Porcelain Tile Flooring
Popularized in Europe, large porcelain slabs are revolutionizing the modern world. You get the marble look without the maintenance.
Porcelain combines the strength and durability of a porcelain slab, with sophisticated design and a refined palette. By utilizing innovative technology, we’re able to expand the design potential for both interior and exterior spaces.
Porcelain is a flooring solution made from very dense clay that’s fired at higher temperatures than standard ceramic tile flooring is. Porcelain tile is made from clay, and other natural materials blended together and fired in a furnace. It’s known for being highly uniform in construction and non-porous. This makes it better for spaces with fluctuating temperatures and a more reliable option for radiant heating solutions. Generally, porcelain tile comes in the same thicknesses as ceramic tile, but it’s heavier overall. It is also offered in more shapes and styles than ceramic tile is, which is why some people decide to go with the product.
Benefits of Porcelain Tile
Scratch and abrasion resistant
Resistant to scratching and abrasion due to the hardness of the surface. It is the most scratch resistant surface on the market.
Modern porcelain tiles can convincingly mimic all sorts of traditional materials, such as marble, granite, wood, or even steel.
One of the toughest options available. Hard, dense, and solid, porcelain is resistant to most heavy impact stresses, and can even be used in commercial environments.
Resistance to liquids
The density of porcelain makes it more resistant to liquid penetration than other, more porous types of ceramic. This advantage can be increased through the application of a melted glass glaze.
Another advantage of porcelain flooring is natural stain resistance. Being able to repel liquid penetration means that staining agents can’t easily penetrate down through the material dimensionally.
If properly installed and maintained, porcelain has the ability to last for decades of recommended use. This cuts down on the periodic cost of removal and replacement.
