Sintered Stone Worktops
If you are looking for stone for your kitchen worktops, vanity unit, bathroom countertops, reception desk or something else entirely, you may think that your only options are natural stone (granite, marble etc.) or quartz. But there is another option available to you which may be perfect for your project: Sintered Stone countertops.
Like Quartz worktops, Sintered Stone is a manufactured product made from a base of natural stone. However, this material is different in that it is made entirely from natural materials which are formed into incredibly strong and durable slabs – this process is called ‘sintering’.
If you need further guidance when choosing your custom sintered stone countertop, please phone our team on 01929 550653 for immediate, expert advice.
What is sintering?
The sintering process uses extreme heat and pressure to bond the material together without melting it. This results in the product being much stronger than the individual parts.
When making slabs of Sintered Stone, the raw materials are compacted under huge pressure of up to 5800 PSI (pounds per square inch). After that, they are baked at a temperature of around 1,200ºC, creating a slab of incredibly strong and versatile stone that is ideal as a countertop / worktop.
Call our expert team on 01929 550653 to find out why this makes sintered stone perfect for your worktop.
