Porcelain Slabs - IN-SIDE Series
Laminam is the porcelain slab. Laminam was the first porcelain slab in the world and today embodies all the know-how, experience, technology and aesthetic research available when it comes to large format surfaces. Laminam boasts the most complete range of products on the market, not only for sizes and thicknesses, but also for collections, colors and surfaces.
Laboratory tests have proven that Laminam XL is totally compatible with food preparation areas, no harmful elements are released with contact.
Easy to clean and maintain
Laminam XL has no special maintenance requirements as time goes by; all you need to clean the surface is warm water and a neutral detergent.
Eco-friendly and recyclable
Laminam is a totally natural product. It does not release any elements into the environment and can be easily milled and recycled in other manufacturing processes.
Compact surface, no surface porosity
The water absorption of Laminam XL is average 0.1%.
Laminam XL is not subject to dimensional variations of any significance, as it has a low coefficient of thermal expansion.
Suitable as an indoor or outdoor solution
Laminam XL can be used as a surface for interior or exterior décor.
Resistant to heat and high temperatures
The Laminam XL surface does not contain any organic materials and so will not be altered in case of direct contact with very hot items in the kitchen, like pots and pans, and high temperatures.
