What is Sintered Stone?
is made of natural stone powder, felsic stone and other natural raw materials through a special process, pressed by a press machine of more than 36,000 tons, combined with advanced production technology, through high temperature above 1200℃ fired into a super-large new porcelain materials. It can withstand various high-strength processing processes such as cutting, drilling, and grinding.
Ceramic slab ≠ Sintered stone.
Sintered stone may look like an large-scale ceramic tile, but in fact, a ceramic slab is not a sintered stone. Manufacturers that can produce ceramic slabs may not be able to produce sintered stone. Compared with ceramic slabs, sintered stone have better processing performance, which can be drilled, polished, cut, and even suitable for making various shapes. There is a big difference between the two in material properties and functions.
What are the advantages of sintered stone?
Health and safety.
Sintered stone can be in direct contact with food. It is made of natural stone, 100% recyclable, non-toxic, non-radiation, healthy and environmentally friendly.
Fire-proof and high-temperature resistance.
The fire resistance of sintered stone reaches A1 level. There will not be any physical changes (shrinkage, cracking, discoloration) when encountering an open flame at 2000°C, nor will it emit any gas or odor. It will not be deformed when directly contacting hot objects.
Resistance to staining.
The water absorption rate of sintered stone is less than one thousandth, which is the highest index among man-made building materials. The stain can't penetrate, and the bacteria can't grow.
The Mohs hardness of sintered stone exceeds 6 degrees.
Sintered stone can resist acid, alkali and various chemical substances. Solvent such as detergents and disinfectants will not damage the sintered stone.
Easy to clean.
We only need to wipe it with a wet towel to clean it up, no special maintenance requirements. The cleaning is simple and fast.
The texture of the sintered stone is rich and diverse, and the surface feels exquisite.
What are the specifications of sintered stone?
Sintered stone are available in 1800×900mm, 2400×1200mm, 2600×800mm, 2600×1200mm, 760×2550mm, 2700×1600mm, 3200×1600mm, 3600×1600mm, with thicknesses of 6mm, 9mm, 12mm.
What is the application of sintered stone?
The main application of sintered stone is in custom home furnishings, wall panels and interior decoration.
What are the processing requirements for sintered stone?
Sintered stone has large size, its cutting and processing requirements are higher. Only with professional processing technology can achieve the processing and application of sintered stone. Inappropriate processing equipment and inadequate processing technique will cause waste to the materials, and even affect the quality of customized products.
