The production of granules (seeds similar to apples) as the primary particles of porcelain production, the shape of the granules and the percentage of moisture in them make them lock together during full pressing, and this causes the density to increase.
Finally, the pressing of the granules produced with a specific percentage of moisture is one of the most important reasons for increasing the strength and other features of porcelain. Finally, baking a porcelain product that undergoes a baking cycle, causes the final phases to appear in porcelain. In this cycle, the temperature is around 1200 degrees Celsius, which helps to be resistant and stable against reactive factors, and finally, the product shines and the appearance quality of the product increases during the polishing stage.
