Tile water absorption rate is not as high as possible

Recently, some netizens reacted that they have moved into a new home for less than a year, and the tiles on the wall of their kitchen have appeared to fall off. After consulting the insiders, I realized that it was the "water disaster" of the ceramic tile itself.

The author visited several major home stores in Zhongshan and found that when purchasing ceramic tiles, very few consumers would consult about the water absorption rate. The store also gave a detailed introduction to the water absorption rate of the tiles in the product introduction. What is the water absorption rate? How does it affect the structure of the tile itself and even the interior of the house? Is the water absorption rate of the tile as high as possible? With these questions, the author interviewed the insiders.

There is no direct connection between thickness and water absorption.

"Water absorption rate refers to the ability of the product to have a certain adsorption and penetration of water. That is to say, the ratio of the quality of the water added to the quality of the original dry brick after the tile is fully absorbed in the water." Miss introduced. She said that if the water absorption rate is low, it indicates that the product has high strength, is not easy to swell, and has high internal stability; and if the water absorption rate is too high, it tends to cause the body to expand and crack, thereby causing the wall brick to fall off or the floor tile to be hollow. “For example, if the tea is accidentally poured on the floor tiles with high water absorption, the tea stains will penetrate into the ground and it is difficult to remove them.” It can be seen that the water absorption rate has a great relationship with the quality of the decoration.

If the water absorption rate of the tile is too high, the tile may fall off after being laid. If the water absorption rate is too low, the tile may be peeled off due to improper spreading.

For the online rumor that "the thicker the water absorption of the tiles, the better the water absorption rate", Miss Fan said that it cannot be generalized. “The tiles are generally divided into three categories: glazed tiles, polished tiles and antique bricks. The water absorption rate of each material is different. The anti-slip performance is strong, and the polished tiles and antique tiles used for floor laying are harder than glazed tiles. Therefore, the first two have lower water absorption and are more wear-resistant. However, the thickness of the tile is not directly related to its own absorption rate."

The public lacks understanding of water absorption rate

The water absorption of tiles has a direct impact on the aesthetics and use of the interior of the house, but many consumers do not have enough knowledge of this.

Mr. Zhao, a salesperson at Fuyi Decoration Plaza, said that most consumers only look for the brand of ceramic tiles when they buy. Even the sales staff of retail stores have no concept of “water absorption rate”. “Citizens are more trustworthy. The brand, generally if the guests do not consult the water absorption rate, we do not make too much explanation."

How to avoid buying tiles that are not guaranteed by quality? According to industry insiders, first of all, you can't be confused by various discounts in the mall. If you allow it, you can try it first. The following 5 tips should be followed when purchasing.

A look: look at the color and flatness. In general, the clearer the color of the tile, the better, with the naked eye to see if there are pinholes, pinholes are easy to accumulate. Second listening: By tapping to hear the sound density, the sound is crisp and the porcelain density and hardness are high and the quality is good. Three measurements: on-site measurement. Measure with a ruler or tape measure, four sides and diagonal lines of the tile, and check the size. Four scrapes: look at the quality from the traces. Check the surface quality of the tile, you can use a hard object to scrape the tile glaze to determine the surface hardness of the tile. Five trials: look at the water absorption rate of the tiles. In general, the low water absorption of the tiles, the higher the inherent stability of the tiles, the more suitable for the space with high moisture or moisture content.

Natural Veneer is a thin sheet of wood, rotary cut, sliced or sawed from expensive natural wood. The Veneer is easy to be edge jointed and overlaid on Plywood , MDF , particleboard and so on. So, it can be used in fancy plywood, fancy MDF, fancy Blockboard and veneer faced particleboard.

Luli Group Co., Ltd, also supply engineered wood veneers with good quality and competitive pricing.

Advantages of using Natural veneers:

Compared to wood, one of the primary advantages of using veneer is stability. While solid wood can be prone to warping and splitting, because veneer is made of thin layers of wood glued together, the chances of splitting or cracking are reduced. Further, the glue used provides additional strength, making the end result stronger than natural wood.And we have Professional Natural Veneer and Natural Wood Veneer.
