Natural stones like marble, granite and quartz are used to produce NORTHSTONE®.
NORTHSTONE® is an eco-friendly product: its natural stones are solidly bound without resin-based binders.
NORTHSTONE® is compositional freedom: by choosing natural stones we can create absolutely new and original compositions, with limitless tailored solutions. .
NORTHSTONE® is homogeneous and solid; it is highly resistant to atmospheric corrosion.
NORTHSTONE® is fireproof and does not produce poisonous gas.
Thanks to its special production process, NORTHSTONE® boasts a water absorption ratio definitely lower than in other natural stones.
NORTHSTONE® care is simple: it conserves its brightness for years.
NORTHSTONE® has high mechanical characteristics, such as resistance to abrasion, bump, deflection, pressure and tear in case of anchoring.
The assemblage of NorthStone® is inexpensive; in NORTSTONE®'s products we use 100% eco-friendly mineral adhesive.
NORTHSTONE® is anti-slip depending on the finish required.
