>Some basic steps to know the installation of Tiles.


Dear all,

Best selection of Tiles for your home is not making sense until you have fit it accordingly. Creation and Cleanness are the main points to be taken while installing ceramic tiles. So as far we concern, installing a Ceramic Tile is not a simple job. Those with a basic knowledge of home improvement can save a few bucks on professional installation, but those with no experience in basic construction may find it more complicated than they expected.
So before beginning any tiling project, a few steps must be taken. Most importantly, the sub floor must be checked and levelled well to ensure that there will be no imperfection under the new tile that could cause cracking later. Tile should be laid starting from the doorway out to make sure that the floor looks even when entering the room. As tiles are put into place, a level can ensure that no tile is placed higher than another. If necessary, a small block of wood with a hammer can gently press tile down when necessary. Allow the full tiles to dry overnight before walking on them if at all possible. Now, border tiles can be cut. Put a spacer by the wall and place another full tile against the spacer and offset on top of the other loose tile. Draw a line across the lower tile using the upper one as a guide. The line shows where to cut the lower tile to make it fit in the space needed against the wall. Nippers should be used for unusually shaped cuts like those around round objects. Set these pieces with adhesives just as with the full pieces and allow setting overnight once again. Next step is to remove the tile spacers and lay the grout float over the tiles at a 45`degree angle. Gently push the grout down into the spaces to be sure there are no pits. Excess grout should be wiped with a sponge and bucket. Some manufacturers may require the grout to be sprayed with water periodically while drying to prevent cracking, so be sure to check package instruction. Allow the grout to cure for a week before using a silicone sealer to protect the grout from water damage or stains.
The excellence and exhaustive fixing method is must to show your floor nit and tidy and it also presents the extra ordinary look while seeing it with very first spectacle. I found this information very useful to who doesn’t know any basic ideas about tiling floor. Many of our customers purchase the very latest designed tile with great expectations but latterly they complained us that it is not up to that mark. Tiles isn’t glowing its design and quality. So I request our every client to read the basic instructions before they apply the tiles because “we understand your choice.”

>The contribution of the design project to successful ceramic tiling

>While using ceramic tiles of the same type, size and finish, some floors and walls achieve a strong impact and are capable of making a significant contribution in terms of architectural quality, while others go totally unnoticed. What is it that makes the difference? The quality of the project. It might sound obvious, but it is not.

Here, we have frequently pointed out that Shreeji ceramic tiles are unique amongst floor and wall covering materials for their ability to combine aesthetic and technological qualities. This means not only high performance characteristics, which can be measured and certified by means of comprehensive standards, but also the intrinsic characteristics of the production process which a number of very different qualities to be combined in a single tile. At the same time their characteristics of the functionality and durability allow them to perform their functions to perfection. Ceramic tile is a sustainable product, whose environmental impact over its entire lifecycle from raw materials quarrying through to industrial production, demolition and disposal of debris has been drastically reduced over the years. This is a result of intensive technology and plant engineering innovation promoted by Shreeji ceramic.

So while there are no doubts about the quality of the materials, designers must be aware that each individual product has to be specified and installed to the highest standards if its aesthetic and technical potential is to be fully harnessed.

The role of designers is therefore not limited to product selection.

>Ceramic Industry in India.


Ceramic Industry in India is about 100 years old. It comprises ceramic tile, sanitary ware, vitrified tile called as ” man-made granite” and some crockery items. Ceramic Products are manufactured both in large and small scale sector with wide variety of type, size, quality and some standards.
India have achieved rank 5th in the world in term of production of ceramic tiles. Indian ceramic goods are being manufactured with the technology adopted by international standard.
Indian tiles are are competitive in the international market. These goods are largely exported to East and West Asian regions, European countries and USA. Now a days number of consumption of Indian Ceramic is getting popular in every corner of the world.
The main benefit are this industry in India is highly labour intensive while in developed countries like USA, UK and other countries adopt fully automation. But with that Indian market is also struggling in production capacity with second machinery and old technology. Quality and innovation is rarely occur first before these developed countries.
The only solutions is the equipments are old and need to be updated to fight international market. We require new design and latest concept of  Industry. Technology should be developed and created only in nation. R&D should be done on regular basis.
