Visitors to this year's Cersaie, the world's leading ceramic tile exhibition, would have been astounded at the huge increase in presentation of Porcelain tile.

What exactly is Porcelain? Well it consists of a spray dried body of selected clays, kaolinitic minerals, quartz and feldspar, shaped by dry pressing to form a ceramic material that is then fired at temperatures up to 1250oC.

A key element is water absorption that is below 0.5%. Modern Porcelain tile is produced in sizes that range from 10x10cms through to 40x40cms and large 60x60cms and 60x120cms formats that are used to clad exteriors of commercial facades.

New chromatic and decorative effects have been created by experimenting with innovative processes that embellish the expressive potential of Porcelain Stoneware. As a result the new `Porcelain' bears a striking resemblance to natural stones, marble, granite and porphyry. Like mosaic, Porcelain is a product of the moment.

Tiling Example
Porcelain is perfect for embellishment by use of feature strips. It's an ideal material for creation of dynamic waterjet technology designs.
