LOTTE Unveils New Sintered Surface Line in U.S.

Jan 14, 2020

LOTTE Chemical Corporation
will expand its surface options with the launch of an entirely new category of
product – the Locelain® sintered-stone collection. The new Locelain ultra-compact surfaces
will feature a high-quality natural stone look and superb durability. The new
collection will be available for purchase in the U.S. starting in the second
quarter of 2020, available from LOTTE’s nationwide network of distributors.

The
versatile Locelain ultra-compact collection will provide a new complementary
option to LOTTE’s existing collections – Radianz® quartz and Staron® solid surfaces. The
new Locelain surfaces will be available in multiple sizes, including large-format
sheets to minimize the number of joints providing improved aesthetics and
hygienic advantages. The new line will feature nine exquisite colors initially,
ranging from stunning to subtle. Key attributes include:

·       Resistance
to UV rays – maintaining its color even when used outdoors

·       Resistance
to extreme temperatures – will not scorch or crack in high or low temperature
environments

·       Resistance
to scratches – ideal for use in kitchens

·       Resistant
to damage from high pressure and heavy weight loads

·       Stain
proof – resistant to household chemicals

·       Non-porous
and waterproof – never needs to be sealed

·       Hygienic

·       Easy to
clean

LOTTE’s sustainable manufacturing capabilities deliver
superior design aesthetics through sintering of 100-percent environmentally-friendly,
natural ceramic materials into super-hard sheets through intense heat and
pressure. Locelain surfaces are suitable for architectural use, including
building exteriors, flooring, furniture, as well as residential countertops,
and surfaces within offices, retail environments, restaurants, and healthcare
facilities.

“Our
new Locelain sintered-stone surfaces are second to none when it comes to
striking designs that both professional designers and homeowners will love,”
said John Kim, director, LOTTE Chemical Corp. “The superior engineering of
Locelain delivers a product that is designed to be extremely durable and
maintain the quality of its appearance for many years.”
