SLAB SIZE 112 x 64 x 2cm
Product Description – GLASSOS® CALACATTA is a sintered quartz surface material made from a proprietary blend of quartz powder and other fine minerals. GLASSOS ® CALACATTA is a solid body material and it is fused together using only intense high temperature. No resins or epoxies are used in the process. The result is a veined white surface that is extremely hard, scratch resistant, UV stable and resistance to acid and alkali. It is also bacteria resistant free of radon and has virtually no porosity. Sizes and availability – Slabs are produced in nominal dimensions of 64” x 112 x 3/4” Cut to size tolerances on dimension are +/- 1/16” on slab. The back of the slabs may have some irregularities from the manufacturing process. Calibration may be required to get a uniform thickness on the edge. Applications – Walls, floors, counter tops, vanity tops, shower jambs, sills, niches, saddles and exterior panels. Suggested Minimum Joint Width and allowances – Interior horizontal countertop seams up to 25” deep require a joint space of 1/32” min, 1/16” -1/8” joint when greater than 25” deep. Interior vertical panels up to 25” minimum require a joint space of 1/16” – 1/8”, 1/8” -1/4” when greater than 25” deep. Suggested minimum exterior joint width 7/16”.
