Home > Winners > #72330


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cashmere Carrara

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Surfacing Solution

INSPIRATION:
Cashmere Carrara have superior properties such as scratch resistance thanks to process raw materials is quartz minerals hardest material; nonporous due to engineered stone technology. Hygienic and antibacterial surfaces, shiny like diamonds, sustainable every slab, fireproof, higher chemical resistance, higher abrasion, flexural and impact strength, thermal shock and slip resistance and so on never been on natural stones and marble.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Cashmere Carrara design is inspired from the natural marble semi-transparent structure which is getting each day more rare on earth. Cashmere Carrara is a opaque and very white, carrara marble look engineered stone. What makes it unique is that, it is the natures representation in a more sustainable and durable way.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Natural quartz minerals and resin composed in mixers. The mixture transport directly to distribution unit. Vein effect unit gives a marble look pattern. Mixture go to the vibration press under vacuum and pressed. The slab shaped to length of 310 cm and the width of 152 cm and the thickness of 30 cm, cured at the oven, polished with diamond abrasives to give them higher glosses finishes and final quality control area separated the slabs to their quality and pick up glossy surface face to face, bundled and transport to the clients.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Cashmere Carrara Project started at 2016 in Belenco research and development laboratory pilot plant, start up in 2016 at the production and exhibited to the market at 2017. Since 2017 to these time Belenco Cashmere Carrara on the market of mainly USA.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Building Materials, Construction Components, Structures & Systems Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Cashmere Carrara quartz surfaces are composed of natural quartz aggregates, which is one of the hardest minerals in nature, and advanced polymers, making it hard and resilient, even harder and four times more resistant to flexion than granite. This compacted structure makes Cashmere Carrara very hard and nonporous, one of the most important advantages of the quartz surfaces is that they never need to be waxed for sealing every year whereas natural granite, marble do.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Cashmere Carrara is a compound stone. Product dimensions, width 1520 mm, depth 20 mm, height 3100 mm. The compound stone produced by vibratory pressing under vacuum process. Products use kitchen countertops and cut to size surface solutions. Several finishing treatments are available. Protection and maintenance is easy due to product high technology superior properties. The product surface food contact, hygienic and antibacterial.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design data collected from natural white carrara marble, inspired from its user demand. The design raw materials chosen from most white quartz on earth. Different range of quartz granules set together at the powder quartz and pigments for technical design, developed at the RnD pilot plant. Standard tests apply to the prototype product. Visually and technically design confirmation scale up the design at the plant production and the quality checks repeated for final approval.

CHALLENGE:
Carrara marble is getting harder to find each day and it’s very expensive. Cashmere Carrara derived from this challenge, offers relatively cheaper, sustainable and also a more durable product to the market. Rather than the marble, Cashmere Carrara has stable opaque and very white colour on each slab, high chemical, physical and abrasion resistance. Cashmere Carrara is our offer as a better alternative instead of already extincting Carrara marble.
