ZER0.3 by Panaria

A new dimension in ceramics
 

ZER0.3 is the result of exclusive "laminated stoneware" technology which results in slabs that measure 100x300x0.3 cm, a unique format which opens a  whole new world of possibilities to architects and designers. 

Panariagroup is currently the only firm in the world with the complete technological  know-how to produce large thin ceramic slabs.
The firm operates a production line that makes porcelain stoneware slabs (measuring 1X3X0.03 meters) which is connected to the atomization area and finally to the line where the product is cut and finished. This highly advanced production line is also equipped with roto-colours, digital decoration technology, gas oven and special selection machinery.
