Frequently Asked Questions
What is Neolith®?
Born in the last decade, Neolith – a Sintered Stone – is part of a new and revolutionary product category aimed at meeting more demanding architectural and design needs.
It is not at all what is known as traditional ceramic or stoneware but rather evolved from these materials to the point that a new type of surface was created which was non-existent up until that time. Neolith is pioneer in the Sintered Stone industry.
What is Sintered Stone?
Composition: 100% natural based on 3 groups of elements:
1. Minerals from granite: quartz and feldspar which provide the product with hardness and strength.
2. Minerals from glass and silica that provide chemical stability.
3. Natural oxides that offer chromatic properties.
How is NEOLITH® produced?
The Sintering Technology TheSize has developed to create Neolith replicates the process by which stones are naturally created over a period of thousands of years in just a few hours. It consists of subjecting the raw materials described above to very high pressures and temperatures.
The combination of raw materials goes through a press in a first phase where pressure of up to 400 bars is applied.
In a second phase, the slabs are placed in an oven where they are cooked at temperatures of more than 1200ºC. This process produces an ultra-compact decorative full-body surface.
Where can NEOLITH® be applied?
Because of the format and physical/mechanical characteristics, this type of product is ideal for an endless number of interior and exterior uses in business and private homes: countertops, floors, walls, facades, tiling, furniture. The only limit is your imagination.
Is NEOLITH® scratch-resistant?
Yes. Neolith is made of natural materials and is produced at very high temperatures and pressures which make it highly scratch and impact-resistant. However, sudden impacts, excessive temperatures and improper use can damage the surface of the material just like with any other surface.
The vitrified surface of the Polished finish requires greater care as it does not feature as much surface hardness.
*Take special care with ceramic knives:
Ceramic knives can scratch a Neolith surface irrespective of the finish just as they scratch other brands of the same and other product categories.
Will the small NEOLITH® sample I have coincide with the slabs once installed?
Variations in color, tone and pattern are inherent to the natural raw materials used to produce Neolith. The samples are cut from complete slabs and only represent a small portion of the complete slab. Please refer to samples simply to get an idea for the colors as there may be minor variations in the slabs actually installed.
What are the advantages of installing NEOLITH® instead of other materials?
Neolith is the latest in versatile products. Unlike other materials, Neolith can be used for any purpose which means architects, interior specialists, designers and owners can create a comprehensive, modern project. It is a light surface with a wide variety of finishes.
