Suitable for wall and floor tiling in a variety of finishes and sizes. These traditional value for money tiles are available with “rota-screened” effects and the newer High Definition ink jet printing that is the cutting edge in the current ceramic market.
For all applications, inherently more robust than their ceramic cousins and suitable for use both inside and out. Available glazed, unglazed, natural or polished, and stocked in sizes from 100x100mm to 900x450mm with larger sizes available to order!
As with the rota-screen technology, another manufacturing feature to look out for is 'multi-pressings'. All tiles are individually pressed at great pressures to create the 'biscuit' body, which is later glazed and fired. Again, the better quality ranges are pressed in a variety of moulds which, when glazed with 'rota screen' glazes, feature tiles one would be hard pressed to tell from nature.
Another feature of porcelain-bodied tiles is that they can be re-machined to polish the structure of the surface, producing an extremely hard-wearing and shiny surface, often seen used in prestigious commercial installations, shopping malls and airports.
More and more tiles are produced in the new generation porcelain production plants, resulting in a bewildering variety of products available on the market. We carefully select our products to reflect our ethos of quality, price and design, to make your shopping experience easier.
