Our tiles are produced with high tech machineries; the result is a product that is within very tight tolerance standards, and therefore very manageable and light weight, making the lay out easy.
These are the phases of product cycle:
- Sawing the block
- Cutting slabs in strips of the required width, thickness 3 cm (for finished pieces of 1 cm)
- Splitting of strips
- Filling with resin and drying with UV rays
- Polishing or other finish
- Abutment (to make finished pieces square)
- Again calibration on sides of tile (rectifying)
Our products are followed and monitored all through the entire product cycle (from the marble blocks to the finished tile), based on market’s and single customer’s requirements.
We use specific technologies to take out dampness from marble, thus facilitating selection based on background color of single pieces.
Finished product thus obtained lies between minimun allowances of acceptance (+/- 0.5 mm) in thickness, length, width and squareness.
Consumables (diamond tools, abrasives, etc…) used are supplied only by specialized vendors , who test their products in our factory in order to adjust them to our processing and materials.
Tradition and quality
Tradition is important for 2P. Tradition is to be in touch every day with a material, marbles and marble slabs that’s not, as it might seem, cold and inanimate, but pulsing with own life, rich of history and unique characteristics. Each block of marble is unique, each one is different from the previous one in the veins that cross it, in its peculiar color, in those “defects” that very often make one block less valuable than the other, but that are the unrepeatable expression of the hand that carved it into the mountain.
There’s no block like another one, and this is for us a reason of great respect when we come close to this material that is million years old, and that we have to turn into a product that must be as much unique and valuable.
Tradition is to think of those who touched these stones before us, of the ancients that first made out of these temples, statues, immortal figures that are part of our culture, of our roots. Let’s think of the old churches that constellate our territory, where marble is the ideal container to the places’ and thoughts’ sacredness.
For this reason the marble slab is tradition also in a territorial meaning, because it comes from our mountains and it’s here that marble has always been quarried and processed, and it is here that we think it finds its highest expression, respectful also of its nature, not only in a commercial way.
At the same time, 2P is a modern company, that lives in XXI century, in the Internet era and knows it has to face an extremely demanding and competitive market.
That’s why our productive standards are high level: our marble floors have highly refined technical characteristics, such that they can be compared to ceramics for what concerns calibration, square, bevelling and finishings. Selection of our marble slabs is made with great accuracy and constantly monitored to adapt it to the customer’s needs. Pictures are of great importance in today’s market and we well know it: we have a photographic archive of each single crate produced, has it been shipped or stored in the warehouse.
