Considered as the next generation engineered stone, sintered stones offer additional properties to those of natural stones and engineered quartz. There is an increasing product range coming from manufacturers like Dekton, Lapitec and Neolith. All of which have different range of colours and patterns for an extended range of uses. Uses include interior and exterior cladding, paving, bathroom surfaces and of course worktops – internal and external! All brands have similar properties such as durability, weather resistant, UV resistant, stain resistant and a high resistance to scratching chipping and other damages.
Dekton is highly resistant to ultraviolet (UV) rays and has superior colour fastness so it doesn’t fade over time, the perfect choice for both interior and exterior applications. Dekton offers more than 40 colours across its eight collections. Its versatility and extensive customization options allow designers and architects.
Lapitec® is an innovative “full body” sintered stone slab. Available in large format slabs, it unites aesthetic design appeal and the superior mechanical and physical properties of porcelain with the elegance, workability, colours and typical finishes of natural stone.
