What is Sintered Stone?

Sintered stone is the new kid on the stone block. Beautiful, practical and affordable sintered stone is becoming the material of choice with both designers and homeowners. Brands such as Neolith, XTONE by Porcelanosa, Infinity Surfaces, Lapitec and Dekton by Cosentino are using sintered stone for everything from kitchen worktops to pool tiling.

Traditional natural stones such as marble and granite are formed over thousands of years but due to recent technological advancements, sintered stone slabs can be formulated in just a few hours. Minerals and stone particles like the ones found in porcelain or granite are carefully 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 where granite is formed. When the process is finished, the particles are pressed together permanently, without the need for resins or bonding agents.

Sintered stone is almost undistinguishable from natural stone. Tough as rock, its other qualities are:

  • Weatherproof
  • Unaffected by heat or cold
  • Waterproof
  • Stainproof
  • Very hard to chip, scratch or damage
  • Easy to clean
  • Food safe and hygienic
  • Non-porous - doesn't need sealing

Because sintered stone is so durable, it can be used by manufacturers in a wide range of industries, just like natural stone. The brands Sintered Stone by SEH Interiors promote, use sintered stone for:

  • Kitchen worktops
  • Bathroom vanities
  • Wall cladding
  • Flooring
  • Stairs
  • Patios and outdoor flooring
  • Exterior wall cladding
  • Fireplace surrounds
  • Swimming pool tiling
  • Spas and wet rooms

Our manufacturers have dedicated teams who are fully trained to help you select the right sintered stone for your purpose. They are expert in cutting the stone and fitting it to ensure you have a beautiful, seamless finish.
