Materials from which the bathrooms will be made "convenience" are very important in the process of operation. In order not to get confused in these issues, we will consider the features of the materials, and then we will weigh the pros and cons. And we can make a wise decision!
Faience and porcelain as synonyms, have something in common,But next to this also have differences. If we consider the production method, then it is identical for these two materials. As raw materials for faience is white clay - kaolin, and for porcelain, in addition to white clay, quartz and feldspar are also used. The only difference is that different proportions of raw materials are taken. Firing in the production of porcelain is carried out at higher temperatures. If you do not comply with the firing temperature, then you can face undesirable consequences: product destruction, reduction in strength, deformation.
Consider porcelain for sanitary ware. First porcelain is mentioned in China, it was received in 620. His production of debt was kept secret, only in 1708 they received European porcelain. Porcelain itself is made of high-quality clay, the structure is impenetrable. Porcelain is a dense material, and also high-strength. Porcelain is a smoother material, and much harder than faience. When used with such plumbing there are no problems. It is very easy to remove dirt from the surface, this will please every mistress, because the cleaning time will noticeably decrease. Also, the structure does not absorb the stench, which can not but rejoice.
Let's move on to faience, this material in its own waystructure is porous. Therefore, the surface must be covered with a special glaze. If the products are not covered with glaze, then the material has properties to absorb moisture and remove contamination from such surfaces of sanitary ware will be labor-intensive processes. If the coating is present, then the problem is solved. But all the same to the porcelain sanitary ware, the quality of faience is not enough. Due to the porosity of the product can quickly lose its presentation, and plumbing will resemble a "sieve", although this will not affect the practical properties, but pleasing to the eye is the "sieve" will no longer be! Also, when choosing sanitary ware, price plays an important role. Porcelain in this case is more expensive! Do not forget about one more factor: buying plumbing from a large untwisted company, we will just overpay for the brand, not for the quality of the material.
Sometimes it is difficult for a young family to fork outexpensive plumbing, it is worth to share advice, domestic production of porcelain plumbing, may cost several times less than foreign-made faience. Remember this, because you save a penny a ruble! With the naked eye, an ordinary person can not tell a faience plumber from porcelain. After all, the products are applied a special coating, it is applied with a thin layer, under which the basic material of sanitary ware is hiding. If only look at the fracture of the product, the faience is much darker than porcelain. But no one will crumble the toilet to see what material it is made of. If the home budget allows you to buy china, then do not hesitate, it's worth it! Know what choice is, only yours! Rely not only on appearance, but also on the quality of products. As they say, everything is new, it looks good, but you have to look after this new one in order to keep a good look. And the easier care, the less worries!
