Why Corten is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?

This means the realm of new applications unlocked for these lightweight products is extremely broad, encompassing vast projects. From wall cladding to layering kitchen cabinets, ceilings or even furniture.
Sintered-stone, commonly known as ceramic or porcelain, is predominantly utilised for kitchen worktops. It’s the supreme properties that truly make them stand out. Ceramic worktops are exquisitely simple to clean and maintain; they can withstand mechanical damage; but above all, their heat resistance is matched by granite alone. After all, these products are wrought by the fusion of vast additives: powdered quartz, ground minerals, waste raw materials and other heat-resistant particles. As such, the boiling water, hot oil, burning pots and pans won’t bring ceramic worktops any harm.
The metallic effect Corten kitchen ceramic worktops are made to provide its users comfort and an ease of cooking. Their sole purpose is to withstand and endure the risks brought about by everyday use of kitchen facilities. Today, ceramic kitchen worktops are one of the strongest kitchen countertop options on the market. And a remarkable decor alternative to fragile paint, tiles or wallpaper.
What thicknesses are available for Corten?
The slabs of Corten by Marazzi are available in 12mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
Any stone surface available in 12mm (or under) is also ideal for wall, kitchen cabinet or even furniture cladding. These thin surfaces are equally as strong as their thicker counterparts, except their weight is severely reduced.
Consequently, they are superb products used to clad ceilings, walls, stairs as well as bathtubs, bathroom equipment, swimming pools or other waterproofed areas. Thanks to their low-weight attribute, they are likewise utilised to decorate furniture, or more commonly kitchen cabinets. These fragile elements benefit from the low mass as their delicate hinges and fittings don’t buckle under the weight. Meanwhile they are continuously protected from dirt, grime, or unintentional scratches, making them very desirable.
What makes Corten so unique?
Product colour description:
A rusty colour, like on this Corten ceramic, is exceptional and rare, inspired by the raw, red colour of oxidised iron. Many people adore this vintage, industrial look. And thanks to stone kitchen worktops, now they can safely incorporate it into their kitchens, without involving the dirty, unsafe and unhygienic genuine rusted metal. These rustic tones sublimely coexist among contemporary and traditional furniture. But above all, when worked into kitchen countertops, they draw the eyes of every beholder.

What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
‘Matte’ finish of the rusty Corten by Marazzi is defined by the rough-to-touch texture. Our matte products are deprived of the glossy reflection, the customary quality of most granite worktops and quartz worktops. Instead, they are characterised by a coarse, unpolished layer, more representative of natural stone surfaces. Thanks to their unique ‘organic’ texture, matte surfaces are made for those who appreciate the unrefined, cool feeling of stone.

Their ‘The Top’ collection is filled with fascinating designs, namely the metallic effect Corten, that absorbs your attention and captivates the mind.
