Slab tiles, also known as large-format tiles, are a type of ceramic tile that shares many characteristics with porcelain tiles. Like porcelain tiles, slab tiles are made from fine-grained clay and fired at high temperatures to achieve durability and strength. However, there are some key differences between the two.
Slab tiles are typically larger and thinner compared to traditional porcelain tiles. They are available in larger dimensions, such as 24×24 inches or even larger, making them suitable for covering large surfaces with fewer grout lines. This characteristic gives them a more seamless and modern appearance, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the space where they are installed.
The manufacturing process of slab tiles involves pressing the clay mixture under high pressure and firing it at extreme temperatures, just like porcelain tiles. However, slab tiles might have a different composition or formulation to accommodate their larger size and thinner profile, ensuring that they remain structurally sound during and after the firing process.
One of the significant advantages of slab tiles is their versatility in design. Due to their larger surface area, they can showcase intricate patterns, veining, and textures more effectively. Slab tiles often mimic the look of natural stones, such as marble and granite, with a high level of realism, adding elegance and sophistication to interior and exterior spaces.
Similar to porcelain tiles, slab tiles offer a range of finishes, including polished, matte, and textured options, catering to various design preferences. The choice of finish can impact the tile’s appearance, texture, and overall slip resistance.
