Bring a touch of Italian elegance to your Surrey kitchen. A sintered stone, Lapitec is made from 100% natural minerals, with no resins or glues. Often compared to porcelain, it has a similar clarity while being as tough as rock. Waterproof, fireproof, and very hard to damage, it’s ideal for indoor and outdoor uses in both domestic and commercial properties. Available in 20 colours and 7 distinct textures, Lapitec is inspired by natural stone and the stone working traditions found in the region of Treviso, Italy. It’s easy to clean, almost impossible to stain and naturally anti-bacterial, making it a great choice for kitchen worktops.
How is Lapitec made?
Natural stone forms in the earth’s crust under incredible heat and pressure. Lapitec is made in a similar way, with the key difference that modern technology has shorted the production time from thousands of years to just a few days. Lapitec is fused at a molecular level, which means that the stone does not contain any resin or bonding agents. Only top quality minerals are used and all materials are carefully selected to ensure the finished stone meets Lapitec standards and has a consistent finish. The finished material is consistent all the way through the slab, meaning it can be cut to any shape and still display its best face.
What is Lapitec used for?
Waterproof, weatherproof and incredibly hard to damage, Lapitec is designed for both indoor and outdoor use. It can be used for everything from luxurious kitchen worktops to decadent swimming pools. As it doesn’t fade in sunlight and is impervious to frost, it’s an excellent choice for outdoor seating, cooking and dining areas. Lapitec is inert, food safe and easy to clean, making it ideal for food preparation areas.
A new stone made in a old way
Firing or heating has been used to toughen bricks and bake clay into ceramic tiles for thousands of years. Using innovative new processes and high pressure, Lapitec has taken an ordinary process and used it to create something extraordinary. Designed and manufactured in Treviso, Italy, Lapitec draws on a long tradition of stone working in the region which includes world-famous architecture and sculpture.
