Large-format porcelain is an ultra-lux, high-performance material made from a formula of natural minerals and cutting-edge technology. Much like a mined diamond, porcelain is compressed under extreme pressure, heated at high temperatures, then printed with various enamels. It becomes an innovative material characterized by its durability and beauty.

Have the Marble Look
Porcelain replicates any look, whether marble, wood, metal, or patterns by digitizing the most beautiful photographs and printing it directly on the porcelain. Porcelain encapsulates the smoothness, durability, and natural veining of marble without the high maintenance.
Porcelain’s non-porous surface is inhospitable to the growth of bacteria and other microbes such as mold. The hygienic benefits and low maintenance make porcelain perfect for areas of high traffic and damp spaces. Porcelain does not require a sealant like many other natural surfaces.
While grout lines and unsightly seams are never non-existent, the size of large-format porcelain (5’x10′) covers a substantial area to allow for fewer connections between slabs.
U.S. Green Building Council recognizes porcelain as an environmentally friendly product. Porcelain is a man-made material that promotes sustainability and is not mined from mountains, unlike granite or marble.
Placing hot cookware on the surface will not scorch or damage the porcelain.
Porcelain is resistant to ultraviolet light. It does not contain any resins and will not yellow over time. It’s perfect outdoors since it does not fade in the sunlight. Our adhesives also UV resistant.
THERMAL SHOCK RESISTANT
Porcelain is heat- and frost-tolerant; it works well outside in the cold weather. Rapid temperature changes will not crack the porcelain.
