Sintered stone is a matrix of minerals heated (sintered) to form a solid impenetrable mass that results in a surface that cannot be etched, scratched, burned, or stained. Sintered stone is easily cleaned and does not have any resins, most notably petroleum, which is found in quartz. Its structure is bound together by heat and pressure, not resins and plastic, making it a much healthier option.
Since sintered products are made from selected natural minerals, their characteristics can be seen as surpassing those of comparable ceramic products, which do not possess the same stain, scratch, chemical, heat, and frost resistance. Cleverly composed of a combination of powdered minerals and a minimal amount of water, sintered stones are created with applied pressure and heat that allows the powder particles to bond together, which creates a very dense and nonporous end result. Sintered stones typically boast a porosity of less than 0.09 percent, which means they are able to able to stop the absorption of liquids and eliminate the need for sealers.
Aesthetic and Environmental Advantages
Combining advanced performance properties with the elusive elegance of natural materials, sintered surfaces can simulate the look of stone, concrete, marble, tile, and wood, as well other smooth and textured surfaces. Sintered stones are often offered in a variety of through body colors and patterns, and the dense, nonporous surfaces are easy to clean, with an appearance that can be readily maintained over time. Since sintered stones are mineral based in their natural form, they offer an organically appealing aesthetic that is further enhanced by its inherent tactility and textures. Moreover, the material is lauded for being hygienic and well-suited for use across food-handling surfaces. The varied aesthetic attributes of sintered stone have helped to advance its popularity across an array of applications that extend from interior to exterior environment
