Natural mineral surfaces stand up to harsh environments
Exterior cladding made of natural materials that offers long life and durability, including resistance to scratching, offers a variety of use options.
At the 2016 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, Travis Conrad, architectural consultant for building exteriors at THE SIZE, reviewed some of the characteristics of NeoLith material.
Conrad noted that NeoLeith is made with Sintering technology, which consists of subjecting the 100 percent natural raw materials to very high pressures and temperatures. The combination of raw materials goes through a press in a first phase where force/pressure of up to 400 bars is applied. In a second phase, the boards are baked in an oven at a temperature of more than 1,200ºC.
The material is offered in four different finishes: satin, silk, riverwashed and polished.
