MINERVA

minerva Logo RGB © Sylmar Technology LimitedMinerva is a 25mm solid worksurface made from a blend of the finest materials developed specifically for surfacing. The properties of these components combine to form a versatile practical material, with the appearance of real stone but without the associated cost or inherent drawbacks. In fact, minerva’s surface presents many benefits over stone such as virtually inconspicuous joints, aesthetically appealing and smooth feel.

COLOURS

Amazonia Brown

A delicate mid-brown with flecks of white, dark brown and grey, Amazonia Brown cleverly combines contemporary style with natural beauty to produce a timeless décor. (Price Group 2)

Black Granite

Black Granite has a universal appeal that is equally at home with kitchen units from gloss white through to wood grains of all shades.  The deep black background is offset by pearlescent particles and metallic flecks. (Price Group 2)

Caramel Crunch

Cocoa Brown

As it’s name suggests Cocoa Brown has a warmth that works well with a wide range of wood grains and neutral door colours such as latte and cream. (Price Group 2)

Copper Fleck

With a creamy white base, Copper Fleck balances beautifully particulates of grey and mid-brown alongside shiny elements of copper and mother of pearl.  Copper Fleck’s distinctive metallic tones work well with wood and dark greys. (Price Group 3)

Due to the nature of the particulate used in producing minerva® Copper Fleck solid worksurfaces, it is possible that some slight unevenness may be felt in the finished surface.

Desert Rock

With a refined yet smooth complexion interspersed with mild veining of grey and white, Desert Rock is both opulent and urbane when used with almost any colour or style of kitchen. (Price Group 3)

 

Fossil

Particles of silver and pearl combine in Fossil to bring a stunning new colour that will work with the majority of kitchen colours and designs. (Price Group 2)

Grey Crystal

with a light grey background, Grey Crystal uses a spectrum of flecks combined with crystal-like particulates to create a stunning décor.  With specks that shimmer and sparkle as light changes, this décor works particularly well with gloss dark grey furniture. (Price Group 2)

Ice Crystal

Minerva Ice Crystal uses a combination of an off-white background and a spectrum of flecks to ensure that this décor works with a wide variety of door colours. (Price Group 2)

Nimbus Grey

Deep grey tones with pearl and white flecks help Nimbus Grey make a strong statement especially with monotone kitchen designs. (Price Group 2)
