Slick polished porcelain tile can be treated to become nonslip porcelain, but needs to be done with the appropriate mix of chemicals and the timing needs to be exact. When you order our products we send you complete instructions on the process. First, a small sample area will be done. Porcelain can be made slip resistant by barely doing a microscopic surface etching. THIS WILL NOT CHANGE THE APPEARANCE OF THE TILE IF DONE CORRECTLY.
If you have Polished Porcelain Tile then you need to use the Polished Surface Product.
If you have unpolished porcelain then you should use the Ceramic Tile Product.
"I recently had porcelain tile installed at the front entrance to our home, and found out how slippery it gets when it rains, because I slipped and fell on the wet tile.I then called Jack to apply the no-slip process and it really works! The process is clean and leaves no visible marks on the tile..... Jim Goins

Often we have been asked to treat slick white polished porcelain tile. It can be treated successfully but before any treatment begins every effort must be made to be sure that any remaining grout has been removed from the surface. This remaining grout may be difficult to see but over time the dyes in cleaning products can change the appearance by clinging to the grout residue.
Porcelain tile bathrooms are becoming very popular. They are indeed very beautiful and are very prone to being wet. This is one area that would be very important to treat. Slick porcelain floors can be hazardous when they are wet.
