Ceramic tile was used almost everywhere -on walls, floors, ceilings, fireplaces, in murals, and as an exterior cladding on buildings. Ceramics are defined as products made from inorganic materials having non-metallic properties. Ceramic tiles have a number of outstanding properties which determine their usefulness. One of the most
appreciated features is their great durability. This durability can be divided into three types namely chemical, mechanical and thermal.
• Water absorption
• Not affected by oxygen
• Abrasion resistance
• Impact resistance
• Breaking strength
• Stain resistance - resistant to almost all acids, alkalies, and organic solvents.
