With so many building materials available on the market, it can be difficult to know which is best for your project. Recent technological advances have led to the development of a new and innovative product: sintered surface. This one-hour course is designed for construction professionals to gain a full understanding of sintered surface as an ideal material for countertop and cladding application. Attendees will learn about sintered stone, and under discussion will be a comparison of that material’s characteristics with those of similar materials such as porcelain, quartz surface, and granite.
