Why NeroX™?

Luxury bathroom environments dedicated to enjoyment and style present particular challenges.
Discerning customer senses and tastes must be enticed by effortless style, while functionality calls for hygiene, stain resistance and easy-care under constant use.
NeroX™ is a new generation of stunning black proprietary solid surface composite material, developed and manufactured by Aquatica® starting January 2019 that proposes a balanced solution for meeting the above listed combination of requirements.

What is NeroX™?

Nerox mineral

NeroX™ (formerly AquateX™ Black) is a blend of Hematite and Boehmite minerals with state-of-the-art acrylic modified resins and high-purity carbon black pigment. Using high-speed, vacuum assisted, dispersion and mixing we were able to create a visually stunning and highly desirable, high performance black solid surface material.

Just like its older sibling AquateX™, NeroX™ is an inert, hypoallergenic, non-toxic and 100% recyclable stone composite material that combines two opposites - a warm, silky soft exterior and a tough, durable interior. It has a strong resistance to sunlight, is dense/non-porous, hygienic, durable and is pleasant to touch due to its velvety texture.

  • Premium Texture

    Premium Texture

    Silky smooth texture, which is warm and pleasurable to touch. The closest reproduction of a natural stone surface, available in an elegant matte finish.

  • Durable

    Durable

    If maintained properly, NeroX™ resin bathtubs and basins will outlast any other black sanitaryware. Damage can be repaired by a specialized technician using our supplied repair kit. Periodic application of Nanowax will keep the NeroX™ bathtubs and washbasins looking new. Just like AquateX™, NeroX™ is homogeneous throughout and will therefore never delaminate.

  • Eco-Friendly

    Eco-Friendly

    Just like AquateX™, NeroX™ is an innovatively ground-breaking and fully recyclable material.

  • Fire & Heat Resistant

    Fire & Heat Resistant

    NeroX™ can be used in areas with higher fire safety requirements. The surface won't lose its quality or properties, even at 100ºC. If NeroX™ is burnt - the material produces a fire extinguishing liquid.

  • Safe &  Harmless

    Safe & Harmless

    NeroX™ is an inert and non-toxic material, which is safe to use in medical facilities and in areas that can come into contact with food. It does not react to any chemicals being in its vicinity. Thanks to its composition and smooth seamless structure, it has inherent antimicrobial characteristics.

  • Easily Cleanable

    Easier Cleaning Than Any Other Black Stone Sanitaryware

    NeroX™ can be cleaned and restored to its original state with a simple abrasive detergent and a microfiber cloth, which can remove everything from cigarette burns, ink, hair dye, crayons, wine and coffee stains. A simple, periodic treatment with Nanowax will enact a stain protective barrier to address the biggest weakness of any black stone sanitaryware. Nanowax will also minimize any wear and tear signs that might occur over the course of product’s lifetime.

  • UV-Resistant

    UV-Resistant

    While designed primarily for indoor use, NeroX™ is UV stabilized and blushing resistant. It could be placed on shaded terraces or balconies for occasional outdoor use.*

*Despite being UV stabilized, NeroX™ has demonstrated extreme sensibility to direct UV rays. We do not recommend NeroX™ for outdoor use, unless shaded from direct sunlight and/or covered during the non-use.
**While the physical properties of AquateX™ are not adversely affected by outdoor exposure, surface gloss might be reduced and some colour changes may be observed over time.
***These changes can be removed by periodic sanding, but this refurbishing step is not always practical
****AquateX™ and NeroX™ bathtubs must not be used with hot water under freezing subzero (anything of 0ºC or under 0ºC) air temperatures.
*****The temperature difference between the air (room) temperature and the water temperature inside the tub must never exceed 40ºC (105ºF).
******Please not that some colours perform better than others in terms of weather resistance and fading.
