Why Iron Corten is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
Thin, durable and incredibly tough stone surfaces like the rusty Iron Corten ceramic worktops make for a great alternative to granite and quartz. Not only are they just as sturdy and long-lasting as other stone worktops, these surfaces are exclusively available in 12mm thicknesses (6mm and even 3mm may be obtainable upon request). This means the realm of new applications unlocked for these lightweight products is extremely broad, encompassing vast projects. From wall cladding to layering kitchen cabinets, ceilings or even furniture.
Sintered-stone, commonly known as ceramic or porcelain, is predominantly utilised for kitchen worktops. It’s the supreme properties that truly make them stand out. Ceramic worktops are exquisitely simple to clean and maintain; they can withstand mechanical damage; but above all, their heat resistance is matched by granite alone. After all, these products are wrought by the fusion of vast additives: powdered quartz, ground minerals, waste raw materials and other heat-resistant particles. As such, the boiling water, hot oil, burning pots and pans won’t bring ceramic worktops any harm.
The metallic effect & worn Iron Corten kitchen ceramic worktops are made to provide its users comfort and an ease of cooking. Their sole purpose is to withstand and endure the risks brought about by everyday use of kitchen facilities. Today, ceramic kitchen worktops are one of the strongest kitchen countertop options on the market. And a remarkable decor alternative to fragile paint, tiles or wallpaper.
What thicknesses are available for Iron Corten?
The slabs of Iron Corten by Neolith are available in 12mm or 20mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
Any stone surface available in 12mm (or under) is also ideal for wall, kitchen cabinet or even furniture cladding. These thin surfaces are equally as strong as their thicker counterparts, except their weight is severely reduced.
Consequently, they are superb products used to clad ceilings, walls, stairs as well as bathtubs, bathroom equipment, swimming pools or other waterproofed areas. Thanks to their low-weight attribute, they are likewise utilised to decorate furniture, or more commonly kitchen cabinets. These fragile elements benefit from the low mass as their delicate hinges and fittings don’t buckle under the weight. Meanwhile they are continuously protected from dirt, grime, or unintentional scratches, making them very desirable.
What makes Iron Corten so unique?
Product colour description:
A rusty colour, like on this Iron Corten ceramic, is exceptional and rare, inspired by the raw, red colour of oxidised iron. Many people adore this vintage, industrial look. And thanks to stone kitchen worktops, now they can safely incorporate it into their kitchens, without involving the dirty, unsafe and unhygienic genuine rusted metal. These rustic tones sublimely coexist among contemporary and traditional furniture. But above all, when worked into kitchen countertops, they draw the eyes of every beholder.
Material structure & composition:
The metallic effect, a feature of Iron Corten, has only been a recent invention, commonly applied to ceramic tops. The effect gives off a rough, rusty, worn look, ideal for interiors with an industrial feel, but not only. It complements traditional kitchens that utilise wood, stone and raw metal for decorative purposes. This worktop style is meant to stand out, as the breath-taking centrepiece of every interior.
Material recommended for:
- Traditional & contemporary interiors,
- Wall & floor cladding,
- Vintage kitchens decorated with wood & stone.
The worn effect, present on Iron Corten above, is reminiscent of rough, brushed materials like unpolished metal, stone or concrete. It’s a rugged style, filled with ‘bruised’ patches that appear scrubbed or worn-out. It’s made for lovers of hoarse, raw traits attributed to decorative resources. These materials fit well into modern kitchens known for inclusion of contrasting, polished, materials or those inclusive of wood, brick, slate, copper or iron elements.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops,
- Coffee table tops,
- Interiors rich in brick, slate, wood & copper.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
‘Satin’ i.e. matte finish is exclusive to the rusty Iron Corten by Neolith – a coarse feel that replaces the standard polish usually seen on other stone worktops. Products finished with the satin look are popular among those who desire less synthetic, porcelain glaze and more stone-like naturality in their kitchens. The deceptiveness of satin finish gives the impression of delicate, soft feel, but in actual fact the stone matches the hardness of a diamond. A matte look is superb for those who desire a less refined, organic edge to their kitchen.
