About Sistine Stone
What is Sistine Stone™?
Sistine Stone is a material that is made of a proprietary blend of quartz, granite, and a UV inhibited polyester-acrylic resin which produces a natural stone look and rustic finish. This natural stone look is provided by the combination quartz and granite, while the resin bonds, strengthens and seals the stone.
How are Sistine Stone products created?
In order to form showers and other products, Sistine Stone material is mixed in liquid form and poured into one piece casts. Because they are created as single pieces, all Sistine Stone products are non-porous and homogenous which adds strength and also resists the growth of mold and mildew.
How does Sistine Stone compare to other materials?
Sistine Stone material is not as brittle as materials like porcelain or ceramic, and it is also 100% repairable should chipping or cracking ever take place. Unlike stone products, Sistine Stone does not absorb liquids so it resists stains.
How is the maintenance of Sistine Stone?
The stone is naturally waterproof and will not absorb spills or soil, simply wipe away soil or spills with a damp sponge. Periodic cleaning with a sponge and warm, soapy water will remove any build up of dust or grime.
DO NOT CLEAN SISTINE STONE WITH PAINT THINNER, ACETONE, LACQUER THINNER, M.E.K. or Other chemicals that attack the structural integrity of Resin Based Stone (including, but not limited to acetone). Use of these chemicals will destroy the surface of the stone and void your warranty. Soapy water, ammonia based cleaners or commercially available solid surface cleaners will remove most dirt and residue from all types of finishes. Stubborn residue will require a little stronger cleaner. Superficial scratches or chips can be repaired by simply sanding and/or polishing.
What does Sistine Stone look like?
All of our Sistine Stone products are custom made and hand-crafted to look and feel like authentic travertine. As you may know, travertine is a form of limestone that has been under pressure for thousands of years. Travertine is a beautifully banded and colored stone with a unique character. Among its most appealing characteristics are the interesting craters and depressions, created by streams of water that flowed through the stone.
We have taken great care in reproducing the appearance of genuine travertine stone, including the craters and depressions to give it a beautiful and authentic look. Just like real stone, Sistine Stone™ is designed to have a warm, inviting look and feel.
