Mineral material: Sentec by Laufen

Sentec by Laufen
Sentec is a mineral material that can be used for bathtubs and shower trays.

Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen launched Sentec, a mineral material that can be used for bathtubs and shower trays. Sentec combines a multitude of product properties. The name, which is a combination of the words “sensual” and “technical”, captures the advantages of the material. Since Sentec is repeatedly polished, its surface feels warm to the touch. It also has non-slip properties. Sentec can be produced in various colors. In addition, the Sentec surface is anti-bacterial, resistant to chemicals and UV-resistant.

A further advantage of Sentec is the possibility of reworking products made of the material at a later date. Thus surfaces made of the material can be cut to size individually, or the fitter can make holes for faucets using conventional tools. With the assistance of a repair kit, even light damage, scratches or stains can be repaired.
