Sihaiwang: now in the family decoration, most of the families use ceramic tiles. Ceramic tile is a very important decoration item, the advantages of ceramic tile are very obvious and good-looking. Which is better, then, to polish and glaze the tiles? Let's get to know with Xiaobian!
What is ceramic tile polishing and glaze polishing
Polished ceramic tile is a kind of bright brick, which is made by grinding the surface of the whole body brick embryo. The surface is bright and clean, hard and wear-resistant. Suitable for many occasions. In addition, on the basis of the use of infiltration technology, polished ceramic tiles can make a variety of stone like and wood like effects.
What is ceramic tile glaze
Glazed ceramic tile is a new process ceramic tile that can be polished on the glaze, with bright and clean surface and rich color. The manufacturing process is relatively complex.
Looking at the definitions of the two above, it may not be enough to distinguish them. Let's make a detailed comparison to let you know more about the difference between the two.
Comparison of tile polishing and glaring in terms of durability
The technology of glazed brick is simply to add a layer of glaze on the surface of polished brick, which is better in transparency and brightness. But its wear resistance is lower than that of polished brick, because its crystal is very thick and wear-resistant. The glaze is easy to be scratched by hard objects.
In terms of pollution resistance
Because of the production technology, the polished brick surface is easy to hide stains and water stains, and it is not suitable for laying in the kitchen and bathroom space. However, the anti fouling performance of polished brick is relatively good, and daily cleaning is more convenient.
In terms of color
The color of polished brick is more single than that of glazed brick, so when choosing, you can buy according to your own personal requirements.
In terms of price
The technology of glazed brick is relatively complex, so the price will be higher and the cost performance of polished brick will be higher.
From the scope of application
The characteristics of polished brick are more suitable for living room, balcony and other spaces with relatively less pollution sources. The glazed tiles are more suitable for washrooms, kitchens and other areas that are relatively easy to be messy.
How to distinguish between polished ceramic tile and glazed ceramic tile
The difference between the colors of the polished brick surface is not too strong, and your full glaze casting is also completely unrestricted. There is no problem with red, black, yellow, blue, blue and purple. The texture of polished brick can't be very small, and the fine grain like needle and thread can be achieved by full glazing.
The key difference is brick
Polished brick is to infiltrate the color into the brick, so the color of the brick 1-2mm below the surface is the same as the surface. But the whole glaze is totally different, which will not penetrate into the brick. If there is only one very thin color layer on the brick surface, it must be the whole glaze.
Can the floor tiles be polished and renovated when they are old
Generally speaking, the old floor tiles can be renovated. But it should be noted that there is no way to retain the painting pattern on the surface of the tiles. The renovation procedure and method of the floor tiles are the same as that of the granite renovation. The commonly used tools are the renovation disc, the renovation machine and the crystal face agent, which are relatively easier and less expensive than the granite renovation.
The floor tiles are old, the common renovation methods are cleaning and renovation
For the old floor caused by pollution control, it is mainly to clean and remove the stains, and the black edge can be washed with banana water; the floor tile with small damage can be waxed, but the floor is too slippery after completion, so it is not recommended to use.
Replace local bricks
In view of the situation that only local damage is serious, the tiles to be replaced shall be broken and replaced with tiles with the same color number as far as possible. Therefore, it is recommended to leave a small amount of tiles for future repair.
Remove old floor tiles
A few of the floor tiles that have been worn for more than ten years or even decades can be intact. Most of the enamel on the surface of the floor tiles has been seriously worn and dirty, and it is no longer possible to replace them. Some colorful floor tiles can't find the same model and style now, so if you want to change them, you can only shovel all the original floor tiles and pave them again.
Laying new bricks on old bricks
If the original floor tiles are relatively thin, and it is too troublesome to remove the floor tiles, it is advisable to consider directly laying new floor tiles on the old floor tiles. Brush the surface of the old tiles with tile surface treatment agent, tile \ \ mosaic adhesive, and then pave the new tiles, which can save a lot of time and energy.
Keep old floor tiles
If the design and color of the floor tiles at home are not particularly outstanding, and the same type of floor tiles can be found on the market, only the seriously worn and broken bricks need to be removed, and the basically intact ones can be left untouched. However, the pointing of floor tiles must be removed and redone, because its use time is too long, there are a lot of bacteria and dirt, and it must be done again, and the floor tiles will be more beautiful after re pointing.
Floor on old tiles
This method is done by few people. If you want to try it, you need to thoroughly clean the original floor, and then lay the floor after disinfection, otherwise bacteria and microorganisms will grow under the floor. Because the floor is directly paved on the floor tile, the height difference of the floor increases, which will have a direct impact on the height of the door, so this method should be carefully considered.
Apply diluted hydrochloric acid to the ground to remove alkali, then clear water, and directly apply the floor paint for two to three degrees after drying;
It's cheap but the air quality is not good.
UV UV curable reactive paint
The paint is nontoxic, tasteless, acid and alkali resistant, friction resistant, full film, high brightness, no condensation, no dust collection, easy to clean, strong adhesion and aging resistance. When renovating the floor tiles, it is necessary to clean up the debris to prevent the debris from entering the sewer, blocking the pipeline and affecting the drainage.
