About Neolith

Neolith Is


DURABLE
When it comes to durability Neolith tops any other surface. It resists the hottest temperatures, even direct flames and won’t cause hazardous fumes. With its near 0% porosity, it is a hygienic surface that is resistant to acidic liquids and tough cleansers. Neolith is resistant to staining, scratching, bending and is UV resistant.

VERSATILE
Neolith is the largest sintered compact surface on the market today. Perfect a wide range of applications, large slab size options allow for fewer joints and excellent mechanical properties. Slab sizes are 126”x59” and are available in 12mm and 6mm thicknesses. Its light weight makes it easy to transport, handle and install, minimizing freight and installation costs. It’s resistance to stains, uv rays, high temperatures and its near 0% porosity allow for versatile applications from kitchens, vanities, shower walls, and flooring; to table tops, cabinet facing and furniture; to signage and exterior cladding.

SUSTAINABLE
Neolith is eco-friendly and manufactured to the strictest environmental standards – composed entirely of natural clays, feldspar, silica and mineral oxides. It’s long-lasting colors come from 100% natural pigments and it’s completely recyclable into raw materials for other uses while still providing resistance to stains, uv rays and high temperatures. Neolith emits no VOCs, toxic fumes or harmful substances, and is hygienic for surfaces in contact with food with its near 0% porosity. Neolith provides a 10 year warranty on registered countertops.

BEAUTIFUL
Naturally colorful and attractive, Neolith is available with several finishes and a wide range of colors that originate from the pigmentation of the raw materials that make up each slab, which guarantees color stability over time with its near 0% porosity and resistance to stains, uv rays and high temperatures.

Main Uses


COUNTERTOPS
With its remarkable resistance to heat, scratching, uv rays, staining and near 0% porosity rate, Neolith is the ideal surface for kitchens, baths, exterior kitchens and entertaining areas like bar tops.

FLOORING
With its near 0% porosity, Neolith is durable enough for heavy transit areas such as kitchens, entryways, exterior patios and pool decks with resistance to uv rays, high temperatures, and staining. Light, with fewer joints, it’s also perfect for elevated flooring.

INTERIOR WALL CLADDING
Wainscoting, shower and batch wet walls, fireplace surrounds, entry accent walls. Neolith is the best choice for any wall that requires a durable, lightweight, large format surface.

EXTERIOR CLADDING
Neolith is light, resistant uv rays, high temperatures and staining. With its near 0% porosity and high color retention, Neolith keeps maintenance costs to a minimum. Plus, its large slab dimensions facilitate rapid coverage of the whole surface area with lower freight and installation costs.

FURNITURE
The ultimate combination of unique aesthetics and performance makes Neolith ideal for tables, cabinet facing, benches, case goods and shelving. Its remarkable durability, near 0% porosity and resistance to stains, uv rays and high temperatures also make it ideal for exterior furnishings.

HYGIENIC ENVIRONMENTS
Neolith gives off no VOCs or harmful substances with near 0% porosity, and is resistant to uv rays and high temperatures. It’s ideal for large surface areas that need to be covered in a durable, hygienic, stain resistant, easy-to-clean material.

Environmentally Friendly


AN ECO-SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT

100% Natural: Made with natural clay, feldspar, silica and mineral oxides, Neolith does not emit toxic gases into the atmosphere when exposed to fire or extremely high temperatures.

100% Recyclable: Due to its natural composition, Neolith can be recycled.
Up to 52% of any Neolith board is comprised of recycled raw materials.

Near-zero porosity: With a porosity of less than 0.08%, Neolith prevents absorption of liquids, meaning it is a hygienic product that is resistant to bacteria that accumulate on the surface, in seams and joints, and can cause disease and allergies.

Less raw materials = less erosion: Neolith boards are made of less raw materials than other product categories because of the thinness meaning it reduces the erosion of the soil where they are found.

Lower CO2 emissions: A thin board means a lighter slab. With Neolith, it’s possible to transport more than double the surface quantity than it is for thicker products like marble, granite and quartz. The lower weight and thinness of the load means more efficient transport, thereby considerably reducing our CO2 emissions.

Optimized energy consumption: The high resistance of Neolith to extremely high and low temperatures means it is ideal for ventilated façades. The thermal insulation and ventilation between a Neolith façade and the very building considerably optimizes the building’s energy consumption (up to 40%).

CERTIFICATES

Greenguard Certification (previously known as GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification): It certifies that Neolith meets the established chemical emissions limits which contributes to a healthier environment.

Greenguard Gold Certification (previously known as GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification): It certifies that Neolith is suitable for use in places like schools and medical centers.

EC (European Commission) Certification: It ensures Neolith meets the European health and safety environmental protection requirements.

LEED Points Earner: LEED, Leader in Energy and Environmental Design, is a program that provides third-party verification of sustainable buildings. Neolith meets the preliminary safety requirements and earns points to help consumers reach the desired level of certification for their homes or business projects.

A member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC): The USGBC, a council which is supervised by LEED, gathers defenders of sustainable policies and practices.

10-year Warranty: Neolith is a high quality product manufactured under environmentally-friendly conditions and with manufacturing techniques that foster the reliability and prestige of the worktops produced. Neolith offers a 10-year warranty on its worktops.
