Sintered stone worktops are often referred to as ceramic worktops or porcelain worktops. We are approved fabricators and installers of the market leaders of these tops such as Neolith, Dekton, Laminam,Lapitec, Infinity stone, Coverlam, Xstone and Porcelthin. We have been fabricating these products for over 4 years now. R.O Surfaces was one of the first companies in the North East of England to start using these surfaces. Even still to this day a lot of companies wont deal with it because of the fabricating issues that occur with it.
So we often get asked what is sintered stone and why should we use it?
It is a 100% natural material based on 3 groups of natural elements:
1. Granite Minerals: Quartz and Feldspar which grants hardness and strength to the product.
2. Glass Minerals and Silica which grants chemical stability.
3. Natural oxides which grants chromatic properties
Amongst other things it is also

Resistant to high temperatures
Resistant to staining
Resistant to detergents
Resistance to chemicals
Resistance to thermal shock
Resistance to freezing-defrosting

It is a very versatile product which can be used in a variety of situations we have adopted this surface and use it for kitchen worktops and splashbacks, Bathroom walls full cladded with chain linked material (where the veins will run right around the room), Vented Facades, furniture and much more!
