Hardwood Tile Palmi Tan’s Water Absorption and PEI
Water absorption indicates the hardness of the tile. It also what turns a ceramic tile into a porcelain tile. “Ceramic tiles with water absorption of 0.5% and lower are those we call porcelain tiles.” Therefore water absorption is the only value to determine a tile’s durability. Hardwood Tile Palmi Tan comes with water absorption of 0.1% or below. 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 1 to 5. 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. All porcelain tiles are made within the PE-III to PEI-IV rate.
Since the durability of a tile depends on water absorption levels, A PEI-III porcelain tile will last much longer than a PEI-IV ceramic tile. Hardwood Tile Palmi Tan’s PEI value is IV. However, the quality of the setting materials and the installation can increase or lower the durability of the porcelain floors more than ANY PEI OR WATER ABSORPTION VALUE.
