Cambria presents 6mm extra thin quartz surfaces

Cambria is launching a thin and lightweight 6mm slab profile to its natural quartz surfaces that is fit for both commercial and residential applications.

The 6mm thickness retains the elegance and performance of Cambria quartz surfaces with added functional advantages and is a complement to the brand’s 1cm, 2cm, and 3cm slab offerings.

The extra thin slabs solve a need for commercial clients—in industries like healthcare, furniture, and luxury transportation like yachting and aviation—who routinely encounter weight-sensitivities in projects, as well as for residential clients looking for cladding options on fireplaces, backsplashes, and shower and tub surrounds, or for an answer to unique applications like cabinet veneering and backlighting.

“We’re excited to be leading the quartz industry not only with new technology and award-winning designs, but with revolutionary products and innovation,” said Arik Tendler, Chief Sales Officer for Cambria. “The 6mm product is the perfect opportunity to use Cambria designs in any weight-sensitive implementations. We cannot wait to get this product into the market as we are confident the demand is there.”

The 6mm slabs (which are the thickness equivalent of three stacked nickels) will launch in 10 designs in two finishes—Cambria Matte and high gloss. The 10 available designs are White Cliff, Whitehall, Swanbridge, Ella, Portrush, Brittanicca Warm, Skara Brae, Carrick, Buxton, and Blackpool Matte.

The release enters the market at a time when demand is increasing for modern thin countertops and special vertical cladding opportunities like walls, overhead applications, shower and tub surrounds, and elevators. The product works with mitered or reverse mitered edge profiles only, or Z profiles for any exposed edges.

In addition, multiple Cambria designs can be properly backlit and thermoformed (heated to a pliable forming temperature and formed to a specific shape) at a thickness of 6mm in commercial and residential settings.

Cambria is responsibly mined with every quarry site fully restored after quartz extraction, and the company states that it recycles 100 per cent of its water used in manufacturing and fabrication.

Cambria is Declare certified, is certified NSF-51 safe for use as a food preparation surface, and has achieved GREENGUARD Gold certification for low VOC emissions.
