Cristalceramic: your ally in the kitchen
The kitchen table is not only useful for eating but also as a workstation for study or for work. This is why it is important to know the new materials, cutting-edge products that allow us to make the most of the environment in which we live.
In recent years, manufacturers have invested heavily in the search for new materials that are both resistant, functional and aesthetically beautiful.
One of these products is cristalceramic, also known as glass-ceramic, laminam or super-ceramic.
What is Cristalceramic?
The cristalcermic is a material obtained from the coupling between glass and ceramic. The surface ceramic layer is coupled to a layer of glass or crystal, in this way the top is strengthened and made very resistant.
The cristalermic, glass – ceramic or super-ceramic offers an excellent mix of hardness and lightness, heat resistance and surface hygiene.
The material that derives from the coupling of glass and ceramic is also water repellent, oil repellent, resistant to acids, non-toxic and unalterable to UV rays.
The finishes of cristalceramic have an opaque and textured surface, with a wide range of neutral colors that can go from white to beige to dark gray.
Why choose a table with a cristalceramic top?
The table is the center of the house, one of the most widely used furniture: on the table top you can eat it, it becomes an additional work surface, it is a workstation and a pc or even an ironing board.
Taking this into account, it is important to choose resistant and durable materials over time, just like cristalceramic.
Its advantages are not only of resistance but also of hygiene: the waterproof surface is not porous and is completely non-toxic.
From the maintenance point of view, cristalceramica is easy to clean: it is not necessary to dry it continuously to avoid streaks, just hot water and neutral detergent are enough to keep a glass ceramic hob clean.
Superceramics at the service of the best brands
All the major furniture and design brands have introduced this innovative material in their table collections, alongside classic materials such as wood and glass, glass ceramic or Laminam, we see some examples:
Bontempi & Super – tops
