Matt glaze tile.
Glossy glaze tile.
Rectified tiles are also known as dimensionally stable tiles.
These are tiles that have been mechanically trimmed to a certain size after they have been fired so that their edges are 90°. Achieved uniform size, consistency and optimum precision give the tile a cleaner finish and fewer deviations between tiles.
By pushing into the mold under high pressure remains in the ceramics minimum of air bubbles. It is then fired at high temperatures, making the final product hard, strong and abrasion resistant. At the same time, it is less absorbent. Located universal use in interior and exterior, on walls and floors. Sintered paving is especially suited to high-stressed areas such as tiles or building facades.
Frost resistance is determined by the degree of water absorption of the tile (ie it does not provide water to freeze it). For tiles for indoor use is not required frost resistance and moisture absorption is usually more than 10 %. In contrast, frost-resistant glazed tiles have an absorption of up to 3 %. For exterior are suitable sintered tiles with water absorption below 0.5 %.
