Smartstone + Atlas Plan porcelain for benchtops

Porcelain is a ceramic product that, through a highly technological process, fuses raw materials using intense temperatures and extreme pressure. The result is a permanently hardened, ultra-compact surface that is versatile, non-porous, UV-stable and hygienic. Unlike quartz, porcelain is ideal for outdoor spaces as well as interior applications, such as kitchen benchtops and splashback panels, sinks, tables and bathroom vanities. Atlas Plan porcelain offers a large slab format that makes it a popular choice for vertical applications such as wall panelling and building facades. Atlas Plan porcelain is composed of a blend of approximately 30% clay, 15% quartz and 45% feldspar, with no glues or resins used.

Porcelain is a popular material choice for horizontal surfaces such as kitchen benchtops, in many sought-after styles including perfect marble and natural stone replicas. Being NSF approved, porcelain is the ideal material for contact with foods in residential and commercial kitchens.
