For more than 40 years Mirage; the leader in Italian porcelain tiles; has been supplying porcelain stoneware floors to more than 130 countries worldwide including U.S. Mirage has installed over 130 million square meters of ceramic slabs throughout the world, a guarantee of the quality of its versatile, high-performance porcelain stoneware. This material is able to match any aesthetic or technological requirement and has gained a great deal of recognition. The focus has always been on developing products with a cutting-edge style and high technical performances that can be placed in high traffic areas such as airports, shopping centres or stations. Mirage allows homeowners to create an exterior design that is an expansion of the interior space, which is a common design trend today. Mirage was the first ceramics company to decide to use porcelain stoneware outdoors and obtained by using a particular production process, and it is the perfect answer to the needs of innovative architecture, since it is able to combine the outstanding technical performance necessary for outdoor areas with a sophisticated, stylish appearance.
Porcelain stoneware is a compact, resistant material with virtually nil porosity (and therefore absorbs almost no water). The outstanding feature of porcelain stoneware slabs is their composition. Only the purest materials are used, with minerals, kaolin, feldspars and clay making up 99% of each individual slab, while colours from natural sources complete the aesthetic effect. No glues or resins are used to compact the slabs. To make the material homogeneous and compact, it is mechanically pressed at a ratio of more than 500Kg per m² and fired in kilns over 90 metres long at a temperature above 1,250°.
Mirage uses innovative technology to produce unique ceramic slabs, avoiding the repetitive textures and replicated effects typical of more traditional decorated ceramics. Each slab has its own unique identifying features. Mirage porcelain stoneware meets the criteria for innovative architecture with its ability to combine aesthetics and technological performance. This is a product with a vitrified structure, low porosity and the ability to resist external agents, guaranteeing high impermeability to acids, dirt and frost. These porcelain stoneware floors and coverings are non-slip, abrasion and fire-resistant and comply with current international standards. Mirage's designer solutions are ideal for installation in residential and public settings, even on intense foot and heavy traffic flooring, where they guarantee excellent durability over time and allow you to personalise any environment in the perfect way.
Mirage porcelain pavers offer a range of stone, wood, and concrete textures in modular shapes, coordinating with modern design trends for larger pieces. With large stock sizes and special orders, Mirage pavers can be installed over sand, grass, gravel, or concrete. Mirage porcelain pavers also offering a thicker, more durable alternative to indoor tiles, with thicknesses available in 3/4 inch for patios and walkways and 1-1/4 inch for driveways. These pavers are more economical, non-slip, and resistant to breakage, fading, and corrosive effects from rain, pool chemicals, and other chemicals. Mirage offers true beauty in natural stone, offering virtually maintenance-free and durable options. It resists stains, moss, and mold growth, and maintains minimal color variation. Mirage's color remains consistent over time, and if a paver cracks or chips, it can be easily replaced. It can be cleaned using any cleaner and withstand pressure-washing without deteriorating the finish. Mirage is also frost-free and resistant to thermal shock in colder climates.
