Did you know that most LecicoSA products are made from Vitreous China?
Vitreous China is an enamel coating that is applied to ceramics after they have been fired. The purpose of this coating is to make products:
The word ‘vitreous’ means “glass-like” – and the glaze actually makes products look shiny and reflective. The shiny glaze maintains and strengthens the durability of products. An important feature of Vitreous China is that it is amazing at resisting spills, scrapes and other mishaps. The high-gloss enamel is stain-resistant.
If you want the look of your beautiful sink to last, Vitreous China is the way to go. Glass and porcelain sinks may offer a similar shine and seamless design, but neither can measure up to the durability of Vitreous China.
The fact that Vitreous China is non-porous (not permeable to any outside influences such as air, water, and other kinds of fluids) means that Vitreous China products have sanitary and hygiene properties which are perfect for bathrooms. Its non-porosity also prevents bacteria from entering the surface of ceramic material, and so keeps it from building up.
Thinking of getting a porcelain basin? Porcelain is generally very tough, but it is densely porous which means that it will sometimes absorb other fluids, particularly when wet and exposed for extended periods.
Vitreous China is low maintenance. Its smooth, naturally stain-resistant qualities help Vitreous China products stand the test of time. The high-shine surface stays that way with a simple wipe of a soapy cloth. This is ideal for those who are looking for beautiful design, but don’t want to commit to “needier” finishes, such as copper and cast iron. Perfect for busy singles or families with little ones, you can have the look of luxury without the extra effort it requires.
Vitreous China … the smart choice.
