Porcelain stone is not as absorbent as travertine or non-stick granite in terms of water absorption and adhesion of slurry. Porcelain is the main material of the facades of many old buildings, especially in the tropics, because its light color protects the building from high heat absorption. The weather resistance of this stone is moderately good and considerable, and in some mines, porcelain stone can also compete with travertine and granite.
This stone, like other types of stones, is offered to the market in different qualities, and the whiter the stone, the higher its price.
The cost of processing slab stone production is relatively twice the cost of producing longitudinal (tile) stones. The presence of this factor along with the naturalness as well as the eye-catching and unique appearance of large slab stone makes it more expensive than tile.
