What is a calibrated tile?

Calibrated tiles are sorted to meet a manufacturer’s stated caliber range. These tiles have tighter requirements for dimensional variation than natural tiles but do not have mechanically finished edges. Rectified tiles have edges that have been mechanically finished to achieve a more precise facial dimension.
