Tile selection according to tiles' absorption

Normal absorbent tiles (more than 3% absorption) such as ceramic tiles, general wall tiles, clay tiles Low absorbent tiles (0.5% - 3% absorption) such as homogeneous tiles, granites, granitos, glazed clay tiles, marbles, industrial tiles, and tiles for use in swimming pools Non-absorbent tiles (less than 0.5% absorption) such as marble tiles, artificial stones, glass mosaics, plastic mosaics, and glass tiles Remark: to easily measure absorption of the tile is to drop water on tile's back and observe the absorption.

Tile selection according to application

Floor application: tiles being specified for floor application should be selected because of the low porosity, hence low water absorption making tiles being strong. Tiles will be easily broken if misusing wall tiles on floor. Main purpose of using floor tile is to have easy-to-clean, beautiful, and strong floor. Other material with the same properties could be used, such as granites and marbles. Wall application: tiles being specified for wall application should be selected because of the light weight property. Wall tiles are designed to have good bonding on the walls and can be used instead of painting or wallpaper. Special glaze wall tiles should be used for exterior application. Application on the area where continuously subject to water: tiles with rough surface should be selected to prevent being slippery when using in bathrooms, balconies, washing areas, and parking areas. Application on the area that aesthetic look is required: glazed tiles should be selected to add beauty to room decoration, such as lobbies, living rooms, and bedrooms. 5. Application on the area where durability is required: robust tiles should be selected to use on parking areas and industrial areas, where subject to impact.
