WHAT IS NEOLITH?

Neolith is the outcome of a selection of the best raw materials and a revolutionary highly technological production process known as sinterization. Thanks to these elements and to several exhaustive quality controls along the chain, a Sintered Stone of large format and minimum thickness with extraordinary characteristics is obtained.

Often confused with Porcelain the difference between Neolith and traditional ceramics is evident by just comparing the characteristics. Although traditional ceramics might have a similar, single characteristic, none of them have all the typical characteristics of Neolith, like stain, scratch, chemical and heat resistance all in one product. It already starts with the raw materials, although consisting of similar ingredients and obtained from comparable sources; the raw materials for Neolith are finer and more pure, to guarantee a more uniform product.

The machinery used to process these raw materials is one of a kind, designed specifically for Neolith. The production line is fitted with state of the art equipment with the latest technology, to ensure a high quality product.

The raw materials are pressed at a significantly higher pressure to obtain a denser material. Afterwards, the pressed material are fired for almost 2 hours, substantially longer than traditional ceramics, which have firing cycles of around 40 minutes. These longer firing cycles create a product with a stronger, nonabsorbent surface.

All these improvements in both raw materials and production techniques result in an enhanced product, with superior technical characteristics as is Neolith.

Properties of Neolith:

S1-removebg-preview.png

Scratch Resistant

Resistant to scratching and abrasion due to the hardness of the surface.

S4-removebg-preview.png

High Pressure Resistant

A high modulus of rupture. Resistant to high pressure and weight loads.

S7-removebg-preview.png

Non Pourous

Waterproof and liquid-resistant. With an absorption level near zero.

S10-removebg-preview.png

High Traffic Friendly

Due to the hardness of the surface.

S3-removebg-preview.png

Freeze and Thaw Resistant

Neolith® is not damaged by low temperatures.

S5-removebg-preview.png

High Temperature Resistant

Does not burn in contact with fire or let off smoke or toxic substances.

Hygienic

Does not release harmful substances. Completely suitable for contact with food.

S11-removebg-preview.png

100% Recyclable

Up to 52% of any Neolith board is comprised of recycled raw materials.

S2-removebg-preview.png

UV Resistant

Since the color is 100% natural, it does not deteriorate due to exposure to the sun or extreme temperatures.

Light Weight

S6-removebg-preview.png

The 3 mm slab is only 1.75 lb/sq² and the 12 mm slab, 7 lb/sq².

S9-removebg-preview.png

Easy to Clean

Resistant to chemical cleaning agents.

S12-removebg-preview (1).png

100% Natural

Resin-free. Does not release any harmful substance into the environment.
