Aquatica, the bathing specialists, have been offering truly distinctive and unique bathroom products for years. With AquateX™, we’ve created the latest generation in the composite material which combines two opposites – a silky soft exterior and a tough, durable interior. The composition of AquateX™ is based on the natural rock – bauxite mixed with polyester resin hardened in high temperatures.
AquateX™ is the modern interpretation of marble, which, while retaining its noble appearance, has significantly improved on several properties. Classic AquateX™ comes in white or satin but is available in other shades.
AquateX™ is used in the creation of visually- and geometrically-perfect sinks, table tops, furniture facades, wall tiles, skirting boards, stair railings, and a variety of other design elements.
As AquateX™ is wonderfully easy to maintain and very safe, it is also suitable for areas of intensive use: for example, in cafés and hotels, shopping centers, offices and factories, and in schools and hospitals.
AquateX™ is easy to maintain using a damp sponge and household cleaners. It will retain its natural matte finish for years.
AquateX™ is a completely renewable material. Small nicks or scratches can be fixed by sanding or polishing. More serious damage can be taken care of with AquateX™.
Advanced AquateX™ Solid Surface is a homogeneous, polymer composite material applied in the manufacture of all new Aquatica stone bathtub models (from 2013). The main components are acrylic, modified polyester resin, and mineral filler (Aluminum Hydroxide).
Key material properties:
The components are mixed together in an automated casting machine – the latest technology from Germany. The material is densified in a vacuum-mixer, which provides for a void-free material with high mechanical properties and long-lasting surface quality.
The casting dispersion is extruded into closed casting molds. After the products have passed preliminary polymerization, the units go through post-curing (in a heated oven). This finalizes the polymerization process and maximizes the mechanical properties (surface hardness, stiffness, chemical resistance, etc.) of the products.
The production process ends with multi-stage, careful surface finishing to give a beautifully distinct, polished satin look. After finishing the surface, the products are thoroughly tested to assure a high-quality finish and standard.
