Lapitec Presents Nero Velluto

Posted on 11 November 2020 by cradmin3

Lapitec’s large-scale full body slabs are made from a mixture of minerals with no additional toxic substances or petroleum derivatives. This 100 percent natural composition also defines the chromatic range of the material, which doesn’t come in artificial hues, but rather in an exclusive range of colors called “Assoluto” – absolute – for its deep, rich tone.

New for 2020, Velluto-finish Nero Assoluto in 12- and 20-mm thick slabs has been given an exceptionally delightful texture. Through a mechanical process applied to the surface a matt finish that is warm to the touch is created. According to the company Nero Velluto is perfect for tabletops, accessories, kitchens and bathrooms, or for indoor and outdoor horizontal and vertical coverings and claddings.

The special full body structure of Lapitec slabs ensures that the color remains perfectly even throughout; even if scratched, drilled or cut. Lapitec slabs are water-repellent and heat-, impact-, scratch-, stain-, mold-, solvent- and chemical- resistant.

Lapitec Earns Innovative Material Iconic Award 2018

Posted on 04 December 2018 by cradmin

Davide Ferracin, Lapitec Marketing Manager

Lapitec® full-body sintered stone has earned the title of “Innovative Material” with an Iconic Award 2018: Innovative Architecture prize, an independent, international architecture and design contest founded by the German Design Council.

With five historical categories (Architecture, Interior, Product, Communication and Concept), this year the award was enriched by a new section, Innovative Material, which recognizes the development of sustainable materials that are energy efficient and multi-functional by design. According to the jury, composed of representatives and experts from the architecture and design industries, Lapitec has engaged its eco-friendly DNA and technical qualities in perfect harmony with these standards, making it one of the most innovative products on the market, especially when it comes to ventilated facades.

The potential and merits of full-body sintered stone are seamlessly wed with applications as façade claddings: Lapitec is humidity and UV-ray resistant, self-cleaning, and its extreme hardness makes it particularly resistant to the elements and pollution. In addition, Lapitec has been awarded for its numerous ecological qualities. The 100 percent natural slabs are free from resins or hydrocarbon-based binders, thereby respecting the environment and people. And because the product line does not emit polluting substances, it can be used sustainably, meeting the requirements of various environmental protocols around the globe.

Lapitec Wins German Design Award 2018

Posted on 14 November 2017 by cradmin

Lapitec’s six Arabescati in the Lux, Satin and Lithos finishes have been awarded the 2018 German Design Award in the Kitchen Countertops category.

The German Design Award is one of the most coveted international prizes. The event has grown steadily since its first year, receiving ever higher levels of attention from industry professionals and the general public. The German Design Council makes a point of selecting products and companies that deliver high levels of quality in the design field.

The German Design Award recognition confirms the growing level of appreciation for Lapitec. The kitchen countertops category is one of the most prestigious areas of application of full-body sintered stone, and the importance of the sector is confirmed by the top names in the field of kitchen furniture that have chosen Lapitec. These include Pedini Cucine, which uses full-body sintered stone in the Lux, Satin and Vesuvio finishes for the kitchen countertops and side walls of its Arts & Crafts series.

In a separate application, Valcucine worked with Lapitec to develop Carbontec by Lapitec, an exclusive collection that utilizes a carbon micro woven roving to allow the use of reduced thickness countertops and more slender profiles. Maistri Cucine, on the other hand, opted for Lapitec for its Giza kitchen: a dynamic alternation of Bianco Crema and Ebano, in the Satin finish for its countertops , cabinets and drawer panels. Minotticucine aslo chose Lapitec to create kitchens that combine natural stone and sintered stone in novel ways. And these brands are joined by three more major companies that have chosen to work with full-body sintered stone: Scavolini, Effeti, and PoggenPohl. In fact, to date 2017 has proven to be a particularly significant year for Lapitec, having seen the consolidation of several strategic partnerships including Arredo3, Arrital, Lube and Brummel.

A Video Look at Fabricating Compact Surfaces

Posted on 23 December 2016 by cradmin

This video, produced and offered by Neolith by TheSize, takes a relatively deep look at fabricating ultra-compact/compact surfaces. It discusses the types of equipment that can be used, as well as the blades and tooling required. This information includes CNC machining, waterjet cutting and even the use of hand tools, addressing both wet and dry cutting. It also touches on adhesive qualities needed for installation (including interior versus exterior applications).

It also explains the cutting speeds (both feed speeds and RPM for blades) allowed for different types of cuts and equipment. It discusses making relief cuts when necessary. Support systems for use when cutting or performing other tasks are also touched upon, as well as material handling methods.

Other areas examined are finishing, polishing, edging, sink cut-outs and mounting, among other things.

Of course, the video is specifically referencing the Neolith compact surface product, but the information should be in the ball park for other materials, although manufacturer recommendations should certainly be followed in all cases.
