Product information

Stone Italiana is today a leading-edge manufacturer of recomposed quartz and marble surfaces. Over the years, the production has been a reflection of a new way of perceiving and using stone, something much like a semantic revolution. Stone Italiana has rediscovered qualities which are found in the natural world, such as uniqueness, non-repeatability and variety, yet it never tried to imitate nature. Rather, it has drawn inspiration from it to develop brand new materials that offer improved performance to an ever more discerning market. Stone Italiana has an on-going commitment to producing surfaces with enhanced mechanical strength, reduced thickness, weight and always experimenting with new colors and textures, while trying out mixture compositions and grades tailored to the Customer’s needs. The catalog consists of different types of products, mainly used for kitchen tops, worktops, bathroom tops, floors and walls.

THE PRODUCT

The present environmental declaration refers to the quartz product, a composite material based mainly on quartz produced by Stone Italiana. The production process includes the mixing of aggregates (quartz) of different granulometry, organic dyes and polyester structural resin (about 8%). The present EPD refers to four categories of quartz products, all used as floor covering:

CATEGORY 1: with cristobalite and mirror glass inserts;

CATEGORY 2: with ventilated quartz and mirror glass inserts;

CATEGORY 3: with ventilated quartz and mother-of-pearl inserts;

CATEGORY 4: with ventilated quartz and metallic silicon.

Quartz products can be produced and sold in different formats: in slabs measuring 125x125x2 cm or in tiles measuring 60x60x2 cm. These are packed in crates, while the slabs are packed in A-frame trestles.
