What is Neolith?
Neolith is the outcome of a selection of the best raw materials and a revolutionary highly technological production process known as sinterization. Thanks to these elements and to several exhaustive quality controls along the chain, a Sintered Stone of large format and minimum thickness with extraordinary characteristics is obtained.
Often confused with Porcelain the difference between Neolith and traditional ceramics is evident by just comparing the characteristics. Although traditional ceramics might have a similar, single characteristic, none of them have all the typical characteristics of Neolith, like stain, scratch, chemical and heat resistance all in one product. It already starts with the raw materials, although consisting of similar ingredients and obtained from comparable sources; the raw materials for Neolith are finer and more pure, to guarantee a more uniform product.
The machinery used to process these raw materials is one of a kind, designed specifically for Neolith. The production line is fitted with state of the art equipment with the latest technology, to ensure a high quality product.
The raw materials are pressed at a significantly higher pressure to obtain a denser material. Afterwards, the pressed material are fired for almost 2 hours, substantially longer than traditional ceramics, which have firing cycles of around 40 minutes. These longer firing cycles create a product with a stronger, nonabsorbent surface.
All these improvements in both raw materials and production techniques result in an enhanced product, with superior technical characteristics as is Neolith.
