The term porcelain was coined from the Italian word ”porcellana” because of its translucent characteristic similar to the cowrie shell. Porcelain was first developed in China and was exported to Europe between the 17th and 18th century. Beautiful jars and other delicate ornaments were made from porcelain, but the discovery of its base material from soft paste to hard past has made porcelain an important industrial commodity. Porcelain is resistant to high temperatures, resistant to abrasions, and is also non-porous, which allows very minimal water absorption. Today, porcelain is an important material for insulation and is popularly used for dental prosthesis and veneers. That is why porcelain tiles are excellent choices for residential and commercial finishing.
Porcelain tiles are durable and require a minimal tile cleaning maintenance programme. They are highly recommended for heavy wear areas in any home or property. What is considered as a heavy-duty material is therefore regularly used in kitchens, hallways, bathrooms and other areas of the home with no compromise in aesthetic appeal. With an emphasis on long-term performance and longevity, porcelain flooring is heat-resistant, frost proof and breathable. These factors mean that porcelain floor tiling is a great option combined with under floor heating as they conduct heat fabulously, adding to energy efficiency.
