What is the difference between ceramics and bone china?

1. Maintenance of ceramics

1. Household detergent can be used for daily cleaning.

2. Add a little ammonia with soap or use a mixture of the same amount of linseed and turpentine first, which will have stronger decontamination and can make the tiles more shiny.

3. If you spill strong dyeing liquids such as strong tea or ink on the bricks, wipe them off immediately.

4. Wax the polished tiles regularly to obtain long-lasting protection, and the time interval is 2-3 months.

5. If there are a few scratches on the brick surface, apply toothpaste on the scratched area and wipe it with a soft dry cloth to clean the scratches.

2. Maintenance of bone china:

1. It must be cleaned by hand, not dishwasher. If you really don’t want to wash by hand, you should choose a dishwasher with “porcelain and crystal” washing function.

2. Tableware with gold edges should not be put into the microwave oven to avoid corrosion.

3. The washing PH value must be between 11-11.5.

4. When washing with clean water, the water temperature should not exceed 80℃.

5. Do not immerse the hot cup directly in cold water, so as not to damage the porcelain due to rapid temperature changes.

6. If there are scratches, you can use toothpaste to polish.

7. If there is tea stains, it can be cleaned with lemon juice or vinegar.

8. It is best not to use it with sudden heat, so as not to burst.

9. Do not use an open flame directly

1. Different raw materials:

Porcelain is made of natural clay and various natural minerals as the main raw material, and the porcelain with bone powder content of more than 25% in the raw material is bone china.

2. Different processes:

Bone china firing adopts a secondary firing process, and the temperature is between 1200 degrees and 1300 degrees. Generally, ceramics can be formed after firing at 900 degrees.

3. Different weights:

Due to the high hardness of bone china, the porcelain is much thinner than ordinary porcelain, so bone china of the same volume is much lighter than porcelain.

4. Different origins:

Bone china originated in the United Kingdom and is a special porcelain for the royal family and nobility of the United Kingdom. Ceramics originated in China with a long history.

1. A healthy perspective

The difference in materials and craftsmanship between bone china and ceramics determines their grade gap. Animal bone charcoal is the main choice for making bone china, and its content is as high as 40%. At present, the high-quality bone meal of the British royal family with the highest bone meal content in the world is as high as 50%.

2. Process level

The bone china flower surface and the glazed surface are fused together, and it does not contain lead and cadmium which are harmful to the human body. It can be called a real “green porcelain”. Long-term use is beneficial to human health. Bone china has been fired twice, and the process is complicated. It is only produced in Britain, China, Japan, Germany, Russia, and Thailand. Bone china is light, dense and hard (twice as daily-use porcelain), not easy to wear and break, heat exchange at 180 degrees Celsius and 20 degrees Celsius without cracking, and the water absorption rate is less than 0.003%.

3. Thermal insulation effect

Compared with traditional porcelain, bone china has better heat retention and a better taste when drinking coffee or tea.

4. Durability

Bone china is more durable than ordinary ceramics. This is because the composition of bone china is different from ordinary porcelain. It can be thinner, tougher and more wear-resistant, not easy to wear and crack. The hardness of bone china should also be more than 2 times that of ceramics. Bone china will not crack at a time when the heat is exchanged between 180℃ and 20℃ in water. However, it is best not to deliberately frequent rapid cooling and heating during use, due to thermal expansion and contraction , Porcelain products are prone to bursting.

5. Product grade

Compared with ordinary ceramics, bone china is of much higher grade. For a long time, bone china has been a special porcelain for British royal and nobles. It is currently the only high-end porcelain recognized in the world. It has dual values ??of use and art. It is a symbol of power and status and is known as the king of porcelain.

In addition, the bone china is delicate and transparent, its shape is beautiful and elegant, the color surface is as moist as jade, and the flower surface is even more colorful. The development of bone china has been accepted and used by more and more people. They are no longer just for the guys who eat, the utensils for soup, but also as a kind of fashion and artistic enjoyment, as a manifestation of dining civilization , Gradually penetrated into our daily lives.
