What Is Porcelain Cladding?

Porcelain is a type of strong ceramic material and is often used in pottery, tiles, and sanitary ware making industries. To make porcelain a mix of natural materials including clay is heated in a kiln in temperatures up to 1,400 C (2,600F).

Once finished porcelain comes out much stronger than a ceramic product. This is because porcelain has a higher density and lower moisture than ceramic. During production pores and cavities do not form which gives porcelain its strength, toughness, and translucence.

Porcelain cladding is an exciting new method of giving existing walls a more modern and contemporary appearance. Alternatively, if the wall does not exist yet, then a wall can be built using cheap concrete blocks and faced with porcelain wall cladding. Doing this creates a more artistic finish.

Choosing porcelain cladding is quickly becoming a big trend for both outdoor and indoor walls. Internal projects often use porcelain cladding for room walls, pillars, and fire hearths. Outdoor projects typically include back walls, planters, barbecues, and water features. Porcelain cladding is ideal for indoor or outdoor use and residential or commercial buildings.

Porcelain cladding is easy to handle and install which makes it ideal for all types of projects. It is lightweight, available to install with a range of fixings options, and there is a wide range of finishes and colours to choose from.

Porcelain is man-made using natural materials which gives the porcelain a number of benefits. Here is a quick summary of the main benefits of using porcelain cladding:

• Aesthetically pleasing. Porcelain cladding is versatile and can be given the appearance of any texture, patterns, grains, veins, and colours. This means there is a fantastic choice of designs to create the desired look.
• Hard-wearing. Porcelain is extremely strong and hard-wearing. As it is a durable material it can withstand wear and tear.
• Waterproof. The production process makes porcelain a compact material with low porosity. Thanks to this it absorbs extraordinarily little water which makes it ideal for outdoor use.
• Fireproof. Due to been made at high temperatures, porcelain has fantastic fire resistance.
• Easy to maintain. Porcelain cladding is incredibly low maintenance and easy to clean once installed professionally. It is also amazingly easy to clean.
• Damage resistant. Thanks to its hardiness porcelain cladding can withstand damage from the weather, chemicals, and mould or moss.
• Does not fade. Prolonged exposure to the sun will not cause the cladding to fade. If your cladding is black, then it will still be black in 5 years, 10 years, or more.
