Lux is Latin for ‘light’, making it a particularly apt moniker for this range of highly polished, mirrored surfaces. An ideal choice for modern, brightly decorated kitchens.
Practical, long-lasting and hygienic
The construction of Lapitec® sintered stone kitchen surfaces is such that it delivers both style and high performance. After all, what good is a bright, exciting kitchen worktop, if it is damaged or stained in the first month after installation? When you buy a Lapitec® surface, you are buying longevity and resistance, something which other kitchen surfaces are often unable to offer to the same degree.
Acidity, for example, has historically been an Achilles Heel of other stone or porcelain kitchen surfaces on the market. Everyday kitchen spills like fruit juice or vinegar can cause damage over time to unprotected natural stone or ceramic surfaces; staining or eroding if the spill is not dealt with fast enough, or is repeated multiple times. The unique construction of Lapitec® surfaces provides resistance to not only acid, but also bases, so your kitchen surface will survive any variety of everyday spill unscathed.
But that’s not the only boon that the unique makeup and construction of Lapitec® surfaces provide. Lapitec® is also resistant to frost, impact, compression, abrasion and UV light, and is entirely non-flammable. In essence, Lapitec® will pass the test of time. Being as hard-wearing as this is definitely a positive attribute in what will probably be one of the most frequently used surfaces in your home, but natural stone and ceramic have traditionally been a pain to clean; with tiny pores in the surface providing bacteria and mould with a place to hide and propagate. This is also not the case with Lapitec® surfaces, being pore free, they are both more hygienic and easier to clean than other comparable alternatives.
