Porcelain
Definition
Porcelain tiles are produced in a different way to the typical glazed ceramic floor tiles. Where ceramic tiles are fired, and then mostly coated in a glaze. With porcelain, in simple terms the glaze is mixed with the clay and then fired at a much higher temperature. The tile can then be polished and calibrated using methods almost identical to those used to produce polished marble or granite.

The resulting tile is much harder, stronger, and durable and has a lower porosity than ceramic tiles. The tile can be finished in a number of different surfaces, matt, silk and semi polished.

As the production process is more expensive the cost of porcelain is higher than ceramic tiles; however porcelain tiles have a level of durability greater than normal ceramic tiles, and can be produced in larger sizes. Polished porcelain offers unlimited applications in the commercial market, namely hotels, shopping areas, car showrooms and houses etc. However as technology moves forward so do the surface variations and finishes, and its use in the commercial market are rapidly increasing.

Product Range: at Spanish Tiles we offer a wide range of colors, sizes and finishes. It is impossible to show the wide choice that we offer therefore we have just included some lifestyle images to give an overall impression. www.abonir.com

Ceramic
Definition
Ceramic is by definition a product made from earth derived materials such as clays, silicates, or sand, usually requiring the application of high temperature in a kiln or oven at some stage of the process. A glaze is then added to create ceramic tiles with varying finishes.

Ceramic tiles themselves have an amazing ability to fire the senses. The mixture of clays, sands and chemical oxides are transformed into an array of different textures, colors and designs. Simultaneously rustic and sophisticated, our range covers the more modern to the more rustic.

Terracotta
Definition
Terracotta, from the Italian word for cooked earth, a naturally reddish-brown earthenware that is used for pottery, sculpture, and as tiles in the building industry. It is often glazed in various colors (see image of painted terracotta’s). At Spanish Tiles Direct we offer a range of Terracotta’s sourced from Spain. Local Spanish Clays are used to make the Terracotta which are then fired at 1000 ºC to give them their various and beautiful finishes.

Our range of terracotta products consist of the following groups: Mechanical, Semi Hand Made, Hand Made and Rustic.

Mechanical

This line of Terracotta includes smooth floor and wall tiles (show image of mechanical made terracotta) composed of a mixture of local clays giving the product the natural and traditional appearance of quality terra cotta.

Colors are either pale red or deep red. The shades may differ slightly for each tile. These are suitable for both floor and wall covering.



Semi Hand Made

This material is an extruded tile with an engraved surface, which looks in between mechanical and a hand made tile. (Show image of mechanical/and hand made terracotta). The appearance of this product is very rustic, but its dimensions are absolutely constant.

It is thus a material with a manual aspect that is easy to install and appropriate for interior as well as exterior use.



Hand Made –

Clay is hand pressed into a mould which is then roughly smoothed off and left to dry before firing. This material has been inspired by traditional terracotta tiles (show image of hand made terracotta). Which over the years have undergone changes in their surface and show irregularities due to wear. Colors: light with rosy flakes and red. Due to the natural color the shade may slightly differ for each tile.

Suitable for both floor and wall covering. These recovered tiles are especially appropriate for restorations and rustic surroundings.



Rustic

The line rustic tile is inspired on the old-traditional tiles which over the years have undergone changes in their surface and show irregularities due to wear. These are tumbles in order to enhance their rustic appearance.

These recovered tiles are especially appropriate for restorations and rustic surroundings.
