Large Format Porcelain Tile Kalahari Grey’s Water Absorption & PEI
Ceramic is a porcelain tile with water absorption lower than 0.5%. Therefore water absorption is the single value that indicates the hardness of a tile. Large Format Porcelain Tile Kalahari Grey’s water absorption is below 0.5%. It’s a very hard and strong porcelain tile.
Most porcelain tiles are glazed. What some calls PEI(the correct term is Tile Class) is the visual abrasion of the glaze on a scale from 1 to 5. Therefore, a such test won’t measure the durability of the tile. Porcelain tiles are very durable products that will last for a long time with the right installation. Almost all porcelain tiles are made within Tile Class 3 and 4 range for light commercial and residential traffic. On the other hand, A PEI-III porcelain tile will outlast a PEI-V ceramic tile. Large Format Porcelain Tile Kalahari Grey is a Class 4 tile.
Setting Materials Matter.
When it comes to choosing the setting materials, unfortunately, most people tend to choose the cheapest ones in order to lower the cost. However, the strength of the floor depends on the quality of the setting materials along with the installation of its self. If your installer doesn’t use a good quality adhesive or enough adhesive or leaves hollow spots under the tiles, your tiles may pop, may become loose and crack.
