Is an Italian word meaning “double fired”, a similar procedure that breaks the firing process in two phases. The clay body is baked in the first step, and the glaze is applied in the second. In reality, Bicottura tiles may go through the kiln as many as four times. The Bicottura method is considered the best method when decorative wall tiles with multiple colours are required.Â Bicottura tiles are used mostly for indoor locations, as wall tiles and backsplashes because of their softer body.
Is an Italian word meaning “single-fired”. It is the newest method used to produce ceramic tiles. In this process, individual tiles are shaped, glazed and fired in one step, at the same time. The development of this technology has revolutionized the tile industry, improving the quality of the finished product.
Full Bodied Porcelain
Porcelain tiles are a tile’s that are generally made by the dust pressed method from porcelain clays which result in a tile that is dense, impervious, fine grained and smooth, with a sharply formed face. Porcelain tiles usually have a much lower water absorption rate (less than 0.5%) than non-porcelain tiles.
Glazed porcelain tiles are much harder and more wear and damage resistant than non-porcelain ceramic tiles, making them suitable for any application from light traffic to the heaviest residential and light commercial traffic.
Natural Stone e.g. Marble & Granite
There are a number of different natural stone tiles available including marble, granite, travertine and limestone.Â They have different levels of porosity and hardness.Â As this is a natural occurring product made by the earth, no two tiles will look exactly the same.Â All of these products must be sealed.
These are machine cut tiles where the top and the edge of the tile form a 90 degree angle, giving a cleaner finish and less variation between individual tiles.
There are specific guidelines as to the use of tiles in outdoor areas. Pool tiles and external tiles are required to have a slip resistance surface to comply with Australian Standards. We recommend that you refer to the Australian Standards Guide to slip resistance before choosing your external tiles.
These tiles are high quality decorative products to compliment the broad range of ceramic tiles already available. This includes things like glass mosaics, listellos, natural stone borders, fascia tiles, fozzettos and insertos.
