The difference between the polished tile and rustic tile

What is the polished tile? Polished floor tiles is a bright tile made from the surface of the whole tile’s body. Hard and wear-resistant. It is suitable for use in most indoor spaces, toilets and kitchens. Due to the factors of aesthetics, the ceramic tile market has always been dominated by large and large size polished tiles. It is not only a luxurious atmosphere, magnificent, large space visual effect, to a certain extent, is also a representative of identity and image.

What is the rustic tile? The rustic wood tile is not the product developed by our country, it is imported from abroad. Stone flooring evolved from colored glazed tiles, essentially glazed porcelain tiles. The only difference is that in the process of firing, the technical requirements of rustic tiles are relatively high. After the press of thousands of tons of hydraulic press, it has been sintered at high temperature by 1000 degrees. It has high strength and very strong wear resistance. The carefully developed antique brick has the characteristics of waterproof, anti slip and corrosion resistance.

The difference between the ceramic polish and the rustic tile:

1.The hardness and water absorption of the polished stone tiles are high, and the surface hardness is as high as 7. Because the rustic tile has a glaze (vitreous body) on its surface, its hardness is only less than 6. The polished tiles are porcelain tile flooring with high vitrification, less than 0.5% water absorption and 38Mpa (1Mpa=1.02kg/cm2) flexural strength, and most of the rustic tiles are stoneware, the water absorption rate is high, and the strength of the brick is only about 28Mpa.

2.The color pattern of the paving tile is relatively simple. It looks more plain, neat, bright and other visual effects. The features of the rustic tiles appear to be visually diverse, which can form a variety of color patterns with an antique flavor. In addition, rustic tiles are used for paving with many kinds of accessories, so there are main tiles and accessories.

3.Antiskiding, antifouling polished tiles in the production of the concave and convex holes, these pores will hide dirt, resulting in the surface easily infiltrated into the pollutants, and even some tea poured on the polished porcelain are weak. The rustic tile is fired after the surface is glazed, so that the polished tiles are more imitated. From the skidding, the polished tiles can only be laid on most indoor spaces outside the bathroom and the kitchen, and the rustic tiles paving scope is more comprehensive, thus the anti skid ability is better. the surface of rustic tiles is matte, which is less polluting than light polished tiles, and is more environmentally friendly.

4. The price is different due to the manufacturing process and requirements of the two tiles. The price of polished tile is much cheaper than that of rustic tile.
5. The size of polished tiles is larger, the largest is 2400X1200, and the rustic tile is smaller, and the largest is 600X600. Moreover, the trend of rustic tile has been developing towards small specifications recently.
6. Because of the simple color of polished tiles, the placement process is easier. Also between polished tiles should be laid as far as possible without cutting. Because of the needs of surface decoration such as the pattern and pattern of rustic tiles, the technology of rustic tiles is rather complicated. There is also the design of the designer to carry out the actual construction. Moreover, the paving of the rustic tiles requires a certain gap, and it is not allowed to cut and paste at will.
