Surface Innovation: Redefining Boundaries of Interior and Exterior Spaces with Ultracompact Surfacing

Learn Over Lunch with Cosentino

Wednesday, February 15, 2023

This course examines the advantages of ultracompact surfaces in terms of life cycle environmental impact, strength, durability, chemical resistance, absorption, abrasion resistance, and ASTM testing. Design flexibility with ultracompact surfaces in terms of color, texture, and format is also discussed and possible interior/exterior application options are considered.

Learning objectives

  • Define ultracompact surfacing (UCS) and discuss the innovative production process that creates superior tile properties and reduced environmental impact.
  • Discuss the advantages of compact surfaces in terms of strength, durability, chemical resistance, absorption, abrasion resistance, and ASTM testing.
  • Discuss selecting UCS in terms of life cycle environmental impact, color, texture, format, and general design flexibility, as well as the various possible interior and exterior applications.
  • Identify key attributes of UCS, explaining how they influence material performance, safety, durability, and sustainability.
