MSI Introduces LumaLuxe Technology

Posted on 14 January 2021 by cradmin

MSI has introduced Q with LumaLuxe. The material has the same qualities that make Q quartz a durable and beautiful surface, but with next generation technology that enhances the realism and depth.

These new technological advancements in the manufacture of quartz slabs result in a product that is more realistic than ever, with superior visual qualities:

  • Superior Whiteness: Lumaluxe is available in several different color variations, but the white shades are a purer, brighter white that will catch the light and make the room feel airy and opulent.
  • Dramatic Veining: Unlike many other marble-look surfaces, the veining in Lumaluxe does not just appear on the surface, but runs through the entire slab, so the countertops are more realistic than ever. Part of natural marble’s appeal is its endless variation, while manufactured surfaces are more consistent in pattern. Lumaluxe’s dramatic veining, however, appears authentic no matter how large a space it covers.
  • Increased Depth: In a countertop, depth refers to what lies beneath the very top surface, catching and reflecting the light. Lumaluxe’s exclusive formula creates a surface with a slight transparency, just enough to add amazing, eye-catching dimension and character.

According to the company LumaLuxe is a breakthrough in Quartz surface engineering that enhances the way light interacts with the Quartz surface. It is an exclusive MSI formulation that enhances the countertops’ beauty, improving shine, dimension and drama, with colors and patterns you can’t find anywhere else. Q with Lumaluxe is manufactured using internationally patented Bretonstone® system of Breton S.p.A., Italy, as well as state-of-the-art manufacturing systems across the globe.

As with MSI’s other premium quartz countertops, Lumaluxe is waterproof, stain- and mildew-resistant and food-safe.

MSI Partners with Spectrum Quartz

Posted on 17 December 2019 by cradmin

MSI has announced the establishment of a joint venture with Spectrum Quartz to create a quartz slab manufacturing production facility in the United States.

In May of this year, Spectrum Quartz (part of Hirsch Glass Corporation) announced plans to build a quartz manufacturing plant on a 42-acre site in Latta, South Carolina. MSI and Spectrum Quartz subsequently discussed combining the manufacturing expertise of Spectrum Quartz with the financial backing and sales and distribution network of MSI.

The team has been working tirelessly over the past several months to transform the existing 360,000 sq. ft. building into a state-of-the-art quartz manufacturing facility. The first two quartz lines are slated to begin test production later this month, with commercial production expected in the first quarter of 2020. Two additional lines will be operational shortly thereafter with ample space for further expansion. The venture is expected to create hundreds of jobs and give a significant boost to the economies of Latta and Dillon County as a whole.

According to Rup Shah, President of MSI, “The future for quartz manufacturing in the United States is very bright. The demand for quartz continues to grow at double digit rates as quartz takes substantial market share away from other countertop surfaces. Even with this investment in manufacturing, demand will continue to exceed supply for the foreseeable future. We expect to focus on producing colors catering to the luxury segment of the market, adding to MSI’s diverse palette of approximately 100 colors of Q Premium Natural Quartz. We believe that the combination of Spectrum’s manufacturing expertise and MSI’s unparalleled sales and distribution capabilities will create the leading North American quartz manufacturer.”

Shah added, “We have worked with Alex Xie, President of Hirsch Glass Corporation and Spectrum Quartz for several years and we quickly realized the enormous potential of both parties working together on this venture. We share a common vision for the future of the U.S. quartz market as well as common core values. In addition, Spectrum Quartz not only has incredible manufacturing expertise but also patent protected technology that will allow us to create the next generation of innovative colors and designs.”
