KRION™ is a next generation solid surface developed the by PORCELANOSA Group. It is a material similar to natural stone.
The composition of KRION™ consists of two-thirds natural minerals combined with a low percentage of high-resistance resins which provide its unique characteristics: no pores, anti-bacterial, hard wearing, resistant, durable, easy to repair, low maintenance and easy to clean. It is processed in a similar way to wood and can be cut into sheets, joined and thermoformed to make curved elements. It is even possible to use in an injection moulding production process to create different designs and projects that would be impossible to create using other materials. Its warm surface is pleasant to touch and can withstand attacks by concentrated acids, is highly resistant to all types of stains and is unaffected by chemical products, including solvents. Its lack of pores and proven resistance to adverse weather conditions also make it suitable for outdoor use. It can be used to create entirely new coverings for buildingFurthermore, its heat resistance and fireproof properties mean that this solid surface can be in contact with any heat source without being damaged.
KRION™ presents designers with a wide range of options due to its extensive range of finishes, with a wide range of colours including a pure white, and offers great possibilities in terms of design. Its unique properties mean that this material can also be backlit, with a degree of translucency chosen by the designer, to create suggestive atmospheres and spectacular shapes.
KRION Solid Surface has also developed K-Life, a technological leap forward which allows for the domestic elements that we use daily to actively contribute to the cleaning and quality of the atmosphere, in houses and in contract spaces also improving people’s quality of life. Using the photo catalysis concept, K-Life improves air quality by neutralising nitrogen oxide, sulphur dioxide and volatile organic compounds. When K-Life is in contact with any type of light, the properties of this matter, which are unique in the world, are activated, initiating a self-cleaning process and air regeneration.
