Sintered Stone: The Future of Surface Materials (Sep 15, 2023)

Prayer Request:
Sintered Stone: The Future of Surface Materials Sintered stone is a synthetic surfacing material made entirely of minerals and formed by heat. Unlike engineered stone countertops or quartz countertops, which use resins as binders, sintered stone contains no binders. The materials are heated to such a high temperature and pressed that the minerals fuse, essentially becoming their own binder.Get more news about Sintered Stone,you can vist our website!What is Sintered Stone? Sintered stone is a unique kitchen and bathroom countertop material that combines many of the design and appearance positives of favorites like quartz or granite countertops, while eliminating negatives, like water absorption and heat sensitivity. Sintered stone feels like real stone because it is a hybrid of real stone.How is Sintered Stone Made? Primarily manufactured in Italy, Spain, and China, sintered stone counters start with recycled materials like quartz, porcelain, and glass, along with raw minerals such as zircone, ematite, and albite. These materials are ground to a fine powder. They are fired to extremely high temperatures (over ,000°C or ,8°F) until they sinter—form a cohesive mass short of melting. The sintered materials are formed into sheets under extremely high pressure.Uses of Sintered Stone Around the home, sintered stone is used to make kitchen and bathroom countertops. Sintered stone can be installed on nearly any surface that requires durable, large format materials: flooring, wall cladding, and exterior facades and siding.Cost and Durability Sintered stone countertops cost from $65 to $50 per square foot. To compare, quartz countertops, including installation, cost $50 to $75 per square foot, though they may cost as much as $00 per square foot. Labor to install quartz countertops may cost up to $0 per square foot.Sintered stone is highly durable. Hot pans can rest on sintered stone without melting or scorching the surface. The material can be chopped on, cut on, scratched, stained, and scored, to little or no effect. The sun’s UV rays will not fade sintered stone. Freeze-thaw events will not crack sintered stone.In conclusion, sintered stone is a versatile and durable material that offers a wide range of applications. Its unique properties make it an excellent choice for both interior and exterior applications. With its natural look and feel, it’s no wonder that sintered stone is becoming increasingly popular in modern home design.
