INTRODUCING THE CIMENTO
SAI Industry’s CIMENTO is a concrete based mixture applied on panels of different materials. The aim is to keep the inherent strength of raw concrete, decreasing installation time and overall, weight.
The specially developed panels allow all of the material and expressive qualities of concrete to be enjoyed at Home or in a Workplace. The range of tasteful finishes can fit in perfectly with any furnishing and style requirements and make it quick and simple to give any setting a unique, original appearance. There are no limits to the possibilities for customization and a special technique means that an endless range of decoration is available; including reflective film copper and silver sheets, photographs and reproductions of textures.
From Le Corbusier, Kahn, and Scarpa to Tadao Ando, concrete has characterized most of the architecture of the 20th century, embodying more than the original structural functionalities for which it had been chosen.
The use of concrete became an expression of architectural poetry. CIMENTO® of Sai Industry is a concrete mixture with over 90% of its total weight consisting of cement and water. It is not painted or lacquered and is made from the natural elements of oxides, calcium, silicon, aluminum, iron, magnesium and phosphates. It is applied on substrates of different materials, to a thickness of few millimeters replicating the strength of concrete poured straight from a mould but produced in a shorter time and weighing considerably less.
Every panel of CIMENTO® can be considered unique. The individual attention to detail during the work process allows the resulting product to display the typical characteristics of concrete, such as patches, spots and streaks as well as the effects of time and the atmosphere.
As CIMENTO® finishes age, they are subjected to slow and gradual colour variations over time, similar to what happens with real concrete.
Type of Finishes:
Finish that replicates polished concrete, obtained from a silky - smooth mould. The concrete porosity is emphasized with small bubbles forming on the surface of the conglomerate.
Finish replicating irregular coarse concrete, arising from the use of chalky stone, clay and silicone sediments.
Finish that replicates planks of wood, obtained from a mould made of wooden slabs. It demonstrates the plasticity of concrete, with its capability to take its form from the wood veneer mould.
SUMMARY STANDARD SIZES
The panels come in a number of standard formats or they can also be made to measure in order to satisfy customers requirements.
Even during times of hardship; research, innovation and design continue to perform a creative function, with a focus on sustainability and turning traditional materials to account by reinventing them. SAI Industry’s CIMENTO® fits in perfectly with this new philosophy because 90% of the total weight of all of the finishes consists of concrete and water. The production cycle takes place at low temperatures, meaning little energy is used. During the production process, there is a constant check on waste. Most of it is recycled and reintroduced into the production cycle. This limits waste to a minimum, making the process highly efficient and environmentally friendly. A by-product-based sorting procedure is carried out for the little waste that does remain. It is managed by authorized waste transport and disposal/recycling professionals.
