Apollo® Ceramicá is a revolutionary new surface material, formulated specifically for exceptional performance and purity.
Impervious to all domestic misfortunes, Apollo® Ceramicá can withstand hot pans, abrasive cleaning,
direct chopping, staining, and discolouration from UV exposure.
Produced solely from specially selected minerals, chosen for their resistant properties, Apollo® Ceramicá is fully recyclable - as unlike Quartz it does not use resin binders. The material is sealed during manufacture and installation using a one-time chemically bonding treatment, which prevents any ingression of dirt, and resists staining.
Apollo® Ceramicá™ joints are finished with a small ariss to the top edge. Silicone sealant is applied to prevent water ingression.
Tolerance in Apollo® Ceramicá™ is ±2mm
Due to thermal expansion Apollo® Ceramicá™ can expand up to 1mm per metre. A gap of at least 3mm should be left at each end of the worktop when fitted and filled with decorators caulk. When Apollo® Ceramicá™ is joined to other materials (such as glass, steel or wood) an elastic type of adhesive, for example polyurethane, is required for expansion.
Any overhang extending more than 300mm must be supported.
Internal profile edges on all edge detail other than bevel edge must have a radius of at least 60mm. Bevel edges don’t have this constraint as they are hand finished.
Upstands should ideally be 100mm high, as material less than this height is extremely fragile. Upstands are not normally cut from the same slab as the worksurfaces, therefore an exact colour match is not possible.
Apollo® Ceramicá™ upstands are straight and rigid, gaps will be visible where there are variations in the wall profile. Plastering or tiling should ideally be completed after the worksurface installation.
Apollo® Ceramicá™ is scratch resistant but not scratch proof. Small scratches less than 25mm in length are considered within tolerance by the manufacturer and are considered acceptable.
Please specify the preferred undermounting of Stainless Steel Sinks. Silicone sealant may be rendered ineffective when plumbing the sink in, it is important that the sink is re-sealed by the plumber, or the 12 months guarantee will be invalid if the work is not carried out.
If a waste disposal unit is fitted to an undermounted sink after installation, additional support will be required, otherwise your warranty may be invalidated.
