At Gilasi, our mission is to manufacture beautiful, durable engineered solid surfaces containing the highest amount of recycled materials using the most sustainable production practices available.
Sustainable Design with High-Tech Performance
Gilasi Engineered Stone is a durable surface made of aeronautics-grade, VOC-free epoxy and 77 to 85% recycled material. The combination of Gilasi’s ingredients results in a beautiful, non-porous countertop material that enriches any décor. Glass – The recycled glass used in Gilasi is sourced locally, from within 250 miles of our manufacturing facility. Its variety is dazzling: from broken hand-blown lighting fixtures in a myriad of colors to finely crushed container glass to shattered oven-door glass from a manufacturer in Chicago’s historic meat-packing district, “The Back of the Yards.” Each type of glass creates a unique style. Epoxy – Gilasi’s resin is the highest grade available. Our reasons for using it are simple: safety and strength. While many lesser resins are used in the manufacture of other solid surfaces, none of them are VOC-free, either during or after production. Gilasi’s epoxy offers a VOC-free environment for our manufacturing team, the fabricators who tool and install Gilasi surfaces and countertops, as well as our customers. At the same time, the strength, impermeability and durability of this resin are unparalleled.
