36×36 Tile Mega White Technical Porcelain Has No Glaze nor Print.
When we look at porcelain or ceramic tiles, the design and the color that we see are actually is a digital image printed on the body. Then, the print is covered with a protective layer that we call glaze. 36×36 Tile Mega white, on the other hand, has no print nor glaze. What you see on the top of the tile is the same as the porcelain body. We call these types of tiles; “Through-Body tiles.” These tiles are made with thinner and purer raw materials that help the mass (body) vitrify during the firing process where the kin temperature goes way above the firing temperature of the glazed porcelain tiles
Whereas all through-body tiles come without glaze, every single through-body tile is not necessarily a technical porcelain tile. A technical porcelain tile requires better specs that will withstand chemical agents, stains, abrasion, and impacts. They can survive unfavorable conditions that other tiles won’t survive.
Limitations of Technical Porcelain Tile
As much as the end product comes with extreme durability, it has design and color limitations. For example, It’s impossible to make a tile that looks like marble or has wood grains with such technic. The surface of the technical porcelain is the same is as the body. What wee see is not a digital print. Therefore, It’s not possible to achieve the same bright white color of a digital image. The world’s most white clay comes from Ukraine and Mega White is as white as technical porcelain can be. However, It’s not as white as digital tiles.
