Ultra Compact Surfaces

The term “Ultra Compact Surface” is used to describe a completely new countertop surface that is made by putting the raw materials found in glass, porcelain, and quartz, under extreme heat and pressure to create an almost indestructible material through a process of “Particle Sintering”.
Brands that we fabricate and install include Sapienstone, Maxfine, Dekton and Neolith, various samples can be viewed in all showrooms.


What makes Ultra Compact Surfaces almost indestructible when installed and secured? It’s the extreme heat and pressure in the manufacturing process. “Ultra-Compact Surfaces” are typically baked at 2200º Fahrenheit and compressed at 5900 pounds per square inch. 


Ultra-Compact Surfaces are resistance to UV Light, heat & Scorch Proof, scratch Resistant, Stain Proof, have low thermal expansion, consistent thickness, infinite design, large slab format, color stability and high abrasion resistance.

Alpha Granite and Tile also work with other Ultra Compact Surfaces such as Neolith, Lapitec, Porcelanosa, Laminam, Florim, Panoramic, Fiandre and Plane.

Alpha Granite and Tile specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of custom Maxfine countertops, floors and wall cladding. Based in Austin Texas we serve the Central Texas region including San Marco, New Braunfels, Wimberley, Canyon Lake, Fredericksburg, Kerrville and Luckenbach.

Dekton employs exclusive Sinterized Particle Technology, a high tech process which represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years.

Sinterized particle technology synthesizes truly innovative procedures from the most advanced technology industries. This evolution represents a technological and industrial leap capable of generating a new process, a revolutionary material and a leading product.

Electronic microscopy allows us to fully appreciate the material’s zero porosity, a consequence of the sinterization and ultra-compaction process exclusive to DEKTON. This zero porosity and lack of the micro-defects that cause tension or weak spots mark the difference as far as DEKTON is concerned.

Sapienstone is the only Ultra-Compact surface that is through body thus allowing the colors of the print surface to flow through the cross section of the material. We stock all the most popular colors of Sapienstone Slabs for your new Sapienstone countertop surfaces, bathroom showers and walls including your flooring projects, fireplaces and outdoor kitchens.
