About PLANE Porcelain Surfaces

PLANE Porcelain is designed and created for multiple uses. The material is extremely versatility and durable. Why is PLANE growing in popularity? What should you know before working with Porcelain? How is PLANE cared for? We will answer those questions in this article.

PLANE Porcelain Surfaces

PLANE is designed for use in a variety of architectural applications. Because of its durability and color selection, there are a number of applications in which it can be used.

What is PLANE

To understand what PLANE is we need to understand how it is created. PLANE surfaces are produced using a process called sintering. Sintering is a process used for other materials as well. As a result, there are multiple sintered materials. For example, Ultracompact Surfaces are sintered materials too.

PLANE Porcelain Surfaces are very intriguing to those that have not yet heard about Porcelain surfaces. Why is that the case? One reason people are interested in PLANE is because it offers benefits of both natural and engineered surfaces. Some even go as far to say that Porcelain is the best of all worlds. Notice this quote taken from the PLANE website:

With features of engineered porcelain, including amazing flexibility, and is crack resistant, mold resistant, heat and frost proof, with no artificial binders and no VOC emissions.

PLANE Color Selection

PLANE Porcelain surfaces are available in a number colors. No matter what design style your project is using, there is a color that coordinates with it. The following is a list of the colors available in PLANE:

  • WHITE SAND PLANE
  • CALACATTA VENA A B
  • BARDIGLIETTO
  • TRUE BLACK
  • FANTASY GOLD
  • FANTASY BRIGHT
  • SILVER PLANE
  • CRYSTAL VENA
  • AVALANCHE
  • MARFIL VENA
  • PAONAZZETTO VENA
  • TRAVERTINO VENA
  • ZEBRINO MICHELANGELO
  • ARABESCATO VENA A B
  • NAPOLEON VENA
  • TRUE WHITE
  • SAINT LAURENT LIGHT
  • GOLDEN GLAMOUR PLANE
  • CREMINO
  • CALACATTA VENA CLASSICO
  • ZEBRINO BLUETTE
  • COPPER PLANE
  • EXTRA VENA
  • CALACATTA ORO
  • WHITE PLANE
  • BLACK PLANE
  • DARK VENA
  • FANTASY CLOUD
  • BIANCO CARRARA
  • SAINT LAURENT DARK
  • STATUARIETTO
  • EXTRA VENA A B

Each color in the group is carefully designed to coordinate with colors used in today's popular design styles. But the colors are not the only reason people are trying PLANE Porcelain. Another reason is its durability.

You might be wondering how PLANE 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 based on the environment in which they formed. PLANE on the other hand is produced in a controlled manner and is man made. Additionally, it is created using intense heat and pressure. The result is an extremely hard material that is not easily scratched.

Benefits of PLANE

PLANE surfaces are becoming popular because of the advantages they offer. All you have to do is compare this material with other materials to find out if it offers what you would consider to be advantages. Of course, no material is the best for every person in all situations. Yet, here are some things that attract newcomers to the PLANE Porcelain:

  • It Is Versatile
  • It Offers Durability
  • It Resists Stains
  • It Is Temperature Tolerant

Versatile & Durable

You are no doubt aware that many surfaces are susceptible to scratching. PLANE is resistant to scratching. This scratch resistance contributes to the durability of PLANE. Because of the durability, it can be used in a number of applications including; wall cladding, flooring, and even facades.

Resistant to Stains

PLANE is non-porous and is highly stain resistant. Its non-porous surface means liquids stay on the surface and do not penetrate the material. Although substances can dry on PLANE surfaces, they can be removed rather easily by using the appropriate cleaner. Various cleaners are made for counteracting stain-causing substances. A list of chemicals and/or cleaners that can be used to neutralize stains on the surface of PLANE is no doubt available on the company's website.

Fabricating PLANE Porcelain Surfaces

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

Diamond Blades for PLANE

One thing fabricators need to begin working with PLANE is a good PLANE Porcelain blade. PLANE blades are made using specifications that allow them to cut very hard materials like Porcelain. They also need to cut quick and clean 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. PLANE has, no doubt, published best practices to assist fabricators with adjusting to working with this material.

PLANE Care & Maintenance

As mentioned earlier, PLANE surfaces are very stain resistant and can be cleaned using a variety of cleaners. Each cleaner that can be used for a specific type of stain or discoloration can be matched up to the substance on the surface. Some types of cleaners that an be used on PLANE include acids, alkaline cleaners, solvents, and oxidants. All of these cleaner types are acceptable for use on PLANE Each attacks a different type of stain.

It is easy to see why PLANE is so noticeable as an option for various design applications. If you haven't heard about the PLANE Porcelain material, you may want to head over to their website to learn more?
