Vasta Stone – a premium brand producing sintered stone – is setting the standard for upscale building materials in Vietnam.
The brand was launched in the Vietnamese market earlier this month. With imported Italian technology, Vasta Stone is able to produce the largest sizes of sintered stone and has established itself as a market leader in the nation.
The term "vast" or "extensive" in Italian is "VASTA." The name reflects the unprecedented size of the stone, which is available in thicknesses from 6-20mm and in dimensions of up to 320 x 160cm.
One of the most cutting-edge production lines in the world, the SACMI Continua+, is applied to make Vasta stone. The technique combines a sintering system with MDX – a fuel-optimized, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective process control system that guarantees thickness and density consistency.
Because of its appeal, adaptability, usability, and suitability, sintered stone of any size is a preferred building material. It is created using state-of-the-art technology, forming Vasta Stone in the same perfectly natural way stone and marble are formed. Great blocks of marble and granite take thousands of years to form, yet sintered stone can be made in a matter of hours thanks to SACMI Continua+.
Mineral and stone particles are selected based on colour, texture, and quality, and then processed with heat and pressure. The end result is a material that is extremely tough and durable, easy to maintain, and resistant to water, fire, stains, and scratches.
Vasta Stone's designs are a reflection of Italy's technological and fashion prowess and are created using the most advanced digital process and product-forming technology. The company has made sure that Vasta Stone is the absolute pinnacle of both Italian technology and the design thinking behind it.
Managing director of Vasta Stone Ranko Lukić stated, “Vietnam can now produce sintered stone that satisfies international quality standards, providing consumers and the building materials sector with unheard-of choices. Vasta Stone is positioned to become a leading brand, paving a way for Vietnam's building materials industry to keep pace with global movements and thrive in the future.”
With Vasta Stone, large-scale construction projects like fine dining restaurants, airports, shopping malls, and residential apartments will be able to scale up their designs, and Vietnamese architects and designers will be able to compete on an equal footing with their international counterparts.
