To quantify and better understand the mechanisms contributing to the strength degradation of polished stoneware tiles, in the present work the results of flexural strength, performed on suitable samples, cut from commercial porcelain stoneware tile products, in the as fired industrially polished surfaced condition, were analysed. Furthermore, microstructural analysis, roughness and Vickers hardness tests performed on the working surfaces allowed to explain the different behaviour found.
