Advantages of Antolini Tech
Resistant to Household Chemicals
Wine & Lime Resistant
Antolini, the biggest name in natural stone, has released a new line – Antolini Tech. This collection of porcelain slabs was made in an effort to resemble natural stone but provide advantages such as durability, ease of maintenance, versatility and resistance to the weather. These materials come in different designs with veining across the surface to mimic the look of natural stone designs. This is the perfect choice for those looking for natural stone designs but want the low maintenance and ease of care on their project. The Antolini Tech Porcelain Collection is available in 10 color choices to provide an elegant look for any project.
Clean & Healthy Living
As mentioned above, Antolini is constantly coming up with new, innovative technology to take them further in the industry. They have now created a new treatment that offers natural stone full protection from etching and staining. This is changing the game for those looking at marbles but worried about the upkeep. During production, this treatment is applied, making the stone 50% harder in order to protect it from damage caused by acid-based food and drink. Not only does this technology work to prevent damage of the stone, it maintains the colors and characteristics of the material. A couple more advantageous characteristics Azerocare provides is the protection from fat, oil and grease because it also makes the surface water and oil- repellent!
Because this treatment is permanent, there is no need to further seal the material. Also, once treated, the surface remains easy to clean with just water, soap and a gentle wash cloth.
This enables the safer and more effective processing of even very rare materials and enhances the beauty of the stone through the optimal polishing of all the materials, regardless of structure and petrographic composition.
• The process is the outcome of years of extensive research and experimentation using aviation- and naval-derived components;
• AVP® involves the vacuum-soaking of the slabs with special resins of the highest quality, made specifically and exclusively for Antolini.
