LOTTE Chemical Expands Production Capacity

Posted on 25 February 2021 by cradmin

LOTTE Chemical announced the addition of a third engineered-stone production line at its Belenco plant in Turkey. The expanded production volume of the Turkish plant supplements LOTTE’s Yeosu plant in South Korea. The combined capacity of the two facilities is 22 million sq. ft. per annum.

According to LOTTE, the $30M investment in the new production line will ensure a stable and secure global supply chain for its engineered-stone products. LOTTE’s Turkish facility’s proven manufacturing capabilities are complemented by distribution efficiencies through the port of Izmir and access to ample raw materials from a nearby stone mine.

Acquired by LOTTE in March 2019, Belenco is the largest manufacturer of engineered stone in Turkey. The plant is located in Turkey’s Manisa OIZ industrial complex, on the outskirts of the city of Izmir. Belenco utilizes state-of-the-art, Breton manufacturing technology; a process that produces high-quality, technologically advanced engineered-stone material for the building industry. LOTTE has been a licensee of Breton technology since 2018, utilizing the process in the development of its popular Cirrus Collection of quartz surfaces.

LOTTE Launches Super Flex Technology

Posted on 13 October 2020 by cradmin3

The design possibilities for countertops and surfaces have expanded exponentially with Super Flex technology from Staron®. Demonstrating superior thermoplastic properties, surfaces made with LOTTE’s innovative Super Flex technology enable design of futuristic, functional surfaces ideally suited for creative uses in commercial, residential and public-space projects.

Unlike other formable technologies, Super Flex delivers a superior elongation rate, with a minimum radius of 0mm. This provides designers and architects increased design flexibility to create dramatic curves and never-before-attainable bending features.

High-performance architectural and interior applications include customized wall-cladding, kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities and furniture construction. Currently available in the Infinity shade of white, surfaces made with Super Flex technology can be fabricated with computer-controlled CNC machines to create precise 3D shapes. Like all Staron products, these surfaces are easy to maintain and ultra-hygienic.

“Designers and architects seek more than extensive collections of rich colors and patterns. They also need the flexibility to form surfaces into creative shapes that high-end residential and commercial customers desire,” stated John Kim, director, LOTTE Chemical Corp. “Super Flex technology represents the cutting edge of formable surface creation, delivering both design flexibility and unparalleled performance.”

LOTTE Introduces Evermoin Surfaces

Posted on 09 September 2020 by cradmin3

Ultra-hygienic Evermoin® surfaces from Staron® are now available to U.S. customers. Manufactured to suppress the growth of microbes, including common bacteria, Evermoin surfaces are specifically designed for environments requiring exceptionally-clean conditions such as healthcare facilities, retail establishments and high-traffic office environments.

The Evermoin line has received certification from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (US FDA 21 CFR 177.1010) and the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). Non-toxic Evermoin surfaces can be installed in most any interior space; from countertops, tabletops, bathrooms, and wall cladding, to furniture casework and office workstations. Two contemporary, neutral colors are currently available – Limpio and Ultra Bright – and can be cleansed simply with commonly available bleach solutions.

“We designed Evermoin to meet the growing need for technologies that provide and maintain cleaner, healthier environments,” stated John Kim, director, LOTTE Chemical Corp. “LOTTE continues to be at the forefront of research and development of ultra-hygienic surface technologies that will improve our overall health and wellness in the spaces we work and live.”

Testing of the Evermoin material demonstrated a proliferation inhibition rate of 99.9 percent or higher. Specifically, the Evermoin surface inhibits the number of surviving bacteria to fewer than 1,000 (1/1,000) after test specimens go through antibacterial treatment in a laboratory environment where the number of bacteria can multiply to 1,000,000.

Staron Adds New Colors to Supreme Solid Surface Collection

Posted on 08 September 2017 by cradmin

staronLOTTE Advanced Materials has added four new colors to the The Staron Supreme™ collection. This collection is a next-generation acrylic solid surface material that is distinguished by its free-form, marble-like patterns. The result is a natural aesthetic highlighted by visual “movement” in its design. Like all Staron products, the Supreme Collection is color-through and non-porous, providing a durable surface.

These colors are suitable for high-traffic, commercial-use applications such as food service and hospitality, healthcare, corporate environments, as well as residential. With four new colors, the Staron Supreme collection by LOTTE Advanced Materials has expanded to a palette of fourteen colors. The four new color options are: Morning Sky; Cotton White; Beige Granite; and Urban Grey.

In addition, the Supreme Collection offers fabricators and designers a material that is capable of being shaped into virtually any configuration. The surface can be laser-cut and back-lit, thermo-formed, and applied vertically as well as horizontally.

Staron is reportedly simple to clean and ultra-hygienic and nonporous, so moisture, mold and bacteria cannot penetrate. Those features also make Staron suitable for medical clinics, hospitals and other health care facilities, because it easily withstands frequent cleaning and is inherently sanitary while also providing a tactile design element.
