Flooring and Carpeting/regarding tile and marbonite


Dear Mr,Perry,

I am confusion between marbonite and tile .How I can idetify the morbonite and tile. Is there any specification is available.

Forgive my tardiness with my response Debananda, very busy at work lately.

Thank you for your question Debananda,

   I have had many questions about "Marbonite" tile, typically people are confused as to whether Marbonite and vitrified tiles are different or not. So do not be confused any longer, "Marbonite" is a "Brand" name just like Ford or Mercedes is a Brand name for a car, understand? So when you are inquiring about a "Marbonite" tile you are really just asking about the Brand name of the material. The Company that produces this product is a Global Company called JR Johnson. So if your are wanting to purchase Marbonite tile you need only ask for it by name at your local Flooring Store if they have one where you are. The specifications for vitrified tile is basically the same as Porcelain tile with a near zero absorption rate for the material. So it is a high quality product. In years past there was a limited selection (one of my biggest complaints at the time) but since then a much larger variety and selection is available to the consumer. Ok Debananda I hope this helps you with your decision and that things are more clear for you now, feel free to return anytime...
