Thin, non-porous and resistant porcelain
For Porcel, the selection of raw materials is very important. Imported directly from France, they are characterised for being translucent, nonporous and resistant.
The excellence of the production process
The production of Porcel’s pieces follows a very demanding production process. After rigorous preparation of the body (shaping and drying), the first firing is prepared. Here, the pieces will be fired around 1000°C. This type of firing gives the pieces an mechanical strength and porosity essential to the next process. The following step is the glazing. In this procedure, the workers select the pieces and remove their dust, so that they can be immersed into glazed suspension. The pieces are thus ready for the second firing at around 1400°C, to obtain the porcelain.
Decoration of porcelain with decal application
After the previous process, the porcelain is ready for decoration. The handmade printing is done through decal application of gold, platinum or ink fillet, applied manually or mechanically.
Following is the firing of the decorated pieces, carried out at different temperatures, depending on the type of product. After this process, the Porcel’s pieces are ready to be packaged and dispatched.
