Full-body vitrified tiles are ideal for flooring as they can take heavy foot traffic and withstand wear and tear without getting damaged. Vitrified tiles are made by mixing clay, feldspar, quartz and silica at high temperatures. They are full-body ceramic tiles that are processed and manufactured by a vitrification process which makes them strong and durable.
Cool roof tiles come with a glazed coating of zirconium oxide, alumina silicate, or zirconium silicate, chemicals and compounds that do not let heat get transferred. These materials absorb less heat and shoot them back into the atmosphere, which is why they are most suited for terraces, pavements and even open balconies. To check their durability, Orientbell puts these full body tiles through a test, called the truck test. The results showed that the tile stays unaffected even when a 50 ton truck is parked over it or is driven on it multiple times.

What are full body vitrified tiles made of that makes them this durable?
FB Tiles are formed by a vitrification process in which clay, feldspar, quartz and silica are mixed at high temperatures. During this process, the grains of the required color are added to the base tile, which creates a homogenous mixture that runs throughout the tile. Because of this homogeneity, the top layer can bear more wear & tear thereby acting as a more durable option.
What are the advantages of full body vitrified tiles over Kota stone?
This is one question that has been very frequently asked. These tiles easily emerge victorious when we compare it to the Kota stone. They are made by vitrified processes and have a homogeneous body. They have better scratch hardness (they measure 6 on Mohs’ scale compared to 3-4 points for Kota stone). Hence, once installed, they are ready to take heavy footfall and even heavy vehicular traffic and, hence, don’t allow wear and tear. All this while keeping the aesthetic appeal of the surface intact. On the other hand, the top layer of the stones are prone to slight chipping, which can make them look shabby and unpleasant. Even when it comes to water resistance, tiles are a better choice than stones as they have almost negligible water absorption (less than 0.08% compared to stone’s estimated 0.31%). They come in matte finish and are slip-resistant flooring, unlike Kota stone, as sometimes highly polished stones tend to become slippery. Last but not the least, full-body vitrified tiles are easy and hassle-free to install and maintain whereas Kota stones may need polishing every 3-4 years. All in all, tiles are more durable and even more cost-effective.

Both the variants—9.5mm as well as 15.5mm—are appropriate for high traffic areas but one can be chosen over the other depending on the usage. The 15.5mm full body tiles are thicker and have a high breaking strength of minimum 6250N. These tiles can withstand the load of a standing aircraft upto 100 tons. These heavy-duty tiles covers more rugged application areas such as walkways, pathways, hypermarkets, mall facades, college facade etc. They can also be used for industrial flooring such as that of warehouses, factories, fire stations, automobile plants, footpaths, etc. The 9.5mm variant can be used for areas that do not require very heavy-duty tiles. Their durability is appropriate for residential areas and places where there is not much vehicular traffic but need durability nevertheless.
