Ceramic Versus Porcelain Tile

“Porcelain, whose ancient roots come from the Italian word porcellana (meaning cowrie shell), is composed of a mixture of clay, minerals, and water that are combined and then fired at very high temperatures. The result is a tile that’s extremely dense and not very porous, so it absorbs virtually no water. Technically speaking, porcelain can’t absorb more than 0.5 percent its weight after being fired. Otherwise, it would no longer be considered porcelain.” See the Guide to Ceramic Versus Porcelain Tile
