ceramic tile How Ceramic Tile Is Made In the beginning, ceramic tiles were made by hand. Wet clay was shaped, sometimes with a wooden mold, and then left to dry in the sun or fired in a small brick kiln. While a handful of artisans still craft ceramic tiles by hand, the majority of ceramic tiles now go through a process called -dry pressing- or -dust pressing.- This process requires far less labor and time, which is why ceramic tile is not just for Middle Eastern kings anymore!
Ceramic Tile Review
Ceramic tiles have been a popular material for interior and exterior decoration for thousands of years. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors and glazes and can be used plain, decorated or as part of a mosaic. Ceramic tiles are a popular choice of flooring due to their aesthetic appeal, as well as their durability and easy care. A properly installed ceramic tile floor will outperform and outlast nearly any other floor covering product created for the same application. Grade III and Grade IV glazed ceramic tiles are extremely scratch resistant. You never have to worry about a cut or tear like you do with other floor coverings.
