Krion was developed by


, another company owned by the Porcelanosa Group. It is made of two-thirds natural materials (ATH – aluminium trihydride) and resins. The material can be milled like wood, thermally formed, or injection-molded. Along with UV- and fire-resistant properties, it has minimal porosity, making it resistant to bacteria, graffiti, and stains. It is 100 percent recyclable at the end of its life cycle.
