What is Porcelain?

Porcelain is a man-made material that is manufactured by compressing clay along with other elements under high heat and pressure. 

Because it is man-made, porcelain comes in a wide variety of finishes and textures and can often mimic other materials.

This combination of aesthetic and design flexibility allows porcelain to be used in a wide variety of applications including flooring, cladding, stairs, bathrooms, pool surrounds, kitchens and many other home architectural applications. 

Why Choose Porcelain?

Porcelain comes in a very wide selection of colours and patterns each offering a customized and clean look with both refined and rough finishes. This makes it an ideal material for those looking to achieve an aesthetic not necessarily available from a natural stone. 

Due to its manufacturing process, porcelain is highly resistant to impact, scratches, and abrasion for use in high-traffic areas and has a very low water absorption quality. It also provides thermal shock resistance against heat, frost and thawing enabling the product to be used both indoors and outdoors in any environment.

One thing to consider though is that porcelain can be chipped or cracked under heavy loads or sudden impact.
