Desirable qualities of Porcelain 

Available as Tiles as well as Slabs

Porcelain can be procured as gigantic slabs as well as portable tiles. Moreover, unlike many natural stone worktops, homeowners can also benefit from the colour and pattern homogeneity of porcelain. Colours and patterns of porcelain worktops are all engineered thus allowing one to find any desired shade, pattern, or texture to complement other features of kitchen work surfaces.

Durable: 

Porcelain worktops are extremely long-lasting. As a result, they are great for busy environments. Porcelain worktops are perceived as environmentally friendly because they are 30% tougher than granite stone. It is also resilient to flaking, etching, and chipping. It thus makes an excellent choice for kitchens of cooking enthusiasts, the food industry, and bathroom worktops, as it can withstand a fair amount of everyday depreciation.

Stain Resistance:

Porcelain worktops are stain-resistant due to their non-porous nature. Porcelain tiles have a low water permeability and hence are extremely immune to moisture and stains. Because of its low moisture absorbance, this worktop material is also a good choice for wet areas like showers.

Drawbacks

Could Decrease Property’s Resale Value

Even though porcelain slabs and fashionable tiles have entered the increasingly popular trend amongst homeowners, they are not accepted as high-end materials the way granite, marble and quartz kitchen counters are. As a result, it may have an impact on the market value of your home. It implies that if you update your home with porcelain slabs or tiles, the resale value will be lower than if you incorporate a granite, marble, or quartz worktop.

Suitable Application

Taj Mahal Porcelain is suitable for a wide range of projects, both indoor and outdoor. They can be used for residential as well as light to moderate commercial projects. A few to name are room flooring, exterior pavings, kitchen worktops, tabletops, breakfast bars, kitchen islands, benchtops, countertops for bathrooms, wall cladding, bathroom flooring, and shower walls, etc.

Cleaning and Maintenance: The polished surface, like any shiny material, is particularly prone to scratching during installation and use, and an additional amount of care should be taken when managing the material. Acids can etch the polished material, so it should be best avoided; lemon-based cleaners, citric juice spills etc.  It is strongly advised to ensure sealing for added protection, such as FILA PD15 or anything similar. To maintain its natural shine, regular cleaning can be done with common household detergents with neutral pH and plenty of warm water. Be wary of solutions that claim no rinsing is required, as detergents should always be thoroughly rinsed from a glossy surface. Non-neutral detergents, solvents, or acid-based products with hydrochloric acid, citric acid, acetic acid, or abrasive components should be prevented.

Composition of Porcelain

Porcelain is made up of china clay also known as kaolinite, feldspar, metal oxides, and silica. All the substances are homogenized under extreme conditions to produce this material. The material is strong and resistant to chips, scratches, stains, and heat.

History of Porcelain used in Ancient times :

Porcelain originated during the Tang dynasty in China but the high-quality porcelain used in modern wares was not developed until the yuan dynasty. The Chinese porcelain floor tile consisted of kaolin and pegmatite, a coarse type of granite. European potters were unaware of porcelain until the import of Chinese wares during the middle ages. Though European potters tried to duplicate the material, the effort was in vain.

During the experimental trials, they created what is known as artificial porcelain by missing clay and ground glass. Efforts continued to develop true porcelain in the year 1707. Two Germans named Ehrenfried Walter von Tschirnhaus and Johann Friedrich Böttger succeeded in finding the true porcelain composition. They used to merge the clay with ground feldspar instead of the ground glass used earlier. This development has inspired people to find more applications of porcelain kitchens and one such application is stunning worktops. 

Care for your Porcelain Tile Kitchen countertop

Cleaning the surface of a porcelain countertop is needed every day. There are some significant cleaning tips that can be practiced for porcelain countertops. Use pH-neutral liquid soaps or detergents to sanitize its surface. This practice will definitely promote the hygienic condition of porcelain slabs. Avoid harsh chemical detergents or formulas and use non-abrasive wipers or cloth in order to avoid scratch marks and loss of the lustrous polish.

Initially soak the cloth in a soap solution and wipe it thoroughly and rinse off the surface with water. Wipe it again and the counter gets clean with the dry microfiber cloth. Avoid moisture to ensure there are no dried watermarks on the surface. Hot water for cleaning and wiping cloth would suffice for the spills on the countertop. Though they possess resistance to citric liquids, it is highly recommended not to spill any of the surfaces of the stone.
