Porcelain Tile Plank Palio Beige ’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 porcelain and ceramic. It’s also the single technical value that indicates the hardness of the tile. Porcelain Tile Plank Palio Beige comes with water absorption of 0.5% or below.
Most ceramic and porcelain tiles’ surface is glazed. PEI is an abrasion test 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 traffic 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, Even a PEI-II porcelain tile will last much longer than a PEI-V ceramic tile.
