Basic Information About Porcelain Pavers
Porcelain Pavers Long Island, Gappsi is a supplier and installer of Porcelain pavers. Our showroom displays very unique design patterns of porcelain pavers and products. Porcelain paver manufacturing has evolved over the past 10 years as technology allows to make porcelain pavers and products more realistic and versatile. Porcelain has been manufactured for many decades, but mostly for indoor walls and floor tiles. It has also been used for outdoor applications such as gunite waterline pool tiles, which are the most affected by weather situation and chemicals that are in the pool water. Porcelain Pavers are manufactured at ¾ of an inch thick for pedestrian traffic applications such as patios and walkways, and at 1-¼ inch thick for vehicular traffic applications such as driveways and commercial parking areas. To consumers that are looking into pavers for their pool patios, porcelain pavers and products may appear to be the newest on the market, but porcelain production is one of the oldest processes known to man. Hard-paste or “true” porcelain originated in China from 600-900 A.D and it has been evolving ever since. Many techniques and raw materials have been tested and used over the centuries to produce better quality porcelain pottery and later on tiles and pavers. In today’s porcelain manufacturing, the primary components of porcelain are clay and feldspar, a mineral comprising mostly aluminum silicate, and flint, a type of hard quartz, that when fired at 2650 F, all water gets extracted from the paver body creating an extremely hard body and vitrified structure. Porcelain pavers are perfect in every way. They are durable to weather conditions, they are slip-resistant, they are perfect in thickness, their color does not fade, and they do not stain. Moss and mildew does not grow over them either, even if they are installed in a damp area and their surface doesn’t wear. And their color patterns and textures are unlimited to anyone’s imagination. For the right amount of square footage, you can customize them in any design and color. Porcelain pavers will be the future of all outdoor and indoor flooring projects.
