Ceramic surfaces have a relatively longer life if compared to most of the other materials used for floor and wall covering.
Ceramic tiles are fireproof. They do not burn, nor give off smoke or toxic fumes.
Moisture Resistance They are an excellent choice for use in wet areas, if properly installed and grouted. Some of the types (porcelain) are also impervious, i.e. they have a less than 0.5% moisture absorption rate.
Resistance to abrasion and tread wear
They are easily used as floor tiles at busy commercial locations and residential sites. Ceramic tiles can withstand heavy foot traffic due to their resistance to abrasion and tread wear.
Ceramic tiles are treated to prevent slipping either by adding an abrasive grit to the glaze or texture to the surface such as ribs, studs or orange peel finish. This anti-slip factor is also particularly defined and rated in tile flooring.
Vitreous ceramic tiles and all of the porcelain tile types are frost resistant. These tiles come up to the need of frost resistant exterior applications.
Thermal shock resistance
A properly laid ceramic tile floor will neither deform nor break in extreme temperature conditions.
Stain resistance and easy maintenance
To keep a ceramic tile surface clean, all you need to do is sweep, vacuum and wash them regularly with water.
Ceramic tile materials are highly resistant to chemical agents.
Direct exposure of ceramic tiles to sunlight neither alters their color, nor causes them to fade.
Being hygienic and easy to clean, ceramic tiles are recommended for all areas where high sanitary standards are a must.
