The difference between bone china mugs and ceramic mugs | Win-Win

September 13, 2023

1. Different raw materials

Bone china mugs are made by adding about 30% of herbivorous animal bone meal (ox bone meal is the best) into the ceramic raw materials, and then undergo three firing processes: high-temperature plain firing, low-temperature glaze firing, and decal firing.


Ceramics is a craft that China is famous for around the world. Most of the raw materials for these porcelain are kaolin, porcelain stone and a small amount of lime.


2. Different permeability

The function of bone meal is to increase the light transmittance of porcelain. Generally, bone china mugs contain 30%-45% animal bone meal. Therefore, the raw material of bone china mugs, bone meal, makes it very permeable. Ceramics generally do not have good permeability. Transparency, relatively thin ceramics such as Linglong porcelain can transmit light.


3. Different thermal insulation properties

Bone china mugs also have better heat retention than ordinary porcelain and can brew better tea or coffee.


4. Different degrees of cleaning difficulty

Bone china does not stick to oil. Even if you use a bone china mug to drink some oily soup, just rinse it with water and wipe it dry. For ordinary ceramic tableware, tea stains and perennial oil stains need to be removed with the help of various detergents such as baking soda.


5. Different durability

Because the composition of bone china is different from that of ordinary porcelain, it is lightweight, fine and hard, and can be made thinner, tougher and more wear-resistant. It is not easy to wear and crack. Bone china can be heat exchanged in water at 180℃ and 20℃ without cracking.


6. Different appearance

Bone china, the milky white color of natural bone powder, with a little yellow in the white, is similar to milk powder; the white color of ceramics can be bluish white, bright white, etc. Bone china is thin, only 2 to 2.5mm thick, and its weight is much lighter than a ceramic mug of the same size.
