Pedrini, after years of commitment of its Research Centre and important collaborations with several University Institutes, has patented the exclusive SOUNDSTONE® technological process that enhances out the beauty and strength of natural stone.
The innovative technological process is a consolidation achieved by deep soaking of the stone with silicon-based liquid product that acts on the mechanical structure of the material by drastically reducing the degree of absorption.
The technology is tailored, that is, it is adjusted for each stone through a series of prior tests that are used to ascertain the functionality of the consolidation and to identify the parameters of the process cycle.
Polishing the Soundstone®-treated slabs brings out the natural beauty of the stones' colours.
Each plant is customized and dimensioned according to the desired level of automation, the size of the available space and the required productivity.
Pedrini's proposal is a tailor-made technology covered by patent and unique in the world.
It is a unique customized technology patented by Pedrini
The SOUNDSTONE® system operates with minimal energy consumption and very limited manpower
SOUNDSTONE® is totally environmentally friendly, does not pollute and does not involve disposal problems, even in the sludge produced by cutting and polishing consolidated products.
SOUNDSTONE® contains no resins or solvents and emits no fumes harmful to humans or the environment; its handling requires no special care

The following process steps take place in the vacuum chamber: eventual drying of the material, vacuum pre-treatment by means of a depression of appropriate intensity and duration that provides for the extraction of gases, vapours and dust present in the micro-porosities of the stone, deep immersion soakingwith SOUNDSTONE®,restoration of atmospheric pressure and recovery of the residual SOUNDSTONE® that is sent to the source tank.
In the curing chamber, the semi-finished products are transferred and kept at a controlled temperature for the time required to consolidate the soaker.
