From the beginning, the story of Margraf Industria Marmi Vicentini stands out for important and constant investments in research and technological innovation.
Today, against an ever-growing professional path of over one hundred years, the company can boast technical and production potentials unique in the world.
This important competitive plus, combined with the great ability, passion and experience of the skilled workers employed, has allowed Margraf to become a real reference point in the marble and natural stones sector. The man is the real author, the technology is his instrument: they work together in a perfect balance to bring the marble to its maximum expression.
Margraf has fully succeeded in this aim. And it has gone further, constantly using technology and human creativity to test new processes and innovative forms of treatment which have enriched the materials of novel visual and tactile sensations, conquering new and unexpected areas of use.
In a demanding and competitive market as the present one, it becomes increasingly important measuring and demonstrating the required standards. Margraf is one of the few companies in Italy to put the CE marking on its marble: this certification ensures marble adaptability also to particularly difficult climatic conditions. In compliance with the UNI EN 1341 standard, applied to pedestrian and vehicular slabs, the CE marked marble must undergo the following laboratory tests:
Flexing strength (EN 12372)
Apparent volume mass (EN 1936)
Resistance to freezing and flexing after 48 cycles (EN 12371)
Abrasion resistance (EN1341)
Water absorption at atmospheric pressure (EN 13755)
Open porosity (EN 1936)
Slip resistance (EN 14231)
Macroscopic rock description (EN 1341)
Petrographic analysis (EN 12407)
Margraf is able to guarantee the quality of its manufactured products, even for any outdoor use. The certified quality of materials is only one aspect of the company policy which has always been marked by a quest for excellence embracing, in particular, the managerial and productive process. The compliance with product and production standards is inspired not only by the highest quality criteria, but also by sustainability, aware that today’s business decisions are crucial to guarantee a better future to everybody. Since 2005, all activities at Margraf, from design to the production of every item, comply with ISO 9001 standards and are certified.
