Porcelain Tile / September 14, 2018 / Brousseau
The Kaska glazed porcelain offers a Tiger Cotto and Noce series. These tiles are comparatively priced and offer a full colour body porcelain tile. These tiles are made in Turkey and have standard edges and a PEI 4 rating. These tiles are ideal for floors or walls in any home with any amount of traffic. The glaze on the tiles helps to protect and lengthen the life of the tiles so they can be used in the kitchen near the doors or even on the walls to beautify your home.
Porcelain tiles may be classified into natural glazed and polished tiles. The natural porcelain tile normally does not undergo any further finish after it is exposed to high temperature. This type of tile may be referred to as unglazed or through body tile where the colour goes all the way through. The glazed tile is coated with liquid glass that allows the manufacturer to put in a variety of designs and play around with colours. It comes out glossy and is one of the easiest to maintain. They are highly recommended as walls or accents in bathrooms and kitchen.
Unglazed tiles do not have a coated surface and full body porcelain tiles dont show wear anyhow due to the colour and design being throughout the entire tile. These types of tiles have a PEI rating of 0-5 meaning they can be used in any area. PEI classes are 0 through 5. The porcelain enamel institute scale is one that is used to help detect areas that tiles should be used in. The glazed tiles that have the overall 0 to 5 rating can be used anywhere from no foot traffic to industrial traffic making them ideal for use in your home.
