Neolith sintered compact surface what is it?
Born in the last decade, Neolith- a Sintered Stone – is a revolutionary product pioneered to be an extraordinary stone for architectural and interior design needs. It does not belong to what is traditionally known as “ceramic” or “porcelain” it’s rather an extreme evolution of the these products to the extent of creating a new kind of surface previously in existent. This stone is the pioneer and continuous innovator of the sintered stones.
What is Sintered Stone?
It is a 100% natural material based on 3 groups of natural elements:
- Granite Minerals: Quartz and Feldspar which grants hardness and strength to the product
- Glass Minerals and Silica which grants chemical stability
- Natural oxides which chromatic properties
Why choose Neolith?
It is the outcome of a selection of the best raw materials and a revolutionary highly technological production process known as sinterization. Thanks to these elements and to several exhaustive quality controls along the chain, a Sintered Stone of large formats and minimum thickness with extraordinary characteristics is obtained.
It is the next generation of countertops with many colour options to choose from and large slab sizes which can be cut to fit into any kitchen. It is 100% eco-friendly, using natural materials and technologies that respect the environment and complies with every European Environmental safety standard.
The technology and precision used to manufacture Neolith ensures optimum efficiency in terms of energy consumption and use of raw materials. The production and lifecycle of Neolith surfaces have the minimum possible impact on the environment and the end product is fully recyclable.
Why it’s not Ceramics?
Differences between Neolith and traditional ceramics is evident by just comparing the characteristics. Although traditional ceramics might have a similar, single characteristic, none of them have all the typical characteristics of Neolith, like stain, scratch chemical and heat resistance all in one product. It already starts with the raw materials, although consisting of similar ingredients and obtain from comparable sources; the raw materials used are finer and more pure, to guarantee a more uniform product.
The material is more hard and less likely to break, which make it perfect for interior and exterior countertops.
