Porcelains

Porcelain is a ceramic material, traditionally white. It’s compact, fragile, tough, translucent, waterproof, with low elasticity and highly resistant to chemical attack and thermal shock. Porcelain is used to manufacture various products such as tableware, lamps, sculptures, ornamental and decorative elements. For industrial applications (insulators, electroporcelains) please visit our catalogue of Technical Ceramics. Over the years, and thanks to our R&D department, we have developed excellent whiteness porcelain, as well as optimal glazes for these porcelains. We offer POR-03C-AT, a porcelain slip casting with good plasticity. The POR-SW17P-AT, served in spray dried powder, very white and excellent for applications such as Photoceramics. In plastic mass we offer PORCELAIN-MP.

Stoneware

Earthenware is mainly composed by clays, quartz, feldspar. Their main features are its strength and its low water absorption, once it’s fired at the corresponding vitreous sintering temperature. Firing temperature of our stoneware bodies is between 1200°C and 1300°C, depending on the composition of each product.

We offer different qualities, according to colour and way of working it (Throwing, modelling, pressing, extruding) and the temperature.

We have at your disposal low firing temperature stoneware (VITREOGRES-AT o VITREOGRES-MP), medium firing temperature (GRES-ALBA-AT), or high firing temperature stoneware like GRES-ART13-AT or GRES-130-MP. Besides, we offer grogged stoneware or refractory bodies.
