Case Study: Sintered Stone for Bathrooms

Sintered stone is a great solution for a wide range of applications, including horizontal and vertical surfaces, and bathrooms, including shower pans, baths and surrounds, as well as mini-pools, saunas and tops and doors for washbasin vanity units.

Completely free of surface pores, sintered stone can be used in direct contact with water and cleaning agents without suffering any damage and ensures remarkable hygiene and safety properties thanks to its entirely silica-free composition and the highly slip-resistant finishes available.

The large dimensions of the Lapitec slabs, for example, available in an XXL format of up to 1540 mm by 3440 mm, allow shower coverings to be designed with clean lines owing to the absence of joints and gaps. The workability of the material — which can be cut and engraved to optimum aesthetic effect thanks to its full-body structure — facilitates the customization and creation of fixtures in a variety of styles and colors. From warm tones to absolute white — with through-body veining in the Musa collection — to the shades of grey and black, sintered stone offers a bathroom palette par excellence, where the use of natural tones promotes well-being.

Lapitec is available in three thicknesses, 12 mm, 20 mm and 30 mm, and is resistant to shocks and scratches, alterations due to the effect of UV rays, temperature variations and extreme temperatures. It creates an inhospitable environment for mold and bacteria and offers excellent performance underwater while maintaining its appearance perfectly.

About Lapitec
The result of a production process covered by 25 patents, Lapitec is a material used in architecture, interior and product design, made from a mixture of 100% natural mineral materials and free of resins, inks and petroleum derivatives. Entirely free of crystalline silica thanks to the use of Biorite — a mineral component patented by the company, which makes it safe and even more sustainable, Lapitec’s large slabs come in three thicknesses (12, 20 and 30 mm), 16 shades and seven finishes. Lapitec is a full-body sintered stone, identical on the inside and the outside with no enamel or digital printing on the surface, a characteristic that allows it to be processed throughout its thickness, with consistency in appearance and performance. Nonporous on the surface, it is also resistant to temperature changes, frost and high temperatures, UV rays, scratches, chemicals and can be used in direct contact with water. Its high performance, sustainability and availability in XXL sizes make it extremely versatile for use in ventilated facades and roofing, indoor and outdoor horizontal and vertical surfaces, swimming pool cladding and yacht upholstery, and kitchen and table tops.
