1. What are antique tiles and vitrified tiles?

Antique brick: Nowadays, the antique brick in the general sense refers to the glazed brick, which consists of two parts: the embryo body and the glaze. It is made by glazing the surface of the ceramic tile body through high temperature and high pressure. Mainly based on matt antique bricks. The antique bricks mentioned in this article refer to the glazed antique bricks.
Vitrified brick: ceramic tile that has been mechanically ground and polished and has a mirror-glossy surface. Nowadays, it is also known as a polished brick. It is a kind of all-ceramic polished brick. “Glassing” means burnt-out ceramic tile. !
According to the polishing condition of the surface, it can be divided into polishing and matt. Currently, the most common polishing is the main one.

2, the performance comparison of two bricks:

The main advantages of vitrified bricks are hardness, wear resistance, high flexural strength and lower water absorption. Vitrified bricks also have an outstanding advantage over antique bricks, that is, vitrified bricks have very good reworkability. Such as slotting, 45-degree angle on the front and back, side arcs, etc.

3, two bricks are currently misunderstood by everyone

A. The misunderstanding of vitrified bricks is mainly in the following aspects:

Misunderstanding 1: Vitrified bricks are not slip resistant

In fact, this statement is not correct, the anti-slip performance of vitrified tiles is better. You can use your feet to test your feet directly. Do not add water test when testing the anti-slip performance.

Misunderstanding 2: Vitrification brick permeability

Since the vitrified bricks are all fired by the soil and the soil at a high temperature, no matter how high the pressure is, the particles are finely ground, but the arrangement structure is larger than that of the water molecules, so there is a possibility of penetration. However, the current vitrified tile manufacturers generally have anti-fouling treatment before the factory leaves the factory, that is, waxing on the surface of the tile, which can well seal the pores on the surface of the tile, and has a good antifouling effect. . Now everyone's arguments on this issue are exaggerated. In fact, they are far from terrible.

Myth 3: Vitrified bricks are all-in-one

Vitrified bricks are not necessarily all-in-one, and now the most common ones in vitrified bricks are solid-colored ultra-white bricks. The whole body of vitrified tiles only occupies a small part of the vitrified bricks. Most of them are not all-in-one. Such as the oozing series, the ultra-fine powder series produced by many manufacturers are not completely integrated, and it is not necessary to make a complete body. Many of them are textured by a number of fabric processes, but this does not affect the wear resistance of the vitrified tiles, and there is no need to worry about the possibility of being worn away.

B. The misunderstanding of antique bricks is mainly in the following aspects:

Misunderstanding 1: Antique bricks are not wearable

The wear resistance of antique bricks is much different than that of vitrified bricks, but this does not affect the use at all, especially the use of home decoration, in terms of its wear resistance, it can fully meet the needs of home use.
