Have had the decoration experience you, must buy the ceramic tile the recollection. On the market there are many kinds of different materials, crafts, color tiles, sales staff will also select a number of Bo people eyeball the term to the consumer introduction: polished tiles, glazed tiles, porcelain half ceramic tiles, antique bricks, cement bricks, wood-grain tiles, small tiles ... Without looking at the object, it is enough to be dazzled by the mere names.
How are these tiles different in terms of raw materials and processes? Can these various names reflect the quality of the tiles? How should consumers buy according to actual needs? The reporter of this newspaper interviewed.
Don't be fooled by a variety of names.
The naming of tiles can be based on materials, process, appearance and other characteristics, the derivative of a number of different sounding names-such as the market on the sale of tiles, from the material said "glazed tile", from the process is "glazed brick", from the appearance of the "imitation marble brick." Therefore, manufacturers in the development of tile name, will pick up the high-end name. Therefore, consumers in the purchase of ceramic tiles, first do not be confused by a variety of names.
Not only that, the ceramic tile product upgrades the speed very fast, the performance better material, the more advanced craft, the more beautiful texture unceasingly market, the tile name also renews unceasingly. Some sound high-end tile names, and do not show the quality of their good.
Because of the variety of ceramic tile name and product turnover speed is very fast, consumers do not need to use different materials, technology to determine the quality of ceramic tiles. For most consumers, to standardize the building materials market, select a good reputation of ceramic tile manufacturers directly buy. Large brands of ceramic tile manufacturers, their own standards than GB to be more detailed, and the larger the brand, the more stringent standards, after-sales service is also guaranteed.
Reporter learned that most owners judge the tile is still "Yan value", if you can take into account the hardness of the tile, water absorption rate and other indicators, enough to buy good quality tiles. In addition, special attention needs to be paid to avoid radioactive elements tiles when buying tiles. Radioactive elements can make rocks green or red, but do not mean that all red or green rocks contain radioactive elements; if white rocks contain radioactive elements such as potassium, rare earths, and uranium, radioactivity must be higher than other ordinary rocks.
Anti-slip wear-resisting bricks for kitchen and toilet
Tiled rooms are mainly bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, in which, kitchen and bathroom tiles must be non-slip and stain-resistant, wall-brick water absorption rate is high.
Although there is friction coefficient, wear degree to define the degree of Non-slip block, but not every tile has been tested, there are testing reports, so choose to be particularly careful. It is necessary to note that Matt tiles must be better than the bright surface tiles non-slip, the first touch can be felt, rough tiles wear-resistant, concave-convex texture of the tile non-slip better. Reporter visited the market to understand that the sale of anti-skid brick in the market is the main brick, the brick has a plain, oozing flowers and so on. For example, ceramic mosaic has a good non-slip effect, seam, rough, friction, by many families in the bathroom choice.
Because the kitchen, bathroom to cook, bath and other behavior, so the quality of tile paving is better, it is not easy to fall off. Within the prescribed range, the lower the water absorption rate, the lighter the quality of the ceramic tile and cement mortar bonding more tightly, the more difficult to fall off.
Among them, the most important indicator is the water absorption rate. According to the water absorption rate, tile also has different names, such as: water absorption rate of less than 0.5% called porcelain brick, above 10% is called pottery brick, between porcelain brick and ceramic tile in the middle of stoneware porcelain, fine quality and so on. "The old methods used to detect the water absorption of ceramic tiles are not universally applicable. For example, as long as the water droplets in the back of the tile, to see the absorption rate can determine the level of water absorption, now a lot of tiles are glazed tiles, this brick surface is a layer of water-absorbing glaze, only the back of the material to measure the water absorption rate is not very meaningful. Industry insiders said.
Therefore, in simple terms, from the production process, the low water absorption of the tile is often because the machine pressure more tightly, high density. So stroll the building materials market, take the same specifications of the two pieces of wall brick, you can determine which tile water absorption rate is higher.
The living room chooses "microcrystalline spar" carefully
In addition to kitchen and bathroom tiles, living room tiles are also widely used in many homes, floor tiles than wood flooring, carpets and other easy to take care of. Common on the market suitable for the living room tiled tiles are: Polished tiles high hardness, microcrystalline tiles and so on.
Today, the decoration designer Wang suggested that the living room is the family and visitors walk the most frequent, the most easy to accumulate dirt area, so tile selection of more attention to stain resistance, not easy to penetrate the color of liquid, and not easy to show dirty. Ceramic tiles resistant to pollution, the need for long-term use of the owners to know, a few minutes of the test can not see what. For example, use an oily pen to paint a picture on the tile and then rub it off, or drop ink again, and can not determine whether the tile is dirty.
Select, like bright surface tile owners can in polished tiles, glazed tiles, all polishing, porcelain tiles, such as tile selection, such tiles with high hardness, high density, low water absorption characteristics.
