Porcelain Materials, also referred as Sintered Stone are known as an “ultra-compact surface”.
It’s a brand new type of countertop surface that is created with a unique fabrication process called Sinterized Particle Technology. The process involves mixing the raw materials under extreme pressure and heat. We’re talking compressors that squash at 5900 psi (pounds per square inch) and ovens that reach 2191ºF (1200ºC).
These advanced techniques mean that Porcelain/Sintered Stone is Scratch, Stain and Heat proof.
The textures and patterns on these materials are printed on the surface meaning they do not run through the entire thickness.
