Remodeling?

Remodelling is the process of renovating or making additions to your house with a

proper plan. This helps to add an aesthetic value to every corner of your house.

A remodel takes its sweet time that much is assured. In order to completely and

safety rework a kitchen or bathroom, you have to tear out much of its surface,

possibly rework and reroute the plumbing, install new facilities from stoves to

bathtubs, and finally, get it all to look good with the right matching surface, worktop,

and more.

A new surface material hailing from

Spain has been turning heads in the

bathroom and kitchen surface world,

and for good reasons – NEOLITH

Aside from the time constraint,

remodelers also have to argue

the merits and cons of certain

materials with customers. Some

stones and metals are harder to

source than others, and carry

more risk during installation. All

the same, however, a new

surface material hailing from

Spain has been turning heads in

the

bathroom

surface world, and for good

reasons – Neolith, as the new

material has been dubbed, has

the unique ability to be very

easily and without much worry

be installed on top of existing

countertop surfaces. This is due

to its unique thinness and long

list of surprising resistances,

making it an amazing material to

work with.

Enter Neolith

What Makes Neolith

Great?

Neolith is a new type of surface,

crafted as a form of porcelain from a

large collection of 100 percent natural

stone materials including clay, silica,

and feldspar. The word translates into

“new

stone”

and

representative of its unique and

pioneering vision– to create an

entirely natural yet completely new

kind of stone that is ultra-resistant to

a wide range of stressors and

pressures, and suitable in all forms of

aesthetic and functional use, from the

remodelling industry and kitchen

works

to

construction

architecture.

Created by Spanish company The Size,

and available for installation as Neolith

worktops and floors all over the world

through reputed companies, like MKW

Surfaces, Neolith sports a number of

incredible material characteristics that

makes it absolutely wonderful to work

with. As per the company itself, Neolith

sports an amazing resistance to very

high temperatures, such as the inability

to burn or stain when caught in flames,

and a resistance to staining or fading

through sunlight.

is

and

Speaking of light, Neolith is surprisingly

light. A square meter of 12 millimeters

in thickness weighs just 30 kilograms, or

roughly 66 pounds –that’s three

kilograms less than granite and several

grams less than marble, as per the

HiBiD material weight calculator.

The reason this is so significant,

however, has little to do with the actual

weight of the material relative to

another material of the same size – it

has more to do with the fact that

Neolith can be cut and delivered in sizes

as thin as 3, 6 and 12 mm, much thinner

than your average slab of granite or

marble and yet just as or more resistant

to pressures, scratches and cracking.

This means that Neolith is that much

more economically advantageous to

both transport as sell/buy, as it allows

for more Neolith slab orders to be

moved at a single time, while allowing

homeowners and building managers

the luxury of keeping their costs lower

for a high-quality product by buying a

thinner slab.

How Neolith is Made

Neolith, as per the company crafting the

boards, is made through the complex

process of sintering. It involves taking a

precise and stable mixture of minerals

and melting them down into pressed

slabs at extremely high temperatures,

tempering the material and creating a

natural hybrid porcelain slab composed

of clay, feldspar and other minerals.

It doesn’t stop there. Due to an uncanny

hardness for such a light material,

Neolith is very scratch resistant, and

suitable for heavy traffic – such as the

kind of foot traffic that is to be expected

in areas like subways.

Because of the use of sintering, the

mechanical properties of Neolith are

unmatched in construction, making it

the perfect façade slab for nearly any

job, from the massive foyer of a

corporate building to the creation of

beautiful scratch and impact-resistant

bathroom sinks.

Its hardness and composition lends it

another excellent durability quality–

namely its resistance to pressure and

bending, as well as a very high modulus

of rupture.

The properties a stone material typically

wants to have include a balance of

hardness and give to prevent cracking

under

pressure

vibration, as well as a surface that

allows for both waterproofing and a

resistance to natural acids and bases

and typical cleaning materials. Stain-

resistant stone is also preferred, which

is why Neolith’s property as being made

of sintered natural stone is so valuable.

Due to its non-porous nature, Neolith is

both entirely waterproof and, even

means it does not release anything

laminate surface might.

Finally, Neolith is offered in various

surface finishes to offer a variance in

texture and look for different usages.

Among these four available finishes,

two are suitable for flooring, both

interior and exterior – these are the

riverwashed and satin variants.

Riverwashed Neolith is rougher, made

to look much more interesting than

the other types. Satin is matte, and

very resistant.

The other two finishes include silk and

polished – both are nearly immaculate,

easily cleaned, and designed for

visually-attractive

bathroom surfaces. It’s also patterned

and

How Does It Hold Up

to Other Surfaces?

Neolith is unique in the fact that it can

very easily be installed onto other

surfaces at an increase of just a few

millimeters in height, due to the

thinness of available slabs. This allows

homeowners, building managers and

business owners alike the luxury of

saving themselves the cost and time

associated with tearing out a material

surface, instead simply overlaying it

with Neolith slabs.

Its lightness doesn’t just make it an

amazing surface for countertops – it

can even be placed onto cabinets. Yes,

that’s right. Cutting it to size allows you

the luxury of attaching a lightweight,

extremely resistant stone façade onto

your cabinets, making them look flush

with your countertop and really

finishing off the look of beauty in your

home.

Is It Really the Next

Big Thing?

Despite its typical gray-to-off-white

look, Neolith also comes with the

aesthetical benefit of being available in

a large variety of colors and textures,

meaning you can switch up the color

on various surfaces including the

surface of your kitchen floor, letting

you utilize Neolith all throughout your

home without it really looking like the

This may be the next big thing, or it may

is it strong, and attractive – but most

importantly, Neolith is a product that

puts above all else its cost-effectiveness

for both the distributor and the end

customer.

And that right there is what’s called

“economic incentive”. Through that, a

material and a concept – can truly grow

into a visionary new standard for the

industry. But only time will really tell if a

stone like Neolith can open up a whole

new array of possibilities for other

companies looking into recycling their

materials and creating cost-effective

remodeling options.
