What do these words mean?
A brief guide to learn the basic terms of the ceramic world.
What if you want to know the anti-slip level of your ceramic tiles? There are four common tests. You don’t have to do it them on your own. Just pay attention to the Coefficient of Friction (CoF), the Floor Surface Roughness (Rz), the R rating and the ABC rating. The higher the value is the higher anti-slip resistance you’ll have.
When choosing a ceramic surface is very important to pay attention to the PEI Rating. But, what’s PEI Rating? The PEI helps you determine the hardness and the durability of ceramic tiles. A PEI 0 tile is better for wall, PEI 3 for residential spaces like living room and kitchen, PEI 5 tiles suits perfectly in commercial spaces where a higher resistance to abrasion and foot traffic is required.
Cleaning porcelain tiles is very easy. You just need a vacuum cleaner and a wet microfiber pad or mop for everyday maintenance. Once a week, add a mild detergent. And remember, ceramic is resistant to chemical agents, so don’t worry if you need something more aggressive to remove persistent stains.
