What is Sintered Stone?
When it comes to countertops, the first thought is usually quartz or granite. However, there's a new material, Sintered stone. Popular in Europe, already taking over 70% of the market. Sintered stone is like porcelain, but is subjected to much higher pressure and heat during manufacturing, resulting in a metamorphic process to bind natural materials with out resins or binders.
By taking natural minerals and processing them with this method, the end result has outstanding physical properties such as resistance, durability and compactness. While great for countertops, Sintered stone can be used for virtually any surface, from patios to fireplaces, this material is the modern solution.
