Lapitec® is a unique material for design and architecture. The success of the product is based on features that respond perfectly to market trends, as well as an obvious focus on sustainability, both in the raw materials used and the stages of the production process.
Lapitec® is a mixture of 100% natural minerals, which when baked at high temperatures produce “full-body” slabs. The exterior and interior are identical, without enamel or digital printing on the surface. This feature allows Lapitec® to be machined across its full thickness while ensuring consistent appearance and performance, as well as avoiding the use of resins, inks and other petroleum derivatives.
With an innovative technology supported by 25 patents, Lapitec® offers design versatility and the guarantee of an excellent aesthetic result, combined with optimum technical performance.
Lapitec® slabs, 3,365 millimeters long, are available in three collections, 17 colors and seven surface textures, and also can be customized. They are used not only as an indoor and outdoor surface covering, but also for rooftops, yachts, swimming pools and product design ― from tables to consoles and from bathrooms to kitchens, in which the nonporous surface makes Lapitec® ideal in terms of hygiene and ease of maintenance. Lapitec® is a valuable material suitable to numerous uses and the ideal support for international architects and designers.
In recent years, Lapitec® slabs have been used for public buildings, residential complexes, infrastructure, places of worship and marine applications, but also for creating – in collaboration with other design brands – kitchens, outdoor furniture, tables and next-generation technologies.
Since the beginning of its activity, Lapitec S.p.A. has promoted environmental responsibility by using natural production materials.
Lapitec® slabs are a 100% natural product. The homogeneous raw materials mixture is made mainly with natural minerals, without any chemical products. During all production processes, all binders are avoided, and thanks to Breton technology, large-size slabs can be produced without chemical ingredients.
Thanks to its formula, Lapitec® responds correctly to the criteria of sustainability that are promoted in the BREEAM, LEED and most internationally known certification systems. It also is accompanied by an Environmental Product Declaration, which evaluates the entire life cycle of building materials, with a particular attention to the use of resources such as energy and water, as well as emissions on water, air and soil.
