What is soft stone ceramic tile?
Soft stone ceramic tile is virtually the same raw materials as ceramic tile. It is a kind of ceramic tile that is soft and felt like cowhide by adding additives and then firing at high temperatures. Compared with traditional tiles, it is more soft and warm. Soft stone ceramic tile is sintered at 400℃ high temperature with 80% clay and 20% water-soluble additives. Then, it is shaped by changing of the properties of the original soil and the light irradiation. After recovery, it can be reduced to powder through treatment and then become soil. In addition, the light soft stone ceramic tile can reduce the transportation difference of ceramic tile.
What are the advantages of soft stone ceramic tiles?
1. Flexible and Elastic
Soft stone ceramic tile is very soft and elastic, with good wear resistance property. As long as the ground is flat, it won't be scratched easily. Walking on the floor paved with soft ceramic tile is like walking in the grass. It is opposed to the hard and cold features of traditional ceramic tiles.
2. Styles can be presented in a variety of ways.
Soft stone ceramic tile can be designed into a variety of textures and colors according to demand, including wood grain, wood and other series. And, it can be made into concavo-convex, emboss and other artistic effects. It can be reused because it is not made of wood materials. In design, the surface is a great new element for the designer.
3. Energy conservation and environmental protection
Due to the light material of soft stone ceramic tiles, they are easy to be handled so that the transportation cost is reduced. Paving is also very convenient and a lot of manpower is not required.
4. Moisture-proof & Anti-skidding
Soft stone ceramic tiles not only maintain the characteristics of ceramic tiles, but are also moisture-proof and anti-skidding. In the rainy season, when ceramic tiles or glass have water discharge, the soft stone ceramic tiles can keep cool and dry.
5. Convenience for pavement
For paving soft stone ceramic tiles, less manpower is required. Just one or two people can handle it, with good decorative effect. It is very suitable for home decoration, or some large hotels and other tooling, indoor and outdoor decorations, even for some wrapping columns and other personality decorations, meeting different requirements.
Strong water permeability, light weight, flexible, acid and alkali resistance, freeze-thaw resistance, anti-seismic, crack resistance, good compatibility with external insulation system.
Soft stone ceramic tiles completely overcome the ceramic tiles, mosaics and other hazards of easy falling and hurting people. It is especially suitable for the finish materials of external walls of high-rise buildings and external thermal insulation system.
Soft stone ceramic tiles can be shaped at will, which breaks through the limitations of traditional ceramic tiles. They have the ability to integrate all the building materials at all times and in all over the world. Soft stone ceramic tiles can be presented as the natural decorative materials, such as wood, leather, stone, brick, cloth, metal and other textures and colors. And, the decorative textures with distinctive individual colors can also be made according to the designer's conception.
In rebuilding of old walls or renovation of space, the materials can be directly pasted on them without knocking off the original old tiles and mosaics.
Energy conservation and emission reduction
Fuels, such as coal, heavy oil and other highly polluting raw materials are discarded on the production line of soft stone ceramic tiles. Electricity and solar energy are selected to strive for cleanliness and secure sources. No waste water, exhaust gas and dust are discharged in the production process, and all the waste materials can be recycled.
