AquateX™ BioEco is an eco-sustainable solid surface composed of 55% natural inert minerals of high purity and 45% bio-resin - a viscous substance of plant origin.
55% of AquateX™ BioEco is composed of a mineral filler composition of high-purity aluminum hydroxide derived from Gibbsite - the filler used in medicine as an antacid for humans and animals.
The remaining 45% is the result of relentless creativity and exploration: AquateX™ BioEco takes advantage of a naturally-occurring process by which plants secrete resins for their protective benefits. Such resin is the perfect substitute for the fossil alternatives common in the bathroom industry. What´s more, all resins in AquateX™ BioEco comes from certified cultivations, which results in healthy bathroom products that look amazing while protecting the planet´s delicate ecosystems.
Moreover, products made of AquateX™ and AquateX™ BioEco weight less than their visually-similar alternatives, often reducing bathtub and basin fabrication material needs by as much as 40%. This, in turn, reduces CO2 emissions associated with raw material extraction, product manufacturing, and final shipping — all great for the planet, and also for you: A light product leads to easy handling, quick installation, and lower transportation costs.
Manufactured in Europe at our facilities, all AquateX™ and AquateX™ BioEco products are self-extinguishing and compatible with Class 1 fire resistance requirements. They are warm to the touch, non-porous, hypoallergenic, 100% restorable, and easily repairable.
