What is Rectified Tile? | Marazzi USA

Rectified tile is tile that has been mechanically finished on all sides to achieve uniformity and precision.  During the manufacturing process, an extra step is taken to grind the tile to precise and consistent dimensions.

The most sought after feature of rectified tile is that the uniform size allows for tile to be installed with narrow grout joints.  The narrow grout joints create a seamless, continuous look that is desired by designers.  It is recommended by the industry that grout joints for rectified tile must be at least 1/8” wide.

Rectified Tile vs. Non-Rectified Tile

Non-rectified tiles are quite different than rectified tiles.  Non-rectified tiles vary slightly in size from each production run.  There is no extra step to ensure precision amongst size as there is for rectified tile.  Due to the size variations, wider grout joints are needed to align the tile during installation.
