What is TECHNISTONE®?
It is a modern material – a high-quality quartz conglomerate composed of natural materials that are combined and processed using the latest Breton technologies. Technistone consists of 95% natural materials – mainly quartz and granite – and 5% additives. Thanks to its unique properties developed during production, Technistone meets all the expectations of today’s kitchen worktop users. These additives are components that give the material the appropriate hardness and colour pigments that provide aesthetics and colour stability. Technistone is identical to natural stone in its properties and even surpasses it in some aspects. The material is available in slab sizes of 304×140 cm and in thicknesses of 20 and 30 mm and 12 mm (for most materials).
Advantages of the TECHNISTONE quartz conglomerate
The Technistone quartz conglomerate worktops are highly resistant to scratches, cuts, heat and also to common household acids such as lemon juice, vinegar, etc. These properties place the Technistone quartz conglomerate above other comparable solutions. As a result, kitchen worktops can generally be used without restrictions and guarantee a perfect surface appearance even after years of use.
The easy and quick maintenance of the Technistone quartz conglomerate is its greatest advantage. The smooth, non-porous surface is comparable to that of glass. The fact that the material is free of glued edges and joints greatly improves the cleaning possibilities of the Technistone quartz conglomerate surface.
Full of colour, texture, perfection in design. The worktop is the most important element in any kitchen, and the Technistone quartz conglomerate adds a touch of glamour. It is elegant in its essence, perfect in every detail.
