Bari: porcelain tiles and mosaic Bari Porcelain tiles are a higher grade of ceramic tiles. They are much denser and stronger than most glazed ceramic tiles. Water absorption of the porcealin tiles we supply is less than 0.5% and on the Newton range less than 0.1%.
Galileo/Newton series is known as 'technical' porcelain for its excellent technical characteristics.
These are our favourite and strongly recommended porcelain tiles for various applications.
Full technical data can be provided on request.
Porcelain tiles can be used indoors and outdoors, including high traffic areas. Given their very low water absorption rate and frost-resistance, they
can be used in outdoor swimming pools (unlike ceramic tiles).
Porcelain tiles are made from a finer type of clay and are fired at a higher temperature. The result is a highly durable tile with an impervious water absorption rating. Not all porcelain tiles are full-bodied
(i.e. have the same color throughout the tile). Vitrified porcelain tiles are much denser than standard ceramics.

A note: porcelain is derived from the Spanish word porcelana and ceramic - ceramica.
