November 10, 2016
Sensa® by Cosentino, made from high quality natural granite, launches in Australia
Features revolutionary protective treatment that provides high stain resistance
New series of eight exotic granites now available in the market
The Cosentino Group – global leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for the world of architecture and design – has today launched its premium granite surface, Sensa® by Cosentino in Australia. The first series available in the market consists of eight new exotic granites.
Sensa® by Cosentino is revolutionary to the granite market due to its exclusive stain protection, Senguard NK. Where normally a porous material absorbs liquids, reducing its lifespan, this treatment alters the surface tension of granite, making it smaller than that of liquid and repelling, rather than absorbing liquid particles. The high resistance to stains means there is no need for daily maintenance.
Each slab of Sensa® by Cosentino is unique because of the exclusive veining by the hand of Mother Nature. The first eight exotic granites to be launched in Australia include Black Beauty, Glacial Blue, Orinoco, Colonial White, Indian Black, Ice Blue, Moak Black and Bianco Anticoare.
Black Beauty (polished): Perfect combination of gloss and matte
Black Beauty features a textured finish that perfectly combines the most exotic gloss and matte to provide a deep black granite with random white veining.
Glacial Blue: the more exotic side of silver
Glacial Blue features a polished texture and a silver hue that combine to make a crystalline appearance.
Orinoco: The wild side of granite
The granite Orinoco offers an incomparable aesthetic for its excellence in design and random wild veins, which are further enhanced by its bright polished finish. White, gold and copper veins are sometimes interrupted by silver minerals which stand out against an intense black background creating a unique and inimitable stage.
Colonial White: Spectacular white with a hint of red
Colonial White, with its polished finish, is an Indian granite with a white background that is contrasted with round accumulations of various sizes that stand out for their dark red colour.
Indian Black: Exotic dark intensity
With a bright polished finish, Indian Black offers a dark and intense granite throughout the entire volume. Its black background is interspersed occasionally with different and captivating clear veins, almost crystalline, which further enrich the aesthetics of the granite.
Ice Blue: Wild combination on a surprising white background
Ice Blue is a granite with a polished texture and has a striking white background, something very hard to find in this material. The black enclaves, together with cream or tan veins, offer a seductive and wild design in the final appearance.
Moak Black: The sheer elegance of an intense dark granite
The granite in its suede finish, has a matte and intense black hue that provides impressive result for its harmony, uniqueness and beautiful finish. The neutrality born of nature with this granite is characterised by exquisite elegance.
Bianco Antico: Unpredictable exotic compositions
The combination of a clear, grey and brown background of the granite Bianco Antico, with a polished texture, creates colour compositions giving it an unmatched exotic nature.
How does the Sensa® by Cosentino Senguard NK protection work?
A porous material absorbs any liquid by suction, thus reducing its life. however, the Sensa® treatment alters the surface tension of granite and makes it smaller than that of the liquid, providing effective protection as the liquid particles are repelled and are not absorbed. This treatment penetrates into the surface, becoming integrated by chemical bonding and resulting in an invisible protection that allows Sensa® surfaces to breathe. Moreover, this formula is also resistant to UV radiation, thus avoiding the colour from changing due to solar radiation.
Sensa® represents a radically new concept in the granite sector because it offers a definitive protection treatment to reduce the stainability of the material, always showing a visually attractive and unchanged result.
Cosentino Group processes and supplies the Sensa® granites in Cosentino Latina, the only manufacturing plant outside Spain and that is situated in the Brazilian city of Vitoria. Cosentino Latina operates one of the largest granite factories in Brazil, featuring cutting-edge equipment and technological and environmental processes.
