IDYLIUM, Mineral Stone with the beauty of nature.
IDYLIUM is a new mineral stone that revolutionizes the ceramic sector. IDYLIUM should not be called ceramics as it is a sintered stone. Where ceramics consist of fired clay with a top layer of print, sintered stone is a new technology that imitates nature. It takes hundreds of millions of years for nature to give a stone the beauty it possesses, IDYLIUM makes the same kind of product in less than 90 minutes. That’s why Kayden doesn’t call IDYLIUM ceramics but Mineral Stone. At this moment IDYLIUM has 40 colours which are divided into 5 colour groups.
Mineral Stone is a sintered stone in which grains of material are heated in such a way that they do not melt and parts of the stone adhere to each other in liquid form. The contact points between the grains grow together to form a new hard material. Mineral stone is baked at 1250 degrees Celsius, where in addition to the heating process, also the cooling process is important, in order to remove as much tension from the material as possible.
What are the raw materials?
- Materials of granite origin. Especially quartz and feldspar. These are the components that give hardness and durability to the material.
- Glass minerals and silicate. These materials are needed to guarantee perfect chemical stability.
- Oxides of natural origin. These are used to develop all colour variations.
