Azul Platino by Levantina Granite
Azul Platino Granite Material Description
Azul Platino is a blue granite material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Levantina company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Azul Platino is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
Sturdiness, longevity and incredible heat resistance define granite worktops. Granite is a natural, volcanic rock full of compressed, melted and cooled down minerals that imbue this material with the renowned toughness. This is predominantly why granite is utilised for kitchen worktops, where cooking is constant and a threat of potential damage always looming.
With blue Azul Platino granite kitchen worktops, you won’t have to worry about scratches or indents – even the sharpest knives cannot impact the integrity of granite. The same applies for intense heat. Granite can withstand even the highest temperatures, so the worktop can easily work as a stand for that boiling pot of soup or the red-hot oven dish, with no damage inflicted.
If regularly impregnated, the mottled Azul Platino granite worktops also become water resistant. That means they will never warp, unlike wood or laminate worktops, nor stain or discolour. In almost every way, kitchen granite worktops are superior surfaces that aren’t only beautiful (as the sample above signifies), but are also functional tools that provide aid in the everyday kitchen life. Polish Granite are here to customise and adapt your natural stone into virtually any project. The possibilities for granite uses are infinite – this applies both to indoor and outdoor designs.
What thicknesses are available for Azul Platino?
The slabs of Azul Platino by Levantina are available in 20mm or 30mm 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.
What makes Azul Platino so unique?
Product colour description:
Blue, the primary hue of Azul Platino granite, is extremely rare among stone worktops. Only few others in our collection possess this colour, even the synthetic composites like quartz or ceramic. Blue is the shade of the sea and the sky. It can emanate tranquillity and stillness. This is a perfect calming colour for bathroom décor. For kitchen worktops, it matches lighter surrounding shades like light grey, pink or cream.
Material structure & composition:
Mottled patterns are a common feature on our stone product spectrum. Such is the Azul Platino material above, filled with speckles that disperse over the surface in irregular fashion, providing the worktop some depth and intricacy. Mottled stone products, whether man-made or organic, fit a whole range of spaces. But above all those traditional pubs or cottage-like interiors steeped with history and organic motifs.
Material recommended for:
- Traditional or historic spaces,
- Chopping boards,
- Fireplace surrounds.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The blue Azul Platino by Levantina can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
Levantina is a Spanish company, first founded in 1959, that specialises in the quarrying, distribution and sale of granite slabs, namely the mottled Azul Platino. Their main UK base is in Rotherham, where they arrange most nationwide shipment.
At present, the company supplies us with around 60 granite hues. You may pick anything from groovy, multicoloured patterns and abstract themes to colours more uniform in structure. Your selected slab is then transformed by our manufacturers into an array of possible projects. Our customers order Levantina products for granite worktops, flooring, wall-cladding and vast other applications. Wherever durability, reliability and strength of solid surfaces is required.
Besides natural stone, Levantina are developers of innovative synthetic surfaces named Techlam. Ceramic, porcelain materials that are a true delight to the eyes, and whose application range is even more extensive. Currently the Techlam palette extends to as many as 50 spellbinding hues and their incredible resistance is a testament to Levantina’s understanding of trends, customer demand and the general kitchen worktop market.
