Where does AWANTYS produce AWYSTONE® articles?
AWYSTONE® articles are produced in Turkey.
Is AWYSTONE® available for standardized designs only or also for client-specific designs?
Since all AWYSTONE® components are manufactured invidually, there is no differentiation between standardized and customized designs.
Is AWYSTONE® food safe?
Since an AWYSTONE® component is made of a 100% natural material which contains a lot of minerals, it is not food safe. That is why AWANTYS always uses inserts from food safe materials (i.e., plastics, biocompound), which contain and protect the bulk.
Can AWYSTONE® articles be decorated?
Yes, AWYSTONE® articles can be decorated with tampon, silk-screen or digital printing as well as with hot foil stamping.
Can AWYSTONE® articles be colored?
AWYSTONE® articles cannot be colored. Due to their natural structure both marble and granite have an invidiual color which cannot be changed. Beyond, due to its natural origin marble and granite do also exhibit color and structural differences within the same material batch which also visiually express their natural origin. Unlike for other materials, these differences are not a sign of poor quality but express the high value of a natural product. As a result, each piece is a truly unique specimen.
What is the minimum wall thickness of AWYSTONE® components?
The minimum wall thickness depends on the specific type of marble or granite chosen. As a rule of thumb, marble's minimum wall thickness is 3.0 - 3.5 mm, while that of granite - due to its more brittle structure - is roughly 4.0 mm.
Which types of surfaces can be realized with AWYSTONE®?
Both marble and granite can be delivered with a mat or polished surface. The softer and more porous the specific material type, the lower the gleam.
Can there be embossed artworks on an AWYSTONE® article?
Yes, embossed artworks are feasible.
