Our Carrara Porcelain offers the beauty of this classic marble but with the practicality of porcelain.

Additional Information

Slight shade and dimensional variation should be expected between both batches and sizes of porcelain tiles. Because of this, care should be taken if wishing to mix sizes and it should be ensured that sufficient materials are ordered for your requirement in one batch. We recommend when ordering to include 10-15% for wastage and cuts.

Due to the nature of porcelain tiles and the way that they are produced, a degree of variation in dimensions should be expected. Whilst this is minimal, it can become more noticeable on larger format tiles. In order to avoid emphasising this, joints should be staggered by a maximum of 30% of the length.

Carrara Porcelain is a rectified porcelain tile.

Lead time 2 to 3 weeks

Non-rectified and rectified

Non-rectified porcelain or ceramic 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.
