Large and thin tiles are one of the most important trends in the ceramics market right now, as we have already talked about in this blog. However, the manufacturing of these thinner tiles can be tricky, and maintaining the quaity is a challenge.
The main limitation in tile thickness comes from the limit in the plasticity of the formula. Keeping that in mind, maintaining a good raw material quality, hence having good plastic behavior, may ensure the product quality, even with thin thicknesses. But there are other solutions available in the market, like using ceramic additives. Both sinthetic and natural additives exist, and depending on your clay and process they can help to keep a good strength even with thin profiles.
