Ceramic tiles that you can use to keep your home cool, dry and look great can withstand water damage, according to a new study by researchers at the University of California, Davis.
The research, which was published in the journal Water Research, was led by University of Southern California (USC) Professor Andrew A. Wertheim.
The study, which included an experiment on four ceramic tiles from the U.S. market, found that they could withstand a 5-10 foot (1.5-3.5 meters) pool of water.
Wirtheim said this was because of the properties of the tiles.
“The water will not pass through them and they can withstand the weight of the water in a very good way,” Wirtham said.
“I think that’s why people are interested in them.”
The research was carried out with the help of researchers at Stanford University, UCLA, and UC Davis, and the results were published in Water Research.
It is thought that water may have a beneficial effect on ceramic tiles.
In fact, in a previous study, Wirtghoel found that ceramic tiles made from recycled plastic could withstand up to 20 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit) of water, which would cause the tiles to peel.
The new research, however, was carried to the next level by showing that the tiles could withstand water at temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius (-400 degrees Fahrenheit).
This, in turn, makes the tiles a good candidate for the use in a building designed to be waterproof.
“What makes this tile interesting is that it can be used in the water-proofing market,” Wertheheim said.
The researchers believe that ceramic tile can be a more environmentally friendly alternative to plastic and other materials used in building materials.
The tiles could also be used to make waterproofing systems, like the ones you can buy at home improvement stores, according the study.
The ceramic tiles could be a good alternative for water-resistance in homes, according Wirtheheim.
“They are very inexpensive and can be made of ceramic, which is an inexpensive material, and they do a good job of absorbing water,” Wartheim said, adding that the tile also doesn’t get wet.
“If you want to go from a standard, non-toxic surface like a carpet to a water-resistant surface, you’re going to have to use different materials,” he said.
Wirtheim hopes that his study will lead to more use of ceramic tile in homes.
“This research will provide some guidance to the industry, especially to homeowners, in terms of what they can use for the design of their own homes,” he told News24.
