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
The innovative Antolini is working to respond to people's rapidly growing need for protection and sanitation in indoor spaces. Their newest invention is known as Azerobact Plus which is an exclusive process that is capable of increasing the performance of their natural stones to make them healthier and more hygienic.
By creating an antibacterial surface on the material, the process inhibits the formation and proliferation of bacteria, and therefore, contributes to a cleaner, healthier lifestyle. These materials are suitable for all applications but are most relevant in the kitchen and bath areas of the home, where the need for protection is the highest.
Of course, Antolini provides these innovative technologies while never compromising the color or unique properties of the natural stone. Azerobact Plus combines beauty, innovation, and hygiene in order to guarantee an aesthetically pleasing, clean, and healthy surface. It is fully compliant with International Standards and can be cleaned with water, neutral soap, and a soft, damp cloth.
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.
AVP is a revolutionary process for the natural stone sector that, through the use of the most innovative vacuum technologies, strengthens the entire thickness of the slab by using special resins of the highest quality, specifically and exclusively made for Antolini.
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.
AVP® is a unique process that adds even more value to the quality of natural stone.
- 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.
It heals natural fragilities, protects the surface of the most natural stones, enhances the beauty of the stone, increases cut resistance and the flexural strength.
