Marazzi Ceramiche, Cementum

t’s called Cementum and it translates to “pure innovation”. This new material taps into the state-of-art research of Marazzi, the leader in the manufacture of designer surfaces, in order to reproduce the look and properties of cast concrete with porcelain stoneware. This is achieved with the sophisticated Bodyplus production technology, which brings out the depth and richness of the material with accents of color. Meanwhile, the non-reflecting glaze, which is applied with specific molds for each color, makes the surface realistic and soft-to-the-touch. Plus, it also uses Stepwise technology, which makes the porcelain stoneware completely non-slip.

There are nine formats (cm 120x120 and 60x120 6 mm; cm 75x150, 75x75, cm 60x120 and 60x60 20mm; cm 60x60, cm 30x60 and cm 18x21 in the concrete-look hexagonal form) which can be freely matched to a series of elements, eight colors (four natural ones– Ash, Sand, Nickel, Lead – and four contemporary ones – Indigo, Carbon, Olive, Cotto) and new patterns (Spring, Mosaico, Striato, and Arco) which reimagine the essence of the concrete.

This collection has got it all and allows for countless compositions. Cementum porcelain stoneware is full-bodied, colorful, refined, versatile and has a strong decorative feel. Pragmatic and beautiful, its aesthetics have been studied in the most minute details to recreate a natural and enveloping look which does not give up on high-quality. It provides us with the highest resistance to abrasion and wear, recycled raw materials and surfaces for indoor and outdoor floors and wall coverings so we can decorate our domestic and commercial spaces with a contemporary look and a personal touch.
