What kind of tiles are used in the bathroom:
The bathroom usually has a relatively high humidity, and the requirements for the tile are waterproof, slip resistant and wear resistant. The bathroom floor tiles are generally made of whole body bricks, which have good non-slip wear resistance; the bathroom wall tiles are usually made of glazed tiles, and the glazed tiles are rich in glazed color patterns and have strong anti-pollution ability.
Bathroom tile selection index 1: tile texture density
Tiles for the purchase of bathroom space have stricter requirements on the quality of the tiles themselves. When purchasing tiles, you can see from the side whether the brick surface is flat and whether there are pinholes with uneven thickness. At the same time, it is possible to tap the tile to hear whether the sound is crisp and the sound is more brittle, indicating that the tile has a high density and a good hardness.
Bathroom tile selection index two: tile water absorption rate
Tiles for the purchase of bathroom space must first pay attention to its water absorption rate. In general, high quality tiles have a low water absorption rate so they can dry quickly. If the tile does not indicate the water absorption rate, you can use tea or water droplets on the back of the tile. After a few minutes, the degree of diffusion of the water droplets is observed. The less water is absorbed, the lower the water absorption rate and the better the quality.
Bathroom tile selection index three: the degree of glaze on the brick surface
When purchasing, it can be identified by judging the thickness of the glaze on the tile surface. The surface of the brick can be scraped with a hard object, and if a scratch occurs, it means that the glaze is insufficient. After the thinner glaze layer on the tile surface is polished, the brick surface is easily stained, difficult to clean, and lacks safety. Some unglazed floor tiles are generally not suitable for being placed in a damp and closed environment, because the pores on the bricks are not able to diverge when they absorb water vapor, which can also cause mold to appear.
