Fiandre Porcelain Surfaces

Fiandre is a surface that has been designed for use in a variety of architectural applications and is available in a number of colors. To understand what Fiandre is we need to understand how it is created.

Fiandre Porcelain is produced using the most recent techniques for manufacturing Porcelain. The technology used is a technique called sintering. This process is used for multiple materials and you can read more about sintered materials. Other materials are also made using a sintering process although the process and raw materials are different and produce a different material. One such material is Ultracompact Surfaces.

One reason people are interested in Fiandre is because it is versatile and durable. It can be used in many environments and can take the wear and tear of most of them. Some even go as far to say that is is the best of all worlds. The company itself alludes to that in its literature. Notice this quote taken from the Fiandre website:

Fiandre is making its entry into the future, in its "second" 50 years of history, following the natural evolution of this path with the launch of a new generation ceramic, both with the revolution represented by the eco-active materials Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramicâ„¢, which enrich Fiandre slabs with bactericidal and anti-pollution characteristics, and with the creation of the Maximum collection, which focuses on a new extraordinary format, the largest ever made.

You might be wondering how Fiandre Porcelain compares with natural stone surfaces. Natural stone offers some benefits that other materials do not offer. One example is heat resistance and scratch resistance. Of course, natural materials vary on how scratch resistant they are.

Porcelain though is man made and is produced via a specific process. Since it is created to be extremely scratch resistant through intense heat and pressure, Fiandre is an extremely hard material that is scratch resistant.

Fiandre Porcelain Benefits

Fiandre surfaces are becoming more popular because of the advantages they offer. Of course, no material is the best for every person in all situations. Yet, here are some things that attract newcomers to the Fiandre material:

  • Durability
  • Versatility
  • Stain Resistance
  • Temperature Tolerance

Durability

You are no doubt aware that many surfaces are susceptible to scratching. Everyday use for some materials can cause it to scratch from various objects coming in contact with it. With Fiandre the surface is able resist the day in and day out use to which hard surfaces are exposed. The durability of Fiandre Porcelain highlights one reason why is gaining an audience.

Versatility

Like natural stone and other high quality surfaces, Fiandre is very versatile. In fact, it is used for all sorts of surfaces including:

  • Flooring
  • Vertical Surfaces

Some are surprised to find out that Porcelain is even being used for kitchen countertops and other worktops. This should not be a surprise considering it is stain resistant.

Fiandre Resists Stains

Fiandre is non-porous and is stain resistant. Its non-porous surface means liquids stay on the surface and do not penetrate the material. Substances that dry on the surface can be removed rather easily by using the appropriate cleaner.

Various cleaners are made for counteracting specific types of stain-causing substances. Lists of chemicals and/or cleaners that can be used to neutralize stains on Porcelain surfaces can be found on the company's website or elsewhere online.

Fabricating Fiandre Porcelain Surfaces

Fabricators of natural stone surfaces and other engineered materials have amny of the machines that are needed to fabricate Fiandre surfaces. However, there are some specific practices and some special kinds of tools that will make fabricating Fiandre much more efficient. Let's briefly discuss a couple of these points.

Diamond Blades for Fiandre

One of the major tools that a fabricator will need to begin working with Fiandre is a blade made for cutting Porcelain. Fiandre blades are made using special specifications so that they cut very hard materials. They also need to cut quickly and cleanly so they do not slow progress or hurt the finish of the surface.

Even though the proper blade is used, it still must be used properly in order to be effective at the task. Be sure to research the best practices for working with Fiandre Porcelain before beginning a project.

Fiandre Care & Maintenance

As mentioned earlier, Fiandre surfaces are very stain resistant and can be cleaned using the proper cleaners. Researching recommended cleaners for Fiandre or reading about what kinds of cleaners will work is a wise course for anyone thinking of choosing Porcelain for a surface.

It is easy to see why Fiandre is so noticeable as an option for a variety of applications. If you haven't heard about the Fiandre Porcelain material, why not check it out?
