Composite marble are materials composed of high natural marble (in most cases 90% and over) and a combination of raw materials, pigments and polymer resins that result in materials with the natural beauty of great marble but with significantly improved performance characteristics both in terms of resistance and durability.
Composite marble, also known as engineered marble or pre-cast Terrazzo marble is made in industrial premises with controlled environments that work on unique and distinctive products, finishes to offer products that constantly adapt to the needs of residential and commercial spaces. Composite marble floorings are a preferred choice of materials for properties that seek luxurious decoration finishes with resistant surfaces that are lighter, stronger and less expensive when compared to natural marble. The quality control processes that take place in the production of engineered marble ensures natural fissures and scratches are cleared out off the surfaces prior to finishing, ensuring every slab is consistent guaranteeing homogenous designs.
Composite marble is a great option to use in bathrooms as it comes in finishes with anti-slip materials.Engineered marble products gained traction in the 70’s and can be found across interior flooring and walls and in facades, shopping centres, steps and patios externally. Composite marble can be re-polished every few years to recover its original sheen if required and is a super budget-friendly product. Although usually more resistant and durable than its natural counterpart, composite marble is softer than granite and quartz and gen.
Products such as Terrazzo Marble that come from pre-cast sheets, are also made by mixing pure natural marble crystals with additives and chips of glass, marble or granite which are cured into an oven with vibro-compression that results in a uniformed surface that is traditionally seen across walls, floors and patios.
