MATERIAL description

NAME OF THE MATERIAL
Magma 04 ® Liquid Stone

MANUFACTURER
C37 (Material Development)
Padre Mier 1070 Col. Centro 64000 Monterrey, Nuevo León - México

MAIN USE

MAGMA 04 ® is used as a decorative material in a variety of applications; architecture, interiors, furniture, accessories, fashion and others. MAGMA 04 ® is distinguished by being identical in appearance and texture to basaltic stone. Its liquid origin allows organic shapes, and production by casting. It can also be manipulated with tools for metals and wood. MAGMA 04 ® is a material produced by C37 Material Development Studio.


COMPOSITION

MAGMA 04 ® is a material for solid surfaces. It is porous and heterogeneous. The formula is 23% inorganic compounds and 77% natural minerals.


services and products

PRODUCT DESIGN

We offer a service to help you design the product of your dreams. We have a team of designers and engineers,  together we can find the best solution to your project.

PRODUCTION SERVICE

We offer a holistic production service with MAGMA 04 ® from prototype to product. Send in the blueprints and 3D model to produce high quality products. 

CUSTOMIZED MAGMA 00. FORMULA. 

If your project requires new or different MAGMA 04 ® properties such as technical or aesthetic, feel free to hire our research and development service to produce a new version of our material to serve the technical needs of your project. 

Example: Develop a MAGMA 04 for car interiors, food design, sneaker soles...etc.


BENEFITS

IDENTICAL

Its color, texture and porosity looks the same as volcanic stone but it's formula allows it to be casted into organic forms. The texture is softer than the rock. 

LIQUID

It's original state is semi-liquid, allowing the material to create aesthetically interesting shapes, difficult to achieve with stone and other materials.

LIGHT

It is 20% lighter than basaltic stone.

It can also reach lower thickness without breaking, reducing the weight of your products, creating opportunities for new applications

COMPATIBLE

It's high adhesion allows it to ensamble with other rigid or elastic materials, generating new applications.

MAGMA 04 ® AESTHETIC ASPECTS. 

COLOR

The MAGMA 04® formula comes in a monochromatic and colored palette.

 
 

*If you want to develop a new color or a combination, we can develop it for you.

TEXTURE

MAGMA 04® texture can be personalized depending on the application and design needs, with a variation from highly porous to a smooth surface.

 

FINISH

Finishings as gloss or paint can be added to give a different look. Tone and texture may be personalized depending on the project's needs. 


 

DESIGN GUIDELINES

Rules and tips to follow in order to create successful products with MAGMA 04. 

 
 

MINIMUM OBJECT THICKNESS      

5.00 mm

Thickness limits may vary depending on the shape and size of the object.

 
 
 

MINIMUM EMBOSSED AND ENGRAVED DETAILS

5.00 mm

Applies to products that require molds, and may vary depending on design.

 
 
 

ACCURACY

± 3.00 mm

Finishes reduce final product size.

The perimeter of the model for casting must be 3.00 mm bigger than the final product to compensate for the finishes.

HANDLING AND CARE

Waterproof.
Not dishwashable.
Do not microwave.
Not oven safe.
*Ask for foodsafe finish
 

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

The behavior of MAGMA 04 ® may vary depending on its thickness, aesthetic and finishes.

The surface of MAGMA 04 ® can be restored with soft abrasive tools and cleaners, with the help of C37 team. Some stains can be easily removed with water and soft cleaners.

Damages caused by inadequate use may be consulted with C37 studio.

MAGMA 04 ® is an inert material. Under normal conditions of temperature, it does not emit gas. When burned, it mainly emits carbon gas, and produces a light-looking smoke.

The color is homogeneous. The porosity is only in the surface, making it a rigid material with no bubbles in the inside.

LIMITATION

Contact us for more information, even though MAGMA 04 ®  supports high temperatures, it must need protection with thermal insulation.

As MAGMA 04 ® is made up with natural minerals, it may have slight differences in shades between products. When porous, the surface can absorb substances and provoque stains in the product. Also some chemical products must not be used to avoid staining and damagind the product.  For example: Acid cleaners, oils.

The decay will depend on the contact time. When covered with a special coat, the product will avoid any damage.

*This limitations apply only to MAGMA 04 ®  formula and may be adjusted to specific needs*

INSTALLATION

SEALANTS AND ADHESIVES

MAGMA 04® is compatible with several adhesives and sealants in the market for metals, polymers and wood. Repairs, despite being well made and fully functional, may be slightly visible.

The most compatible adhesives are: resin and epoxy.

Screwing may be used for mechanical joints.
