Travina® was designed to be a low cost alternative for kitchen counter tops. It is comparable in beauty to real stone, as durable as solid surface products, yet stays within an affordable price range for most budgets.Anti-Microbial
Travina® uses its own protection system which incorporates anti-microbial properties. Testing proves that the anti-microbial protection system falls in the 99% effective range. Renewable
Travina’s unique system makes it a renewable product. Very minor scratches can be removed with a single application of Travina® Final Coat. Deeper scratches can be taken care of by using a 400 grit sandpaper followed by Travina® Final Coat. In extreme cases, the manufacturer can renew almost any Travina® surface.Heat Resistant
Travina® fillers are heat resistant, but we recommend you use a hot pad.Scratch Resistant
Travina® products are scratch resistant. Although very sharp objects will scratch the surface, normal wear is typically undetectable. Travina’s unique appearance gives the product better ability to hide surface wear than its competition.Stain Resistant
Travina® is a porous product, but neither the aggregate or the resins are susceptible to staining. Travina® Final Coat is an advanced 5-year sealer that holds up to common stains. Some acids, bleaches and citrus products can harm the surface.Made in the USA
Travina® products are manufactured in the US by certified regional suppliers who have completed the Travina® process training.
