Neolith ... provided in large-format slabs for use in kitchen tops and bathrooms.

SPANISH sintered stone products from Neolith used for kitchen countertops, wall cladding and bathroom surfaces are now offered in the UAE by Glaze Granite & Marble.

Neolith is a superior alternative for ceramic and porcelain stone, due to its durability, versatility, and unparalleled design quality, says the company, which is considered to be the UAE’s largest marble importer. It is the most technologically advanced surface solution known today, it adds.

Founded in 2009, Neolith is the leading brand in sintered stone. The revolutionary product has become the material of choice for architects, designers, specifiers, and fabricators, says Daniel Sanchez, Neolith’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“It is indeed a revolutionary product. When we launched it, most people had doubts about its ultra large size, ultra-thin dimensions, strength, and durability. Some people also mistook the product for porcelain. But, today, Neolith is the most fashionable and sought-after engineered stone due to its durability, versatility, and breathtaking designs. We are extremely busy fulfilling orders from around the world,” Sanchez adds.

Neolith is resistant to high and low temperatures, scratches, and ultraviolet (UV) rays. It is also easy to clean and maintain as it is waterproof, hygienic, lightweight and 100 per cent natural. It is produced in large format slabs with four different thickness options, he says.

Glaze Granite & Marble CEO Umesh Punia says this partnership with Neolith displays its commitment to contribute to the UAE’s influential architectural legacy while providing sustainable solutions for architects, developers, and builders.

“Over these last two decades, we have re-shaped the natural stone business in the UAE by radically transforming the way in which marble and natural stones were imported, sold and traded in the region. We work tirelessly to ensure consumers find their unique surface solutions through our brand, no matter how rare or exclusive the products may be,” he adds.
