Lapitec® is a sintered* “full body” material (meaning the pattern goes the whole way through), which is produced using 100% natural minerals that can be found in granites and porcelain materials. These carefully selected minerals are then processed using sintering technology and machinery exclusively developed by Breton S.p.A.
The sintering process involves subjecting particles to very high heat and pressure in order to fuse minerals together. This process requires no binding agents helping to provide Lapitec with colour stability, recyclability and almost zero porosity.
Lapitec® is supplied in 3365x1500 mm slabs (133.8”x 59”) with thicknesses of 12, 20 or 30 mm and can be worked and processed using natural stone cutting and working techniques.
