Non-rectified and rectified
Non-rectified porcelain, ceramic or encaustic tiles are cut to size prior to the firing process. The firing process then causes a degree of shrinkage and warping. These tiles are graded after firing but do not undergo any additional cutting. Because of this, greater variation in size (usually a matter of 1-2mm difference) between tiles should be expected compared with a rectified tile. Rectified tiles are cut to size after the firing process and so are much more precisely sized and have perfect 90 degree corners. When designing the tile layout consideration should be given as to whether tiles are rectified or non-rectified as this will have an influence on joint width and pattern.
