Ultra-compact surfaces for your counters

Ultra-compact surfaces for your counters

Lapitec

The Lapitec stone is a new revolutionary product. It is a sintered stone made thanks to an advanced and unique transformation process. It is a mix of minerals which have been heated to 1200° and compressed. When we refer to Lapitec, we are talking about ultracompact surfaces. Contrary to its competitor Dekton, Lapitec’s colors and veins are not on an enamelled print which makes the product less scratch-resistant.

More robust and durable than quartz, Lapitec products undergo a true metamorphosis which makes them fully immutable. They resist everything (stains, bacteria, impacts, extreme heat, acid products, frost, thaw and UV radiations). Lapitec can also be installed outside! In addition to being durable and aesthetic, Lapitec counters are also ecological.

Available in a wide range of finishes, textures and colors, Lapitec is appropriate for kitchen counters, fireplace mantels and furniture, and for interior or exterior amenities like floors, walls or terraces.

Maintenance is easy! A simple microfiber cloth to remove dust, a non-abrasive sponge and lukewarm water (which can be mix with a neutral cleaning agent on condition that you rinse it after) to make disappear stains. As for any other type of counter, it is recommended to clean stains as soon as possible and not letting them dry for an optimal result. Avoid oily soaps and waxes, or any product which can contain some, because that would damage the aesthetic aspect of your counter by leaving an oily patina on the surface.

Dekton

Dekton is a sophisticated blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest in glass and porcelain as well as the highest quality quartz work surfaces. Its enamel allows a multitude of prints for different looks that will suit all tastes.

Dekton employs an exclusive Sinterized Particle Technology, a high tech process which represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years.
Sinterized particle technology synthesizes truly innovative procedures from the most advanced technology industries.

Electronic microscopy allows us to fully appreciate the material’s zero porosity, a consequence of the sinterization and ultra-compaction process exclusive to DEKTON. This zero porosity and lack of the micro-defects that cause tension or weak spots mark the difference as far as DEKTON is concerned.

This product is the ideal solution for work surfaces. Like Lapitec, Dekton has a lot of functional qualities. It is stains, bacterium, impact, scratch, UV radiations, abrasion and fire resistant because it is a non-combustible material! Its colors are durable and the adsorption of water is reduced.

Dekton adapts very well to its surroundings thanks to the robustness of its ultracompact surface and to its many other qualities. Therefore, it can be installed in the kitchen, in the bathroom or even outside!

There are many choices for colors and textures, but the final aspect will still be uniform. Dekton also adapts very well different designs and styles, and its beauty will last over time.

Finally, as for its daily maintenance, a sponge or a microfiber cloth, lukewarm water and neutral soap, will be more than enough to clean your counter easily thanks to its near-zero porosity.
