Through-body porcelain is a type of porcelain tile which possess a coloration that penetrates from the surface to the bottom. It is a homogeneous flooring product. That is, the body (i.e., biscuit) of the tile is the same color as the tile's surface and underside. The chief benefit of a through-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. Furthermore, a cut edge, if exposed, is a perfect color match. Such a benefit is very helpful if customized cutting or beveling is needed (e.g, on stairs). To a less degree, a similar benefit is enjoyed with color-body porcelain.
