Calacatta Porcelain Tile Dozza Gold’s Water Absorption and PEI
What we call a porcelain tile is indeed a ceramic tile with lower absorption. Therefore, water absorption is the only technical difference between the two. It’s also the single technical value that indicates the hardness of a tile. Calacatta Gold Look porcelain tile Dozza Gold comes with water absorption of 0.1% or below. It’s among the hardest and strongest porcelain tiles.
Most ceramic and porcelain tiles are glazed products. PEI is an abrasion value that indicates the wear and tear of the glazed surface on a scale from I to V. The recommended value for residential surfaces is PEI-III, for commercial surfaces is PEI-IV. PEI-V is recommended for extreme foot areas such as malls or airports. However, almost all porcelain tiles are made within the PEI-III and PEI-IV rate.
Since the durability of a tile depends on its water absorption levels, A PEI-III porcelain tile will last much longer than a PEI-IV ceramic tile. Calacatta Porcelain Tile Dozza Gold’s PEI value is IV.
