Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Hebel is a lightweight autoclaved aerated concrete which is completely cured, inert and stable form of calcium silicate hydrate. It is a structural material, approximately one quarter the weight of conventional concrete, composed of minute cells which give the material light weight and high thermal insulation properties. It is available as blocks and pre-cast reinforced units, i.e. floors, roofs, walls and lintels…
Concrete Canvas is part of a class of construction materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs). It is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric that harden on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof and fire-resistant concrete layer. It is used in channel lining, slope protection, bund lining, remediation of existing concrete structures, and culvert lining.
Hebel Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is manufactured by Everite. AAC as a building material has gained a considerable share of the international construction market since its inception in 1923 in Sweden and today maintains its reputation of the building material of the future.

SLATE: A fine: grained, foliated, metamorphic rock which splits along its parallel cleavage plains. The vast range of colours is derived from the minerals contained in the shale from which it was formed
LIMESTONE: Calcareous rock in the widest sense. In Anglo-Saxon nomenclature this term is often used to distinguish a non-crystalline marble, (namely a calcareous stone = limestone) from a crystalline metamorphic stone = marble).
Sandstone: Calcitic sedimentary stone, made up primarily from fragments of detritus and mineral granules, having dimensions between 1/6mm and 2mm. There are a great number of types of Sandstone depending on the genesis, structure and composition: eolianite, arkose (feldspathic -quartz sandstones) and lithic arenites (which may also be calcareous containing calcite or aragonite), etc.
Travertine Collection: Carbonatic sedimentary rock of chemical origin, with a characteristic cemented of vacuolar structure. Travertine originates due to precipitation of calcium carbonate from saturated water which leaves voids in the stone which is a characteristic of all travertine. These voids are usually filled.
Union Tiles Marble Collection – Stone is the natural construction material par excellence: man has dealt with it from his origins, producing weapons, tools, trinkets, but also building shelters and fences for his protection. The millenary ties between stone and the history of mankind originated with an epochmarking passage, when stones lost their “natural shapelessness” and were “configured”, to follow the aspirations of a construction that was destined to become Architecture, Art, Symbolism and a Wonder for man. Throughout history, in fact, marble has been used in many applications, but one of its highest and most sublime contributions has been within the ambit of architecture, increasing numbers of architects and designers have a predilection for stone because of to the many aesthetic renderings it can take on: modern finishing, which is possible with the use of machinery that employs advanced technologies, allows man to satisfy even the most creative requirements.
