Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic made of a very fine mixture of clays and minerals similar to those found in fine dinnerware. These special clays allow porcelain tile to be fired at temperatures even higher than ceramic tile, typically exceeding 2,400 degrees (F). The higher temperature results in a very dense tile. And the denser a tile, the better it resists moisture.
Like ceramic tile, porcelain tile from Shaw Tile & Stone collections are resistant to stains, odors, bacteria, and scratches. It is also…
- denser and harder than most other tile
- highly stain and water resistant
- naturally hygienic with easy to clean surfaces that can be smooth, textured, or polished
beautiful and durable, both in the home or in commercial applications
