Infinity offers a structured, specialised response to the latest technological innovations in the world of porcelain stoneware and the new trends in the world of ceramics, based on Concorde Group's half-century of experience in the production of porcelain stoneware.
The Infinity Porcelain stoneware comes from careful research and selection of premium raw materials and is a highly specialised manufacturing process.
Essentially, porcelain is made from clay — but not just any type of clay. This specialized clay contains a high percentage of a mineral known as kaolinite along with silica, feldspar and other mineral oxides which together are responsible for the strength and durability of porcelain.
They are the same essential elements contained in granite that, when sintered at a temperature of 1230º C, create a new, compact material with incomparable technical performance.
The result is a super dense material that is perfect not only for countertop applications but also for wall coverings (interior and exteriors), flooring and furnishings.
Porcelain is approximately 30 percent stronger than granite and is scratch-resistant too. In fact, only other ceramics, like ceramic knives, are able to scratch the surface so avoid using these types of tools on your porcelain countertops. Porcelain is stain-resistant too.
In fact, to be certified as true porcelain, water absorption must be less than 0.05%. Repelling water from the surface means no stains and no discoloring.
And due to the high-heat required for the sintering process, the resulting porcelain surface can handle extreme temperatures, both hot and cold. And while the temperature isn’t a big concern, we still recommend using trivets to avoid very rare cases of thermal shock.
We especially recommend porcelain countertops in sunny spaces since it’s even UV-resistant too. With direct and prolonged exposure to sunlight, you’ll maintain the original finish without any discoloring.
Throughout the manufacturing cycle, Infinity is dedicated to practical actions that not only guarantee quality and efficiency but also ensure they’re acting as an environmentally responsible organization. This includes ensuring:
- 100% of the raw waste produced is reused during the manufacturing process.
- 100% of the water used in the manufacturing process is purified and fully reused during the grinding process.
- 80% of the electrical energy consumed is produced by the Infinity factory.
- Infinity slabs are made entirely from natural, non-toxic materials, most of which come from local quarries.
- Like all manufacturers belonging to Ceramics of Italy, Infinity voluntarily adheres to the Best Available Techniques protocol.
Infinity specialized in the production of large slabs in sizes up to a maximum of 1620×3240 mm, and thicknesses of 12 mm and 20 mm.
The manufacturing system combines layers of coloured powders into the body of the slab, perfecting the appearance down to its minimum details.
The slabs can be applied to walls, transformed to create decorative furnishing items or used as external cladding on bonded or ventilated facades.
All the Infinity products are made exclusively in Italy.
The Infinity slabs are the result of a combination of excellences: smart technologies, high quality raw materials, and a deep culture in surface design.
