A. Glass is extremely hard. It is equivalent to porcelain and granite – specifically, glass measures a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale (compared to 1 for talc and 10 for diamond).
A. Glass does not absorb anything; that is why it is favored for food containers and cooking. Cleaning is a simple matter of using common soap and water.
A. The glass will last indefinitely. Our glazes will never fade or deteriorate.
A. Glass is very strong but it is also brittle. Under normal circumstances, glass will not break or deteriorate, and once attached to a wall or floor, it will be as strong as any other tile; but if you hit it hard or try to bend it, it will break. That said, millions of windows on buildings and cars depend on the strength of glass.
