What is a Polished or High Gloss Finish?
Polished and High Gloss are both terms to indicate that a product has a gloss finish.
Polished Finish: This is a mechanical process, the tile is passed through a succession of polishing pads that mechanically buff the surface of the tile to create a high-sheen finish, ultimately resulting in a smooth and shiny appearance with a rectified edge.
High Gloss: The tile’s surface is coated with glaze prior to entering the kiln to be fired and is usually a process reserved for ceramic materials. The finished product results in a smooth and shiny appearance with a rectified or pressed edge.
