The density of porcelain tile can make it more durable than ceramic tile while being less subject to wear and tear. This sometimes makes it more suitable for commercial use as well as in the home. Porcelain tile is almost impervious to water compared to ceramic tile. According to the ASTM standards, porcelain must have a water absorption rate of 0.5-percent or lower. Ceramic tiles are more porous and often have a higher water absorption rate.
