These tiles are frequently characterized to as ceramic tiles by themselves, separate from porcelain tiles – confusing! Ceramic tiles are generally made from red or white clay fired in a kiln. They are almost always finished with a durable glaze, which carries the colors and patterns. These tiles are made in both walls and floors applications. Non-porcelain ceramic tiles are usually suitable for very light to moderate high traffic and generally have a relatively high water absorption rates making them mostly frost resistant and they are more prone to stains and chipping than porcelain tiles. Porcelain tile is more scratch resistant than ceramic tile. Also, porcelain tile is fired at higher temperatures than ceramic, resulting in superior durability and stain resistance.
Unglazed tileis generally made by the dust pressed method from porcelain clays which result in a tile that is dense, impervious, fine grained and smooth, with a sharply formed face. Porcelain tiles usually have a much lower water absorption rate (less than 0.5%) than non-porcelain ceramic tiles making them frost resistant. TLC Carpet Care's Porcelain Tile Floor Cleaning requires that it carry the color and pattern through the entire thickness of the tile making them virtually impervious to wear and are suitable for any application from residential to the highest traffic commercial or industrial applications.

Sealing Ceramic and Porcelain Tile & Grout
TLC Carpet Care Glazed tiles are made with a liquid glass, which is then baked into the surface of the tile. The glaze provides an varring array of colors and designs as well as protects the tile from staining. A glazed tile is made stain proof, so there is no purpose to putting on a sealer on the tile. However, the grout joint between the tiles is usually extremely porous and generally made of a cement material. Therefore, grout joints typically will need to be cleaned, sealed and maintained properly to prevent stains and oxidation. Impregnating sealers such as grout sealer go into the grout joint and protect against water and oil-based stains. Most industry professionals recognize that grout is best protected with a fl chemical -based sealer, such as Impregnator pro or all purpose grout sealer If the grout joint is epoxy, a sealer is not necessary.
