Glazed tiles are getting more popular and it’s no surprise because they look amazing. These types of tiles are made in the exact same way unglazed tiles, except they undergo one additional stage. Glaze is a glass or hard finish is applied to the surface of the tile and can be a glass wear layer or hard finish. These tiles are pressed in a die and then fired in a kiln to render their hard surface. The aim of this process in to liquefy the glass allowing it to fuse to the bisque (or the body of the tile) This glaze then seals the surface, making it non-porous meaning it will protect your tile from stains and moisture. Glazed tiles are incredibly easy to maintain and can be easily treated to make them more slip resistant.
Glaze can also mean the material that the coating is made from. The glaze can either be glossy, matte and provides the colour of glazed tiles, and these colours are made from a mixture of minerals.
