Sintered Stone promotes health in the built environment as it's hydrophilic qualities and stain-resistant surface prevent viruses, bacteria, and dirt from thriving. The material itself is eco-friendly, produced with 100% natural minerals and no resins or petroleum derivatives. It is also a low silica surface. Because it uses 100% natural minerals it is safe to prepare and eat on and requires no chemical sealants to be used on the surface. At the end of its life, some sintered stone is fully recyclable, making it a closed loop material that is healthier for the environment.
