They are easy to clean, maintained, and they never change color. Glass tiles have applications that vary in thick black living rooms, kitchen, bathroom etc, they are also used to highlight certain features. Although complex glass tiles to install benefits and beauty makes us complete.
The production method determines the look and shades of glass tiles. There are four main types of glass raised access floor’ (Also known as ‘พื้นกระจกยกสูง’ in the Thai language) based on their manufacturing method. They are smalti, united, sintered, and thrown. In addition, there are two other leading glass surface treatments for these tiles: declining and etching.
Tile smalti is a type of tile that is frosted glass. It has been used since ancient times. “Smalti” is the word Italian, and refers to a glass paste.
Byzantine Glass is another smalti variant made of a thinner glass plate. Metallic Smalti is a whirlpool of copper bearings added to the liquid glass before being pressed.
The blended tiles are produced using the Fusion method. In this flat glass type cut into tiles and then fired in the furnace.
The blend glass tiles are characterized by the translucent area of light and the opaque color layer that is visible through tiles. These tiles are further treated with etching or another coating, for aesthetic or abrasion.
Sintered tiles are a variety made by pressing glass powder to die and then heated until the particle fuse. The color is added to powder or added topically after cooling.
Cor tiles are made by inserting a glass lump into the mold that gives a layered display. Most recycled glass tile products made using this method make it environmentally friendly.
