Design Elements For Terracotta Cladding
The surface of the terracotta cladding is mainly divided into two types: natural-fired and glazed.Get more news about Terracotta Cladding Price,you can vist our website!
"When the clay material are put into the kiln, there is only one color; when they are taken out from the kiln, there are tens of thousands of colors." By blending different types of clay materials and precisely controlling the firing temperature in the kiln, it is possible to produce terracotta cladding with a rich variety of colors. Typically, the natural-fired colors include white, yellow, red, brown, and gray. For some special colors or tones, pigments and glazes can be added so as to produce the desired colors. Clay raw materials, pigments and oxides are reacted at high temperatures (typically between 1100 and 1300 degree centigrade) so that the color is durable and non-fading.
In order to satisfy different requirements of the facade design, glazed terracotta came into being. After the terracotta loaf is dried and before it goes through the firing process, the glaze is applied to the natural surface terracotta panels whose color is similar to that of the glazed surface. LOPO can achieve bright glaze, matte glaze, frosted glaze and 3D injected surface with different brightness and delicate glaze. Among them, digital inkjet printing panels can vividly present the texture and color of stone, timber and other personalized patterns and colors.
2. Textures and Finishes
The natural surface is the most classic surface of the terracotta cladding, which can fully bring out the texture of the architectural terracotta. In addition, according to the design requirements of the building facade, the terracotta cladding can be processed with a wide variety of surface texture treatment. The surface texture of the LOPO terracotta cladding includes natural surface, sandblasted surface, wirestruck surface, corrugated surface, grooved surface, linear surface, wood grain surface and etc. Different textures and finishes and different colors in the terracotta cladding products can come up with endless possibilities, so that the design of the building facade is free from any restriction.
As the production process of modern terracotta products improves continuously, the terracotta cladding is no longer confined to flat shape. Based on the requirement of the project, it can provide a wide range of shapes and profiles. According to different facade structures, we can offer differently cross-sections and flexible geometric terracotta cladding products.
