From Natural to Engineered Stone: The Shifting Technology

Yes, you heard that right, engineered stone– more formally known as sintered stone! The technology behind it is quite simple; natural minerals, clay, and feldspar are crushed into a powder and then placed under extremely high heat followed by pressure to create a solid surface. The sintered stone company that HG has proudly partnered with for over 5 years is Neolith, which originated in Spain around 2009.

The remarkable characteristic behind Neolith is its innovative approach towards creating sleek surface designs while sustaining its eco-friendly mission. Neolith offers a variety of colors that mimic the characteristics of natural stone and provides cut-to-size pieces in order to fulfill the creative demands of each individual.


Why you should consider Neolith for countertops, flooring, or wall pieces:

Neolith is…

  • Scratch resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Fire resistant
  • Durable for high-traffic environments
  • Hygienic (its near 0% porosity level prevents the surface from absorbing outside substances such as bacteria)
