Why Ceramic Materials are Used in Elongated Toilets


Most elongated toilets are already commonplace, but have you ever wondered why most elongated toilets on the market are made of ceramics? Perhaps many people have not considered this problem at all, but in the process of designing the toilet, the designer has to consider many issues, and the question of what material is used to make it will definitely be considered.

First of all, whether domestic or foreign, the first toilet to appear was made of wood. It was not until 1885 that Thomas Tuweifu obtained the patent for the first all-ceramic toilet in the United Kingdom, and China was opened by the British in Tangshan in 1914. The factory produced China’s first ceramic toilet. The original wooden toilet is easy to leak, and because of the nature of wood, it is not easy to shape into a certain shape. Over time, feces will remain on the toilet, breeding bacteria, and spreading diseases. Later, someone suggested to use stone and lead to make a toilet, that is, to heat the stone and lead, and then use asphalt, turpentine and wax to seal the gap. This kind of toilet solves the leakage problem, but it is very troublesome to manufacture, and it is very heavy and inconvenient to use. In addition, there is a lot of dust and sitting on it in winter is cold, which also brings many health risks. 

The ceramic toilet is made of high-quality clay and high-quality natural mineral raw materials. It is formed by advanced molding technology and is fired at high temperature. The ceramic product has high density and low water absorption. It will not cause later cracking of the product due to environmental changes such as weather and temperature. To ensure long-term use of the product. The ceramic toilet is round and delicate, with smooth and bright glazed surface, not easy to adhere to dirt and easy to clean. The water tank is fully glazed, clean and easy to clean, not easy to breed bacteria, and reduce water failure. The pipeline is fully glazed to make the pipeline smoother, not easy to block, not easy to build up, good antibacterial and antifouling effect, and completely prevent odor and blockage. The ceramic toilet is novel in style, beautiful and fashionable, practical and durable. 

Therefore, over time, ceramics gradually replaced other materials and became the material of choice for elongated toilets.
