Lapitec is a supreme example of a construction material developed by employing advanced scientific manufacturing techniques (patented).
This is not a natural stone, nor an engineered quartz, ceramic or porcelain, but a completely unique product now classified as a sintered stone.
Sintering is a method used to create objects from powders. It is based on atomic diffusion. Diffusion occurs in any material above absolute zero, but it occurs much faster at higher temperatures.
The perfect example of Italian style
Available in large format slabs, it unites aesthetic design appeal and the superior mechanical and physical properties of porcelain with the elegance, workability, colours and typical finishes of natural stone.
It is XXL
Lapitec® is produced in slabs measuring 3365 x 1500 mm and with calibrated thicknesses of 12, 20 or 30 mm. With 5,05 m2 per slab, Lapitec® is the biggest sintered stone available on the market.
It is versatile
Lapitec® provides the most suitable and diverse solutions for construction and furnishing, with the dimensions required by designers. Being a “full bodied” material it is easy to work and can be utilizedin countless applications: from internal and external cladding to pavements, from kitchen tops to ventilated façades.
It is clean
Lapitec® is non porous and therefore resistant to staining, mould and bacteria. Lapitec’s resistance to these factors means it is easily cleaned.
It is eternal
Lapitec® is a product that is long lasting and completely weather proof. Every slab is resistant to acids, alkalis, deep abrasions, fire, frost and is unaffected by UV rays. It is also resistant to graffiti.
It is natural
Lapitec® is produced with maximum respect for both people and the environment. It is completely inert, containing no resins or petroleum derivatives.
The properties of Lapitec mean that it can be used for almost any surface application, including:
- Kitchen worktops
- Internal cladding & flooring
- External cladding
- External paving
