Kourasanit, a decorative materials manufacturer creating unique, ecofriendly coating materials, announces that its products are now available for purchase in the U.S. For more than 35 years, Kourasanit has been an industry standard in Europe. Founded in Greece, the company creates its products from the time-honored tradition of mixing lime and volcanic ash to create plasterlike coatings for use in restoration and building.
This mix is known as a “hydraulic mortar” and creates a multipurpose coating that is beautiful, natural, durable, and resistant to moisture and cracks. Aggregates add visual and tactile appeal to the coatings. Aggregate options range from natural materials like sand and straw to recycled materials like crushed glass.
Kourasanit coatings can be applied to walls, furniture, ceilings, and floors in every aspect of commercial or residential surface finishing — including bathrooms, foyers, libraries, dens, living rooms, kitchens and even swimming pools, where the coatings provide a long-lasting, non-slip surface for pool interiors and surrounding areas.
The coatings offer a wide range of application possibilities, including lending any surface the appearance of natural stone. Since Kourasanit coatings do not function as cement or spackle, the product must be applied to paint-ready surfaces.
Because Kourasanit coatings are made from natural materials and can be applied to both exterior and interior surfaces, every application of the product leads to a unique aesthetic result. For this reason, the coatings are popular with faux-finishers, decorative painters, interior designers, developers, architects and homeowners looking for one-of-a-kind finishing options.
Kourasanit coatings are used extensively in European luxury hotels and casinos, including the Cavo Tagoo Hotel, the Blue Palace Resort and Spa, and Aquila Elounda Village Resort. The Kourasanit USA showroom, located in Metairie, Lousianna, illustrates the versatility of the coatings, offering a wide range of color, texture and application samples to view and touch.
Kourasanit is currently accepting distributor, dealer, and franchise applications for open territories.
