The Product

Chromat™ is the product name for synthetically made granules used in the production of acrylic and polyester based solid surface materials, epoxy flooring, spray granite effects, BMC, DMC and SMC compounds.

The granules are made with NPG Isophthalic resin, a blend of Aluminium Tri-hydrate and non-organic pigments free from heavy metals.
The mixture is fully hot cured in a high temperature catalyst and oven system, at temperatures exceeding 160ºC, to produce a highly resilient, hard and stable product.

  After granulation, milling and pulverising through some of the most specialised and efficient machinery in the industry, the granules are then carefully classified into 12 sizes using ISO approved stainless steel screens, from the largest (15000µm) down to the smallest (106µm), for maximum control in assuring consistency of particle size, distribution and colour.
