How to protect the tiles
To use for longer time, please protect your tiles according to the
If the tiles are paved but you don’t use it formally, to avoid any
surface damage, please use something to cover your tiles, like
thicker papers, woven bags and so on.
If operate air compressor on the tiles, please use some boards as
under layers. It's forbidden to touch tile surface with air
compressor wheels directly.
It’s better to use dry mop to clean the tiles. If necessary, you
can use neutral cleanser like detergent or liquid detergent to deal
with the stain.
To avoid mould on the gap between two tiles, please use
decontamination cream to clean the stain, and then brush some
If there are some scratches on tile surface, please put some tooth
paste on it and use a cloth to wipe repeatedly.
According to the using situation, please use floor wax to take care
of tile surface at fixed period. If economic condition allows,
please adopt crying surface treatment, so as to achieve the effects
of high-grade hotels.
The characteristic of porcelain tiles
Porcelain tiles can be divided into two catalogues as polished and
non-polished. The polished ceramics can be magnificent while the
non-polished ones will be more elegant; both of them have been
applied to the decoration of modern architectures. Porcelain tiles
have almost the same color and texture from the surface to inside,
and they have 100 percent porcelain, high density, solid,
non-deform and non-discolor. The hardness has achieved Mohs 6, and
they are abrasion resistance and the color can be stayed fresh. The
water absorption index of porcelain tiles is less than 0.5%, and
has excellent performance on aitifreeze, extreme cold and extreme
hot, resistance to cracking, adaptation to different climate. The
fracture resistance performance is as high as 38Mpa, and stable
with physical and chemical performance, normally acid-proof and
Comparing with granite, porcelains has overcame the defect and ease
the difficulty on machining. They are thinner and lighter than
granite tiles, and easier to be bonded with less expensive prices.
Against to marbles, porcelain has overcame the drawbacks of
cracking and rock-weathering. It has longer life cycle than marbles
and radiationly-safe, however the marbles exists severe radiation
Differentiated to the glazed tiles, porcelain will be higher class
and better effect on decoration, for which the glaze may be
cracked, faded, or swelled.
Categorizing porcelain tiles
Porcelain tiles can be categorized as a few kinds according to the
appearance, application and characteristics; for example, glazed
and unglazed, polished and non-polished, bleed ceramics, large
particles, wall ceramics, outdoor ground ceramics and non-slip
Using toothpaste to erase marks and nicks on ceramics
With times of laboratory exercises, some light marks can be erased
by white toothpaste, some stubborn stains and light nicks can also
be lightened by repeatedly wiping. (Notice: better to use Crest's
Abrasion resistance of ceramics
The level of abrasion resistance is measured by the volume of
ceramic powder which is rubbed base on certain force, material and
times. The larger volume, the worse level of abrasion resistance.
The gloss of ceramics
The gloss of ceramic refers to the intensity of light reflection.
With higher gloss, the stronger reflection, which the surface will
looks like a mirror.
It means the performance of ceramics to resist chemical erosion,
for example, acid, alkali and salt. A ceramic which has high
performance of anti chemical corrosion should remain the same even
being tested within the acid or alkali environment for a long
period. With a high level of anti-erosion performance, the ceramic
can well be maintained in normal environment.
Water absorption level
Water absorption of ceramics is just similar to a dried cloth will
absorb water, ceramics will also absorb water. The less water the
ceramics absorb, the higher performance they will be, for example,
compression, anticracking, stain removable.
The higher level of antifouling properties, the easier to remove
stains. The measurement of antifouling properties is basically
using and spreading some common pollutants on the surface of
ceramics and then standing for a certain period. Finally, the
ceramic will be rinsed by different kinds of detergent to measure
the effect of antifouling. Notably, there may not be any ceramics
that will not be polluted, once there is stain on the tile, you can
use certain common kinds of detergents to clean, for example,
bleach, detergent, acetone, hydrochloric acid solution, potassium
It refers to the flatness of the ceramic surface, the flatter it
does, the better result will be when on construction. As long as
the level of flatness has reached a certain standard, a correct
constructing method will ensure that there will not be any bending
