NAME OF THE MATERIAL
Magma 04 ® Liquid Stone
C37 (Material Development)
Padre Mier 1070 Col. Centro 64000 Monterrey, Nuevo León - México
MAGMA 04 ® is an advanced material with a variety of applications; architecture, interiors, furniture, accessories, electronic products, fashion and others. MAGMA 04 ® is distinguished for being identical in appearance and texture to basalt stone. Its liquid origin allows precise and faster production. After it is hardened, it can be transformed with 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 porous and heterogeneous. The formula is 23% inorganic compounds and 77% natural minerals.

If your project requires new or different MAGMA 04 ® properties such as technical or aesthetic, feel free to hire our Material 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.
looks like stone
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.
It's original state is semi-liquid, 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, creating opportunities for new applications
It comes in a variety of colors from gray, ceramics and any personalized color.

MAGMA 04 ® AESTHETIC ASPECTs
Choose a color from the MAGMA 04® Colors palette developed by C37.
*If you want to develop a new color or a combination, request our material development service.
MAGMA 04® has two main textures: High porosity and Low porosity. Choose the texture depending on the look, feel and functionality of your product.
Rules and tips to follow in order to create successful products with MAGMA 04.
MINIMUM OBJECT THICKNESS
Thickness limits may vary depending on the shape and size of the object.
MINIMUM EMBOSSED AND ENGRAVED DETAILS
Applies to products that require molds, and may vary depending on design.
± 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
Do not microwave.
Not oven safe.
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 smoke.
The color is heterogeneous. The porosity is only in the surface, making it a rigid material with no bubbles in the inside.
Under normal conditions, MAGMA 04 ® supports up to 100º celsius.
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 damaging 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*
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.
AVAILAbILITY AND COST
Remember to contact C37 to schedule an appointment to review design, cost and time of production
Every project is different. Cost of production depends on number of objects needed, design and finishes. Contact C37 Development Studio for an estimation of the cost of your project.
