In modern home decoration, the use of tiles is increasingly inseparable. However, there are so many types of ceramic tiles, large and small, according to different production processes can be divided into full body tiles, polished tiles, glazed tiles and vitrified tiles. Among them, as a kind of glazed tiles, fully polished glaze is favored by the home improvement market. However, many owners have little knowledge of the full polished glaze, and they have no way to start when decorating and purchasing. So, how to choose a full polished glaze? What are the matters needing attention when purchasing?
First of all, it is recommended that owners understand the characteristics of full polished glaze before purchasing. Fully polished glaze refers to glazed tiles that have been fully polished. The high-quality fully polished glaze has the advantages of rich patterns, vivid texture patterns, strong three-dimensional effect, fine and smooth surface, and high gloss. In the building materials market, fully polished glaze belongs to middle and high end ceramic tiles. Generally, the selling price is higher than that of full-body tiles, polished tiles and vitrified tiles.
Combining the characteristics of full polished glaze, in actual selection, the quality can be distinguished by testing the surface texture, water absorption and wear resistance of full polished glaze.
The first point is to distinguish by observing and touching the fully polished glaze surface. A high-quality all-polished glaze is bright, clean and bright, with high gloss, the surface of the glaze is crystal clear, smooth as a mirror, smooth and delicate to the touch with good texture. When selecting, if there are obvious mosaics, black spots, color spots or pinholes on the surface, rough hand feeling, messy texture patterns, large color difference and other defects, it means that the quality of the fully polished glaze is poor.
The second point is to test the water absorption rate of the polished glaze through a simple water seepage experiment. If you are choosing floor tiles for home decoration, water absorption is an important performance that has to be considered. Since the full polished glaze is polished on the glaze layer, and the surface glaze layer plays a protective role, the water absorption rate is usually relatively low. When testing the water absorption of the fully polished glaze, you can pour a little water on its back and let it stand for more than 5 minutes to observe the diffusion and penetration of water. The less likely it is to seep water, the lower the water absorption and the compactness of the fully polished glaze. The better, the higher the quality.
The third point is to test the wear resistance of the full polished glaze. Relatively speaking, the flaw in full polished glaze is wear resistance. If you buy a low-quality fully polished glaze, the wear resistance is worrying, and it is easy to be scratched and worn during use. When choosing a full polished glaze, you can use one tile to scratch another tile. If scratches are easily caused or the scratches are obvious, it is recommended to purchase with caution.
The full polished glaze has high appearance and high quality, which is certainly a good choice for families with sufficient decoration budget!
