  • Detail

The types of ceramic tiles can be divided into glazed tiles, full-length tiles, polished tiles, vitrified tiles and mosaics according to their production technology and characteristics. Of course, ceramic tiles with different characteristics have their own best uses. If you have enough knowledge of ceramic tiles, you can achieve targeted and make the best use of everything when decorating your room. Today, Xiaobian will tell you what kinds of decoration tiles are currently available, what are their respective performance advantages and disadvantages, and teach you how to choose tiles, hoping to help you decorate

classification of decoration tiles

I. polished bricks

this type of brick is made by pressing the powder of clay and stone, and then firing. The front and back sides have the same color and luster, without glaze. After burning, the surface is polished, so that the front side is very smooth and bright, and the back side is the true face of the brick

advantages: after polishing process, the original stone is polished bright and clean, more transparent, like a mirror. Using polished bricks can make the whole space look brighter

disadvantages: polishing turns smooth, so it won't skid. That is to say, once there is water on the ground, it will be very slippery. That's why you see that the stones laid on the stairs in the building are not polished, but matte. Only in this way can it skid. At the same time, poor polished brick liquid is easy to penetrate and difficult to wipe

II. Vitrified brick

vitrified brick is similar to polishing, but it requires higher production requirements, better press, higher density, and higher firing temperature, which can be achieved

advantages: corrugated brick is an enhanced polishing process. The surface is generally bright without polishing treatment, which can solve the problem that polished bricks are easy to get dirty to a certain extent

disadvantages: polished and vitrified bricks are beautiful because of their bright surface and high wear resistance, but they have the disadvantages of single color, easy to be dirty, non slip and easy to penetrate colored liquids. These two kinds of bricks are generally large, mainly used in living rooms, courtyards and other places, and rarely used in toilets, kitchens and other places with much water

III. glazed tiles

as the name suggests, the surface is fired with glaze and layered. The main body is divided into clay and porcelain clay. The back of pottery clay fired is red, which is called ceramic tile, and the back of porcelain clay fired is gray white, which is called ceramic tile. Generally, the effect of porcelain clay fired is good, so good bricks are called ceramic tiles instead of ceramic tiles. At present, about 80% of home decoration buyers choose this brick as floor decoration material

advantages: the surface of glazed tiles can be made into various patterns and patterns, which are richer in color and pattern than polishing. Because the surface is glaze, the wear resistance is not as good as polishing

disadvantages: thermal expansion and cold contraction are easy to crack. When the density of green body is too loose, the sewage of cement will penetrate the surface

IV. antique tiles

antique tiles are imported from abroad and are essentially glazed porcelain tiles. Antique tiles belong to ordinary tiles, which are basically the same as magnetic discs. The so-called antique tiles refer to the effect of tiles, which should be called antique tiles.

advantages: antique tiles are not difficult to clean. After being pressed by thousands of tons of hydraulic press, and then sintered by thousands of degrees of high temperature, it has high strength and strong wear resistance. The carefully developed antique brick has the characteristics of waterproof, anti-skid and corrosion resistance. Antique bricks imitate the past style and attract people's attention with a classical and unique charm. In order to reflect the vicissitudes of the years and the massiness of history, antique bricks create a nostalgic atmosphere through style, color and pattern

disadvantages: when choosing colors, don't choose those colors that are easy to go out of date. The antifouling ability is slightly worse than that of polished bricks

v. full body brick

full body brick is a kind of unglazed porcelain brick, and the material and color of the front and back are consistent, with good skid resistance and wear resistance. What we usually say “ Non slip brick ” Most of them are full-length bricks. The scope of application is widely used in halls, corridors, outdoor walkways and other floors, generally less used in walls

advantages: the style is simple, and the price is affordable. Its hard, wear-resistant and non slip characteristics are especially suitable for balconies, terraces and other areas. The hardness after surface polishing can be compared with that of stone, and the water absorption is low

disadvantages: full body brick is a kind of wear-resistant brick. Although there are still varieties such as porous full body brick, its design and color are relatively inferior to glazed tiles. Anti skid test is also required before purchase

VI. mosaic

mosaic is a brick with a special way of existence, which is generally composed of dozens of small bricks to form a relatively large brick. It is mainly divided into ceramic mosaic, marble mosaic and glass mosaic. Scope of application it is widely used in small indoor areas, walls and outdoor walls and floors because of its small size and colorful

advantages: acid resistance, alkali resistance, wear resistance, no water seepage, strong pressure resistance, not easy to break. The color is soft, simple, elegant, beautiful, chemical stability, good cold and heat stability, no discoloration, no dust accumulation, light volume weight, and firm bonding

disadvantages: mosaic has too many gaps, which is easy to get dirty and difficult to clean. Try to avoid using mosaic in the kitchen

selection of ceramic tiles

1. Knock

gently knock (or snap with your fingers) the suspended ceramic tiles with a thin stick. The crisp sound indicates that the ceramic tiles have no cracks, good sintering degree and high strength; If the sound is stuffy, it indicates that there may be double skin or cracks in the ceramic tile: double skin means that when the brick is formed, the air in the material is not discharged, resulting in poor combination and internal cracks between the materials, which cannot be seen from the surface, and can only be identified by listening to the sound

2. The ceramic tiles with good quality are heavier and more solid. This is mainly due to the selection and proportion of raw materials. The better the ceramic tiles, the greater the mechanical pressure during processing, so the weight is also heavier

3. Drip water

drop several drops of clear water on the back of the ceramic tile, and observe the absorption speed. The faster the absorption, the greater the water absorption. Generally speaking, products with low water absorption have good sintering degree, high strength, good frost resistance and good product quality

4. Scrape

scrape the glaze of the ceramic tile with a sharp object to see if there are scratches. If there are scratches, it means that the glazing is poor and people are easy to slip. After the glaze on the surface is polished, the dirty brick surface will not be cleaned

editor's summary: the above is the content introduction of the classification of decoration tiles and how to choose tiles. I hope it will be helpful to you. If you want to know more about ceramic tiles, please pay attention to the information
