digital glazed vitrified

The influx of digital printing technology in ceramic industry in recent years has introduced many path-breaking innovations in digital/Glazed vitrified tiles. Glazed Vitrified Tiles (GVT) have a glazed surface and the glaze layer on top of vitrified tiles allows us to print any design that include a wide variety of designs like 3D designs, art work and surface textures like natural stone-look, marble, bamboo, wood or any design or picture that you may so wish.

Digital Glazed Vitrified Tiles:

Glazed tiles are the most commonly used tiles and the printing is done by a high-volume inkjet printer upto 1mm. There are thus many design possibilities including aspects like design variations, high-resolution printing and sharper finishes that a GVT can carry limited only by the budget and cost of digital printing. However, these are not suitable for areas with heavy traffic.

Different Types of Glazed Vitrified Tiles

Digital Glazed Vitrified Tiles come in so many varieties, style and color that it can get overwhelming to select your perfect design. However, apart from designs, Digital glazed vitrified tiles come in two different types:

Polished Glazed Vitrified Tiles:

These polished GVT are super-glossy and are available in wide range of styles and designs, thus making them ideal for interiors. They go through an additional firing process wherein a layer of liquid glass is added to GVT. This also makes them less slip-resistant and scratch-resistant compared to unpolished glazed vitrified tiles. However due to the non-porous liquid glass coat polished glazed vitrified tiles show higher stain-resistant. Polished glazed vitrified tiles like the Bottochino or the Royal Bruni Beige are excellent examples and a great choice for interiors in hotels and restaurants.

Unpolished Glazed Vitrified Tiles:

These are denser, thicker and more durable which makes them ideal for outdoors or areas with heavy traffic. Further, due to their excellent slip-resistance they are a great choice for bathroom, kitchen or any area where you require a slip-resistant area and that may have high moisture. Because of their scratch-resistance and beautiful earthen aesthetics, these also make a great visual appeal.
