Porcelain Tile / August 25, 2018 / Brousseau
You can never go wrong when you choose ceramic porcelain tiles for your home finishing. They are not only durable and practical porcelain tiles can transform an otherwise ordinary home into a lovely abode. Fabric cross-stitch patterns work very well in the home or office decors! The light and the shadow beside the 3D patterns are breathtaking. Otherwise, fabric often faces problems like dirt and may be difficult to maintain clean.
Application of tiles are rated according to the Porcelain Enamel Institute (PEI) rating system from PEI Class 1 up to PEI Class 5. If you are looking for the right tiles to be used for your walls or ceiling the PEI Class 1 is recommended because the tiles are not exposed to any impact. You can choose the PEI Classes 2 and 3 for your bathroom tiles and the PEI Classes 3 to 5 as kitchen and tabletops and as flooring in any part of your home or building according to the impact foot traffic or exposure of the area where you will install your porcelain tiles.
Drilling Small Diameter Holes (10mm or Smaller) with Carbide Bits. Firstly mark where the hole will be drilled on the tile using a marker. Attach a carbide drill bit to your drill. Ensure that there is a constant supply of cold water that is being directly aimed at the selected drill bit i.e. by using water cooling equipment. Note regarding water cooling. It is important to ensure that there is a constant supply of cold water in order to keep the drill bit cool and to help remove any debris that may have built up whilst drilling the tile.
