Ceramic facade

Ceramic slabs – is a modern material for cladding building and construction`s facades. Thanks to its high maintetance characteristics they widely used for granite cladding of different objects:

  • residential complexes and office centers
  • administrative buildings
  • country houses, cottages

The AMTT discovery pocelain fixing system:

  • • Standard system (G1-30.22-clamp at the front)
  • universal system (G1-30.21 / 23 stainless steel. / ALU. Skid-clamp)
  • reinforced mounting system for large-sized panels (P5-50.21)

Ceramic is comparable with a natural stone color in such properties as appearance, but in technical properties exceeds it: wide range of colors, lighter than it etc. One of the advantages of ceramic stoneware ventilated curtain facade systems is no wet processes at facing facade that allows to make at any time of the year without prior preparation of the facade surface.

Advantages of ceramic facade:

  • Max freezeproof up to -50 ° C
  • water resistance (water absorption – 0.05%)
  • Mechanical resistance (Breaking load of up to 450 kg)
  • Acids and alkalis reristance
  • Improved soundproofing
  • Non fading, unigorm color on large surfaces
  • Wide range of colors and patterns
  • Non flaming Group
  • Easy handling and assembling
  • Reliability and safety of the structure
  • 50 years guarantee

The resistance of ceramic depends on the surface type:  glazed or unglazed. Unglazed ceramic is tested on surface hardness on the Mohs scale (MOHS) as natural stone. If the ceramic has a hardness of more than 7 units, it means that it is resistant to the main abrasion – sand (sand  it’s quartz grains having a Mohs hardness of 7 units.). Matte ceramic usually has a hardness of 8 units, and 5-6 units polished ceramic.

Glazed ceramic, the surface of which is covered with a layer of glaze is tested as well as ceramic tiles – on PEI method. According to this classification, the materials are divided into five classes. From the I-st ​​to the IIId class –are materials that are recommended for using within the living quarters. The IVth, and especially, the Vth class –are materials that can be used in areas with intensive exploitation. Glazed ceramic can have resistance class of PEI II – PEI V, but herewith it is cold-resistant and more durable. Ceramic has almost zero water absorption and, as a consequence is good frost resistance, so it is successfully used during the external finishing work. High-temperature firing gives to a ceramic a very high strengthness and resistance to mechanical stress and temperature extremes. The material is not flammable, not afraid of organic solvents, strong acids and alkalis (except hydrofluoric acid – HF). All this facts allows the use of granite in rooms with aggressive environ.

Surface types of ceramic are subdivided into:

  • Matte ceramic –is tiles, which is used in the form in which it came out of the kiln. Max hardness is  8 of 10 (MOHS)
  • Polished ceramic – is a slab polished after firing. Specular level is up to 80%. After laying the ceramic must be treated with a special protective mastics
  • Glazed ceramic (enameled) – applying the slab with enamel, followed by a two-way firing in a kiln
  • Lopatto – semi-polished granite – matt surface is partially cutting and polishing
  • Rectified ceramic – is a slab with the trimmed edge for giving it a strictly specified sizes
  • Structured ceramic granite – a slab with a rough surface, which is reaching by means of special stamps
