Porcelain Tile / September 14, 2018 / Brousseau
To choose the right tiles that would best fit your needs it is important not to get lost with such terms as ceramic tiles non-porcelain or ceramic porcelain. All of these terms refer to a kind of ceramic ware however they differ in characteristics application and production method. Ceramic tiles are usually referred to as non-porcelain tiles and they are easier to cut and have higher water absorption as compared to porcelain. Unlike porcelain tiles ceramic tiles cannot absorb heavy impact or heavy foot traffic as they have a tendency to chip and abrade.
Drilling Large Diameter Holes (13mm or Larger). In order to cut holes that are 13mm or larger in diameter it is necessary to first drill a pilot hole. The pilot hole will act as a locater for a large diamond core and will help you to drill a perfect hole in porcelain tile. Attach an 8mm carbide drill bit or 8mm diamond bit to your drill. Follow the instructions given above for either Drilling Small Diameter Holes (10mm or Smaller) with Diamond Cores or Drilling Small Diameter Holes (10mm or Smaller) with Carbide Bits depending on whether you are using diamond cores or carbide drill bits. Leave out the final step in either case as you wont be drilling a fixing hole behind the tile.
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.
