Large format slabs of Infinity to create worktops, kitchen tops and furniture

Infinity | The engineered surface is a new company specialized in the production of large format slabs for the realization of worktops, kitchen tops and furniture.  Born from the experience of the Concorde Group, one of the most important Italian manufacturers of ceramic floor and wall tiles, Infinity designs and manufactures large slabs of maximum size 1620×3240 mm, in thicknesses of 6 mm, 12 mm and 20 mm.

Large format slabs for surfaces with high technical performances

Infinity sheets are composed of mineral materials and exclusively natural raw materials that are synthesized at a temperature of 1230°C to create a new compact material with high technical performance. The company selects the best raw materials from controlled and certified quarries: quartz, feldspars, clays and kaolins are purified, atomised, pressed and brought to high temperatures to compose the body of the product and to create large format slabs with particularly original and refined textures and shades.

Large format marble effect slabs with through vein

Infinity has recently developed NaturaVeinTM Tech, an innovative technology to obtain large format slabs with a through vein able to recreate the effect of natural marble.
This technology allows to obtain, during the production process, a sedimentation of minerals in a controlled way, crossing the entire thickness of the slab and thus offering the possibility to recreate, at industrial level, the typical veining of a natural material such as marble, back in great trend in recent years.  Like natural marble, the design of the veins is completely random.
Infinity's NaturaVeinTM Tech technology can be applied to both 20 mm and 12 mm thicknesses. The NaturaVeinTM Tech technology slabs have enriched the Infinity collection of large format slabs with beautiful marble-effect surfaces with through vein that recall famous marbles.
Tundra Select is inspired by traditional grey limestone marble, Crystal Ice is inspired by Brazilian quartzite with its characteristic crystalline structures, while Crystal Amber is the warm version with golden reflections on an amber base.
Nero Granite recalls the aesthetics of South African granite while Travertino Grey is a Persian travertine in a contemporary version; Buxy Select is a blend of natural stones mixed to obtain a homogeneous chromatic effect. Finally, Precious Sodalite reproduces the rare and precious stone par excellence.

Intended use of large format slabs

The technical and aesthetic characteristics of the large format slabs proposed by Infinity make them particularly suitable for use in the kitchen. The large surfaces, the uniformity of the design and the simplicity of cleaning are winning elements to create kitchen tops and worktops. Infinity large format slabs are in fact easy to clean and do not require any specific treatment; for ordinary cleaning, simply wipe with a cloth moistened with water and neutral soap.
With a very low degree of porosity, easy maintenance and a very rich range of colours and finishes, Infinity slabs are also suitable for bathroom furniture, for the shelf, the sink, the floor or the shower walls creating a particularly refined continuity.
The great workability and low weight allow the use also for the creation of tables, tops, fireplaces and many other application solutions.
