Porcelain stoneware for outdoor use

Few ceramic materials are as resistant and versatile as special outdoor flooring. Careful selection of raw materials, firing at more than 1000 degrees Celsius and a pressing process of 4600 tons guarantee a porcelain stoneware floor for outdoor use that is resistant to harsh weather and versatile in its installation.

Stone wears away, microcement cracks, wood requires maintenance but porcelain stoneware floor for outdoor use remains unchanged over time. If we also add an easy installation that adapts to different surfaces, the result is Xtreme, the optimal porcelain stoneware for outdoor use.

The production process includes a selection of raw materials, white clays, quartz, feldspars, kaolins... which are pressed with a pressure of more than 4,500 tonnes and fired at more than 1,200 ºC for more than 100 minutes before rectifying the finish of each piece. This is the magic potion of these superporcelain stoneware tiles that are resistant to changes in temperature -Xtreme 2.0, from Alcalagres, has an absorption level of <0.1%, which guarantees its resistance to frost -, to de-shading over time, to stains and to chemical aggressions produced by swimming pool salts, acids and chemical agents.

This type of floors for outdoor use is twice as thick as its indoor flooring peers, a power that shields its quality in outdoor environments and allows it to withstand heavy weights. The 20 millimeters thickness of Alcalagres' Xtreme 2.0 enables extremely high breaking load values (≥12.000 N) that guarantee optimum performance in public, high-traffic or residential areas.
