What is imitation marble porcelain?


Porcelain or porcelain stoneware is a type of resistant, clean and waterproof ceramic tile, with very low water absorption and high mechanical resistance, therefore, it can be applied to all types of surfaces and spaces.


Why is porcelain better than marble?


Natural marble is highly coveted for its beauty, but unfortunately, as a decoration material, it causes great inconvenience.


Disadvantages of Marble in decoration


The disadvantages of using marble as a decoration and cladding material are:

  • It is a natural material, therefore, susceptible to staining with acid and abrasive products (for example: bleach), due to its chemical sensitivity.
  • It requires a lot of care, therefore, its maintenance must be continuous since it is a natural product that develops a layer (patina) and ages with use.
  • It greatly hinders the removal of stains due to its high porosity index.
  • It has very low resistance which allows it to scratch and scratch too easily, making it impossible to repair.
  • It has a high price compared to other material options.


What advantages does marble imitation porcelain offer?


The main advantages we obtain by decorating or paving with imitation marble porcelain instead of marble are:

Resistance: having a porosity below 0.5% prevents its deterioration or wear against the aggression of any external agent (a lot of traffic, extreme heat and cold, water, snow…) and also facilitates its maintenance, since it allows the use of all kinds of cleaning products, without modifying the appearance of its surface. It also fits perfectly in both outdoor and indoor spaces.
