Worktop material

Whatever idea you have for your kitchen, Lube has the solution for you. While laminate is one of the most popular choices given the great value for money of tops made with this type of covering, composites, stoneware and ceramics in general are the most resistant and less demanding types in daily management. Natural materials like marble and granite are among the most prestigious and characteristic from an aesthetic point of view, especially in classical and contemporary style while stainless steel and glass play an undeniably important role in modern kitchens.

    The melamine laminate worktop is made of a water-repellent wood particle (E1 class)... panel with a high-pressure plastic laminate (HPL) coating. The decorative laminate, created by layers of paper impregnated with thermosetting resins, is subjected to the combined action of heat (>=120°C) and high pressure (>=5Mpa) giving the finished product mechanical, physical and chemical resistance, easy workability and great simplicity of maintenance. Available in various thicknesses, it can have different looks suitable for both classic and modern models, depending on the finishes chosen and the work performed (worktop post-formed edge, worktop square edge or inclined ABS1 edge).

  • Marbles

    Marbles are calcareous rocks that, due to dynamic... or contact metamorphism, have assumed a granular crystalline structure. They have moderate resistance to breakage, scratches and excessive rubbing. Contact with chemical agents or acid-based foods should be avoided. Porous like all natural stones, they absorb the substances they come into contact with. A good water repellent treatment, repeated periodically, slows absorption times and allows acting before the liquid penetrates into the stone. However, it does not offer any protection against the corrosive effects of acidic substances. Available with various profiles and different colours.
