Interceramic HD Ceramic Tile - The Quality Without the Porcelain Price

Posted: Tuesday, October 01, 2013

Interceramic High Density Tile

Interceramic's high-density ceramic tile is all the rage in flooring these days. That's because of its low porosity (2.5% absorption rate for glazed HD ceramic tile) and its durability (breaking strength of more than 450 psi). These are pretty phenomenal numbers when you consider that most people equate porcelain tile as the king, and ceramic tile as some distant second.

Interceramic High Density TileBut in reality, when looking at the numbers, you'll realize that's not entirely true. Here's a fact: all porcelain tiles are ceramic tiles (although not all ceramic tiles are porcelain  confused?). Tiles achieve this status of porcelain tiles because of their water absorption rate, which comes in at less than 0.5%. The components of porcelain tiles (fine clays, quartz, and feldspar), which are then fired at a higher temperature, result in the water resistant final product that is also typically denser than its ceramic cousin.

The result of this high absorption rate and density is a tile that can handle pretty hefty commercial or residential traffic, and can be used indoors or out. Most standard ceramic tiles are not recommended for outdoor use because of their high water absorption rate.

Taking the Tile World by Storm
