Lapitec® is an innovative “full bodied” sintered stone. Available in large format slabs, it unites aesthetic design appeal and the superior mechanical and physical properties of porcelain with the elegance, workability, colours and typical finishes of natural stone. Lapitec® is the ideal solution for architecture and design. It’s Italian heritage portrays powerful contemporary design as well as a more classic appeal, overcoming structural and stylistic constraints and meeting the aesthetic sensitivity of designers.
The material’s technical properties and its inherent ability to be easily worked make
Lapitec® the ideal solution for kitchen worktops, wall cladding, flooring, stairs and fireplaces. By combining the full potential of porcelain material with the colours and finishes typical of natural stone, Lapitec® is capable of standing out in its environment as well as providing a harmony with natural surroundings.
Eternal and insensitive to weather and atmospheric conditions, Lapitec® effectively combines physical and mechanical strength with unequalled aesthetic excellence. These characteristics alongside its lightness and strength, allow the material to be used for external cladding and in both ventilated and continuous façades.
Lapitec® is produced in slabs measuring 3365×1500 mm and with calibrated thicknesses of 12, 20 or 30 mm. With 5,05 m2 per slab, Lapitec® is the biggest sintered stone available on the market.
Lapitec® provides the most suitable and diverse solutions for construction and furnishing, with the
Lapitec® is non porous and therefore resistant to staining, mould and bacteria. Lapitec® ’s resistanceto these factors means it is easily cleaned. dimensions required by designers. Being a “full bodied” material it is easy to work and can be utilized in countless applications: from internal and external cladding to pavements, from kitchen tops to ventilated façades.
Lapitec® is a product that is long lasting and completely weather proof. Every slab is resistant to acids, alkalis, deep abrasions, fire, frost and is unaffected by UV rays. It is also resistant to graffiti.
Lapitec® is produced with maximum respect for both people and the environment. It is completely inert, containing no resins or petroleum derivatives.
The Bio-Care technology gives Lapitec® the ability to breakdown and to wash away the organic atmospheric particles which deposit on the surface with a bactericidal effect: this result is obtained by incorporating a special form of Titanium dioxide (Ti02) during the Lapitec® production. Titanium dioxide is a catalyst which degrades organic matter through oxidation thanks to the reaction to natural sunlight or artificial lighting (photocatalysis).
Furthermore, it gives Lapitec® hydrophilic properties promoting a washing effect to remove the polluting particles from the surface. This important feature allows us to define the surfaces of the Lapitec® as “self-cleaning” and to consider it the perfect choice for locations where you have to guarantee a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene with anti-polluting and selfcleaning properties.
