Apollo Slab Tech – Aesthetics
Points of note
Hob flange needs to sit on aluminium thermal insulation tape around cut-out, to avoid conducting too much heat and causing cracks in the worktop.
Can be made in blanks to adjust on site without compromising any of the above – oversize on the joints then trim to suit. Due to it’s acrylic based composition, Apollo Slab Tech will expand and contract by approximately 1mm per metre – the worksurfaces should not be tightly installed to allow for this movement. A fine layer of dust is inevitable for up to 24 hours after installation. We have fully qualified and vastly experienced installation teams throughout the UK to provide you with an excellent fitting service, if required.
Please note Apollo Slab Tech is batch processed and shades may vary between batches due to Apollo Slab Tech being a blank product.
Dark, heavily pigmented colours will show scratches, dust and ordinary wear and tear more readily than lighter, textured colours.
Apollo Slab Tech is a 20mm or 30mm solid, through coloured, resin filled material derived from natural minerals. Some colours will have random veining and swirls of toning and contrasting colours to have the “look” of Granite, however the base colour remains consistent from the same batch.
All veined Slab Tech joints are seamless but will be more noticeable than with the other colours, the veining will create areas of contrasting colour and veining where the material is cut. The end result will have a similar appearance to the joints achieved with natural Granite but with the advantage of being seamless and therefore being very easy to keep clean and safe.
