Whatever type of tile you produce – monoporosa, monocottura, gres porcellanato or porcelain – it’s essential to have raw materials with the right properties for each stage of manufacture, whether grinding, pressing or firing. By working closely with you, we provide the optimum combination of body raw materials to perfectly meet your needs.

Minerals for body

Raw material selection is not only determined by the end product type, but also the properties required during the key stages of manufacture.

We work with our customers to understand their goals before developing an optimum combination of body raw materials, including:

  • Plastic minerals
  • Quartz
  • Fluxes
  • Additives and colourants
  • Prepared bodies

Some of the key attributes of our products include:

  • Low colouring oxides for improved whiteness and aesthetics
  • Superior green and fired strength for improved production yields
  • Controlled thermal properties to reduce pyroplastic deformation
