Is resin tile the traditional glazed tile?

Resin tiles? Glass tiles? Resin tiles? Glass tiles? Do we often hear these two types of tiles? So, are resin tiles traditional glass tiles? The answer is: no! They are two different types of tiles!



Resin tiles are a new type of environmentally friendly tile. Resin tiles can be divided into natural resin tiles and synthetic resin tiles, with synthetic resin tiles being more commonly found on the market. Synthetic resin tiles are made from high-weather-resistant engineering resin ASA. ASA is a ternary polymer composed of acrylonitrile, styrene, and acrylic rubber.



Terracotta tiles are a traditional building material in our country, made by firing clay at high temperatures. The main components are silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide, and lead oxide. Terracotta tiles are ceramic products with a semi-transparent glass surface.



Why are two different types of tiles mistaken for being the same? This is because resin tiles are designed to resemble terracotta tiles, inheriting their rich colors and beautiful shapes. However, resin tiles are made from high molecular polymers and have far surpassed terracotta tiles in terms of functionality, also compensating for many of their flaws. Due to their similar appearance, people also refer to resin tiles as resin terracotta tiles. Have you all understood the distinction now?
