Advantages of porcelain tiles stoneware

Why choose porcelain stoneware

Porcelain stoneware is a material with extraordinary technical and performance
characteristics that make it highly safe, hygienic, easy to clean and maintain and highly resistant to scratches, bending and high breaking loads. Plus, it is a sustainable and environmentally friendly material.

Thanks to their extraordinary aesthetic versatility, Atlas Plan porcelain stoneware slabs are the ideal solution for the design of any type of environment in residential, commercial and public architecture, both indoors and outdoors.

A unique, seamless material that keeps unchanged over time

Porcelain stoneware is compact

Porcelain stoneware has compact, non-porous surfaces. This characteristic makes the material highly safe, hygienic and ideal for food contact.

Safe and resistant to high temperatures and thermal sudden changes

Porcelain stoneware slabs are impervious to toxic or irritating substances and withstand high temperatures and thermal shocks.

Easy to clean and maintain

Porcelain stoneware surfaces are easy to maintain: they do not retain dirt and are easily cleaned with a damp cloth and warm water, without the use of impregnating agents, waxes or special polishing.

Zero VOC, PVC and formaldehyde

The porcelain stoneware slabs do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are potentially toxic to man and the environment. Furthermore, they do not contain formaldehyde, one of the most common pollutants in home interiors, and are free of PVC, plastics or petroleum derivatives.

Zero allergens and zero bacteria risk

Porcelain stoneware slabs are impervioustomites, bacteria, fungi, mold and other irritants. They are therefore the ideal solution when designing environments that require very high levels of hygiene.

Resistant to water, ice and thermal sudden changes

Porcelain stoneware is not afraid of moisture and does not rot, making it the safest solution in frequently humid areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, balconies, porches, patios, driveways, bathtubs and swimming pools. It withstands even the lowest temperatureswithout the risk of cracks, fissures or material detachment. In addition, porcelain stoneware slabs do not bend or break as a result of temperature changes and can therefore be used in applications characterized by strong atmospheric exposure, such as the exterior walls of buildings or ventilated facades.

Frost and heat resistant

Porcelain stoneware contains no plastic or organic substances of any kind and is inert when subjected to high temperatures. It is therefore in no way combustible or flammable and cannot be damaged by burning cigarettes, embers, hot liquids or flames. Porcelain stoneware slabs are non-flammable, so they do not burn and, in the event of a fire, they do not produce smoke nor release toxic substances, reducing the spread of flames and thus facilitating evacuation and extinguishing operations.

NSF - Suitability for food contact

NSF - Suitability for food contact

Porcelain stoneware is resistant

Porcelain stoneware has excellent strength and surface hardness characteristics that make the surfaces resistant to wear,scratches and almost all physical and mechanical stresses.

Maximum durability, wherever used

Porcelain stoneware lasts a long time in any type of application, both indoors and outdoors.


The hardness of the surface makes porcelain stoneware slabs resistant to scratches and everyday wear. They are therefore particularly suitable for the design of intensively used spaces such as kitchen countertops and bathrooms, as well as environments in the Ho.Re.Ca. sector such as coffee bars and restaurants.

Porcelain stoneware is chemically and physically inert

The chemical-physical stability of porcelain stoneware makes it a material resistant to chemicals, not prone to color changes.

Unalterable surfaces

Atlas Plan porcelain stoneware surfaces are resistant to chemicals and color changes.

Resistant to UV rays

Porcelain stoneware surfaces do not fade or change color even when permanently exposed to direct sunlight or polluting atmospheric agents. Thus, they are particularly suitable in outdoor applications.

Resistant to stains, chemicals and acids

The perfect sintering and very low level of surface absorption make porcelain stoneware slabs impervious to liquids, chemical agents or detergents and acidic substances.
