Ultra-compact worktops are made of sintered stone, a revolutionary new material that replicates all the appealing aesthetic qualities of natural stone such as marble and granite, but which improves on their structural strength, hardness and density.
Natural granite stone minerals such as quartz and feldspar, provide the strength. Silica, glass and porcelain provide stability. Natural oxides are blended in during the manufacturing process to provide the desired colours, veins and textures.
Ultra-Compact worktops are completely UV resistant and their heat resistance surpasses any other worktop material available. It is an almost indestructible material that is perfect for worktops, floor and wall cladding, furniture, facades, stairs and a multitude of other hardwearing surfaces and architectural or building applications, both indoors and outdoors.
The wide array of colours and veins are embedded throughout the material for the ultimate luxurious appearance, colour stability and colour matching across slabs and eliminates the need for edging.
Because of its immense strength and hardness, Ultra-Compact worktops can be manufactured in larger sheets than other worktop materials, making it incredibly versatile. It is also possible to use thinner slabs, thereby reducing weight and cost.
