Frequently Asked Questions


Our product

Where does the plastic in the plates come from?

The recycled plastic comes from France! 


For the manufacture of our plates we use two types of waste:

PIR (post-industrial plastic), for example scraps of material used for cosmetics.
PCR (post-consumer plastic), for example bottle caps.

Where is it made?

Our plates are manufactured in our workshops in Aubervilliers in the Paris region. For the cutting and assembly of the plates, we call on trusted service providers who, over time, have learned to master our material.

What are the dimensions of our product?

Originally, Le Pavé® is presented in the form of slabs.

They are produced in 1400 x 900 mm dimensions and assembled if necessary.

Our standard thicknesses are 8, 12 and 19 mm.

What is the weight of a plate?

The density of the plates is 0.95 g/cm3. As an example, an 8 mm thick plate weighs about 11 kg.

Does the material get scratched?

The material lives with time and develops a patina. However, if surface roughness appears with use, the material is easily repaired.

As it is a solid material, sanding the surface, like wood, will make it look like new.

Is the material heat resistant?

The material has been tested and is resistant to 120°C. 

Can the material be used outdoors?

Yes, we have performed UV tests and the material is water repellent (water resistant). The material expands with heat differences. It is necessary to be careful with the installation. 

Will the color of the material change?

Resistant to chemical agents and UV, Le Pavé retains its initial color over time.

Is the material staining?

Le Pavé® is guaranteed not to stain and is easy to clean thanks to its smooth finish.

Any maintenance tips?

It is very simple, a simple cleaning with water is enough. For more stubborn dirt, use white vinegar and a micro-fiber cloth. 



What are the possible applications?

Presented in the form of a slab, Le Pavé® has many applications (soap dishes, planters, furniture, worktops, wall coverings…)

Pleasant to the touch and water resistant, it can be used in bathrooms and kitchens. 

For ERP projects (establishment receiving the public), Le Pavé® can be fire resistant (up to M2).

How to process the material?

Le Pavé® can be worked like wood. It can be cut, sanded, drilled, screwed, etc.

For the finishing touches, conventional sanding will smooth the material.
