For PORCEL the selection of materials is important, each piece is designed, shaped and moulded according to strict standards of accuracy. Our porcelain is known to be translucent, non-porous, strong, scratch resistant, microwave and dishwasher resistant.
. Translucent: is a quality of which the body/piece lets the light go through and difuses it, true porcelain, combined with a certain body thickness, has this feature.
. Non-porous: PORCEL porcelain is fired at 1400ºC which allows a fusion of all particles, this process gives a soft and perfect finish to the porcelain, without porous, cracks or water absorption.
. Strength: PORCEL porcelain has greater strength than any other kinds of china such as earthenware or sand stoneware. Our porcelain goes under periodic tests in order to keep the resistance impact and chipping controlled.
. Scratch Resistance: Porcel plates, fired at 1400ºC have high resistance to usage and “knife scratch”, we conduct testes to our products to assure this feature and offer guarantees to our clients.
. Microwave and Dishwasher Resistance: to be resistant to the microwave porcelain cannot absorb water, has to heat only by induction and needs to have a low breakage risk. Pieces with gold or platinum decorations cannot be used on the microwave and dishwasher.
