NAME OF THE PRODUCT
Magma 04 ® Liquid Stone
C37 (Material Development)
Padre Mier 1070 Col. Centro 64000 Monterrey, Nuevo León - México
MAGMA 04 ® is a composite used as a decorative material in a variety of applications in architecture, interior, furniture, accessories, fashion and others. MAGMA 04 ® is distinguished for being identical in appearance and texture to basaltic stone. Its liquid origin allows the achivement of organic shapes in products and design. It is produced by casting and can be manipulated with production tools for metals and wood. MAGMA 04 ® is a material produced by C37 Material Development Studio.
MAGMA 04 ® is a material for solid surfaces, it is highly porous and a heterogeneous formula 20% inorganic compounds and 80% natural minerals.
services and products
We offer a holistic production service with MAGMA 04 ® from prototype making to product. We can assist you in the design process and create your model, cast and products. We reduce production errors by ensuring precise detailing & professional quality.
Send your ideas and we will guide and co-design them with you, we count with a team of experts and designers. From field investigation to concepts and finished products, together we can find the best solution to your project.
R&D MAGMA FORMULA JUST FOR YOU.
If your project requires new or different MAGMA 04 ® properties, 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 00 for car interiors, food design, sneaker soles...etc.
Its color, texture and porosity looks and feels the same as lava stone but it's formula allows it to create impossible things.
It's original state is liquid and casted, allowing the material to create aesthetically interesting shapes, difficult to achieve with stone and other materials.
It is 20% lighter than basaltic stone.
It can also reach lower thickness without breaking, reducing the weight of your products and opening opportunities for new applications
It's high adhesion allows it to connect with other rigid or elastic materials, generating new material opportunities and uses. It can be dipped over other materials.

Rules and tips to follow in order to create successful products with MAGMA 04
MINIMUM OBJECT THICKNESS
Applies to products that require moulds
MINIMUM EMBOSSED AND ENGRAVED DETAILS
Applies to products that require molds, and may vary depending on production process
± 3.00 mm
Finishes reduce final product size.
The model for casting must be 3.00 mm thicker than the final product.
HANDLING AND CARE
Not food safe.
Not dish washable.
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 supervision of manufacturer for warranty. Some stains can be easily removed with water and soft cleaners.
Damages caused by inadequate use, can be repaired by manufacturer without completely replacing the product.
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 that does not contain toxic gases.
The color is homogeneous in all its thickness and it’s porosity is exterior making it a rigid material with no bubbles in the middle.
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 can stain or damage it, for example:
The decay will depend on the contact time. When covered with a special coat, the product will not suffer any damage. Acid cleaners must not be used to prevent them from damaging the product.
*This limitations apply only to MAGMA 04 ® formula, it can be adjusted to specific needs*
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.
AVAILAbILITY AND COST
MAGMA can be purchased in sheets or production through the suppliers. Calling 8115449816 or sending an e-mail to to contact you with the customer attention area of C37 Material Development Studio.
*Producing with MAGMA 04® takes up to 3 months. Remember to contact C37 to schedule an appointment to review design, cost and time of production
Cost of production depends on design, thickness, size and finishes. Contact C37 Development Studio for an estimation for your project.
