Porcelain Tile

What is a Technical Porcelain Tile?

A Porcelain tile is made from a blend of fine-grain clays and other minerals to produce a very dense body, which makes it highly resistant to moisture, staining and wear.
Porcelain Tiles are pressed under strong press pressure and fired at 1250 C°, which makes it totally impervious and very hard. They do not absorb any stains and become resistant to frost.
Because of these features, porcelain tiles will withstand years of heavy foot traffic in both exterior and  interior, and with facade exterior applications, while maintaining its color and beauty.

Une Tile Regulations


The UNE EN standards prepared by CEN (European Committee for Standardization) are applicable in all Europe and Australia. All type first choice of Ceramic tiles are subject to this standards.
UNE EN standards also comply with the last version of ISO international standards.

Ceramic Tiles General Regulations


The harmonized standards EN 14411 provides all classifications and features of ceramic tiles. Also the new standard UNE EN 14545 provides the testing method of the standards set by EN 14411 standards. Ceramic tiles are divided into groups depending how they are formed and their water absorption level. According to forming, they are classified as A and B.
A Extruded Ceramic tiles: They are formed by an extrusion machine and shaped by means of a mold and cut into requested sizes.
B Dry Pressed Ceramic Tiles: As raw powder, tiles are pressed by mold. Later, requested surface treatment can be applied.
Grup BIa=  E0,5%UNI EN 14411 G
Grup BIIa=3%<E6%UNI EN 14411 J
Grup BIb=0,5%<E3%UNI EN 14411 H
Grup BIIb=6%<E10%UNI EN 14411 K
Grup BIII=  E>10%UNI EN 14411 L
These regulations define the technical features of tiles as size, size tolerances and their appearances. SERANIT GRANIT SERAMIK products are produced according to dry pressed ceramic tiles and classified as Group BIa E ≤ 0,5%.
