DEFYING THE NATURE OF STONE.

Through the service of Research and Development of materials, C37 developed MAGMA 04®; a liquid stone material that enhances and defies the nature of stone, providing endless possibilities for the industry.

C37 generates possibilities by studying, recycling & re-designing new materials for companies by researching trends, experimenting, prototyping, testing and selling new materials that provide possibilities for the industry.

MAGMA 04®

MAGMA 04 ® is the first material developed by C37; A liquid formula that defies the nature of stone.

It enhances the Basaltic stone, better known as "lava stone" and it emulates it in appearance & texture. Its origin and manufacturing process, as well as its physical and chemical characteristics allows new applications that can't be obtained with the natural stone.  The formula is conceived in a semi-liquid state and transformed into solid state.

Unlike Basaltic stone, MAGMA 04® can be casted in a mold, allowing designers to create organic shapes & forms. The composite hardens in a short amount of time,  making production time faster than the natural stone. Details and finishes are handcrafted, creating unique products. This material allows other production processes include water jet cutting, chainsaw, routing and perforation with tungsten or diamond tip. 

Applications of MAGMA 04 ® include interiors and exterior tiles, jewerly design, fashion design, furniture, products, accesories and others to discover.
