Size Is A Feature. Large Format Is A New Feature.
Porcelain tile is a product that has been evolving through the years and offering better features such as lower water absorption, high definition ink-jet prints, rectified body, true polished finish and the size that’s getting bigger and bigger. Like all these new features, size also was developed to improve the aesthetics and the beauty of the floors. Large tiles aim to reduce the seam and grout by minimizing the number of tiles to cover the area. A 24×48 porcelain tile, compared to 24×24 tiles cuts the grout by half and reduces the seam drastically. The minimal seam on the floors, in addition to a clean look, also creates a spacious feel in the room.
Moreover, such size has the perfect proportion for most bathrooms, adding a similar effect of the expensive marble slabs on your walls.
24×48 Porcelain Tile Royal Marble’ PEI And Water Absorption
Ceramic tiles with water absorption of 0.5% and lower are those we call porcelain tiles. Therefore water absorption is the only value that indicates the hardness of a tile. 24×48 Porcelain Tile Royal Marble comes with water absorption of 0.5% or below which makes it a very strong tile.
PEI, on the other hand, is a test that measures the abrasion of the glaze on a scale from I to V. It does not measure or indicate the durability of the tile. Porcelain tiles are tough products. They are made to last. However, the strength of the floor depends on installation quality and the setting materials. If your installer doesn’t use a good quality adhesive or enough adhesive or leaves hollow spots under the tiles, your tiles may become loose and crack. Most porcelain tiles are made within PEI-III and IV range. 24×48 Porcelain Tile Royal Marble’s PEI is IV.
