How to classify tiles?
In different occasions, the types of tiles selected are also different. On the contrary, when choosing tiles, you must combine the actual use occasions. Here we have sorted out the classification of ceramic tiles and the applicable scope of different ceramic tiles.
Classification of ceramic tiles:
1. Vitrified tiles:
The density of this kind of bricks is very large. In a practical sense, it is full ceramic tiles. Vitrified tiles can be regarded as enhanced versions of polished tiles, so they are more wear-resistant than polished tiles. A major feature of vitrified tiles is that their water absorption is very low, which has become one of the means to identify the quality of vitrified tiles. Generally, the lower the water absorption, the better the quality of vitrified tiles. Vitrified tiles are very resistant to stains, which is not available in polished tiles. However, vitrified tiles also have their shortcomings. Due to the high density, the vitrified tiles are very bulky in the same volume of tiles, which has certain difficulties in the process of transportation and installation.
2. Polished tiles:
This is a kind of brighter tiles made by carefully polishing the surface of the bricks. It belongs to the category of full-body bricks, but the surface is much cleaner than ordinary full-body bricks. This is also the reason why it can break away from the whole body brick and become an independent type. The polished tile has a bright surface, so it has a strong decorative effect, so it is also widely used in unexpected places in the kitchen and bathroom. The polished tiles have a smooth surface, so they are not suitable for use in places where there is a lot of contact with water like bathrooms. Polished tiles are easy to get dirty, which is a fatal weakness. Polished tiles will leave some pores when they are polished. These pores are particularly easy to contain dirt.
3. Antique tiles:
Antique tiles originated in Europe, but there are no antique tiles. There are too many unique places, mainly because its color and style are slightly archaic. Of course, it does not rule out the well-designed antique bricks. Antique bricks need old methods, so high technology and equipment are required when making them, otherwise the bricks will be easily damaged during the old steps. The main decorative effect of the antique brick comes from its shape, pattern and color, etc., creating a retro atmosphere.
4. Glazed tiles:
The surface of glazed tiles is an enamel layer, which is not fired at high temperature, so it is not as good as polished tiles in terms of wear resistance. And vitrified bricks too. But its advantage is that the decorative effect of glazed tiles is very good, and its surface can be made of various patterns and patterns. The application range of glazed tiles is very wide. It can not only be used for floor decoration, but also can be used to decorate walls. This is also a major feature of glazed tiles.
5. Whole body brick:
This kind of brick has no surface enamel layer, so its anti-slip effect is very good, and it is widely used in toilets, aisles and other places that need anti-slip. Because there is no enamel layer on the surface of the whole body brick, the decorative effect is insufficient, but it is biased towards practicality, and the color is biased towards plain, so it is also widely used in modern decoration.
There are many types of ceramic tiles. In addition to choosing quality, consumers also need to combine the actual use location and decoration style, otherwise it is easy to install polished tiles with poor anti-slip effects in the bathroom. It is also necessary for consumers to properly grasp the classification of some ceramic tiles and their respective scope of application
