Porcelain

( 353 )

Porcelain is a type of ceramic tile. Its main characteristics are being stronger, harder, purer, and more water-resistant than ordinary ceramics – which are already quite durable. Due to its through-body composition, porcelain tile is considered more durable and better suited for heavy usage than ceramic tile. Suitable for both walls and floors, porcelain tiles are available in a wide variety of designs, styles, sizes, and shapes and are easy to maintain. Thanks to advanced high-tech machines and ink-jet printers, recently porcelain can be manufactured in large sizes, and its surface is simulated very closely to the natural stone pattern. Porcelain, which was used only for wall and floor coverings in the past, is now used in kitchen and bathroom countertops, and even in stair coverings.

Is porcelain floor tile slippery?

Ceramic and porcelain tile floors can be notoriously slippery. The very feature that makes tile easy to clean—its smooth, non-porous nature—also means that it is slippery underfoot. For this reason, porcelain tiles with the right surface should be selected for outdoor and floor coverings and surfaces should be coated with chemicals to prevent slipping.
