IceStone durable surfaces are made of recycled glass and cement and is one of the most environmentally safe products you can use for home building. It is strong like granite, not as porous as marble and heat-resistant like stone. The chemical composition is benign and 99.5% inorganic, making it a very safe material from the standpoint of toxicity and fire resistance. The fabrication, installation and maintenance of IceStone surfaces follow essentially the same process as used with natural stone.
IceStone has adopted goals for energy conservation, carbon emissions, water use, and waste management. IceStone will become carbon-neutral, purchase renewable energy credits, and will continue to reduce energy use per square foot of product produced.
Icestone is a surfacing product only sold to fabricators who are licensed, bonded and insured in the states they do business. Icestone actively reduces the waste stream by redirecting millions of pounds of glass from landfills for use in our durable surface slabs, made of 100% recycled glass in a cement matrix. Designed to be VOC-free, Icestone is the first and only durable surface material in the world to be cradle to cradle certified for human health, environmental health, and recyclability.
