Nature of Ceramics

a. Easily broken

General nature and is seen physically on most types of ceramic is britle or brittle, it can be seen on traditional ceramic types such as glassware, cups, jugs, pottery and so on, try to drop the plates are made of ceramic compared with plates of metal or melamine, ceramic definitely easily broken, even though these properties do not apply to certain types of ceramics, especially the type of ceramic sintering results, and the mix between the ceramic to metal sintering.
b. Resistant to high temperatures
For example, traditional ceramics consisting of clay, flint and feldfar temperature resistant up to 1200 C, ceramic engineering such as ceramic oxides can stand up to the temperature of 2000 C.
c. High compressive strength, this trait is one factor that makes research on ceramics continues to grow.
The advantages of ceramic tiles
a. Rich variety of types, shades, textures, prices and forming materials (natural stone, granite, marble)
b. Physical strength is high (higher than the parquet), the color is very long lasting, and easy to clean.
c. Waterproof surface (small water absorption) making it easy in maintenance and how to clean)
d. Resistant to scratches and heat-resistant blade (fire).
Some drawbacks of ceramic tiles
Burst in the dry season, caused by the air (not all sections under mortar filled solid ceramic) heat trapped under the ceramic tiles to expand and push the broken (Remember Indonesian tropical humid climates), other causes are less homogeneous mixture (slurry made briefly, less long) which defect to durable adhesion is not so some time later ceramic tiles off.
