The Quartz compact composites are made using an system created by Breton (an Italian machinery manufacturer); based on this system & the Italian machinery these quartz tiles, quartz slabs, quartz mosaics are now made by numerous companies worldwide. Like any fashion product, these resin quartz products has to keep evolving to remain at the top of the game and because of this these worldwide producers are trying to compete with their direct rivals via novelty, therefore these are made in various thickness, sizes, shapes & colours. The thicknesses of the sparkle tiles can impact the way they are heated; the thicknesses varies considerably, some are 10mm, 12mm or even 20mm (depends on manufacturer & the size of the tile).
There is no real benefit if they are thicker; actually the thinner the better for the underfloor heating systems - these will allow the tiles to heat quicker (in a short period of time).
