|Glazed ⓘ The coat of enamel or liquid glass that is applied to ceramic and porcelain tiles. Glazed tiles are non-absorbent so do not require sealing.||Yes|
|Requires Sealing ⓘ unglazed tiles will absorb liquid, which will lead to staining. Thus it’s necessary to apply a protective sealant to unglazed tiles.||No|
|Frost proof ⓘ Different types of floor tiles have different water absorption rates. porcelain tiles are engineered to be frost proof in temperatures below zero as they don’t absorb water (non porous).||Yes|
|Rectified edge ⓘ Has been mechanically cut or ground down to an exact size. The edges are usually precisely cut at a square 90-degree angle.||No|
|Anti slip ⓘ Slip rating given to determine how slippy a tile is. R9 has a small degree of slip resistance, right up to R13, which is the highest slip resistance.
R9 and R10 values are often used for domestic situations such as bathrooms and kitchens.
|PEI rating ⓘ PEI ratings help you determine the hardness and durability of floor tile.
PEI 3 Light to moderate (normal) traffic.
PEI 4 Moderate to heavy traffic.

Evo Senape pattern tile 20x20cm by Elios Ceramica (Italy).
An Italian porcelain tile with a smooth matt finish, anti-slip rating and frost-proof glaze suitable for walls and floors. The Evo Senape is part of the D_Esign Evo collection which uses light pastel colours to create an impression of space in a room but with the classical details of traditional Italian flooring featuring a digitally printed wallpaper design. Also known as Decoro Evo Senape Sogg A.
Although produced using modern manufacturing methods, the Evo Senape is sometimes referred to as an encaustic tile. Before the advent of screen printing (and more recently digital printing) one technique of applying different colours to tiles was to use different coloured clays. The Victorians called these encaustic tiles which were originally known as inlaid tiles. It is common for patterned tiles to be conflated with encaustic tiles because they share many similar features including colourful repeating print patterns.
Tiles classified as an anti-slip floor tile are assigned an ‘R’ value which runs along a scale from R9 (not tested but manufactured to a minimum standard) all the way through to R13 (the highest slip resistance). As the Evo Senape has an R10 slip rating, it is most suitable for dry domestic areas such as kitchens.
Frost-proof tiles are an important consideration for rooms where the temperature may drop below zero such as utility rooms and conservatories. Tiles with a frost-proof glaze have a water absorption rate of less than 0.5% meaning they are ideal for such conditions. Tiles which are not frost-proof may absorb water which would freeze at zero and below, causing the tile to crack.
Founded in 1968, Elios Ceramica specialises in small artistic porcelain tiles drawing inspiration from Italy’s historic tradition in ceramic craft and design.
