Stoneware is a kind of ceramic. It tends to be thicker and heavier than porcelain or china, so it's more durable.

From personal experience, I would definitely say the inexpensive line put out by Corelle. I bought service for 8 sixteen years ago, and I still have them all! Boy, am I tired of that pattern. Between Bisque, Porcelain and Stoneware dishes, Stoneware is the most durable and the reason is because it is fired at a high temperature. Corelle dishes are fine, but be careful when they do break because they break into very tiny splinters that are hard to see until someone walks on them barefooted.

Technically no. Because if you drop the stoneware on marble or hardwood floor, it may not break. But if you drop porcelain it will break.

The durability between ceramic and porcelain tiles is that porcelain tires are more dense and are considered more durable and better suited for heavy wear than the ceramic tiles.

Both are durable, but can chip. Porcelain is a form of stoneware. Both refer to high fire, well vitrified, non-porous ceramic ware, containing quartz or silica, kaolin, and feldspar. The main difference is that porcelain is formulated to be whiter and more translucent, with less iron. A durability comparison would depend on the exact mixture / brand / kind, but if you had to pick one for a general answer, porcelain may be more durable. Porcelains like Pillivuyt and Apilco are especially durable, and can even go from a freezer into a hot oven (though this is not recommended use with any stoneware including porcelain). Stonewares like Emile Henry or Denby usually have a glaze over another colour of base clay, and they tend to chip more easily.

The most common types of floor tiles are ceramic and porcelain. These are more viable solutions than marble and natural stones, which tend to be expensive and fragile. Floor tiles need to be durable and handle the constant foot traffic in entry areas, kitchens, and bathrooms of a house. Porcelain tiles have a relatively high density, which makes them very durable and resistant to cracks and damage. This material is also well known for its moisture resistance, which is important in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. Ceramic tiles have similar properties that offer great durability. However, unglazed ceramic tiles have to be covered with sealants to prevent stains and other damage.

The Chinese invented porcelain and that is why it is called "china." Chinese artists developed kilns as early as 100 AD. It was made by firing the ceramic material to the necessary temperature. It is so durable that 2,000 year old pieces still have bright colors.

no not all ceramic, there are semi metalic, which i believe are considered organic, it is my understanding, that ceramic pads are more durable and don't make as much brake dust, but if you don't use quality brake rotors the ceramic pads will ruin the rotors

Yes, they are more lightweight and I believe more durable as well.

Ceramic is a classic material for a vase and will last a lifetime as long as it is not abused. There are also composite vases which are more durable while still offering an attractive appearance.

Porcelain tiles require little maintenance and tend to last longer than other varieties of tile. It is also less prone to scratches and is very durable. Porcelain will absorb less moisture than other varieties which make spills easier to clean.

Yes, you can use ordinary ceramic wall tiles (CWT) for swimming pool but it wont be as durable as the vitrified tiles (VFT). CWT were not as hard as the VFT and only inteded for residential or wall uses. The thin glazing will easily chip specially on edges and will cause injury to the users. My opinion, if your on a budget, use the vitrified floor tiles, if you want durability, use the porcelain or homogenius tiles.

I would not use porcelain on steel sinks anywhere; they're junk. Go with chinaware bath sinks. They are cheap, good looking, and durable. Swanstone looks good in the kitchen, but they're expensive!

This would depend on your needs. Ceramic is durable, but grout can be somewhat hard to clean, and it is cold to the feet. Laminate has a really warm look, but is moisture sensitive and hard to repair.
