Veined marble coatings from ICA

Materials are essential elements of interior decoration, but there is a growing tendency to reproduce them with coating products. The use of textured finishes creates a striking impact and lends itself to the most creative applications.

Among them is the marble effect, for which the ICA’s R&D laboratory has developed a series of colours that blend in optimally with the interior design, or only with certain details, or even with entire furnishing elements, giving rise to extraordinary combinations with lacquered and transparent finishes.

The developed cycles entail an extremely versatile spraying application phase and stimulate the creativity of designers, thanks to their decidedly elegant visual impact.

The veined marble effect is only one of the many marble varieties that can be reproduced with ICA coatings. Its veins can assume different shades and colours each time, yielding results that are often unique.

These applications can be personalised to the utmost degree to obtain ever-changing effects, just like natural marble, which would otherwise not be possible with other types of processes, such as printing on roll paper.

It reproduces to perfection the beauty of natural stone, featuring numerous creative solutions, including unique effects in an endless variety of colours. It can be extensively personalised with results that change every time.

These coatings are suitable for application on flat surfaces made of wood, glass and plastic; and offer excellent resistance to light of the various colours applied.
