What is the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles?

The main difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles is in their technical characteristics. Porcelain tiles are characterized by extremely low water absorption (<0.5%), high density, hardness and stain resistance. The density of porcelain stoneware is what makes it highly resistant to any kinds of liquid penetration, they are easy to clean and sunlight resistant, and that is the reason why they are so versatile: you can use porcelain stoneware both for floors and walls in interiors and also for exteriors such as facades, walkways, parking, barbecue area, swimming pool. While traditional ceramic tiles have a higher water absorption rate and a limited possibility in their application: they are recommended only for interiors, especially, for walls.
