Ceramic work surfaces are a good choice for someone who loves a modern style with a minimalist look and prefers a fully natural material with its unique beauty and pattern. The wide range of colours and manmade technical properties of ceramic provides unlimited options for furnishing the kitchen, making it suitable for those who like pure colours. And due to its elegance and timeless beauty, its perfect for a person who longs for exceptional luxury – this material is undoubtedly unique both to the eye and to the touch.
Yet another reason for the increasing popularity of this material is that ceramic combines a beautiful, natural look and feel with exceptionally practical properties, and is very hygienic and relatively lightweight due to its limited thickness.
Although the characteristics vary slightly depending on the colour, ceramic can generally be characterised as follows:
- Scratch resistance – ceramics satin + + + + + + ( excellent )
- Heat resistance – ceramics satin + + + + + ( very good )
- Stain resistance – ceramics satin + + + + + + ( excellent )
Ceramics are available only in a satin (matt or brushed) finish. They are man-made from natural materials by combining intense heat and pressure to bond a powdered mixture of sand, clay and natural pigments to form the most heat and scratch resistant worktop surface currently available.
Ceramics are fine-grained in structure and generally speaking have a very constant colour. However, as it is made from natural raw materials, colour and structural variations compared to samples, can never be ruled out.
Pinnacle Interior Products are able to offer more than 30 colours in slab sizes at 3.6m x 1.2m available in ceramic, including several series with a unique finish, such as metallic, rust or concrete.
In comparison to granite and quartz, ceramics are susceptible to damage from impact or point loads. This is relevant mainly for transport. However, care should also be taken with pointed and/or heavy objects that could drop onto the surface.
