December 3, 2008

HOUSTON, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Cosentino(R), a worldwide leader in
natural stone, announces the introduction of SenSa(R) with SenGuard(TM) in
Lowe’s stores nationwide. SenSa by Cosentino is the most consumer-friendly
granite on the market, featuring the exclusive SenGuard treatment and 15-year

“Consumers do not have to travel further than their nearest Lowe’s store
to select SenSa granite and have it installed quickly and efficiently by the
foremost authority in the stone industry,” says Gary Andler, VP of National
Accounts, Cosentino North America. “SenSa granite countertops are treated with
our patented SenGuard process, eliminating the need for ongoing sealing of the
surface, and providing the lowest maintenance granite on the market today.”

Unlike natural stone sealers, SenGuard offers a protective shield that
anchors to the surface of the stone. SenGuard penetrates into the lattice of
SenSa granite, protecting the countertops from staining and eliminating the
need for sealing. SenGuard provides long-lasting protection to SenSa granite.
SenSa with SenGuard offers a wide selection of colors to choose from and is
available in 20 colors, such as Absolute Black, Dakota Mahogany and Giallo
Latina. In February of 2009, six additional exclusive colors will be added to
the SenSa granite palette.

Each slab of SenSa is grade-A, one-of-a-kind granite, quarried responsibly
by Cosentino’s exclusive suppliers using state-of-the-art equipment. SenSa
with SenGuard requires no special cleaners; withstands temperatures of up to
572 F; repels liquids; is UV resistant, and is Greenguard certified and easy
to clean.

Cosentino North America recently expanded their granite slab processing
plant in Vitoria, Brazil, in order to accommodate the increase in demand. The
expansion has tripled the plant’s capacity and increased production to more
than 350 containers of slab material per month. The new granite slab
processing facility offers the ability to provide an enhanced product line to
SenSa granite customers at Lowe’s.

SenSa Granite is now available in more than 1,200 Lowe’s stores
