Ceramic and Porcelain Tile

Both are part of the larger category of tiles that can generally be called ceramic. For moderrn tile specifications, it is more a case of reverse-naming, whereby manufacturers take tiles that have certain qualities and then assign the ceramic or porcelain titles to them. The chief difference is that porcelain tile is more impervious than ceramic tile and is thus subject to less water infiltration.

Ceramic tile is made up of sand, natural products, and clays and once it has been molded into shape they are then fired in a kiln. When making ceramic tiles they can either be glazed or unglazed, but the majority of homeowners have glazed ceramic tiles in their home..

Porcelain Tile is known for its density and long-term durability. Porcelain clays are denser and thus less porous than ceramic clays. Porcelain tile is more dense than ceramic tile, but due to its through-body composition, it is considered more durable and better suited for heavy usage than ceramic tile.
