Crossville Porcelain Countertops, from domestic tile manufacturer Crossville, Inc., are versatile, 12mm (.47″) thick porcelain products engineered to provide endurance and style for all types of countertop installations, including both interior and exterior applications. The line offers a range of surface visuals for various projects. Advanced technical characteristics, ensuring durability, low maintenance, and stain resistance keep with the performance expected of porcelain tile.
“Our porcelain countertops offer the superior performance expected of porcelain tile—strength, stain resistance, ease of maintenance, UV stability, and weather resistance. The performance offers real advantages compared to stone and other materials used for countertops,” said Frank Douglas, Crossville’s VP of business development.
The 100% porcelain product is fired with added fiberglass reinforcement on the back. This added measure of strength combined with the dense, non-porous body ensures the material will not crack, yellow, or stain and is built to last. Crossville Porcelain Countertops’ technical characteristics aid in its outperformance of alternative countertop surfaces such as natural stone and quartz.
The long lasting Porcelain Countertops are resistant to stains, heat, high temperatures, chemicals, acids, alkalis, solvents, scratches, and abrasions. They require no special cleaning products for maintenance and are resistant to mold, fungi, and graffiti. In addition, since the products are suitable for the outdoors, they are also frost resistant and colorfast in UV light. Dimensional stability makes the countertops easier to cut and fiberglass inclusion prevents splintering and cracking.
The 10 products in the Crossville Porcelain Countertops line, all exclusive to Crossville, capture super-realistic visuals and nuanced tones. Several options are designed to coordinate with popular porcelain tile collections by the company. The looks offered are Black Tie, Night Watch, Film Noir, Suspense, Baltic, Wheat Field, Femme Fatale, Lightning, State of Grace, and Sugar Coat. Each comes in unpolished or polished finishes.
The 1620mm x 3240mm (63.78″ x 127.56″) size offers ease of installation for a range of countertop applications. Additionally, the material may be finished in a variety of ways to achieve custom looks. Installers may build the product up with mitered edges to desired thickness or keep things sleek and modern with a 12mm eased or bullnose edge. The material may be extended to backsplashes and shower walls to create cohesive looks.
