Wood Grain Porcelain Tile Argenta Nieve’s Water Absorption and PEI

What we call a porcelain tile is a ceramic tile with lower absorption. Therefore, water absorption is the only difference between the two.  It’s also the single technical value that indicates the hardness of a tile. Wood Grain Porcelain Tile Argenta Nieve comes with water absorption of 0.5% or below.

What’s PEI

Glaze is the final layer of most porcelain or ceramic tiles. PEI is an abrasion test that indicates the wear and tear of the glaze on a scale from I to V under foot traffic. The recommended value for residential surfaces is PEI-III, for commercial surfaces is PEI-IV. PEI-V is recommended for extreme foot traffic areas such as malls or airports, etc. However, almost all porcelain tiles are made within the PEI-III and PEI-IV range and PEI doesn’t indicate the durability of the tile. For example A PEI-III porcelain tile will last much longer than a PEI-V ceramic tile.

Porcelain tile is a very durable product. However, the durability of the floors doesn’t depend on the tile. It mostly depends on the quality of the setting materials and installation. Wood Grain Porcelain Tile Argenta Nieve’s PEI value is IV.

Why Choose Wood Grain Porcelain Tiles Over Other Wood Alternatives?

Wood Grain Porcelain tile is not the only product in the ” wood look ” category. Laminate, Vynle, and Engineered wood are similar products mimicking original hardwood floors. Among all, porcelain tile is the one that offers the best durability besides it’s the only one that is 100% waterproof. We can use porcelain tiles even on shower walls or outdoor patios. Moreover, porcelain tiles are also excellent choices for commercial floors where we cannot use other wood alternatives.

Besides all, Wood Grain Porcelain Tile Argenta Nieve is also a great choice for kitchens since where more friction against slipperiness is required. Plus, just water is enough to remove most stains.
