Krion®: the best raw material for a beautiful and long lasting solid surface

One of the key points about Krion® ‘s wide acceptance among architects and interior designers, and regarding the extended use of this new generation solid surface –coverings for façades and interior walls, the creation of decorative elements and furnishing- can be found in the very high quality of its raw materials.

Krion® is a solid surface developed by PORCELANOSA Group. The composition of Krion® consists of two-thirds natural minerals (ATH; Alumina Trihydrate) combined with a low percentage of high resistance resins. Therefore, it is a soft material and its warm surface is pleasant to touch. It is similar to natural stone and complex shapes, so imaginable structures can easily be made.

In order to get optimal results, each stage of the solid surface production is carefully taken into account, firstly focusing on the purity of the aluminas selected to create this solid surface with highly technical and aesthetic properties. This composition allows it to get radii of curvature which is hard to find in other similar products on the market.

As far as the advantages of the solid surface by PORCELANOSA Group are concerned, the purity of the aluminas by Krion® allows it to get a very pure white, noticeable in the 1100 Snow White finish by Krion®, which is one of the most sought after.

The purity of the aluminas makes the low pigmentation possible, and this is what conveys the capacity of backlighting into the layers of this finish by Krion® concerning certain thicknesses, by backlighting walls, ceilings, counters and endless applications by means of the bas-relief technique.

Furthermore, the low pigmentation of 1100 Snow White by Krion® provides this material with a high resistance to ultraviolet rays and remains unaffected under exposure to sunlight, which is what reinforces it as a choice for many as a covering for façades and outdoor use.

In addition to all these advantages, it is worth mentioning that Krion® is fully recyclable, hence the plates in disuse or the products made with this solid surface can be reprocessed and used again in new applications.
