Sintered Stone Slab – Carrara

$2,200.00

This sintered stone provides all the benefits of the latest in surface technology, with the look of natural marble.  Don’t be fooled – this is not natural carrara marble, but you would be hard pressed to know upon close inspection.  With new texturing technology, we offer this sintered stone in a variety of textures that feels just like real marble.  Available in large format slabs and thicknesses as small as 1/8″, making it great for wall, floors, countertops, or backsplashes.  Unlike natural marble, this is resistant to scratching, high temperatures, and etching when exposed to acidic foods.  These sintered stone slabs are technically more durable and visually more vibrant than anything on the market.

Sintered stone is an engineered product, and the result of years of research and innovation.  It is made with 100% raw natural ingredients, subjecting them to very high pressure and temperatures.  The raw materials first go through a press where a force of 400 bars is applied.  Then the slabs are backed in an over at more than 1,200°C.

Sintered stone is the latest state-of-the-art architectural surface.  The production process gives sintered stone physical features that separate it from the pack of other building materials.  It can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Using the latest technology, we integrate the color and design throughout the entire slab and the edges, resulting in a full body veining pattern.  A water based decoration technique greatly reduces contaminating emissions put into the environment from traditional printing methods, reducing the carbon footprint.  We focus on every detail when it comes to the patterns of our sintered stone, bringing hyper-realism to the next level.

Environmental

We believe when the building industry sources and manufactures building materials with sustainability in mind, we all live in a healthier world, and we want to do our part.  Sintered stone is ecologically friendly, and can be made from recycled materials.  It does not contain any VOCs, and is better than its non eco-friendly counterparts.

Color Range

This sintered stone resembles carrara marble with great coloring and movement.  It displays the typical colors of whites with gray veining, and some creams.

Visual Pattern:

This carrara sintered stone has the visual pattern variation seen in nature. It is sophisticated with generous angled movement.

For countertops, walls, and floors, carefully selecting the right pattern on the slab for your kitchen or bathroom is needed to achieve the best look.

Texture and Finish:

Sintered stone is a hard material, so it can be finished with a variety of textures.  However, what makes this particular product unique is having a synthetic stone looking just like gray travertine, with a rough, texture finish previously only found in nature.  Therefore, we recommend this product with:

  • a rustic finish with a rough texture

The texture of this sintered stone can also be refined with a smooth surface, so we also offer it with:

  • a satin finish
  • a silk finish
  • a polished finish

The right finish will depend on the specific look you are going for in your project.
