What is Lapitec?

Introducing

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:

  • Inert and tolerant to very high temperatures, frost and unaffected by moisture
  • Resistant to UV light, acids, alkalis, abrasion and everyday wear and tear
  • All slabs have Lapitec Bio-care applied as standard

Bio-Care

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.
