Notes to editors
Founded in 2009, Neolith® is the market-leading brand of Sintered Stone, a revolutionary product category which has become a material of choice for architects, designers, specifiers and fabricators.
How is Sintered Stone produced?
Neolith® is produced using the very latest in sintering technology, replicating the thousands of years' process by which natural stone is formed in a matter of hours.
The raw materials which form the slab are first subjected to extremely high pressure, going through a pressing machine where a weight of 400 bar is applied. In the second phase of the process, the slab goes through a kiln where temperatures reach more than 1200° C (2200° F).
This process of ultra-compaction creates full-body surfaces with unique technical features.
Neolith® has always been at the forefront of sustainable approaches within all of its manufacturing processes. A 100% natural composition requires an equally ecological production method.
Building on pioneering Neolith® Digital Design (NDD), Neolith has aimed to incorporate organic practice into the way it prints its slabs
Hydro-NDD 2.0 takes the technology to the next level. Using a water-based ink, as opposed to the industry standard solvent based, Neolith has succeeded in offering a sustainable surface which never compromises on the quality expected from its Sintered Stone. All its slabs maintain the same definition and detail of pattern and design.
Tried, tested and trusted, Neolith's combination of realism, high performance and versatile formats make it a go-to material for architects, designers, specifiers and fabricators.
Neolith® is the optimum surfacing material for both indoor and outdoor applications. From a skyscraper façade to a kitchen countertop, Neolith's physical and mechanical characteristics deliver ultimate performance, unmatched beauty and long-term value.
