Porcelain tiles are covered under this Environmental Product Declaration. Glazed porcelain tiles are manufactured in İnönü and Bilecik Plants. Full Body Porcelain tiles are manufactured in Bilecik Plant. Porcelain tiles are primarily made of naturally occurring materials such as clay and pegmatite, but they may also include other raw materials such as silica sand, frit, zircon, zinc and calcite. The compositions of both porcelain tiles are given in the EPD.
Porcelain tiles are made from a blend of fine-grain clays and other minerals to produce a very dense body making tiles highly resistant to moisture, staining and wear. Tiles are pressed under high pressure and fired around 1200° C. Porcelain tiles do not absorb any stain and are resistant to frost and can be applied in both interior and exterior.
