Lapitec and Dekton materials are both sintered stones and are produced using 100% natural minerals that can be found in granite and porcelain. These materials unite the aesthetic design appeal and the superior mechanical and physical properties of porcelain with the elegance, workability, colours and typical finishes of natural stone.
Lapitec® and Dekton products are non-porous and therefore resistant to staining, mould and bacteria. The materials naturally prevent liquids and gasses from penetrating the surface, making it a low maintenance surface that is easier to clean. The materials are both highly water resistant and never need to be sealed.
Lapitec® and Dekton are long lasting materials and are completely weather proof. Every slab is resistant to acids, alkalis, deep abrasions, fire, frost and is unaffected by UV rays. It is also resistant to graffiti.
While other surfaces are stain resistant, Dekton and Lapitec are completely stain proof. Even the most stubborn stains like wine, coffee, markers and rust can easily be removed from the surface. Since the materials have extremely low porosity and contain no resins, it is chemically resistant. Drips or splashes of common household chemicals like bleach, drain cleaners or oven degreasers won’t harm these sintered stones.
Lapitec® and Dekton withstand high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking. Hot Pots and Appliances like Crock Pots can be placed directly on the surface with no worry of damage. The sintered stone are non-combustible materials.
Lapitec® and Dekton are low coefficient of thermal expansion and therefore, makes it Thermal Shock proof from both extreme heat and extreme cold. It’s natural resistance to ice and thawing makes it perfect for use in even the coldest environments.
The manufacturing process used to make the sintered stones allows for the pigmentation and decoration of the material to be controlled and therefore, giving better colour consistency from slab to slab and resulting in a long-lasting product that will not fade over time. The surface you install today will maintain the same new appearance for the life of the product.
Lapitec® and Dekton slabs provide the most suitable and diverse solutions for construction and furnishing, with the dimensions required by designers. Lapitec is a “full bodied” material it is easy to work and can be utilized in countless applications: from internal and external cladding to pavements, from kitchen tops to ventilated façades. Available in 8mm, 12mm, 20mm and 30mm so can be used as cladding, flooring as well as very thin kitchen worktops. The 12 and 20 mm thicknesses guarantee a slab size of 3365×1500 mm (5.05m2), and the 30 mm slabs guarantee a slab size of 1460×3365 mm (4.91m2).
Lapitec® and Dekton are produced with maximum respect for both people and the environment. Lapitec is manufactured only using solar energy and completely inert, containing no resins or petroleum derivatives.
