Porcelain, Ceramic and Vitrified Characteristics:
Porcelain, ceramic and vitrified products are manufactured from naturally occurring aggregates, cement and binders, all of which are subject to colour and texture variation. Variation in colour and dimension may occur between batches of the same stone, although this type of material is relatively consistent in colour tone. Some manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the individual slab sizes whereas others include the pointing allowance in the overall pack coverage and as with all paving materials, dimensional variances may occur. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches. Images may not be a true representation of a particular product size, use or laying pattern. Descriptions provided offer a combination of the manufacturer’s and our own opinion of the product’s features.
Porcelain, Ceramic and Vitrified Description:
Porcelain, ceramic and vitrified paving is a manmade paving material, constructed from naturally occurring kaolin clay materials and minerals such as quartz and feldspar which is then fired at 1200 Celsius to offer an extremely hard-wearing and low-maintenance paving product suited to both indoor and outdoor applications. Its low water absorbancy means it attracts very little residue or algae, but regular care and maintenacnce is requied for surface grime and dirt. Vitrified products are lightly textured to improve slip resistance and the dimensions are more accurate than those seen with natural stone paving.
Porcelain, Ceramic and Vitrified Colours:
The colours of this material are uniform with a subtle, evenly distributed variation. Many of the products offer the same colour palette as its natural stone equivalent without the irregular characteristics found in the natural stone paving material making it especially suited to clean, contemporary design schemes.
What’s the Difference between Porcelain and Ceramic Paving?
The appearance of ceramic and porcelain paving is quite similar, however the manufacture and performance of each varies. The key differences are:
• Porcelain is made from a finer clay than ceramic and is fired at a hotter temperature for a longer period of time. This makes it a harder paving stone
• Porcelain is less porous than ceramic. Lower porosity means less cleaning
• The colour patterns on porcelain are ink printed and penetrate through into the top layers of paving whereas ceramic paving has a colour pattern transfer laser printed onto the surface. This means the porcelain paving performs better against chips or scratches
