Ceppo Carnico

The “CEPPO CARNICO” is a natural agglomerate belonging at classic sedimentary rocks with calcareous array cementation.
It’s quarried in the area of Cavazzo Carnico (Udine), in the north zone of Friuli Venezia Giulia.


Thanks to the good technical properties,  resistance to the freeze and  limited alterability by the effects of weathering, the Ceppo Carnico can be applied in the building trade and for street furniture.

The main surface finishes are: crude sawn surface, smoothed, sand-blasted and bush hammered.
The Ceppo Carnico is suitable for interior and exterior flooring and coverings, windowsills, threshold, door and window frames, steps, portals and columns.
