What are the advantages and disadvantages of marble tiles
Marble tile is also a ceramic tile product that is firstly glazed, then fired and polished. Marble tile has both the lifelike effect of marble and the superior performance of ceramic tiles. What are the shortcomings of natural marble that marble tiles overcome? And what are the advantages of being a ceramic tile itself?

marble tile

1. Impact resistance

Natural marble is cracked and fragile, and the processing requirements are very high. A little carelessness will cause fragmentation and large loss during decoration construction; while marble tiles are made by physical pressing and chemical firing, and they are hard in texture and can be based on the actual situation of consumers. The decoration requires processing and cutting.

2. Wear resistance

The Mohs hardness of natural marble is only 3, and the surface is easy to wear when used on the ground for a long time; the Mohs hardness of marble tiles is 4-5, and the surface is protected by glaze, and the product is super wear-resistant.

3. Flexural resistance
Natural marble is easy to be broken and fragile, especially large long boards, even if the adhesive is fixed on the net, grooved and steel bars are added, natural marble is easily broken during transportation, installation and paving; marble tiles are physically pressed and chemically fired. The texture is hard and dense. Generally, a car will not break even if it slowly presses over the brick surface.

4. Stain resistance
Natural marble is mainly made of calcium carbonate naturally deposited. There are many surface crevices and it is easy to penetrate. All kinds of stolen goods in the house can easily penetrate into the marble. The surface can not be cleaned at all. Professional care is expensive; the surface of marble tiles is high-temperature burning. The made glaze layer is completely impermeable to stains, and after polishing, the surface is smooth and easy to clean.

5. Water absorption

The naturalness of natural marble results in many small holes and gaps on the surface of the marble, easy to seep water, and high water absorption rate. This is why the marble cleaning and care can not use water; while the marble tile is dense and smooth because the surface of the glaze layer is dense and smooth, and the water absorption rate is less than 0.3%. , So marble tiles can be cleaned by washing with water.

6. Green environmental protection and resource saving

The marble tiles that emerged under the continuous innovation of technology and technology meet the new requirements of "scientific development" and "beautiful China" for architectural ceramics: excellent decorative effects, excellent use performance and beneficial to the protection of the ecological and natural environment. It allows more people to enjoy the realistic decorative effects of natural marble while reducing the demand for natural marble, avoiding the negative impact of the latter's mining and processing process on the ecological environment. At the same time, the widespread use of cleaner production technology makes the production, processing and application of marble tiles more low-carbon and environmentally friendly. Taken together, it effectively protects the natural environment and saves natural resources.

7. Production process

Natural marble is rough mining and simple processing, semi-finished products are not counted. At the same time, due to the non-renewability of product phase and mine resources, supply is unstable, and replenishment is basically impossible. It is difficult to control the supply and construction period of home improvement, especially large-scale engineering projects; marble tiles are finished products produced by standardized industrial production, and the size specifications are acceptable. Produced according to requirements, the products are ready to use, the supply is stable, and the quantity can be delivered on time, and the construction period is guaranteed.
