Waterproof, incombustible, resistant to abrasions, water, heat and wear , porcelain stoneware is a material of incredible quality. Discover here all the reasons why you should adopt porcelain stoneware now:

Product of a mixture of pure materials such as clay, kaolin and feldspar, porcelain stoneware combines all its strength and multiplies it when fired at high temperature (around 1,200 о C). This results in a hard material with foolproof resistance. Indeed, neither wear, nor shocks, nor chemical and climatic abrasions can overcome a porcelain stoneware tile.
