Do you really know the difference between tiles and tiles?


Many people who don’t understand tiles think that tiles and tiles are the same, but in fact they are not. There is still a big difference between the two. If you don’t understand the difference between tiles and tiles, it is very likely in the decoration process. Will buy the wrong materials. So what are the differences between tiles and tiles?


The so-called ceramic tiles are fire-resistant metal oxides and semi-metal oxides, which are ground, mixed, pressed, glazing, and sintered. The process of forming an acid- and alkali-resistant porcelain or stone building or decorative material is always called a ceramic tile. The raw materials are mostly mixed with clay, quartz sand, etc. Polished tiles and antique tiles are all ceramic tiles.

Porcelain refers to a thin-layer patch with a secondary surface for the wall surface. It is a kind of interior wall tile with a smooth surface. It belongs to the polished tile in the whole body tile category: it is a whole body tile. It is a kind of bright brick which is polished on the surface of the body, which is a kind of whole body brick.

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 kitchens, such as balconies and exterior wall decorations. On the basis of the use of bleed-through technology, polished tiles can make a variety of imitation stone and wood effects.

Compared with ordinary glazed tiles, the difference is mainly manifested in the color of the glaze. Antique tiles are ordinary tiles, which are basically the same as magnets. The so-called antique refers to the effect of the tiles. It should be called antique effect tiles, antique tiles are not difficult to clean. The difference is that in the firing process, the technical content of antique tiles is relatively high. After being pressed by thousands of tons of hydraulic press, they are sintered at a high temperature of 1000 degrees to make them have high strength and strong wear resistance. The antique tiles have been carefully developed. The brick has the characteristics of waterproof, non-slip and corrosion resistance.

◆The difference between tiles and tiles

One: Concept

Porcelain refers to pieces, generally used to decorate walls surface. However, the tiles are not in direct contact with the wall, but have a certain distance from the wall. Although tiles can also be used to decorate the wall, the tiles are a whole piece of brick, not a piece. After pasting, they are completely attached to the wall and fixed with cement sand.

Two: Thickness

Although ceramic tiles and tiles have a porcelain character, there is a big difference in thickness. The thickness of the tiles is relatively thin and the weight is light. But the tiles are thicker and the weight is heavier. This also determines the different uses and different pasting methods of the two. If the tiles are pasted by the method of tiles, it will cause the tiles to fall. If the tiles are pasted in the manner of tiles, it will not show a good decorative effect.

Three: Anti-slip

General ceramic tiles are used to pave the floor, so they must have a certain anti-slip function, and the higher the anti-slip effect, the higher the anti-slip effect, but the porcelain is the opposite. The pieces are for decoration, so the smoother the better.

Four: Classification

Porcelain belongs to porcelain, belongs to ceramics, and has the same material as vases or plates in the home, so it is classified as porcelain. However, ceramic tiles belong to the floor, belong to bricks, and are made by firing. The production process of the two is very different, the materials used are also different, and they belong to different categories.

Then the difference between the two is shared here. If you have anything to add, please contact the editor of Minmetals.
