Production of Porcelain Tiles
Producing 30*30 cm Porcelain Decorative Tiles in Arta Ceram, An Iranian Tile and Ceramic Company
Large-scale production of porcelain tile is undertaken in many countries, with the major producers being Iran (Arta Ceram), China, Italy, Morbi India, Spain and Turkey. There are also countries undertaking small-scale production, such as Australia and strong growth in Brazil.
The wear rating of the tile can be graded from zero to five according to the ISO 10545-7 (also, ASTM C1027) test for surface abrasion resistance of glazed tile, and this can be used to determine suitability for various end-use conditions.
Polished Porcelain tiles
The dense, hard surface of porcelain has made polishing a viable alternative to a glazed surface. This means that a tile can be fired, then a polish cut into the surface, creating a shine without a glaze.
