While all tile is waterproof, these rates determine how and where it can be used. Impervious means the tile is entirely impenetrable to liquid, and it can also be used outside. Vitreous tiles can also be used outside but may not withstand freeze-thaw cycles the way impervious ones can. Semi-vitreous means only indoor use on low-to-moderate foot trafficked floors, while non-vitreous tiles can only be used on indoor walls.
This refers to grip. Tiles can be slippery when wet, so the best grade is .50 for residential applications and .60 for commercial. You can also increase the grip by selecting a tile with texture or one with many grout lines.
