Granite Transformations' versatile surfacing

Granite Transformations' versatile surfacing
Granite Transformations’ agglomerate surfacing is a versatile material that is widely used for domestic and commercial applications. The UK company is keen to expand its products' architectural use in the cruise sector.  

Although similar in composition to quartz surfacing or engineered stone, Granite Transformations’ material has a distinctive manufacturing process, making it lighter and slimmer without sacrificing strength, the company said. Composed of around 95% natural material blended with a high performance polymer resin, it is offered in granite, quartz, recycled glass and mosaic materials.

Coming in a palette of more than 60 colours and patterns, the product fits on top of existing materials and can be used for flat and vertical surfaces, as well as flooring.

Granite Transformations’ products are ASTM tested and UNI ES IS0 certificated for heat, impact, scratch and stain resistance. Whilst not IMO-approved, they have been used in fitting out cruise ships. The company said testing and certification is discussed with the architects and designers at the outset to ensure all parties are satisfied.
