What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles?
Ceramic tiles have been around for over 2000 years. They typically have a white or red clay "biscuit" with some form of glaze on top. Porcelain stoneware tiles are made from an extremely finely-powdered "clay" tablet that is dry-pressed under enormous pressure and heat - several hundred degrees hotter than ceramics. Porcelain tiles are much harder and more dense than ceramic tiles. This allows porcelain tiles to be made in very large formats that would be impossible to achieve in a ceramic tile. Porcelain tiles will also often have a coloured "biscuit" that matches the surface glaze, or have a colour and pattern that extends all the way through the tile. This avoids the common problem with ceramics where the glaze gets chipped and exposes the ugly clay biscuit underneath.
Marble is a metamorphic rock found in the mountainous regions of many countries of the world. Marble quarried in India, China, Italy, Turkey and Spain represents the majority of marble, in terms of volume, that is utilized worldwide. Because of its beauty and elegance, marble is a popular choice for countertops, floors, foyers, fireplace facings, fire hearths, walls, and windowsills. Many marbles are well suited for wet area application, which extends the versatility of this material to include baths and showers.
Granite is an igneous rock that is the result of hundreds of millions of years of creation. Nature has given us this exceptional product with its multitude of colours and we are forever learning how to use and enjoy it. It is among the hardest of natural stones and is used for many applications including structural works due to its high compressive strength and durability.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock that has been formed over millions of years at the bottom of lakes and seas. Often limestone can be found with fossils (e.g. Jura limestone which clearly shows the sedimentary nature of the material.) Limestones vary in hardness (density) depending on their age and formation.
Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized minerals or rock grains. Most sandstone is composed of quartz and/or feldspar because these are the most common minerals in the Earth’s crust. Like sand, sandstone may be any colour, but the most common colours are tan, brown, yellow, red, gray, pink, white and black.
Travertine is a banded, compact variety of limestone commonly formed along streams, where there are waterfalls or around hot or cold springs. The holes in travertine were created by carbon dioxide bubbles that were trapped when the stone formed. This gives it an open texture that can be filled or left in its natural state.
