Glazed Wall Tiles
First, the body or ‘biscuit’ tile is made from materials such as china clay, ball clay, flint and limestone, which are mixed by careful processes into a fine powder before being heavily pressed into the required shape and size. The tile is then fired at a temperature of approximately of up 150°C.
Second, glazing is applied in the form of a mixed liquid consisting of fine particles of glaze and water.
Tiles are fixed with a suitable adhesive, which can be of thin bed of mastic adhesive or a bed of a cement-based adhesive; the former requires a flat surface such as mortar screed.
Ceramic or glazed tiles are considered to be practically inert; therefore careful selection of the right adhesive to suit the backing and final condition is essential.
Glazed tiles can be cut easily using the same method as employed for glass.
