Calacatta Porcelain Tile Dozza Gold’s Water Absorption and PEI
Porcelain is a product of ceramic with stronger mass. Its density is measured with its water absorption levels. A” dry pressed ceramic tile with water absorption ≤0.5″ label is the indicator of porcelain tiles. ASTM C1027 is often misused as PEI and most people are under the impression that PEI indicates the tile’s quality. Indeed, ASTM C1027 measures the visual abrasion of the glaze.
ASTM C1027.19 (2019 edition) recommends the following classes
- Class5: Heavy Commercial: suitable for intense commercial and all residential.
- Class4: Commercial: suitable for medium commercial and all residential.
- Class3: Heavy Residential, Light Commercial; suitable for all residential, average abrasion.
However, for commercial floors unglazed through-body or double-charged tiles are more suitable.
Calacatta porcelain tile Dozza Gold is a Class 4 tile. It comes with water absorption ≤ 0.1% It’s on the higher end of porcelain tiles.
