Low silica lowdown

As you may be aware, the engineered stone industry is currently subject to new regulations. It is important to us to keep you updated in a timely, transparent way and well-informed when considering or recommending Smartstone as a surface choice.

Leading the way in low silica surfaces


After three years in the making, we have rolled-out our low silica-surface range – Smartstone NewGen. The Smartstone New Gen formulation comprises up to 56% recycled material and a maximum of 38% silica (all but two colours are 28% or lower). Smartstone silica levels are one of the lowest in the market and we will continue to invest in the development of lower silica surfaces.

Smartstone NewGen surfaces are now available


Our new formulation means we have been able to improve some of our most popular colours and patterns, while also introducing eight stunning new surfaces to the Smartstone engineered stone collection. There are currently 31 surfaces comprising the Smartstone NewGen formula available nationally. Smartstone’s new formulation ensures quality, durability and the continued value offered by our competitive pricing, combined with the standard jumbo slab size across our three ranges: Smartstone NewGen, Ibrido Collection and porcelain.

Tried & tested


As Australia’s most trusted supplier of engineered surfaces, Smartstone always supports our claims of durability and composition with meticulous testing to meet, and exceed, stringent Australian standards. Recently, all Smartstone NewGen slabs have undergone a new series of independent tests to ensure quality and composition assurance.
