PORCELAIN IS ...
a manufactured ceramic material. It’s primarily made from a natural clay called kaolinite as well as other minerals which are fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures. The result is ultrastrong and durable porcelain. Glazes and colors can be added to achieve various effects such as a high-shine or a natural stone pattern.
7 REASONS TO CHOOSE PORCELAIN
1. VERSATILE AND BEAUTIFUL.
Porcelain colors and patterns are seemingly endless. It can effortlessly mimic natural stone or have a look entirely of its own.
2. SUPERBLY HEAT RESISTANT.
Forged in fire, porcelain can take the heat which makes a perfect choice for busy kitchens.
3. ANTIMICROBIAL SUPERSTAR.
Because porcelain is non-porous, it’s an excellent surface for kitchens and bathrooms. Bacteria can’t penetrate its surface and it’s easily cleaned with mild soap or our Stone Defender disinfectant cleaner. For this reason, porcelain is also highly stain resistant.
4. EXCELLENT FADE RESISTANCE.
UV light will not fade or discolor porcelain which is sometimes a worry with some natural and manufactured stones. Feel free to confidently place porcelain in direct sunlight.
5. NO GROUT.
Pocelain offers a delightfully smooth, grout-free finish as compared to tile. With no grout to scrub, it's virtually maintenance free and always looks great.
6. EDGE CAN BE MITERED.
While the patterns on porcelain’s surface do not run through the slab, edges can be mitered for a beautiful, consistent look.
7. HARD AND DURABLE.
Porcelain’s hardness ensures it performs very well in busy, high-use areas of your home. Read more about the pros of porcelain.

The Mohs Hardness Scale is used to measure the hardness of minerals, ranking from 1 (softest) to 10 (hardest). Porcelain averages a 7 on the Mohs scale which makes it akin to quartz.
The kaolin clay used to make porcelain derives its name from Gaoling, a small village in China that’s been producing ceramics for over 2,000 years.
