Porcelain stoneware

What is Porcelain Stoneware?

Porcelain stoneware is a type of dry-pressed ceramic tile, with very low water absorption and high mechanical resistance.

It can be used on all types of surfaces and spaces, even those with high traffic or delicate ones, such as a swimming pool, the facade of a house or even a pedestrian sidewalk.

The advantage of opting for porcelain stoneware is that we can install it in any space without any doubts regarding its properties.

Porcelain tile flooring is the type of ceramic tile most recent appearance on the market. In addition to low water absorption and mechanical resistance, it can also be manufactured in large formats and with very thin thicknesses.

Porcelain Floors

Porcelain floor is made of porcelain and unlike normal stoneware, it is more resistant and durable. This type of coating is used for both exteriors and interiors, either to form the floor or to cover interior walls and facades.

Currently, porcelain floors offer a very wide variety of textures. You can find smooth and rough tiles, drawing inspiration from natural materials such as cork or achieving a wood effect that will seem authentic.

There are also so-called rectified floors, which are a type of tile that, once they have been manufactured, their edges are trimmed to obtain a straight edge. Rectified porcelain floors are more uniform and have much more precise dimensions than those that are not rectified.

At Oset you can choose from a wide range of attractive and original designs with which to give a personal touch to your home, so you can find pieces with striking geometric motifs and details or matte or glossy finishes.

Characteristics of Porcelain Stoneware

Other characteristics of this material is that it is manufactured in a single firing, so the material is exactly the same on the base as on the surface.

Porcelain stoneware is a compact, non-slip material and, above all, very resistant to water, ice, rain and changes in temperature.

It can also come in a multitude of colors, thicknesses, finishes and formats, and can even imitate a multitude of natural materials (wood, stone, granite or marble) adaptable to practically any aesthetic and style.

Thanks to its versatility, we can make different combinations of porcelain with other materials and use it both indoors and outdoors.

As for cleaning, it is easy to maintain and sanitize and its maintenance is very simple: you can use practically any detergent or disinfectant to clean it.

How to Lay Porcelain Flooring

It is one of the advantages of this type of flooring. Getting your surface to look like the first day is very easy. When you only need to remove dust and small particles of dirt from your porcelain floor, simply use a dry mop to trap them.

If deeper cleaning is required, first sweep with a soft brush. Next, scrub normally, always using a soap with a neutral pH without overdoing it when adding it to the water.

If there is a stubborn stain, a trick is to add a minimal amount of apple cider vinegar to the water. Its slight acidity will eliminate it without damaging the surface.

How to Clean Porcelain Floor

The thin layer installation system with flexible adhesive is the most recommended for porcelain floors.

It is also important that we periodically inspect the pieces already placed while we are in the placement process.

Until setting is complete, placement defects can be touched up or corrected. To do this, the white rubber mallet and suction cups are used.
