    What is the secret of Calacatta? Why this marble is so popular? How many kinds of Calacatta (or Calacata) marble exist?          Calacatta marble is a distinctive white Italian marble with gray and gold veining.Marble Calacatta takes name from the localities in Carrara (Calacatta, Calagio e Calocara) and there only 5 quarries located in this small area that give marble named Calacatta. The main characteristic of this marble is pure white microcrystalline structure with graphic veining of all shades of grey and gold colors. Technically it is high density marble, very hard, with very law absorbtion coefficient, law flexibility and others very highly appreciated by engineers characteristics. But to me the main value of this marble is its uniqueness, history and prestige. Nowadays most of high end design projects bare inside some Calacatta. And  personally I don’t think it’s only the history of this marble used by Michelangelo, Canova and most of artists, but the fact that it’s warm white background and all shades of grey and gold colors match most of modern colors and designs - from minimal to very extravagant and striking effects.    Available as marble slabs and marble tile in both honed and polished finishes, this elegant natural stone is the perfect choice to create stunning marble countertops, marble kitchen islands, marble floors and backsplashes.

  • The Difference Between Sintered Stone and Porcelain
    The Difference Between Sintered Stone and Porcelain
    • August 01, 2023

    Sintered Stone vs Porcelain Slabs Like porcelain, sintered stone can be used for multiple surfaces in building architecture, home interiors and commercial design. Sintered stone is used for cladding, flooring, building facades, and residential and business countertops and work surfaces. Sintered stone and porcelain are both made by "sintering" raw materials. The environments in which porcelains and sintered stones can be installed are similar. Since they are both very hard materials, specific tools are required for cutting them. A lot of people think both materials is the same, they have some similarities in common, yes but they are different. Sintered Stone slabs is not the same as porcelain slabs. Here are some of the differences between sintered stone and porcelain:Raw Materials :Both use different raw materials, thus the end result is different.- Porcelain makes use of raw materials like clay, silica, feldspar, and flint.- Sintered Stone raw material is:  Minerals from Granite, Quartz and feldspar which give the product its hardness and strength Minirals from glass & silica to provide chemical stability Natural Oxides that offer chromatic propertiesForces level used during processing - Porcelain is manufactured in a high pressure environment. This tension within porcelain can make it susceptible to chipping and more importantly, cracks. - Sintered stone can handle rapid temperature changes, whether it’s a hot pot fresh off the stoveThickness: Sintered Stone minimum of 6mm while Porcelain 8-10mm. (ultrathin is strength of Sintered Stone)Size : Sintered Stone can be as big as 1600x3200 and lightweight . Porcelain Slab, biggest is 900x1800mm. Printing: porcelain is printed on top while sintered stone is not. What this means is that porcelain products can be produced in a myriad of patterns, however, those patterns only appear on the surface of the material. The term “through-body”(full bofy) is often used to indicate whether the color and/or pattern go through the entire thickness of the slab.Xiamen Excellent Stone supplys a full-body sintered stone where patterns are consistent throughout the slab no matter which way, or how many times you cut it.Consistent, uniform color throughout the whole slab can be achieved by the mineral/pigment mix, while through-body patterning is much more difficult, as replicating veining or striping is harder to do during the production process. Xiamen Excellent Stone sintered stone has the process down to a science; we can create book-matched, through-body veined slabs.     Water-resistant: Porcelain features a less porous structure with about 0.5% water absorption. In contrast, Sintered Stone has a non-porous structure has only 0.02% for being impenetrable.Production: Sintered Stone has higher production standard, making it harder and denser. it reaches 7-8 on the Mohs scale (hardest is level 10) As a result, the sintered stone slab can effectively resist abrasions, s...
