WHY ITALIAN PORCELAIN ?
Italian porcelain is manufactured to the highest quality standard and has a more realistic surface, mimicking natural stone perfectly, whilst offering reduced maintenance and increase split resistance and its superior manufacture makes it easier to cut than all other porcelain products on the market.
We use the latest technologies in all our production plants, all of which are Sacmi machinery (sacmi is the number one in world for production line machinery and technology)
We source the finest raw materials from specific quarries from around the world to give best final result in quality of finish, for better durability meaning greater longevity of use, greater consistency from batch to batch as well as the latest high-definition inkjet printers for more defined realistic graphic design.
Our printers use minimum tri-colour heads to enable a wider spectrum of graphic variance, double most other products available in the UK, and refined attention detail for more realistic results. We have invested in longer than average Kilns for our production, this enabling us to manage closer and better the overall result of each product, this is achieved by gradually firing the tile over a longer period between temperatures of 1000 to 1300 degrees C, building the temperature up gradually and then a longer cooling down process meaning thus resulting in less stress on the product, meaning no bowing and less brittle than our competitors.
The production processes we use are above the industry norm, this helps us ensure our products have greater density than the average product in the market, meaning greater strength and less subject to wear under heavy foot traffic environments.
There will always be colour variations between batches, ensure you order enough to complete your project from one batch, never mix batches, allowing additional material for cuts and wastage.
Always keep a record of the batch code of the porcelain you have collected or had delivered, just in case future stock is required. The batch code is printed on the side of packaging boxes covering the porcelain paving products.
Please note the shade of the final product could differ slightly compared to the sample you may receive due to slight batch variation.
