Vitrified tiles (also called stoneware) are tiles with a water absorption between 0.5% and 3%. Vitrified tiles are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and they are especially suitable for areas of heavy footfall and light industrial areas.
Fully vitrified tiles (also called Porcelain) are tiles with a water absorption less than 0.5%. Fully vitrified tiles have the lowest porosity possible and therefore are especially suitable for areas where high stain resistance and hygiene is required or outdoor applications with increased frost resistance. Both Vitrified and fully vitrified tiles can be glazed or unglazed. (Courtesy of my old Pilkington Tiles brochure !)

Vitrified tile is a tile which has been processed in such a way that it has very very low porosity (and water absorption) which make it stain resistant and very strong.

Vitrified Tiles have far superior properties compared to marble or natural granite because being a manufactured product their quality is controlled whereas in naturally occurring marble and granite good quality is just a coincidence. Vitrified tiles posses much better mechanical strength, scratch resistance, resistance to acids, alkalies and chemicals, resistance to staining etc compared to marble or natural granite.

Vitrified tiles are ceramic tiles of low porosity ( less water absorption ) and also stain - resistant . Fancier name for little better quality ceramic tiles nothing extraordinary to go ga-ga about.
