Founded in 2009, Neolith®, is the market-leading brand of Sintered Stone. This pioneering material that can be specified for the most demanding interior and exterior building projects. Combining high-definition detailed decoration with high-performance qualities, Neolith® offers the triple reassurance of strength, beauty and longevity.
Neolith® Full Body Veining achieves veins throughout the entire slab and not just the surface, replicating the 3D veining found in genuine stone such as marble. The hyper-realistic effect is visible in the slab’s edges and will is available in the 1/2" and 3/4” (12 or 20 mm) thickness models.
Sintered Stone is a 100% natural material based on granite minerals, glass minerals and natural oxides:
- Granite Materials: Quartz and feldspar, giving hardness and strength to the surface
- Glass minerals and silica, which ensures chemical stability
- Natural oxides, which deliver chromatic properties
Neolith® is produced using the very latest in sintering technology, replicating the thousands of years’ process by which natural stone is formed in a matter of hours.
The raw materials which form the slab are first subjected to extremely high pressure, going through a pressing machine where a weight of 400 bars of pressure is applied. In the second phase of the process, the slab goes through a kiln where temperatures reach more than 1200° C (2200° F). This process of ultra-compaction creates full-body surfaces with unique technical features.
