Porcelain is a ceramic material that is compact, anti-slip, highly resistant and has very low water absorption. Therefore, it is an ideal option for wall or floor tiles for different locations such as exteriors, interiors, wet areas, commercial and industrial spaces or as cladding for façades and interior walls.
High-performance technical porcelain and extrafine porcelain
Porcelain is manufactured using a single firing process and is produced with designs and finishes inspired by natural materials such as stone, marble, granite and wood. There are also anti-slip versions for optimal installation as exterior floor tiles.
In order to comply with the high demands of construction and architecture professionals, PORCELANOSA Group’s technical porcelain stoneware, Urbatek, is homogeneous, uniform, ultra resistant and easy to maintain. Its versatility and technical qualities mean that it always remains in optimal condition, even with its most delicate finishes, despite adverse weather conditions or when the area highly transited.
In addition to its excellent resistance as floor tiles for highly-transited locations, porcelain pieces easily tolerate sharp temperature changes. Therefore, they are also highly regarded for cladding buildings, forming part of a ventilated façade or bonded façade system.
XLight extrafine porcelain is ideal as decorative a wall tile for interior spaces due to its low weight, minimal thickness and modular formats that prevent the creation of rubble during construction work.
Only neutral or surfactant soap and clean water are required for the day-to-day cleaning of technical ceramics. In the event of significant stains, commercial degreasing solutions can be applied.
