The Sky’s the Limit with Neolith

The Sky’s the Limit with Neolith

March 24, 2015

Ultra-compact Neolith surfacing is one of the world’s top performing façade materials in the building industry today. This incredibly versatile material is changing the landscape as architects and builders conceive of new ways to use this “super hero” of a material.

What makes Neolith so wonderful for exterior use? First of all, it’s resistant to every climate and extreme weather condition imaginable. It won’t discolor or weaken after decades (and beyond) in the sun or extreme heat or cold. It’s also strong enough to stand up to harsh chemicals and abrasion. Plus, it’s completely fire resistant. If Neolith comes into contact with fire, it won’t burn or emit smoke or fumes.

Beyond its durable characteristics that ensure its longevity, Neolith is also a very easy building material to transport and fabricate. Neolith comes in exceptionally large, ultra-thin panels. But despite its large size, it has a tremendously light weight. These traits make Neolith far more efficient and easier to move and handle than traditional cladding materials. This can help cut down on transportation and fabrication costs, plus allows for very long stretches of walls without seams or joints.

And although it’s ultra light, Neolith has a high shear rate. This means it can handle very heavy loads and pressure, making it quite possibly the most efficient building material around.

Neolith comes in an extensive variety of colors and finishes. This, combined with its versatility and strength, mean the building options with Neolith are limitless! Neolith brings new meaning to the old adage “If you can dream it, you can achieve it.”

Proving its genuine versatility, Neolith is also a great choice for indoor applications like countertops, vanities, flooring, walls, fireplace surrounds, cabinet facing, and more.
