Full body brick: The surface of a full body brick is not glazed, and the material and color on the front and back are consistent, hence its name. Full body bricks are more wear-resistant, but their designs and colors are better than unglazed tiles.

What are the materials of ceramic tiles?

1. Full body brick: The surface of a full body brick is not glazed, and the material and color on the front and back are consistent, hence its name. Full body bricks are more wear-resistant, but their designs and colors are better than unglazed tiles. Classified into anti-skid bricks, polished bricks, and perforated bricks. The scope of application is widely used on floors such as halls, corridors, and outdoor walkways, and is generally less commonly used on walls.
Features: This is an unglazed ceramic tile with excellent slip resistance and wear resistance. Generally speaking, most of the anti slip floor tiles are full body bricks. Due to its moderate price, this type of brick is quite popular among consumers.
2. Glazed tiles: Glazed tiles are tiles whose surface has undergone firing and glaze treatment. Generally speaking, glazed tiles have richer colors and patterns than polished tiles, while also serving as anti fouling agents. But because the surface of glazed tiles is made of glaze, their wear resistance is not as good as polished tiles. Classification is divided into ceramic glazed tiles and porcelain glazed tiles based on raw materials. According to different glosses, it can be divided into two types: matte and bright.
Features: Scope of application: The kitchen should use bright glazed tiles instead of matte glazed tiles, as oil stains enter the tile surface and are difficult to clean. Glazed tiles are also suitable for bathrooms, balconies, etc.
3. Polished bricks: Polished bricks are bricks made by polishing and polishing the entire body of bricks. Compared to the roughness of the flat surface of whole bricks, polished bricks are much smoother. This type of brick has high hardness and is very wear-resistant. On the basis of the application of infiltration technology, polished bricks can produce various stone and wood like effects. Classification can be divided into porous polished bricks, micro powder polished bricks, multi tube fabric polished bricks, and microcrystalline stones. Except for bathrooms and kitchens, most indoor spaces can be used.
Characteristics: After polishing, the whole brick becomes a polished brick, which has high hardness and is very wear-resistant.
4. Vitrified bricks: Vitrified bricks are made by firing quartz sand and mud in a certain proportion, and then polished to a bright but not polished finish. The surface is as smooth and transparent as a glass mirror, making them one of the hardest among all ceramic tiles. Vitrified bricks are superior to ordinary glazed bricks, polished bricks, and general marble in terms of water absorption, edge straightness, bending strength, and acid and alkaline resistance. However, vitrified bricks are not perfect either. Their defect is that after polishing, the pores are exposed, and dust, oil, and other impurities are easy to penetrate. The main classification is floor tiles. It belongs to a type of polished brick. Scope of application: Vitrified bricks are suitable for living rooms, bedrooms, walkways, etc.
Characteristics: This is a high-temperature fired ceramic tile, which is the hardest among all ceramic tiles. Sometimes when polished bricks are scratched, vitrified bricks are still intact.
5. Mosaic: Mosaic is a special type of brick that typically consists of dozens of small bricks forming a relatively large brick. Acid and alkali resistant, wear-resistant, non permeable, strong pressure resistant, and not easily broken. It is mainly classified into ceramic mosaic, marble mosaic, and glass mosaic. It is widely used for indoor small areas, walls, and outdoor walls and floors due to its small size and colorful appearance.
Features: Multiple specifications, thin and small, hard texture, acid and alkali resistant, wear-resistant, non permeable, strong pressure resistance, not easy to break, diverse colors, and widely used.
