With the elegance of marble at the fraction of its price and upkeep, sintered tables have proven their longevity both in the style and durability departments. But what exactly is a sintered table, or rather, what is sintered stone? Sintered stone is essentially the next generation of quartz. Much like quartz, sintered stone is made of natural minerals as well, but the improved man-made production process turned sintered stone into a tabletop material that is resistant to water, heat, stains, scratches, chemicals and impact. Unlike plastic-based materials, sintered stone is made without chemicals or sealants, thus it doesn’t emit toxic fumes into the environment when exposed to fire and is also fully recyclable, thus making it an eco-friendlier alternative for furniture.
