VOLARGNE, Italy, June 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — In an industry where trends are constantly evolving, Santamargherita S.p.A’s 7MM advanced surface, Surfalite, has blended groundbreaking technology with consumer insights to create a surface that is unlike any other on the wet wall surfaces market.
Surfalite combines positive qualities from all of the most popular wet wall surfaces, such as laminate, solid surface, acrylic, fiberglass, porcelain, ceramic, and natural stone into a flawless material for surrounding and protecting baths and showers. The resulting surface is resistant to mold, mildew, abrasion, heat, cracks, and dings, while never needing sealing or grouting, all with easy repairability.
“Just as colored tiles and cultured marble were both popular and inspiring surfaces in their times, we at Santamargherita have been working on creating the surface of the future, and market research is showing that consumers prefer the look and feel of engineered stone slabs and porcelain for wet wall applications.” Santamargherita’s VP of Sales, Michele Caneva, said. “Surfalite combines the lightness of porcelain with the durability of engineered stone.”
Available in large format slabs 130 x 65 x ¼ in (330 x 165 x 0.7 cm), Surfalite’s unique composition and thinness allow it to maintain a light weight 3.5 lbs/sqft (17 kg/sqm) that can be installed in any scenario, granting unlimited creativity to designers and architects.
The advanced surface’s initial range of 16 colors is inspired by natural stone, with more incredible designs coming later this year.
While ceramic and porcelain tiles, as well as acrylic and solid surfaces have had their moments in the past, Surfalite’s properties, which are revolutionary, and colors, which are smart and timeless, have proven it to be the future preferred surface for both commercial and residential wet wall applications.
