We are excited to announce that Elements Room is among the first suppliers in the USA to offer slabs treated with Azerocare technology. So far, marble choices will be available with this treatment which is especially advantageous because of its light and sensitive surface. This treatment will make the stone about 50% harder which will then protect it against damage.
Antolini has long had a connection with the owners of Elements Room, and also has an affinity with California: “California has always been a key market for Antolini: people there love natural products, nature itself, beauty, and moreover care for quality.” Alberto Antolini, quoted in California Home and Design magazine.

Natural stone brings an element to projects that man made products cannot, in terms of being unique and a part of nature. However, since each slab of natural stone is quarried from the earth, this brings different characteristics to each piece and it can require more commitment from the end user in terms of care and maintenance. A hard stone like granite is relatively maintenance-free, requiring sealing on installation and periodically thereafter. Softer stones like marble and onyx require more dedicated care, in terms of being careful not to etch or scratch the surface and taking extra care to wipe up spills immediately.
Antolini, one of the most famous stone suppliers in the world, has created an innovative treatment that will change perceptions about using marble and onyx. A family business based in Verona, Italy, Antolini is constantly exploring new innovations for the stone industry. The latest technology they developed is called Azerocare, a treatment that offers polished marble and onyx full protection from etching and staining caused by contact with acid-based food and drink. The Azerocare treatment offers this protection without compromising the colors and characteristics of the stone. The treatment also makes the surface water-repellent and oil-repellent, so there are no concerns about stains arising from oil, fat or grease.
Azerocare is a permanent treatment, so once treated, there is no need for follow-up treatments. It does not react to UV rays and is safe for the environment. In addition, once the surface has received the Azerocare treatment, it remains easy to clean. Antolini recommends using water, neutral soap and a gentle cloth to wipe down surfaces.
