Advantages of Wood Like Floorings

Besides, porcelain tiles don’t require maintenance. Most stains can be removed with only water. This is an excellent feature for wood like flooring in every room.

Whether it’s a commercial or residential project, you can have your dream flooring for a surprisingly affordable price. Available in 8×48 rectified porcelain tile from Turkey.
PEI or Water Absorption?
Ceramic tiles with water absorption of 0.5% and lower are categorized as porcelain tiles. Water absorption is what indicates the hardness of the porcelain tile. Wood like flooring tile TrendWood Mink 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 PEI for residential surfaces is III, for commercial surfaces is IV. PEI V is for extreme foot areas such as malls or airports. All porcelain tiles are made within the PEI 3-4 rate. A PEI3 porcelain tile will last much longer than a PEI4 ceramic tile. TrendWood Mink’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
