The ceramic industry is undoubtedly the oldest of humanity, in addition to its classic use in crafts and art, there is a ceramic manufacturing that covers more practical uses such as flooring or cladding, a case that concerns us, whose industrial process is continuous. and more complex.

The manufacturing criteria, precisely in these ceramic products, are so broad that they require a standard to be able to classify them and thus facilitate trade, provide confidence to consumers and improve their quality. This is how the EN 14411 standard was born, by which any ceramic tile is classified.

Due to its high technical performance, the most valued porcelain stoneware is the one that is manufactured by dry pressing and with a water absorption capacity of less than or equal to 0.5%, it is the one that belongs to the BIa group, the same one that is supplied by Matimex. Its raw materials, mainly clays, although it also contains sand, feldspar, kaolin and pigments, are subjected to temperatures of 1,300 °C. Its firing is at such a high temperature so that vitrification occurs, and the product is harder and waterproof.
