It has always used state of the art production technologies.It is made in a whole homogeneous with machinery and technologically advanced systems, capable of giving very high pressure to the basic material making it very compact, not very absorbent, no frost, shock resistant and resistant to compression.
It is composed of a single homogeneous pressed body (300 kg/cmq) using supercements (R = 52.5) and volcanic material from Etna (ETNA SERIES) or granulated Sicilian marble (B.S SERIES). Its use is excellent for exteriors, interiors and coatings.

THE MONOSTRATO VULCANICO OF ETNA satisfies all the technical requirements demanded by Law for outdoors floors (Marking CE - UNI EN 13748-2).

SLABS WITH MACHINED EDGE


FIMAS is pleased to present an important novelty that makes the Volcanic Monolayer more and more appreciable. This is a specific process carried out in the upper edge of the slab, which allows the slabs of Volcanic Monolayer to be laid with a dry laying system, for light vehicular use, avoiding surface contact chips.
This process can be carried out in sizes mms. 400×400 and mms. 200×400 and in thicknesses 50-60-80-100 mms, on all available finishes.
