It is a low-density, coarser, granular and porous inorganic material with a different recipe compared to porcelain tiles obtained by heating and hardening ceramic clay soil. It is popularly known as terracotta. Due to the high amount of porosity (pore ratio) in the ceramic tiles, they absorb water into their body and therefore do not have frost resistance. The cooking temperature is between 1150-1250.Ceramic tile should only be used indoors. They are materials with low strength and no thermal shock resistance. They distinguish between wall and floor tiles according to the firing temperature and the glaze feature.
Product Area of Application
It can be used for covering all indoor floors. Since it has a high water absorption capacity, it is not suitable for outdoor use where temperature differences occur.
