Porcelain tiles are tough and dense. Porcelain tiles are manufactured by dust pressing in dyes at very high pressures and then cooking the tiles in a kiln at over 1200 degrees centigrade. Glazed porcelain was developed in Italy and its wearing qualities make it ideal for Australia's harsh climates. The process involves covering a porcelain tile with a ceramic coating, making the product the most hard wearing tile on the market. It combines the strength of porcelain with the hassle free maintenance of a ceramic tile. We stock a large variety of glazed porcelain, with finishes ranging from a high gloss to a rustic matte and an outdoor non-slip. Ceramic tiles have been around for centuries and with the modern technology available to manufacturers they have produced a range of new design and application possibilities that were not available a decade ago. You will be amazed at the wide selection of colours, sizes, shapes and new textures that are available in ceramic tiles.
