Eposlab
Eposlab® is our very own researched and produced
artifical stones inspired by our love for mother
nature. It is a new compound that supercedes
natural resources without compromising the beauty
and quality of similar materials such as solid marble
and granite tops. We call it a 'Green Product'
because you are able to achieve natural beauty
withYAXIS
® Eposlab® without mining, blasting or
damaging the environment. It is the one product
that enhances the quality of artificial stones in the
industry, a unique product that we have created
and currently undergoing the Patent Registration.
EPOSLAB ARTIFICAL STONES
Proven to be resistant to heat, chemical, stain and bacteria YAXIS® Eposlab® is deemed
suitable for kitchen counter-tops, bathroom vanity counter-tops, catering tables, reception
desks, bars, wall cladding, display counters, science laboratory counter-tops, flooring
materials, shelves. Its easy maintenance is a key advantage as users can save from
detergent or stain removal purchases. YAXIS® Eposlab® can be easily maintained with soap
water (for stains) and sandpapers (for scratches or chips) restoring it to its original condition
in no time!

YAXIS® Eposlab®& is made from special resin, pure alumina trihydrate (ATH) and other
natural minerals. This unique cross-link structure caused it to be lower in water absorption.
The material itself is also 20% lighter compared to other artificial stones - making it easier for
transportation, fabrication and installation work. Furthermore, YAXIS® Eposlab® comes in
various colours and designs that can easily complement your personal style and interior.

To top it up, YAXIS® Eposlab®  is the only green product that is recyclable. It can be crushed
and reproduced into new sheets of YAXIS® Eposlab®  to create even more exciting colours
and designs for your personal taste. During the production, YAXIS® Eposlab® generates low
exotherms and emits relatively low carbon dioxide, thus protecting the mother nature in the
process. Check out our YAXIS® Eposlab® collection now!
