Water and raw materials mix together until a sand-like consistency is reached. Recipes vary slightly however feldspar, clay,
silica sand and other materials are included in the mixture.
In this next step, a spray dryer removes the excess moisture from the mixture until the perfect consistency is reached before the mixture
is moved into a press.
Now, the porcelain mixture is pressed to form the tile. Each size and shape of available porcelain tiles use a special punch to create the body
of the tile, called Greenware.
Greenware is the term used for tiles that have not been glazed or fired. Prior to that step, the raw materials are placed in a dryer to
remove moisture, readying the tiles for the next step.
After the tiles have dried, the next step is to add the pattern and colors using a state-of-the-art inkjet printer. After the pattern is applied,
the glaze is applied to protect the tiles.
