Porcelain is created when kaolinite-heavy material is formed into slabs or tiles, coated with a pigmented glaze and fired at high temperature to enhance the strength and beauty.
The glazing pigments added during fabrication produce an appearance similar to natural stone with the colors made to look like the veining found in marble, granite and slate. Slabs or tiles can also be manufactured with a solid color throughout for customers that want a more consistent pattern. The variety of colours and patterns that porcelain has to offer is one of the many reasons this material is so desirable.
