China Ceramics Co., Ltd., incorporated on September 20, 2009, is a China-based manufacturer of ceramic tiles. The Company’s ceramic tiles are used for exterior siding, interior flooring, and design in residential and commercial buildings. Its products, sold under the ‘Hengda’’ or ‘HD’ brand, the ‘Hengdeli’ or ‘HDL’ brand, ‘TOERTO’, ‘WULIQIAO’ and ‘Pottery Capital of Tang Dynasty’ brands, are available in approximately 2000 styles, colors and sizes combinations and are distributed through a network of distributors or directly to large property developers. The Company has six principal product categories: porcelain tiles, glazed tiles, glazed porcelain tiles, rustic tiles, ultra-thin tiles and polished glazed tiles. Its manufacturing facilities operated by Jinjiang Hengda Ceramics Co., Ltd. are located in Jinjiang, Fujian Province, and its manufacturing facilities operated by Jiangxi Hengdali Ceramic Materials Co., Ltd. are located in Gaoan, Jiangxi Province.
The Company sells 100% exterior wall ceramic tiles. It produces six types of ceramic tiles: Porcelain tiles, Glazed tiles, Glazed porcelain tiles, Rustic tiles, Ultra-thin tiles and Polished glazed tiles. Porcelain tiles are fired at extreme temperatures and are therefore stronger and harder than other types of ceramic tiles. The material and the color is the same throughout and porcelain tiles are extremely durable. Although porcelain tiles have a matte surface, they absorb less water than other ceramic tiles, and as such, they are a superior solution for exterior tiling where there is frequent exposure to moisture. Glazed tiles have a glossy finish and color patterns may be added to the exterior surface of the tile. The glaze does not go beyond the exterior surface of the tile and the interior color will show if the tile is chipped. Although glazed tiles are less water-resistant than matte porcelain tiles, they are easier to clean due to their glossy surface. Glazed porcelain tiles combine the advantages of porcelain tiles and glazed tiles, thus enabling the tiles to have a porcelain body with a stain-proof and glossy finish. Rustic tiles have greater versatility in their design as textures and colors can be added to their exterior surfaces and therefore can be used in more decorative situations. In addition to being used on exterior walls, rustic tiles are also used for interior walls and flooring. Ultra-thin tiles can be as thin as 4.0 mm, about half the thickness of traditional tiles. Due to their thinness, these tiles are more environmentally-friendly as the production process requires fewer raw materials and less energy. When used in combination with a specialized insulating material, the combination enables greater heat retention in the winter and keeps buildings cool in the summer with less load bearing stress on exterior building walls. Its ultra-thin tiles were commercialized in 2008. Because no distributors ordered ultra-thin tiles for 2013, it stopped production of ultra-thin tiles in 2013. Ceramic tiles can be manufactured in differing sizes according to customer specifications, with the largest sized tiles measuring 800 mm by 800 mm. The Company can produce over 2,000 different combinations of products, colors, textures and sizes to meet the various demands of its customers.
