color-body porcelain

Color-body porcelain is a type of porcelain tile which includes a color in the body (i.e., biscuit) of the tile, a color which corresponds to the color of the surface's glaze.  The chief benefit of a color-body porcelain is that a chip in the surface of the tile, if suffered, is less noticeable than a chip in the surface of a glazed porcelain.  In association, a color-body porcelain and a through-body porcelain can have an exposed cut edge (as is created by a customized bullnose edge) without the oddity of manifesting the strangely different color of the tile's body, as in the case of a glazed porcelain.  A through-body porcelain is superior in regard to minimizing the cosmetic detraction caused by chips in the surface.
