The hardness of porcelain, the natural minerals from stone and the consistency of manufactured stone-without any of the resins.
A unique product now defined as a Sintered Stone, Lapitec is a supreme example of a construction material developed by employing advanced scientific manufacturing techniques.
It has only been possible to create such a material by obtaining the most highly refined natural constituents and by controlling the physical and chemical environment of aggregation and crystallisation during manufacture, to a degree not possible before.
Lapitec’s composition is 100% mineral with no resin or hydrocarbon based binder components. It’s chemistry and mineralogy is similar to a granite but with a tight, cryptocrystalline structure similar to Porcelain:
Titanium dioxide is applied to the sintered stone during manufacture; the resulting product is pollution and mould resistant and is inherently anti-bacterial. Micro-organisms decompose safely on the surface of the product and as a result can be easily ‘washed’ from the surface. In the external environment this means Lapitec is effectively self-cleaned by rain water. Bio-Care is particularly useful when high standards of cleanliness and hygiene are needed, or where external airborne pollution could be a factor.
Lapitec is made from 100% natural minerals without the use of any resins or binding agents.
Lapitec is imporous and is therefore water resistant. Ideal for bathrooms or pool surrounds.
The Lapitec collection is available in slab sizes of 3365 x 1500mm.
Due to Lapitec’s inherent density, it can withstand forces above and beyond it’s predecessors – providing the solid surface with longevity.
The beautiful and natural colours from the Lapitec collection will remain the same over time and will never fade, even with continued exposure to UV light.
Lapitec slabs are full bodied and as such composition, physical and visual properties are consistent throughout.
The beauty of Lapitec is that it’s engineered for life – even at only 12mm thick, Lapitec is one of the strongest hard surface materials on the market.
Complete resistance and protection against acids and alkali, leaving you with the confidence of knowing that any cleaning, spillages or mishaps will not effect your Lapitec surfaces.
