Full Body Vitrified Tiles: While designing, the color seeps through the whole tile and makes it entirely pigmented, making the color and tile both sustainable for the longest time with chipping and scratch resistance

Double Charged Vitrified Tiles: Two color types are imputed in the processing machine resulting in a very thick layer of design approximately 3-4mm. Double charged tiles are utilized in heavy traffic areas

Glazed Body Vitrified Tiles: The glaze on Vitrified Tiles comes from an addition of glass on the surface of the tile. It is shiny and stains protectant. This variant of Vitrified tiles can be made by new-age technology such as digital printing that minimizes the cost and makes the tiles durable along its way. 

Vitrified tiles are resistant to deep abrasions, co-efficient to linear thermal, thermal shock resistant and carry flexural strength. It ticks all the boxes for an easy and durable yet stylish interior look

Due to their non-porous nature, they make for safer kitchen or main room installations as they don’t stain or tarnish over time. They are easy to clean and remain polished and smooth-surfaced throughout their duration. One thing to note here is the type of processing that your tiles undergo, if its the conventional soluble salt vitrification or the digital imprinting of tile, their thickness and sizes along with color variants may change accordingly. There quality does not decrease even in the high traffic areas like offices as they are hardy and resistant to stain.

THERMAL SHOCK RESITENT

They are prone to high temperatures due the process of hydraulic pressing and vitrification that they have to undergo and are heat resistant and thermal shockproof making them a very safer choice for installations with minimal maintenance cost. These are not likely to catch fire or burn if exposed to heat or certain other chemicals. They are sound proof and sound absorbents that make them an undeniable choice for houses and commercial spaces.
