WHAT IS PORCELAIN TILE?
Porcelain tile is a type of compact paste tile that is achieved by pressing substances such as clay, sand, minerals or gravel. It is baked in the oven at a temperature between 1200-1400Cº until it reaches a non-porous vitrification layer that makes it waterproof.
WHAT ADVANTAGES DOES IT OFFER US?
Porcelain tile offers countless advantages over other types of floors and here, we detail some of them.
1. Impermeability. As we have already mentioned, porcelain tile has a non-porous layer that makes it waterproof, which means that it has zero water absorption and, therefore, shows better resistance to weather conditions. That is why this type of flooring is suitable for being placed both outdoors and indoors, including kitchens and bathrooms.
2. Durability and resistance. It is a hard material with high resistance to the passage of time, bumps and scratches. This is why it is a highly suitable material for large surfaces with high traffic of people; hospitals, shopping malls, hotels, etc.
3. Versatility. Thanks to the characteristics of this material, large format and thin thickness pieces can be manufactured. In addition, it is a highly moldable material and ideal for creating pieces that imitate other materials such as wood, cement or marble, which allows you to place what you like best with the advantages of porcelain.
4. Easy maintenance. Being resistant to stains and acids, cleaning is very simple and practical.
