ROCKLITE's delicate and durable products are a true expression of the Power of Beauty
A REAL BREAKTHROUGH IN CERAMICS
ROCKLITE ceramic mass is a proprietary formula that makes it possible to do things that were previously thought impossible.
ROCKLITE ceramic mass is a mixture of raw materials, the key ingredient of which is one of the most scratch-resistant minerals - corundum. With a hardness of 9 on the 10-point Mosh scale, it is second only to diamond. This is why products made of ROCKLITE mass are extremely delicate and yet durable at the same time. It is a dream come true for every designer and lover of applied arts.

THE TRIUMPH OF ROCKLITE TECHNOLOGY
Thanks to the durability of ROCKLITE ceramic mass, Cersanit is able to offer products whose resistance to mechanical damage is a class above that of traditional ceramic ware made of chamotte clay. From now on, if a bottle of perfume slips out of your hands, you will never have to worry about any damage to your washbasin.
Production ready for the challenges of future.
Ceramic ware, as a material of 100% natural origin, is clearly an environmentally friendly product. In addition, it does not discolour or distort, which is why ROCKLITE products are so valuable.
What makes ROCKLITE more environmentally friendly than other ceramic masses? It is the fact that less material is used to make the products and less energy is used to process them. By shortening the carbon footprint, we care about sustainable development and environmental protection. Minimalism, modularity and multifunctionality reign supreme here.
The reduction of dust during the production process and the absence of waste are also important factors. Nothing is wasted here - all raw material residues are reused in production.
All of this makes ROCKLITE a perfect fit with Cersanit's corporate social responsibility policy.
A REAL SUCCESS
Great achievements sometimes take time, persistence and consistency.
The material used to make ROCKLITE washbasins must be both durable and ductile. By the time the final formula was created, we had completed countless tests until finally, in 2017, we knew we had it!
Numerous tests were conducted under laboratory conditions, e.g. we checked how the washbasin would respond to 'falling ball' impact resistance tests. Would the material splinter, would it develop cracks, would there be an impact? The ROCKLITE material performed superbly in these tests.
Today's ceramic mass makes it possible to create things that until recently were considered impossible. We do everything to provide designers with material that allows them to implement projects that may seem unreal at the moment.
Great achievements sometimes take time, persistence and consistency. This was the case with the modification of the ROCKLITE ceramic mass formula, as our team of technologists worked on it for three years!

AWARENESS AND COMMITMENT
We had to learn ROCKLITE technology step by step.
It all started with market observation. It is potential customers who set the directions for development. The most demanding ones are looking for non-obvious solutions, and ROCKLITE technology is the best answer to their expectations because it allows us to offer ceramics with the most sophisticated shapes currently available in the bathroom industry.
When comparing ourselves to the competition around the world, we set specific requirements that we wanted the material to meet. This search was carried out in many different ways. For example, we collaborated with technical universities, where research into the chemical composition of the mass and its formula was carried out at the Material Engineering Faculties, while at the same time we conducted independent tests and trials in the factory.
The ROCKLITE mass is a new material for us, it is relatively expensive and requires different production parameters. That's why we had to learn ROCKLITE technology step by step - and we did just that.

THE ROAD TO PERFECTION
Production ready for the challenges of visionaries.
The manufacturing process for washbasins made from ROCKLITE ceramic starts with the moulding of the selected shapes in the moulding benches and the selection of the right processing times. The processing is done by hand, which allows you to prevent damage but also to fine-tune every detail with great care. In this way, the surface of the products is always perfectly smooth and fits the thin edges of the washbasin. Then the products are fired in a tunnel kiln at a temperature of 1,230 degrees Celsius. At each stage, the washbasins undergo thorough verification, thanks to which the finished ROCKLITE product is perfect in every respect.

ABOUT THE ROCKLITE PROJECT
Premium style for everyone.
The ROCKLITE ceramic mass, thanks to its durability and plasticity, allows the design of washbasins with ultra-thin walls and perfectly smooth surfaces. One gets the impression that this technology makes it possible to shape a product in a way that is almost against the laws of physics. For designers, it is also a great opportunity to implement projects that, until recently, the noble ceramic material could not cope with - says Maciej Studzieński, head of the Cersanit design team.
The popularity of ROCKLITEs washbasins is growing year by year, and the tens of thousands of units sold only confirm how much they are appreciated by consumers. Not just in Europe, but in every corner of the world. Our uncompromising quality offered at an affordable price makes designs available to a wider range of prospective customers.
