Lapitec® is an innovative “full bodied” sintered stone slab. 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.
Lapitec® is a unique product defined as Sintered Stone, made of 100% minerals with no resins or petroleum derivatives. It is produced in slabs measuring 3365x1500 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.
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 non porous and therefore resistant to staining, mold and bacteria. Lapitec® ’s resistance to these factors means it is also easily cleaned.
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.
Lapitec® uses Bio-Care technology which gives Lapitec® the ability to breakdown and to wash away the organic atmospheric particles which deposit on the surface with a bactericidal effect: this result is obtained by incorporating a special form of Titanium dioxide (Ti02) during the Lapitec® production. Titanium dioxide is a catalyst which degrades organic matter through oxidation thanks to the reaction to natural sunlight or artificial lighting (photocatalysis). Furthermore, it gives Lapitec® hydrophilic properties promoting a washing effect to remove the polluting particles from the surface. This important feature allows Lapitec® to define their surfaces as “self-cleaning” and to consider it the perfect choice for locations where you have to guarantee a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene with anti-polluting and self-cleaning properties.
