care!

a. Deformation

The flatness of ceramic tiles is an important criterion for identifying good or bad, and the same is true for identifying polished tiles. High-quality whole-body bricks will not deform. When viewed from the side, it should be a straight line. When we are making selection, we can pick up the tile and observe from the side whether it is a straight line. If we are worried about the error in our observation, we can also use a ruler to measure it. It is found that the side of the whole body tile is not straight, so you have to directly ask the merchant to change one. Such tiles are not only inferior in quality, but also cause trouble when laying them.

b. Wear and compression

In the ranks of home decoration, the wear resistance of whole body bricks is notoriously good. Therefore, there should be no scratches or cracks on heavy objects. When we choose, we might as well ask the merchant to put other tiles on the polished tiles for a test to see if there are scratches on the surface. Scratches appear and the quality is poor. During the inspection, we can also directly stand up to see if there are cracks on the surface, so as to judge its resistance to pressure.

c. Brick specification selection

Different brands of bricks generally have different sizes, but the common specifications of bricks are 300mm×300mm, 400mm×400mm, 500mm×500mm, 600mm×600mm, 800mm×800mm, etc. When we buy, it is best to first measure the size of the house, the number of polished tiles, and decide according to our actual situation to avoid waste.

d. Style

For house decoration, the choice of style is diverse. Before choosing tiles, we must consider the design style of the room. We can determine the color or pattern of the polished tiles according to the indoor area, lighting conditions and our own preferences. Generally, the room is small and I suggest that you choose monochrome tiles.

e. Analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of bricks

Whole body tiles are often used in the decoration of living room, lobby, bedroom and other areas. The polished hardness of the surface can be compared with that of natural stone. It has low water absorption and good abrasion resistance. Due to the rough surface, its slip resistance is also good. Moreover, its price is relatively reasonable. However, due to its unique structure, the effect of decoration is relatively single, which will affect the overall aesthetic effect to a certain extent.
