What is vitrified tile?

Vitrified ceramic tile is a super hard, extremely durable industrial-grade building material. Tiles are dry pressed and fired at high temperatures, melting some of the natural mineral elements in the ceramic and creating a tile harder than steel and more resilient than concrete. The extreme density of these thick tiles makes them naturally nonporous. Properly installed with the right mortar and grout, vitrified tile provides a hard-wearing, chemical-resistant surface that stands up to the rigors of the most demanding industrial environments. Tile can be installed through either the traditional thinset or European vibration method.

What is clinker?

True clinker tile is a partially vitrified industrial-grade floor tile. Like vitrified tile, it is dry pressed and fired at high temperatures to create a hard, dense material. Over the years, the term "clinker" has been generalized  to refer to all industrial ceramic tiles. Specifications will sometimes call for "clinker" when the specifier really meant fully vitrified tile, which has greater density and resistance. Often, you can tell which tile the specifier wanted by checking the color - vitrified tile comes in a variety of colors, while true clinker tile comes only in shades of brick red.

Does the tile need to be sealed?

You do not need to apply any kind of sealant to Argelith tiles. A unique baked-on finish seals microscopic openings that might trap dirt, improving cleanability and further protecting the already impervious surface from stains.
