CLAY
This is the raw material used to produce ceramics. Its main properties are: plasticity, hardening during drying, becoming rigid after firing, shrinkage during drying and firing.

 
CALIBER
Dimensional tolerance for tiles from the same production batch, normally expressed in centre measurement +/- tolerance.  
CHOICE
Type of choice that reflects the quality of the product:

1st choice - ceramic tiles with no defects.
Commercial - ceramic tiles with slight visual defects.
3rd choice - ceramic tiles with defects.
CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
Measures the capacity of the ceramic tiles to withstand attacks from acids or bases.
COVERING
Material applied on walls. The material meets aesthetic requirements but also has technical functions to give more waterproofing to walls.
Coverings can be used indoors or outdoors according to their characteristics. In the latter case, they must be particularly resistant to weather conditions in order to avoid surface deterioration over time.
CURVED SKIRTING BOARD
Skirting board with a curved based designed so as not to accumulate dirt and to facilitate cleaning. Normally used in hospital, laboratories and industrial kitchens.
Laid directly on the floor against the base tile.
 
Note: there may be differences in shades from the base ceramic tile as a different production method is used.
