THE MEANING
aggregates
Engineered stone or compound stone stands for all the surface materials made by binding sands or grits of different aggregates – such as quartz, marble, granite – with resin or cement or geo-polymer.

 
THE TECHNOLOGY
This is made possible by a specific technology: the vibro-compression under vacuum. This technology, patented by Breton in 1975, is called Bretonstone® and allows to produce engineered stone in form of big slabs or big blocks. 
THE PRODUCT
Today the most popular engineered stone is engineered quartz or quartz. 
These are big slabs made of quartz sands bound with polyester resin and mainly used in the fabrication of kitchen countertops, since they are extremely resistant to stains and scratches. 

 
THE FEATURES
The Bretonstone® technology implements an industrial process to produce engineered stone slabs – using either resin or cement as binder – with a high qualitative and performance standard. 

 
THE BRANDS
Behind every major brand and company in the engineered stone sector there’s Bretonstone® technology.
