The exceptional beauty, strength and durability of quartz ensures a product that is far superior to natural stone and other manufactured surfaces. Created from 93% natural quartz aggregates, organic pigments and enhanced polymer resins, Caesarstone provides a surface with exceptional properties of heat, stain, scratch and chip resistance.

Stone Italiana is the un-disputed world leader in engineered quartz and marble based materials, employing the very latest technology in its two 'state-of-the-art' manufacturing facilities. The original 23,000m² production/warehouse facility, located in Zimella (Verona) Italy, commenced manufacture in 1979, followed by a second facility in Villesse.

The Stone Italiana product range is the result of leading-edge controlled manufacture, utilizing the very latest in computer-controlled production technology. Unadulterated marble or quartz material is first of all reduced to a fine grit-form and blended with a maximum 6% polyester resin. The resultant mixture is then subjected to a vacuum-vibro-compaction process followed by catalytic-conversion. The slabs are thereby hardened in a catalysis chamber consisting of a tower block with a series of heated surfaces, allowing multiple production of slabs in a single process. These collectively are maintained at a constant temperature of 85 degrees Celsius for approximately 30 minutes prior to polishing. Such modern technology produces a stone material with excellent values in terms of bending resistance, impact strength and low absorption, unlike natural stone.
