Ceramic – Ceramic is a generic word used to describe a group of new materials specially formulated to be extremely hard-wearing (see videos in gallery). A good example is one of the leading brands called Neolith, a Tech Porcelain which is the latest technology in ceramics and the most durable type. One of the key differences is that the ingredients in ceramics are mixed and then extruded, similar to making pasta if anyone is familiar with that.
Neolith is an ultra compact surface where the ingredients are mixed and then pressed. So to refer to this product as ceramic or porcelain is correct but it is slightly different and should be described this way: The product make-up is roughly 40% feldspar, 20% quartz, 25% kaolin, and the rest pigments. Ceramic can be used for the same purposes as granite but is stronger, more heat resistant and is UV stable.
Ceramic is an ideal material for a wide range of purposes such as, but not limited to, the following:
- Kitchen Worktops
- Vanity Tops
- Shower trays
- Indoor & Outdoor Wall cladding
- Fire hearths and surrounds
- Outdoor kitchen/BBQ areas and table tops
