Expert Advice: Ceramic VS Porcelain Tile

Question: What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile?

Answer: While ceramic and porcelain tiles are both made from clay and other natural materials, the process to produce porcelain tiles creates a more refined and purified product that is much stronger and more resilient. While traditional ceramic tiles are meant only for wall applications, porcelain tiles are strong enough to be used on floor applications as well! Porcelain tiles also offer greater flexibility in design which means today, you can find porcelain tiles that mimic natural stone, hardwood and more. These porcelain tiles from Energie Ker are a great example! Thanks to the latest and most advanced digital technology, these Italian made porcelain tiles come in a large range of sizes and finishes and many of them contain 40% recycled material as well! – Baneet Singh, Touchtone Canada, www.touchtonecanada.com
