Stoneware has a water absorption rate of less than 3% percent. Stoneware is frost proof due to its low porosity. Compared to earthenware, stoneware has a higher density and a better mechanical strength. Almost all tiles for floor coverings exposed to high traffic such as for industry, commerce or public areas are made of unglazed stoneware. Stoneware tiles with glaze are classical ceramics for floors. Abrasion and slip resistance are determined by the technical properties of the glaze. Stoneware can stain and absorb fluid & moisture if not sealed correctly with a suitable sealant. We either create or buy many of our masonry materials from local suppliers in the Tri State area.
