Ceramic and porcelain tile

Molded from clay, pressed and finally heated under extreme pressure to form this rigid material. There are two main types of ceramic tile. Non-porcelain ceramic tile is the traditional type, made from a combination of white, red and brown clay, sometimes mixed with other minerals. Porcelain tile is similar, but also contains up to 50% feldspar, a type of crystal which, when heated and pressurized, forms a glasslike material that gives porcelain its extreme hardness and durability.
