It is a type of ceramic tile that excels with its technical and aesthetic characteristics.
The standard EN 14411, published in October 2012, provided the porcelain stoneware definition: “fully vitrified tile with water absorption coefficient less than or equal to a mass fraction of 0.5%, belonging to groups AIa and BIa”. Consequently, only the products belonging to the Bla group with ≤ 0.5% water absorption can be classified as porcelain stoneware.
This characteristic guarantees excellent resistance to thermal fluctuations, to wear over time and to chemical products and confers compactness to the tiles.
Today porcelain stoneware represents the type of tiles that are most sold.
