Compact Sintered Material
RESISTANT TO HIGH TEMPERATURES
It does not burn in contact with fire and not let off smoke or toxic substances.
Heat resistant, you can place your hot pans on the platters to protect your benchtop.
Resistant to scratching and abrasion due to the hardness of the surface.
Absorption level near zero
Low absorption makes it resistant to stains and moulds.
Low absorption makes it resistant to bacteria and no odours.
Extremely durable and hygienic surface.
Completely suitable for contact with food.
Does not release harmful substances.
Porcelain is very light making easy to handle.
Lightweight is an essential quality for inclusive design.
The porcelain 6mm weight is only 14kg/m2.
100% NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE AND SAFE
100% eco-friendly, using natural materials and technologies that respect the environment. Entirely made up of natural materials like clays, feldspar, silica and mineral oxides. Obtaining its colours from 100% natural pigments. Resin-free. Does not release any harmful substances into the environment.
Up to 52% of any Porcelain board is comprised of recycled raw materials.
EASY TO CLEAN
Resistant to chemical cleaning agents.
Small platters can be cleaned in the dishwasher
RESISTANT TO ICE AND FREEZING
Low temperatures do not damage Porcelain.
Compact Sintered Materials, popularly called Porcelain, represent a newer next generation of engineered materials and are likely to see significant growth in the coming years because of their unique properties. They have been on the market for just about a decade.
Manufactured using Italian high-tech technology, developed to outperform composite and quarried materials. Surfacing companies have invested millions upon millions of dollars in the creation of compact sintered materials, which are not the Porcelain or ceramic materials that you may think you already know.
Sintering is the process of compacting and forming a solid mass of material by heat and pressure without melting it to the point of liquefaction. Sintering happens naturally in mineral deposits or as a manufacturing process during which the atoms in the materials diffuse across the boundaries of the particles, fusing the particles and creating one solid piece.
Made with 100% of natural minerals – sand, quartz, clay, feldspar, recycled content and contain no toxic resins, chemical binders or materials that pose silicosis risk or could add to harmful VOC off-gassing.
