Marmilame has been active in the stone cutting field since 1966, becoming a worldwide excellence in the production of saw blades for cutting granite blocks into slabs.
More recently, the company has decided to diversify its activity, starting a cooperation with a multinational chemical company specializing in the production of epoxy systems for the trading of epoxy resins to be used for the treatment and reinforcement of natural stones.
From the union of these 2 activities has born the project LITEST1: an innovative industrial process that allows for the creation of the thinnest sheets of authentic natural stone available in the market. The final result is a product that is at the same time ecological, extremely easy to use, and elegant in its numerous possible applications.
