Floor tile

Contemporary modern building materials allow the use of ceramic tiles not only on the floor but also on the walls and even ceilings. All types of ceramic products, including ceramic floor and wall tiles are a mixture of clay, sand and other natural materials. After suitable treatment are formed by pressing or pulling, and then burnt at high temperatures from 1000 ° C to 1250 ° C (depending on types). In technical terminology to distinguish tiles and floor tiles. For both groups, the term used ceramic tile element, the parameters predetermine their use for tiled surfaces. All ceramic materials are hard, abrasion resistant, hygienic, easy to clean and non-flammable. They are fixed (do not bend and deform), but fragile. It is the finishing construction material, which must meet the technical function (i.e. Ensure the progress of certain activities in the area to resist external influences, without breaking ) and aesthetic (to be in harmony with the environment and the user's expectations).

Glossy tiles has a surface covered with a layer of colored glass (glaze), which gives them important aesthetic features (color, gloss, shade, decor, etc..) And technological properties (hardness, etc..). Burning may be one (shard together with glaze), twice (glazed shard already burned), if necessary three times (during the application of special decorations on already burnt glaze). Tile surface can be glossy, semi-gloss, semi matt or matte.


Matt tiles are uniform throughout the thickness. They can be ground or polished. Floor Tiles can be porous (absorbent) or compact (non-absorbent) surface (shard). Compact, non-absorbent shard in its properties to porcelain, especially in the so-called stoneware tiles. The porous body is characterized by the presence of pores that are connected to each other in different ways. When the substrate is more porous, higher the water absorption, which is an important characteristic of each type of stoneware tiles.


Floor Tiles can be pressed or drawn. Pressed tiles formed from fine granules, which are shaped in a press under high pressure. Drawn pavement is made from the raw material in the form of dough, which lends to shape pressing through the appropriate special-shaped mouth of the press.Floor Tiles have different shapes and sizes (i.e. Formats). Most often it is a square or rectangle, there are also hexagons or octagon. Floor Tiles with an area less than 90 mm2 is referred as a mosaic. The most standard manufactured ceramic tiles have a side length of 60 cm, there are also special products from 90 to 120 cm. The pavement offers a range of additional features such as stair fittings, skirting boards and various decorative listello. Tiles are complemented by a variety of shapes and types of borders and strips.


Recently, is often combining ceramic tiles with natural materials and both with individual decorative elements (listello, botone), as well as in combination ceramic /natural stone. Here is directly intended that the natural material differed from ceramics, and also may involve some minor characteristics that are not found in ceramic tiles (fissure, not straight margins, strong color difference, different veining of marble from the sample). Furthermore, there is another mechanical and chemical resistance. For example, limestone is very soft and totally non-resistant against weak acids. Therefore, the location of these elements must be carefully thought, not to be installed in extremely exposed zones.
