Introduction of Granito Ceramico Mirage

Ceramic Granite

Ceramic materials can be divided into various families according to the production processes. The type with the best technical features is porcelain stoneware, of which Ceramic Granite is the most advanced form.

Ceramic Granite is made exclusive of carefully selected natural raw materials: feldspars, quartz, noble clays and other minerals, which create the different colourings.

The material is formed by dry-pressing, followed by firing in roller kilns (at temperatures of over 1200°C). Using an exclusive powder mixing process (protected by European patents), a veining throughout the entire slab thickness is obtained. In addition to this veining the slab is also often enhanced by a special grainy effect, which highlights its aesthetic value.

Surface finishes

The surface can be worked during or at the end of the cycle, resulting in various finishes which, thanks to the different degrees of light refraction make it possible to obtain orginal finishes and effects.

OP - Unpolished

PREL - Green-honed

LEV - Polished

LAPP - Lapped

STRUT - Structured

Sizes

The standard size available, in nominal dimensions, are the following:

30 x 60cm - 12" x 24"

40 x 60cm - 16" x 24"

60 x 60cm - 24" x 24"

60 x 120cm - 24" x 48"

125 x 178 x 3cm - 49" x 70" x 1¼"

Special size products can be supplied on request.

Thicknesses

From 8 to 30mm.

Microorganisms cannot grow on Ceramic Granite. It is easy to clean thanks to the high level of surace energy and the absence of hysteresis (it is totally free of fluorine), which makes it difficult for the dirt particles to bond together physically or to become charged and attack the slabs. There has even been a self-cleaning effect noted in Ceramic Granite used for walls in areas with good wind conditions. Thanks to these features, Ceramic Granite has proved to be particularly suitable for facade coverings.
