In order to minimize environmental and socioeconomic impacts, the project's objective is to develop artificial stone with incorporation of waste (powder from the polishing process of porcelain and mineral filler used by a company for the production of artificial stone) and epoxy resin, using as methodology the “Vibro, Compression, Vacuum” process that is currently used by the artificial stone industry. The granulometry was divided into three ranges, and the Simplex network experimental numerical modeling methodology was used for best-packed condition . The plates were produced in the dimensions of 100x100x10mm and the mixtures with the greatest packaging of the particles were (1/3 of fine particles, 1/3 medium and 1/3 large). The characterization consisted of analyzing the mechanical and physical properties. The results classify the material with high flexural strength above 20 Mpa, and good physical properties that classify the material with high potential to be used as a coating.
