The difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles

Updated: Feb 16

The main difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles is in the technology used in their production. The production process of porcelain tiles is more controlled than ordinary tiles. Porcelain tiles have different minerals that burn at temperatures exceeding 1200 degrees Celsius. Porcelain tiles are uniform, dense and have higher fracture strength and flexural strength than ordinary ceramics. They have fewer pores than ordinary ceramics. This reason has a water absorption index of less than half a percent and these factors have made the durability of this type of tiles (porcelain) more. This feature makes porcelain tiles suitable for busy places such as airports and shopping malls. Porcelain tiles are also famous for their greater variety of colors and have a more beautiful appearance.
