Production Process

The production of Lapitec takes place in the 13,000m2 premises in Treviso, Italy. The exact production process remains confidential and there is an area of the factory in which only a handful of individuals are allowed.

The process begins with an extremely refined powder which contains 100% natural minerals found in granites and porcelain. These minerals then undergo a process of atomic diffusion which includes firing at temperatures of 1200°C. Even prior to firing the slabs are stable enough to be handled vertically.

The different finishes are created at various stages in the production – the textured finishes, Vesuvio and Fossil, are produced before firing whereas the Satin and Lux finishes are produced with traditional stone working machinery.
