Porcelain is the best material for kitchen countertops to meet all daily food preparation requirements.
Non-absorbent, scratchproof porcelain permits better quality than any other material used in the kitchen, while requiring very little maintenance.
For these reasons it is important to choose the material used in the kitchen countertop carefully.
Only too often we have little time available to make lunch or dinner, and so a hygienic, easily cleaned surface becomes a detail that can make a lot of difference in everyday life.
is a new brand in the Iris Ceramic Group
which produces innovative, practical porcelain surfaces
specifically for kitchen countertops
SapienStone brings together all the best properties of today’s kitchen countertops and porcelain surfaces. As a non-absorbent material, porcelain can come into direct contact with foods, with no need to use a cutting board or other supporting surface to prevent contact with food, knives or utensils at high temperatures (pots and pans, coffeepots, etc.).
It is much more resistant to scratching and abrasion than other materials, such as "wood, laminates and quartz surfaces, which are more easily scratched", as well as to the chemical products and acids normally used in the kitchen (vinegar, lemon, etc.).
SapienStone is also appropriate for outdoor use: sunlight, frost and temperature excursions have no effect on its performance or appearance.
The porcelain in SapienStone kitchen countertops is the product of decades of experience on the part of its parent company, the Iris Ceramic Group, a world leader in the production of aesthetic high-tech ceramics.
The SapienStone brand is the product of constant observation and the desire to understand and solve problems with contemporary surfaces. Also intended for professional facilities such as bars and restaurants, SapienStone makes the most of all the benefits of maxi-slabs, for the kitchen countertops are cut from maxi-slabs measuring 320x150 cm and 12 or 20 mm thick.
SapienStone also offers the additional benefits of adaptability and the possibility of customising countertops, peninsulas and islands of all kinds, with measurements taken by a professional.
