Product description

FORMAT: 1000X3000MM THICKNESS: 5,6MM GLOSSY: 5,6MM

Coverlam Calacata comes in two versions, Calacata Mix and Calacata Book. Calacata Book comes in a 100x300 cm format and recreates the ‘bookmatching’ technique. This practice, extremely sought-after as a way to decorate sophisticated spaces in interior design and architecture, creates two adjacent surfaces that reflect each other, giving the impression of an open book. Coverlam Calacata Book becomes a work of art.

Spaces are made elegantly glossy, bright and natural but with all the technical advantages of porcelain and the lightness of Coverlam, which enables rapid completion of any construction project, with striking, cutting-edge results.

Concept

COVERLAM IS AN INNOVATIVE PRODUCT MADE FROM NATURAL RAW MATERIALS WITH EXCEPTIONAL MECHANICAL AND AESTHETIC PROPERTIES THAT SURPASS THOSE OF ANY CONVENTIONAL TILING MATERIAL.

COVERLAM IS THE RESULT OF YEARS OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. THANKS TO THE INTRODUCTION OF LAMINATION PRESSING TECHNOLOGY, IT IS NOW POSSIBLE TO PRODUCE A 1200X3600 MM, 1620X3240 MM, 1000X3000 MM, 1200X2600 MM PORCELAIN TILE WHICH MAY BE AS LITTLE AS 3.5MM THICK, WHILE STILL MAINTAINING THE MECHANICAL AND AESTHETIC PROPERTIES CHARACTERISTIC OF PORCELAIN TILE. THIS BROADENS THE SCOPE OF PORCELAIN, OFFERING GREAT POTENTIAL FOR INNOVATION IN THE FIELDS OF CONSTRUCTION AND INTERIOR DESIGN.

LARGE FORMAT
COVERLAM IS MANUFACTURED IN PIECES OF UP TO 1200X3600 MM AND IS SOLD IN VARIOUS FORMATS, CREATED BY DIVIDING UP THE INITIAL PIECE WITH AN AUTOMATED CUTTING SYSTEM. THE 3.5 MM-, 10,5 MM- AND 12 MM-THICK COVERLAM MODELS ARE COMPOSED OF A PORCELAIN BASE AND A 0.5 MM-THICK FIBREGLASS MESH ADHERED TO THE BACK. AS A RESULT, THE MECHANICAL STRENGTH OF THE PIECE IS SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVED.

MINIMAL THICKNESS
DUE TO ITS REDUCED THICKNESS - 3.5 AND 5.6 MM COVERLAM ONLY WEIGHS 7.8 KG/M2 AND 14 KG/M2, RESPECTIVELY. THIS MAKES CUTTING AND HANDLING FAR EASIER. AS A RESULT, COVERLAM OFFERS SUBSTANTIAL FINANCIAL SAVINGS IN PROJECTS BY ENABLING FASTER COMPLETION TIMES.
