How to choose high-quality mosaic tiles?

2. Surface and glazed surface

Mosaic tiles are popular for indoor or outdoor space basically because of its good decorative effect, that is, the glaze. The quality of glaze is critical. Hence, it is the key to know how to check glaze quality including pinhole, spot, chromatic variance and texture.

If handing on the surface of mosaic tiles and it is slippery, it will cause slipping and knocking and other safety hazards. When watering in the mosaic tiles surface, slower skid performance is better.

6. Water absorption

Water absorption is the key index that determines the quality of mosaic tiles. It is the ratio that points to weight of tiles itself and the weight after absorbing sufficient water, which reflects the absorption and permeability of tiles to water.

To a great extent, water absorption has influence on hardness, intensity and wear-resistance. Lower water absorption, higher hardness, stability and better abrasion resistance.
