Ceramic Tile Flooring
Ceramic Wall and Accent Tiles
Ceramic tile is a rather general term that refers to tiles made from a mixture of clay and other
materials and then fired in a kiln. From there, tiles are basically characterized as
porcelain or non-porcelain. Ceramic flooring tile refers to rock hard tile, whose "bisque",
or the body of the tile, is fired once. This process of single firing is referred to as "monocottura".
In ceramic tiles, the printing technology has improved dramatically in recent years - this allows
manufacturers to create a product which looks like natural stone at a fraction of the cost.
