To understand what Neolith is we need to understand how it is created. Neolith surfaces are produced using a proprietary technology. This unique technology changes raw materials into a an extremely hard mass of stone-like material. The material can then be used in architecture and interior design projects. The technology used for creating Neolith Ultra Compact is a special method for producing sintered materials. Neolith Ultra Compact Surfaces are very intriguing to those that have not yet heard about Ultra Compact. Why is the the case?

One reason people are interested in Neolith is because it is not a natural stone and it is not an engineered surface. Some even go as far to say that is is the best of all worlds. Notice this quote taken from the Neolith website:

Thanks to the format and physical-mechanical characteristics, this type of product results ideal for limitless indoors and outdoors applications in the commercial and residential area: countertops, flooring, cladding, facades, furniture. Imagination is the only limitation.

You might be wondering how Neolith compares with natural stone surfaces. Natural stone offers some benefits that other materials do not offer. One example is heat resistance and scratch resistance. Of course, materials vary on how scratch resistant they are if they are taken from nature. Neolith on the other hand is produced in a controlled manner. Additionally, it is created to be extremely scratch resistant; using intense heat and pressure. The result is an extremely hard material that is not easily scratched.

Benefits of Neolith

Neolith surfaces are becoming more and more popular because of the advantages they offer. All you have to do is compare this material with other materials to find out if it offers what you would consider to be advantages. Of course, no material is the best for every person in all situations. Yet, here are some things that attract newcomers to the Neolith Ultra Compact:

  • Extremely Versatile
  • Very Durable
  • Highly Stain Resistant
  • Adapts to Temperature Change


Let's briefly summarize each of those benefits. Like natural stone, Neolith is very versatile. In fact, it is used for all sorts of surfaces including:

  • Countertops
  • Flooring
  • Vertical Surfaces


You are no doubt aware that many surfaces are susceptible to scratching. Everyday use for some surfaces can result in the surface becoming dull or hazy. Neolith is very resistant to scratching. This scratch resistance contributes to the durability of Neolith

Resistant to Stains

Neolith is non-porous and is highly stain resistant. Its non-porous surface means liquids stay on the surface and do not penetrate the material. Although substances can dry on Neolith surfaces, they can be removed rather easily by using the appropriate cleaner. Various cleaners are made for counteracting specific types of stain-causing substances. A list of chemicals and/or cleaners that can be used to neutralize stains on the surface of Neolith is available on the company's website.

Fabricating Neolith Ultra Compact Surfaces

Fabricators of natural stone surfaces and other engineered materials have many of the machines that are needed to fabricate Neolith surfaces. However, there are some specific practices and some special kinds of tools that will make fabricating Neolith much more efficient. Let's briefly discuss a couple of these points.

Diamond Blades for Neolith

One of the major tools that a fabricator will need to begin working with Neolith is a blade made for cutting Neolith. Neolith blades are made using special specifications so that they cut very hard materials. They also need to cut quickly and cleanly so they do not slow progress or hurt the finish of the surface.

Even though the proper blade is used, it still must be used properly in order to be effective. Neolith has, no doubt, published best practices to assist fabricators with adjusting to working with this material.

Neolith Care & Maintenance

As mentioned earlier, Neolith surfaces are very stain resistant and can be cleaned using a variety of cleaners. Each cleaner that can be used for a specific type of stain or discoloration can be matched up to the substance on the surface. Some types of cleaners that an be used on Neolith include acids, alkaline cleaners, solvents, and oxidants. All of these cleaner types are acceptable for use on Neolith Each attacks a different type of stain.

It is easy to see why Neolith is so noticeable as an option for a variety of applications. If you haven't heard about the Neolith Ultra Compact material, why not check it out?
