Artecta quality

Natural product

Formed over thousands of years and extracted from the heart of the earth, the stone is split by hand through cleavage, respecting its natural morphology.

Lasts for centuries

The unique quality of slate guarantees durability over time, far superior to any other type of cladding.

High aesthetic value

Valuable product that significantly increases the value of the building on which it is placed, enriches it and makes it unique.

It does not absorb or stain

Thanks to the metamorphic geological origin, slate has a very low coefficient of absorbency which can reach up to 0.10 as a percentage.


  • Product that provides thermal insulation, maintaining interiors heated or cool, as necessary.
  • Disperses high and low frequency wave emissions and static electricity produced daily by household appliances.
