TECHNICAL AREA

The constant research and development aimed at identifying new methodologies and innovative production systems has allowed Cotto d'Este to create a new highly technical ceramic material, KERLITE ultrathin ceramic porcelain.

Durable, lightweight, flat, flexible, simple to cut, drill and install, easy to clean, with outstanding aesthetic properties. It is ideal for the creation of buildings with new architectural design concepts, for both the public and residential sector, through the cladding of exterior façades, ventilated façades and raised flooring. It meets the high standards that designers demand in terms of technical and aesthetic performance, with a particular focus on energy-efficient buildings. In fact Kerlite is sustainable and is also now antimicrobial, thanks to Microban® technology. 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION

Owing to their lightness, all types of KERLITE are much easier to handle and transport than slabs of marble, granite and natural stone, which are much thicker and therefore much heavier. With an identical weight, the number of square metres transported is four times greater.

Another important feature of Kerlite is its extreme ease-of-installation: the material can be easily cut, shaped and drilled both by tile layers and by specialised craftsmen (stone cutters, glass-workers, etc.) using automatic machines and tools for porcelain stoneware, glass and marble.

Detailed information regarding installation and working with Kerlite is found in the technical manual which can be downloaded from the section "TECHNICAL MANUAL".

 

MAINTENANCE
AND CLEANING

The surface of Kerlite laminated porcelain, like glass, is non-absorbent, non-porous and free of moisture. Therefore it does not retain dirt and dust and does not allow mites to settle. Kerlite is therefore easy to clean and sanitize. 

In this section we have listed some precautions which should be taken and technical recommendations relating to the cleaning of our materials.
