Semi Polished Porcelain Floor Tiles From Sitco - India

price: contact company for price

Porcelain tiles are ceramic tiles commonly used to cover floors and

walls, with a water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent. They can

either be glazed or unglazed. Although porcelain has been used for

making tiles for many years, only modern production methods and

quantities has made the porcelain tile available for the average

householder in recent years.

The dense, hard surface of porcelain has made polishing a viable alternative to a glazed surface. This means that a tile can be fired, then a polish cut into the surface, creating a shine without a glaze. Porcelain is much harder than ordinary ceramic tiles and is usually selected, despite its higher price etc. porcelain can be used in dry areas such as wall murals, dadoes and less traffic zones.

Disadvantages of Porcelain:

Porcelain is denser and therefore heavier to handle than other ceramic tiles. For this reason, it is generally more expensive. Being harder, it is more difficult to cut and drill, which can hamper fitting and increase costs. Polished porcelain may need sealing, where ordinary glazed tiles do not. the glazed surface is coated with less than two microns. porcelain attracts stubborn stains and becomes brittle when contact with chlorinated water and acids.


Specialised cements are necessary for installation of porcelain tiles, and in the US specifications, are set by the Tile Council of America[ 1] and supported by the Tile Contractors Association. Porcelain, being denser and heavier than ordinary ceramic tiles, needs a stronger adhesive to hold the weight on walls. Therefore typical ready- mix adhesives are not recommended for porcelain.


When porcelain is first made, it is not absorbent, but the polishing process for making the unglazed surface shiny cuts into the surface, leaving it more porous and prone to absorbing stains, in the same way as natural stone tiles. Unless they have a suitable, long- lasting treatment applied by the manufacturer ( for example, nanotech treatment) , polished porcelain tiles will need sealing. Porcelain sealants are either solvent- based or water- based, which is cheaper, but does not last.
