What is the hardest tile flooring?

The hardest tile flooring is porcelain, making them a flexible, all-round tile – suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Porcelain tiles are made from white clay, sand and feldspar, and are much harder than ceramic tiles, which are made from coarse red, brown or white clay.

If you compare them by hardness ratings, porcelain tiles have a MOHS hardness rating between 7 and 9 and a PEI rating between 3 and 5. On the other hand, ceramic tiles have a MOHS hardness rating of 6 or 6 and a PEI rating between 3 and 4.
