Porcelain is a man made material. People are probably most familiar with flooring tiles. Manufacturers have developed porcelain slabs (approximately 59 “ X 119”). These slabs are very thin (about 6 mm). They can be used for wall cladding, flooring and fireplace surrounds. The material is almost waterproof, meaning dirt stays on the surface and does not penetrate into the material. There are specialty cleaning products available to keep surface clean.
Select Granite carries many different manufacturers of porcelain including Maxfine, Fiandre and Laminam.
