Discontinued grout lines between the edges of the ceramic tiles.
Installation of the tiling, adhered directly onto the structural bearing surface.
Laying pattern with parallel grout lines running along the length of the other, at both axes of the tile.
Cement-based mortar laying, which involves applying a thin layer of cement on top of the mortar before the tiles are laid. The subsequent hammering phase, with abundant amounts of water, serves to deliver adequate liquid to the powder.
A discrepancy between the surface levels of two adjacent tiles, separated by a gap or an expansion joint.
Rectifying is a process whereby the edges of the tiles are perfectly squared to create a "natural stone" effect.
The word "hardness" refers to abrasion resistance on a scale from 5 (very resistant) to 1 (not very resistant)
The quality grade characterises the supply.
Ceramic tile that has undergone mechanical processing on the sides in order to improve the uniformity of the straightness and squareness.
Ceramic tile, usually unglazed, which undergoes a mechanical surface treatment that involves the controlled removal of the most superficial layer, creating a polished-effect on the surface.
The joint must be placed at the perimeter of the tiling, for example in the case of floor tiling where this borders with elevated elements, such as pillars, walls and kerbs.
Only the thickness of the ceramic tile is of interest. It serves to subdivide external tiling into smaller, approximately square-shaped fields, in order to limit the mechanical stresses related to temperature variations.
