What is a Sintered Stone?
Sintering is a process that involves the compaction of an aggregate’s particles into a hardened mass by heat and pressure. This process makes it possible to create products with a variety of textures, colors, and patterns. Sintered stone is tough as rock, weatherproof, unaffected by heat or cold. It is very hard to chip, scratch or damage, and easy to clean.
There is a variety of colors to choose from. The best part is that you can work with your architect or interior designer to choose which color would best suit the room’s style. The sintered stone slabs create an aura of modern charm. Their special material and rich range of colors and tones are captivating.
Endless Color Options
You can also get a slice to fit in your bathroom or use it on the back wall for some visual interest that’s sure to make guests take notice. It will instantly become their favorite spot in the house. Sintered stone is both strong and delicate at the same time. It can span from light to dark hue, depending on how it’s processed.
The sintering process leaves some small natural holes that are filled with glass particles during production for an added touch of character. Because of this, these “pores” allow the stone to breathe and resist mold growth.
Maintenance of Sintered Stone
- It is easy to clean in comparison with other natural stones that require a lot of scrubbing. You can wipe the surface easily with soap and water or a stone cleaner.
- It’s so easy to maintain! You can place your kitchen sink on it, lay down any type of chair – even an office desk – without worrying about scratching the slab surface.
- Your only major maintenance is from spills and splashes that may be left behind while cooking in the kitchen or dinner parties with friends.

Sintered Stone vs. Quartz Stone
Many people might be wondering what sintered stone is and how it compares to quartz. Quartz stones are a type of artificial stone that offers many benefits compared to natural stones like granite, marble, or limestone. One significant benefit is its cost efficiency; as more companies can produce them at higher rates for less money than natural stones, quartz is much more affordable. Quartz also offers a wide range of colors and textures that sintered stone doesn’t have.
However, one downside to choosing quartz over natural stones like granite or marble is the material composition. At the same time, many people find this appealing as it does not require sealing (which will increase the cost); some people prefer the natural look and feel of granite or marble. Quartz will also scratch more easily than sintered stone as it is softer, so if you are someone who can’t stand seeing scratches in your furniture (or carpets), then quartz might not be for you.
Sinter Stone countertops have become popular due to their resistance to heat, cold and environmental factors. While they are a more expensive option than some other materials like granite or marble, the cost is lower over time because of their longevity.
