Porcelain 

 January 17, 2017

By  Dorian Bodnariuc

Porcelain is used for coffee cups and mugs and for coffee drippers. It is also used for kettles and coffee pots. Porcelain is a ceramic with a special manufacturing formula and process, and therefore it is interchangeable and even better than ceramics.

Porcelain is a ceramic material made by heating raw materials, generally including clay in the form of kaolin, in a kiln to temperatures between 1,200 °C and 1,400 °C . The toughness, strength, and translucence of porcelain arise mainly from the formation of glass and the mineral mullite within the fired body at these high temperatures. Porcelain derives its present name from old Italian porcellana because of its resemblance to the translucent surface of the shell.
