Clay Tiles

Clay Tiles

Clay Tiles are clay based product (typically red or white in color). The clay is quarried, purified and then dried to create a powder (body slip). The clay is injected into a mold as dry powder then pressed at a moderate pressure rate and fired at a moderate temperature to create a bisque. The fired bisque (raw tile) is then screen printed with a pigment or pattern and a clear glaze (silica glass) is applied over the top. The tile is then re-fired causing the silica to melt and form a durable non-porous layer over the top of the pigment or pattern. The glaze can be either gloss, matte or textured made from mixture of clay and other materials that are then kiln-fired. Ceramic tiles, Vitrified tiles and Terracotta tiles are all clay tiles. Depending on their specifications these tiles can be used indoor and outdoor with many applications as wall, floors,counter tops, pavings, cladding, roofs and staircases. more
