The limits on size and thickness formerly imposed by ceramics can now be surpassed . Coverlam is a laminated porcelain tile 3 mm thick produced by mixing the natural raw materials, ground together in the presence of water, compacted using a technologically-advanced pressing system and then fired in a novel hybrid kiln (gas and electricity), which amongst other things enables major reductions to be made in CO2 emissions. Furthermore, Coverlam is structurally reinforced by means of a glass fibre mesh 0.5 mm thick adhering to the back, endowing it with optimal mechanical strength. It is made in pieces measuring 3 m x 1 m, which are rectified and available in a variety of shapes and sizes, made by dividing up the initial piece using an automated cutting system. Thanks to its thickness of merely 3.5 mm, Coverlam weighs only 7.8 kg/m2. This means that Coverlam is considerably easier to cut and handle and notably reduces the logistical costs of packing and transport. Coverlam is resistant to bending, UV light, attack by chemicals, wear, fire and frost. Coverlam is recyclable and the manufacturing process achieves the highest degree of respect for the environment.
All these properties make Coverlam a unique, exceptional, innovative product.
