When it comes to porcelain paving slabs, there are a lot of well-known benefits that set them aside from natural stone paving. Porcelain tiles are easy to clean, low maintenance as well as water, stain and slip-resistant. But is porcelain paving durable?
The definition of ‘durable’ is being able to withstand excessive pressure, wear or damage. So the question is, how well does porcelain paving fit this definition?
Porcelain paving slabs are manufactured to demonstrate extreme levels of strength with longevity in mind for the product.
All of our porcelain paving is made with clay and other elements such as quartz, feldspar and silica which is then heated at very high temperatures to create a durable glass substrate throughout the body of the tile.
This process is known as vitrification and means that the end product showcases incredible strength and is non-porous; it will generally absorb less than 0.05% of surface water.
Vitrification also provides porcelain paving slabs with a sturdy structure that is resistant to all kinds of damage that can occur from heavy footfall, changing weather conditions, and unprecedented accidents.
Porcelain paving can endure a significant amount of force and still remain intact; they are even resistant to denting, chipping and cracking.
