Porcelain stoneware does not absorb water. Cotto-effect ceramic can therefore be installed without fear of problems in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in a spa or even in a swimming-pool!
In contrast to cotto, which is relatively wear and scratch-resistant, porcelain stoneware is one of the materials that offers the best performance in terms of scratch resistance.
Porcelain stoneware is a vitrified material with practically no porosity, which is resistant to virtually all attacks from chemicals: the stains do not penetrate, they remain on the surface and, even if they dry, they are easy to clean.
Cotto-effect ceramic is completely resistant to frost and to adverse weather conditions and can be easily installed outdoors. However, it would be wise to select the most suitable product for the destination use on the basis of the anti-slip features, thickness and installation technique.
Ceramic is an extremely resistant inert material that does not undergo changes or deterioration over time.
Traditional cotto can be subject to cracks and slitting: if installed expertly and in the proper fashion, cotto-effect ceramic does not present problems of the kind.
Contrary to traditional cotto, the cotto-effect porcelain stoneware does not require any surface treatment.
The items are produced in accordance with an environmentally friendly production procedure and in complete compliance with a certified environmental management system. Novoceram endeavors to constantly better its system in order to reduce, day by day, the impact on the environment.
