Trend-setting in contemporary bathroom design, Catalano widens its product range with the introduction of 4 new satin shades on a selection of washbasins and WCs.
In addition to the black gloss finish - already available – now available are also pastel shades inspired by nature: from the deep white of corals, to the warmest shades of sea sponges, from
the blue of wild flowers to the soft green of a herb garden.
The new four colours have a refined satin finish that makes the product nice to touch.
"The eye desires grace and beauty,
but the green shoots of grain
more than either".
"A colour that calls man towards the infinite,
awakening in him a desire for the pure and,
finally, for the supernatural...".
"What seems grey
it is made up of clear nuances
that a welltrained eye easily guesses".
"The experience of colour
is a matter of cultivation (...)
The Eskimos have one word for red
but thirty for various whites…"
Our colors are the result of the careful research and the constant collaboration with specialized structures in this field, aimed to create unique products that last over time.
Catalano R&D have developed these new colours in-house, so they are exclusive and different from others available in the market provided by external suppliers.
To guarantee Catalano’s signature quality, the coloured products go through a single firing at high temperature - 1250 °- which gives them the same strength and durability properties of the Cataglaze gloss finish.
This delivers a significant difference in quality compared to the current methods of firing, which usually require a second firing at a lower temperature (800°).
The glaze developed by Catalano makes the satin finish easy to clean to guarantee maximum hygiene, unlike satin finishes provided by other manufacturers.
The satin colour WCs - green, blue, grey and white – have an external satin finish. To deliver the maximum hygiene and for easy cleaning, the interior (inside the pan) is glazed with Cataglaze®.
Bidets are finished in satin throughout the whole surface.
After the glazing phase, each Catalano satin product is tested for thermal shock resistance through three continuous cycles of progressive thermal shock, with temperature ranging from 110° to 180°.
The test the resistance against chemical agents, the glazed satin products are dipped in hydrochloric acid 5% solution and then in a sodium hydroxide 5% aqueous solution.
The new colours can be combined to suit the taste and needs of the end user and the creativity of designers. Washbasins and toilets with different finishes can be mixed and matched to create a unique look. A two-tone WC can be achieved by choosing a different colour for the pan and the toilet seat, and even by combining gloss against matt finish.
