Increasing demand for sustainable bathroomware inspired Aquatica to develop a special solid surface material, made of recycled seashells. Aquatica's extensive selection of exclusive bathtubs and washbasins are now available to buy online in AquateX™ Sleek Sandstone and Sleek Concrete, a brand new stylish and sustainable solid surface.
What is AquateX™ Sleek Sandstone & Sleek Concrete?
Aquatica created a premium solid surface with an exquisite terrazzo-like appearance, by combining recycled seashells with our award-winning
formula. Similar to real concrete and natural limestone,
Sleek Concrete and Sleek Sandstone
are rich in Calcium Carbonate, but these innovative AquateX™ derivatives are much lighter in weight. This makes it easier to transport and install bathtubs and wash basins made of Aquatica’s cutting edge material.
A Sustainable Solution Sourced From Seafood and Aquaculture farms
Each year, the seafood industry throws away over 7 million tonnes of seashells. Utilising discarded seashells is a smart way to tackle environmental waste issues, and make the most of these valuable biomaterials. Sleek Concrete and Sleek Sandstone are made by grinding down seashells, which would be otherwise destined for landfills.
How Does Aquatica Make Sleek Sandstone & Sleek Concrete?
Aquatica’s experts grind down seashells and then mix them with binding resins, pigments, and natural minerals and cast them into moulds. The mixture is left to solidify just like any other AquateX™ solid surface product.
Truly Unique Bathtubs & Washbasins Resembling Sandstone & Concrete
Each Sleek Concrete and Sleek Sandstone bathtub and washbasin is truly unique, due to different variations in the ground seashell sizes, quantity, proportions of ground fractions, textures and colours of the shell fragments.
AquateX™ Sleek Sandstone - Nature-Inspired Bathtubs
Inspired by the growing popularity of exclusive resorts situated in the desert, and designed to subtly blend in with the natural beauty of the great outdoors, Aquatica created AquateX™ Sleek Sandstone. This stunning solid surface reflects the natural beauty of the world’s most captivating landscapes, from canyons, mesas, ridges and gorges to beautiful beaches. Bathtubs and wash basins made of AquateX™ Sleek Sandstone feature a natural sand colored terrazzo-like appearance, adding a natural feeling of glamour and elegance to the bathroom’s decor. AquateX™ Sleek Sandstone offers a timeless and versatile appeal, complementing a diverse array of bathroom styles.
AquateX™ Sleek Concrete- A Smarter Alternative To Real Concrete
AquateX™ Sleek Concrete™ is considered to be a smarter and more sustainable alternative to real concrete. Concrete is not really the best choice for washbasins and tubs, as it stains easily and particles can get stuck in between cracks. AquateX™ Sleek Concrete™ solves all of these problems, while featuring the same modern industrial aesthetics. Unlike real concrete, AquateX™ Sleek Concrete™ tubs and washbasins do not stain and do not require sealing. In the long run, AquateX™ Sleek Concrete is much easier to maintain than real concrete, as it will also not crack or develop fissures over time. Sleek Concrete is one of the best options for interior designers and homeowners, who are planning to design a bathroom with a cool urban appeal or industrial look.
