The elegance of Scultura Collection, the luxury of Translucent Collection, the immaculate beauty of Prestige Line and the brightness of Prisma line.
A wide portfolio of customizable options designed to meet your furniture needs. Moreover, OKITE® protects the environment, as it is an environmentally friendly product, guaranteed by the Indoor Air Quality Certification issued by the Greenguard Environmental Institute attesting to the compliance of its quartz surfaces with the strict substance indoor emission tests. Safer, 100% Made in Italy.
Why is OKITE® better than marble?
Compared to marble, OKITE® is more stress- and stain-resistant. Furthermore, OKITE® is provided with the NSF certification (an American authority attesting to the safety of products in contact with food.)
From the aesthetic point of view, the quartz also offers a greater uniformity with respect to natural stone.
How can I test the quality of my OKITE® surface?
SEIEFFE gives you the chance to personally test OKITE® before the purchase.
You just need to visit an authorized showroom belonging to the OKITE® network to touch and see with your own eyes the quality of the product. You can also try to stain an OKITE® sample with oil, vinegar, lemon juice, wine, coffee and even ink.
This simple test will show you that no product can stain an OKITE® top, and that it is easy to keep your OKITE® surface as good as new.
How can OKITE® be so stain-resistant?
OKITE® is scratch-, stress- and stain-resistant, thanks to its unique production process and the exclusive properties of its materials:
- Its structure undergoes a vacuum vibratory compaction during the production step;
- The quartz (with a percentage higher than 90% in OKITE®) is remarkably water-proof;
- The resin is so non-absorbent that it is used even in the naval industry.
What makes OKITE® a safe solution for your house?
The safety of the OKITE® surface results from its special non-porous structure which prevents the formation of bacteria and impurities.
Its safety level is so high that OKITE® is certified by the US NSF body, unlike marble, granite and other natural stones.
The latter in fact, being naturally porous, allow for the spread of various fungi and bacteria.
This is the reason why OKITE® is the safest and best solution for your house.
What products cannot be used to clean an OKITE® surface?
OKITE® can be easily cleaned with any hard surface cleaner.
The products which may undermine its properties are:
- Basic products;
- Industrial Solvents;
- Paint thinners;
- Hydrofluoric acid;
- Caustic soda;
