What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile?

Porcelain tiles are also ceramic tiles, but porcelain tiles have specific technical properties. Porcelain tiles are made using finer materials and are fired under intense pressure and temperature so they are more dense than ceramic. This higher density makes them more suitable for more demanding applications, such as high traffic areas and exteriors. Porcelains are categorized by a water absorption rate of 0.5% or less. Non-porcelain tiles have water absorption rate of more than 0.5%.
