Kaleseramik produces 2200 varieties of wall tiles in 60 different dimensions. Kaleseramik wall tiles are largely used as interior and exterior wall coverings. Interior applications are mainly in bathrooms and kitchens in residential applications while the exterior applications can include swimming pools, faÃ§ades, commercial and industrial applications etc. For interior applications, ceramic wall tiles should be selected regarding the technical specifications such as PEI value, hardness, stain resistance, chemical resistance and easy cleaning, if they are to be used in the interiors of a residence. The tiles selected for exteriors should be frost resistant and have low water absorbency. For outdoor uses they normally have less than 3% water absorption but for internal applications this might rise to 16%. Depending on the use, ceramic tiles might be glazed to control abrasion and slip resistance.
