PEI Rating on Glazed Tiles:
The Porcelain enamel institute ( PEI ) came up with a testing system to rate the strength of the glaze that is applied to the tile against scratching and wearing. The ( PEI ) rating system uses numbers (1 being the least scratch and wear resistant, thru 5 being the most scratch and wear resistant) to rate the strength of the glaze on the tile once the tile is produced, most tile manufacturers will send the finished tile to the porcelain enamel institute ( PEI ) to test the strength of the glaze, or they will test the glaze strength themselves if they have the proper equipment in the factory. The test is performed on a special machine by placing a carbide wheel to the surface of the tile with weights on the top of the wheel to keep even pressure. The carbide wheel is then turned in a circular motion over the tile, and depending on how many revolutions it takes to penetrate the glaze of the tile is the number rating it receives. For example, for a tile to receive the highest rating, which is a PEI rating of 5, the glaze will have to with stand over10,000 revolutions on the machine! The following PEI rating guide will help you choose the right tile for your particular project.
