[ About Imperio Benchtops ]

Imperio Benchtops

Solid Core benchtops have some big advantages over stone:

  • Heat resistant up to 220°C
  • Durable and scratch resistant
  • Lighter weight
  • Not contaminated with Silica
  • Much easier to machine and work with
  • Lower material cost than Stone and Acrylic products
  • Superior thermal conductivity (feels warmer to touch than stone)

This new product looks and feels a lot more like stone while being much easier to machine. Introduced to solve the aforementioned issues it is particularly notable for being non toxic and a safe alternative to silica infused stone.
