Cupa pizarras expands portfolio still further with new cupa 50

20 Sep 2021

CUPA PIZARRAS, has added to its extensive portfolio with the launch of CUPA 50, a non-carbonated, deep grey slate. With a uniform, smooth surface and thin laminations, CUPA 50 can also be produced in larger sizes making it a versatile option for the UK market – ideal for both new builds and renovations.

With a strong reputation and a rich history of quality slate production, the site of the product’s extraction is newly aquired by CUPA PIZARRAS. The company is currently building a new factory in order to further capacity, as part of its ongoing investment and expansion.

CUPA 50 will be available in a range of sizes between 20x20cm and 64x45cm – popular dimensions in the UK market. It also comes in a range of thicknesses, from 3.7mm to 7.5mm. A variety of formats that are traditionally difficult to source will also be available, many of which are popular in the UK market.

CUPA PIZARRAS prides itself on the durability of its slate solutions. This is guaranteed by the company’s meticulous approach to quality control throughout the entire slate production process; from extraction to processing. CUPA 50 is no exception - undergoing thorough examinations to test properties such as water absorption and temperature extremes. These tests offer customers the assurance that the slate can endure the harshest weather conditions, and provide a long life of over 100 years.

“We are delighted to be adding yet another product line to our portfolio, especially within the current economic climate,” commented Steve Pearson, UK Director at CUPA PIZARRAS. “Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have been able to expand and continue to support our customers with regular lead times and excellent product availability. The new CUPA 50 quarry will only help to bolster that service further.”
