What is Sintered Stone

 Sintered stone is a new type of ultra-size porcelain slab made up of natural components, including quartz minerals, clays, feldspar, silica, natural mineral pigments, etc. 

The mineral composition and stone particles are carefully selected based on the quality, color, and texture. 

 

The manufacturing process applies modern advanced technology to imitate the formation of natural stone. The roller machine (over 4,200 tons of weight) presses and shapes the raw materials at a high temperature of more than 1,200°C. This is exactly what marble and granite experienced thousands of years before they were formed. In this way, the particles can be permanently and firmly bonded together without the need for resins or adhesives, perfectly recreating the texture and feel of precious natural stone. 

 

Generally, the sintered stone is made to look like natural materials, such as stones, wood, and other smooth or textured surfaces. And it can withstand high-intensity machining, which includes cutting, drilling, and grinding. Therefore, it is often processed into sintered stone furniture, like sintered stone dining tables, sintered stone countertop, etc.

Advantages of the Sintered Stone

STURDY AND DURABLE

 

With a hardness of over six on the Mohs scale, the sintered stone slab features anti-scratch and won't leave a scar on the smooth surface. It is resistant to corrosion, such as bleaching powder, disinfectant, and other chemical solutions. Significantly extend its service life.

HEALTHY AND SAFE

 

The sintered slab can directly contact with the food, as it is derived from 100% pure natural materials and has reached the food safety level. It is high density with anti-permeability, so it is stain-resistant and can effectively reduce the breeding of bacteria, to ensure the sintered slate will never deteriorate.

HIGH UV RESISTANCE

 

The sintered slab can effectively fight against ultraviolet rays, as it is equipped with water penetration, heat insulation, and frost resistance. Meanwhile, it can maintain the color continuity without fade under long-time wind and sun exposure, a great option for exterior building material.

FIREPROOF AND HEAT-RESISTANCE

 

The sintered slab is classified as A1 fire-rating products which means it is non-combustible. When it directly contact high-temperature objects, there will be no deformation, no physical changes such as contraction, cracking, and discoloration, and no gas or smell in the 2000 ℃ (3632°F) open flame.

EASY TO CLEAN

 

The clean of the slab surface is convenient due to its non-porous structure and low water absorption. Warm water wiping or cleaning is sufficient to keep the surface clean and sanitary. Generally, there is no other special maintenance requirement at a high cost.

FLEXIBLE CUSTOMIZATION

 

The sintered slab can be made of different sizes, textures, and colors, polished or matt, etc. The size of the sintered slab finish can reach 3000*1500mm at present, which can not only speed up the installation process but also enhance the visual effect and upgrade the sense of space.

ENDLESS STYLE

 

Sintered stone can provide innovative elements to architectural decoration design. Variety styles of formats, details, colors, textured surfaces can inspire creativity, to make panel joints, patio, fireplace, TV/Home/Hotel backdrop, and other scenarios more unique.

LIGHTWEIGHT

 

Sintered stone is lighter than the natural stone of the same size, but it doesn't mean the sintered stone is of poor quality or unreliable. Conversely, the manufacturing process can guarantee its hardness and long-lasting lifespan.

Production Process

The sintered stone slab is a new and innovative covering material. It is made of 100% natural minerals, which are pressed by extremely high pressure (over 3900 PSI) and fired (over 1200 ℃) in a kiln. This gives the product outstanding physical and mechanical properties in terms of compaction, resistance, and durability. The production process of sintered stone slab as follows:

01

Material Mixing

The material is 100% natural minerals which consist of quartz, feldspar, silica, and oxides. Quartz and feldspar provide the hardness and strength Silica provides the chemical stability natural oxides provide chromatic properties.

02 

Spreading Minerals on the 

Production Line

The raw materials are spread evenly as large format slabs shape by an advanced spreading machine. And 3 thickness are available: 3mm/6mm/12mm.

03 

Pressing

Each slab is pressed by a pressure of 42000 tons which gives the slab an ultra density.

04

Drying Chamber

All pressed green slab bodies will be transferred into an energy-saving dryer to take out humidity at 180℃

05 

Decoration-digital Printing

After drying, green slab bodies will be decorated with different patterns on the surface by Systems Creadigit BS printing machine.

06 

Sintering

When printing is done, the slabs will be fired over 1200℃ in the kiln, the super high temperature makes the slabs sintered and provides a superhigh breaking strength.

07

Quality Control

If there is such a requirement in order, the slabs will be polished to obtain a shiny and glossy surface finish.

08

Polishing

Each slab will be checked carefully to assure its surface, pattern and glossiness is perfect.

09

Packing

All slabs are handled by a high-tech automatic machine into a secure and strong wooden box.
