Porcelain tile is a compact ceramic material with high density (2380-2450 kg/m3), low water absorption (< 0.5%) and small pore size (<50 µm) and low porosity (pore ratio in the structure). Porcelain tiles are widely used in the construction industry, interior and exterior floor coverings, thanks to their excellent technical properties such as high breaking strength, high frost resistance, high abrasion resistance and high chemical resistance. The optimum firing temperature of porcelain tiles is between 1200-1250 C.

Product Area of Application

Porcelain tiles are used in terraces, gardens and public areas that are exposed to all external weather conditions with temperature difference due to their low water absorption coefficient. They should also be preferred for shopping malls and airports with heavy traffic conditions. All wet areas and general areas of use are suitable for porcelain tile flooring due to easy surface cleaning.
