There are many types of materials for ceramic tiles. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, and different materials are suitable for different scenarios. When choosing tiles, we need to know in advance the characteristics of tiles made from different materials.1. Polished tiles
Polished brick is a kind of bright brick made from the surface of the whole brick body after two-layer firing at high temperature and then polished. It is a porcelain brick with a water absorption rate less than or equal to 0.5%. Compared to the rough surface of solid bricks, polished bricks are much smoother. This type of brick has high hardness and is very wear resistant. Based on the use of bleeding technology, polished tiles can be given various effects similar to stone and wood. The classification can be divided into seepage type polished tiles, micropowder type polished tiles, multi-tube fabric polished tiles and microcrystalline stones. The scope can be used in most indoor areas, except for bathrooms and kitchens.2. full frosting
Full polished glaze is the product of a traditional matte antique tile that has been glazed on the surface and then polished. It is richer in design and color than polished tiles. After the tiles are fired at high temperature, the pattern coloring texture is dialysis color, not the rough patterns on the surface of ordinary tiles, but special products that can be seen and cannot be touched. . , this product is currently the most accepted product on the market. Polished tile has slowly fallen into disrepair since it was introduced, but I recommend it to our neighbors. I still suggest that everyone choose polished tile, which is economical and durable. than ten years old, I think I feel uncomfortable, but I can still do some cleaning and polishing and it will be like new again.3. microcrystalline stone
Microcrystalline stone is just an improved version based on full glaze. This is a layer of microcrystalline glass with a thickness of 3-5 mm, deposited on the surface of a ceramic vitrified stone. In recent years, super microcrystalline jade has been launched. Previous Layer 3 -5mm glass ceramic has been forcibly doubled, and the hardness has been increased by 1.5 times. It is more scratch resistant and not afraid of scratches. It is a high-tech product, fully integrated after secondary sintering. in elite residences or hotel clubs. The advantages are higher hardness than stone, good environmental performance and easy maintenance. It is a high quality product in the ceramic industry.4. inkjet 3D block
In terms of color, traditional technology can display onlyOnly 4 to 6 colors, while 3D inkjet printing technology can display dozens of colors on the same tile without any limitation. At the same time, the patterns obtained with this technology are very clear and can reproduce more than 95% of the colors and scenes in nature, which is equivalent to taking a photograph and immediate restoration.5. solid brick
The surface of the entire body of the brick is unglazed, and the material and color of the front and back are the same, hence the name. Solid hull brick is more wear resistant, but its color is not as good as that of glazed brick. The classification is divided into non-slip bricks, polished bricks and seeping bricks. The scope of application is widely used in halls, aisles and outdoor passages, and is generally less commonly used on walls.6. Glazed tiles
This is a brick with a glazed surface. Generally speaking, glazed tiles are richer in color and pattern than polished tiles, and at the same time play the role of anti-fouling. But since the surface of the glazed tile is glazed, its wear resistance is not as good as that of the polished tile. The classification is divided into ceramic glazed tiles and porcelain glazed tiles according to raw materials. According to the different luster, it is divided into matte and bright light. Scope of application In the kitchen, you should choose a bright glazed tile, not a matte glaze, as oil stains penetrate the surface of the brick and are difficult to clean. Glazed tiles are also suitable for bathrooms, balconies, etc.7. mosaic
Mosaic is a brick with a special way of being. It usually consists of dozens of small bricks forming a relatively large brick. Acid-resistant, alkali-resistant, wear-resistant, impervious, high pressure resistance, not easy to break. Classification It is mainly divided into ceramic mosaic, marble mosaic and glass mosaic. Application Scope It is widely used in small rooms, walls and outdoor walls and floors because of its small size and bright colors.8. Choice of tiles for kitchen and bathroom
1. Smooth or matte glazed tiles are the best choice for large spaces, they are very easy to clean and can also create a “trendy” effect. Nowadays, many brands offer consumers a choice of matt glazed tiles in rich colors. Generally, ladies like more transparent colors, there are light porcelain vases or fruit series for reference, while men will prefer sophisticated fashion sense, with strong Italian style, matte pastoral, marble effect style.
2. The floor tile material is best chosen with a matte surface. The anti-slip effect of a matte tile is much better than that of a bright one. Therefore, the choice of anti-slip floor tiles is a top priority.
3.Everyone's favorite color is different.You'd better match the color of the cabinet or kitchen door.Can't recommend.Kitchen can be white with dark colors for cleanliness,or rustic plaid Brick,bathroom The choice is more extensive, such as antique brick processing, shaping and slotting, etc., polished brick can also be cut and stacked, and the quality has been greatly improved. Ordinary glazede bricks can also be selected and matched to the design and color.
4. Briefly about matte tiles in the bathroom, to keep people warm and not dazzling, in the kitchen, choose smooth and even tiles that are easy to clean and keep clean. they say there are inconsistencies. Quality tiles are not easy to care for. True, they are relatively easy to care for without a planer, but quality must also be paid attention to. If there are many bubbles, pinholes, and pits on the surface of the tile, the gloss will be low, and dirt will easily seep and hang.
I believe that after the large-scale popularization of science described above, the owners have a general idea of the main types of tiles, so when buying a tile, owners only need to choose the appropriate tile according to their needs.
