What is porcelain?

Porcelain is a type of ceramic coating made from pressed and fired ceramics with very low porosity. This is its fundamental quality, as its high performance depends to a large extent on it. Porcelain, therefore, is the ideal solution as a coating and/or flooring, both for interior and exterior decoration, given its resistance to frost.

Its main characteristics are:

Its high resistance to abrasion makes it a very durable material, resistant to impact and scratches.

Its porosity is practically null and so is its absorption of liquids.

It is very compact and resistant to sudden changes in temperature.

Its resistance to chemical substances such as cleaning products or the use of acids in workplaces make it unique for floors exposed to this type of aggression.

Minimal maintenance, any neutral soap or detergent is sufficient for cleaning.

Hygienic, since its inert nature and impermeable character allows to prevent humidity, avoiding the development of colonies of germs and fungi.

Non-slip, making it perfect for outdoor areas such as public spaces, workplaces or terraces and gardens.

It is stain resistant so it is a great substitute for some natural materials such as marble that stain easily.

Its colours remain unalterable despite being subject to sudden changes in temperature or exposure to the sun.

It’s easy to apply. It can be cut or perforated according to the decorative needs of each project.

From an aesthetic point of view the porcelain floor is unequalled:

For their colors and designs, covering a wide range of tones and different nuances and effects.

Due to its textures, capable of fusing with the natural and synthetic materials desired and faithfully reproducing woods, stones, marbles, cements…

For their formats, with as many options as there are ideas.

As can be appreciated, there is a whole universe of decorative reliefs taken to their maximum expression in wall and floor coverings capable of creating spaces full of personality, elegance and sophistication to satisfy the most demanding decorative projects.

Due to its versatility and avant-garde designs, porcelain is the coating par excellence.
