The Solid Surface
for efficient architectures
The Azanite® sheet
MATERICAis the latest generation of exterior cladding sheetmade of Azanite®, an innovative material based on acrylic resins developed by our research laboratories, ideal for ventilated facades.
With its smooth, even surface, it meets the highest standards of quality, aesthetics, functionality and performance, offering multiple advantages over conventional materials.Used for ventilated facades, it protects the entire building, providing a high degree of thermal insulation and thus reducing the energy requirement for air conditioning.
Technology and durability
Lightweight and resistant, MATERICAis an inert material, not subject to deformation or expansion.Based on an exclusive formulation and produced with advanced technologies, it hasextraordinary technical characteristics
Fireproof and scratchproof, it resists the corrosive action of salt and is insensitive to UVA, UVB and UVC rays, guaranteeing colour stability over time.
When subjected to thermal stress, it acquires additional mechanical strength.Maintenance-free, it is easy to clean and even allows the removal of graffiti damage without leaving any traces.
Flexible and resistant
MATERICAis a unique material: it resists low and high temperatures, exposure to weathering and UV radiation, which is particularly important when the façade is exposed to intense levels of sunlight.
Available in sheets of various thicknesses, it is easy to machined and can be transformed into an infinite variety of shapes without visible joints.It is easy to install, as it is available in sheets that are compatible with the main fixing systems on themarket.
Resistant to acid or salt aerosols, stable in all weather conditions.
Antibacterial and water-repellent: the surface is inhospitable to bacteria and inhibits their proliferation.
Complies with fire regulations, class B, s1, d0 (EN 13501-1).
High impact and abrasion resistance.
UVA and UVB resistant
High resistance to UV radiation and weathering.Immune to ageing by UV exposure.
Ideal for ventilated facades
From idea to form
MATERICApanels are arranged for installation using the best anchoring systems on the market, in both concealed or exposed fasteners versions.
The modular system offers the possibility to quickly createhighly efficient and aesthetically pleasing ventilated facades.
The ventilated facade
The ventilated façade is one of the most effective external cladding technologies for protecting against moisture and weathering and for improving thermal and acoustic insulation.
The external cladding protects the masonry from weathering, keeping it dry and eliminating the risk of detachment and infiltration.
Ventilated rear cladding
The design principle is to screen out rainwater.
As the panel joints are not sealed, small amounts of water could enter the cavity behind the panel.
The cavity is ventilated by ventilation gaps at the bottom and top so that moisture evaporates naturally thanks tothermal action.
Find your color
MATERICAoffers extreme freedom of composition thanks to a wide range of standard colours, suitable for many architectural contexts with a pleasant visual effect. They can be further customised by choosing between a satin or glossy finish. Additionalcolours and effects are available on request, in a variety of shades from neutral to bright. The exclusive production technique makes it possible to obtain infinite possibilities of nuances, from white to full colour, up to hyper-realistic textures of stones, marbles, granulates and veins.
Type of sheet
Size and shape
Produced from special synthetic monomers through a mould casting process, it comes in sheets of extraordinary quality and purity, with perfect finishes and natural colour rendering.
Standard panels are available in sizes 700×1000, 700×2000mm, and cut to size in a wide range of sizes up to 2100×1500mm, with thicknesses of 6, 8, 10, 12 mm.
MATERICA panels comply with fire regulations and are certified Class B-S3-d0, in accordance with European Commission Decision 2000/147/EC of 08/02/2000; they comply with the Environmental Criteria for Sustainable Construction (CAM).
MATERICA can be thermoformed into angular and curved shapes of various widths: angular, curved and bevelled profiles that offer a high degree of freedom in architectural composition.
The high degree of finish of the panels, which are already prepared for coupling with the frames, makes it possible to obtain precise installations, fitting perfectly without visible joints to edges and frames.
