Lapitec® is a natural, sintered*, “full body” material composed 100% by minerals bound using technology, machinery and know-how exclusively developed by Breton S.p.A (world leader in machines and plants for the stone and engineered natural stone industry). Lapitec® is resistant to acids, bases and solvents, it is hard wearing, impact resistant, non-flammable, thaw and frost resistant and insensitive to UV rays. Its surfaces are pore free hence do not absorb, therefore are stain free, hygienic and easy to clean and bacteria and mold repellent.
Lapitec® is the product the world of architecture was looking for. It combines the strength of the sintered material with the properties, elegance, natural colors and the typical finishes of natural stone enhancing or blending naturally into any surroundings. Lapitec® slabs size: 59" x 134”, Thickness: ½” and also in 3/4" and 1-1/4” as special order. Finishes: Lux, Satin, Vesuvio and Fossil. * Sintering is a method used to create objects from powders. It is based on atomic diffusion. Diffusion occurs in any material above absolute zero but it occurs much faster at higher temperatures.
