Porcelain and Stone Tiles
Porcelain tiles are generally made by the dust pressed method from porcelain clays which has a result of a denser, fine grained, smooth and sharply form faced stone tile. Porcelain tiles usually have a lower water absorption rate over non-porcelain/ceramic tiles, making them frost resistant or sometimes frost-proof.
Glazed porcelain tiles are also more resistant to heavy wear and more damage resistant, making them suitable for any application from light to heavy foot traffic in both residential and commercial applications. Porcelain tiles through Rembrandt Flooring are available in matte, unglazed or a high polished finish.
