Benefits Of Porcelain
These are some of the toughest flooring options available. Hard, dense and solid, porcelain is resistant to most heavy impact stresses, which is why it is commonly used in commercial environments.
The density of porcelain makes it more resistant to liquid penetration than other more porous types of ceramic. This can be increased through the application of a melted glass glaze, which will make any surface it is adhered to completely impervious to water.
Another advantage is that it is naturally stain resistant. Being able to repel liquid penetration means that staining agents cant easily penetrate down through the material dimensionally. When glazed, this effect is even more dramatic, making it nearly impossible to discolor the surface of these tiles.
If properly installed and maintained, porcelain has the ability to last for decades of recommended use. This cuts down the periodic cost of removal and replacement.
