Sintered stone is becoming an interior finish product of choice for many building types. Its proven properties of being a natural, lightweight material available in many different colors and surface appearances is getting the attention of architects and interior designers. Its long-term durability and ageless properties make it an excellent choice for those concerned not only with controlling first costs but also life-cycle costs. The common thinset method of attachment makes it familiar and easy to install, maintain, and replace if needed. In short, it is likely to continue to grow in use and popularity in commercial, residential, and institutional buildings because of its appealing variety of design and performance characteristics.
