SINTERED STONESintered Stone is a great outdoor material as it is extremely heat resistant and scratch resistant which can be placed in full outdoor spaces.
Sintered Stone is manufactured in a way which mimics the processes that form natural stones. Minerals and stone particles are selected for quality, colour and texture. These particles are then subject to extreme heat and pressure – just like they would be deep in the earth’s crust for thousands of years, but achieved much quicker. When the process is finished, the particles are bonded together permanently, without the need for resins or bonding agents, to create Sintered Stone.
What are the benefits of Sintered Stone?
To the untrained eye, Sintered Stone is almost impossible to distinguish from natural stone – unless it’s been made in some unlikely colour or pattern! Benefits of Sintered Stone include:
- Outdoor resistant
- Unaffected by heat or cold
- Very hard to chip, scratch or damage
- Easy to clean
- Food safe and hygienic
- Non-porous which means the stone doesn’t need sealing
