What is the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles?
Both porcelain and ceramic tiles are made from clay, but the difference lies in the temperature and type of clay used. Porcelain tiles are made from refined clay and are kiln-fired at a high temperature, making them highly durable and non-porous. Ceramic tiles are made of less fine clay at a lower temperature, and the outcome is less dense and more porous. Porcelain tiles are waterproof and suited for indoor and outdoor areas with high traffic and moisture levels such as walls, commercial spaces and bathrooms. Porcelain tiles are also more expensive than other types of tiles. We carry MSI Porcelain Tile in various colors and finishes including Matte, Polished and Glossy.

Can you put MSI Porcelain Tile on floor and wall?
While there is no visible difference in the appearance of a floor or wall tile that can distinguish the two, the weight, thickness, and friction level decide if a tile is fit for floor application. Heavy thick tiles with COF (Friction Rating) of 0.5 are recommended for floor tiles but can be applied on walls as well. Within MSI Porcelain Tile, we carry 445 Floor and Wall, 51 Wall and 17 Floor.
