Newcastle
Product Type: Glazed Porcelain
Glaze Hardness: 6.000
Close GLAZE HARDNESS

The relative hardness of glazed tile is an important issue that should be addressed when selecting a tile. The test is performed by scratching the surface of the tile with different minerals and subjectively assigning a Method of Hardness "MOH's" number to the glaze. The softest mineral used is talc (a #1 rating if no scratch), the hardest is a diamond (a #10 rating if no scratch). Other minerals of varying hardness that provide MOH's values of five or greater are suitable for most residential floor applications while a value of seven or greater is normally recommended for commercial applications. Both abrasion resistance and glaze hardness should be addressed when considering using glazed tiles as floor products.

Shade & Texture Variation: Moderate
Close SHADE & TEXTURE VARIATION

Variations in size, color, texture, and pattern are to expected in ceramic flooring. In fact, they should be enjoyed. These variations are part of what makes ceramic tile such a unique and beautiful choice for your home.

Each Shaw Ceramic flooring product is labeled for shade and color variation with one of the following ratings:

  • Low – Consistent shade and texture
  • Moderate – Moderate shade and texture variation
  • High – High shade and texture variation
  • Random – Very high shade and texture variation

For a neat, contemporary-looking tile floor, choose a tile with a low shade and texture rating. A tile with a high or random shade and texture rating will achieve a more casual, rustic effect.

Sq. ft. per carton: 13.78
Surface Texture: Stone
Surface Finish: Smooth
Newcastle is a gentle, subtle stone visual with a soft, satiny surface texture. There is light to moderate variation between the tiles, which come in fashionable sizes: 20x20, 12x12, and 2x2 mosaics. The 20x20 format makes Newcastle highly suitable for modern rooms, while the 12x12 is a more classic look. But overall, the subtlety of the design allows this product to go from traditional to contemporary settings with ease.
